Ohhhhh, We’re Halfway There!

Aaaaaaaaand we have an answer….


We have a son on his way!  I’m so excited for SteveKam – I just know they are going to be the best of buddies.  🙂  All I can think about is how this little dude is going to want to be just like his Dad… and how I couldn’t imagine a better role model for my little guy.  We’re having a tiny SteveKam!  I mean, get out!  From the looks of the ultrasound, he’s even got his button nose.

We’re 20 weeks along – the official halfway mark of the pregnancy.  Well, good.  Because, people – and I am going to be brutally honest here – I am getting tired of being pregnant.  Oh, yes, it’s magical and sparkly and full of rainbows and all that – sure.  Some days.  But other days, you just feel fat, tired, ugly as a piece of roadkill with a temperament to match.  Hormones are raging these days and I have to say I am exhausted by the peaks and valleys.  I know I have 4 and half MORE months to look forward to, but at least having hit the halfway point… well, it’s something.  I’ll take it.  🙂

The past few days are a prime example.  I hit a 36 hour (or so) period of just feeling blue beyond consolation.  There were tears.  There was a sleepless night.  There were more tears.  There was an urge to either throw something through a window or set it on fire. There was shouting at the top of my lungs in the kitchen, “I HATE BEING PREGNANT!”  There was a sobbing phone call to my Mom in Switzerland asking her what the Hell was wrong with me.  (To which she basically replied, “Nothing, honey.  You’re pregnant.”)

And then … it passed.

And I felt the little fella move and I went shopping for baby clothes with my sisters and had some Indian food for dinner and smiled and laughed and felt like a normal human being again.

So, we’re back to the sparkly, magic rainbows.  For now.

Halfway there!  Halfway there!  (my mantra until we’re like 3/4 of the way there… hee hee)
