I am in utter shock that we are in the SECOND TRIMESTER today! I NEVER thought we would see this day... I think it still hits me sometimes that we are actually going to have a baby! These last few days I have allowed myself to have unabashed joy and now my mind is racing a mile a minute on all of the things we will need for baby! I was SO overwhelmed looking at the registries online!! I am not sure I want to register at stores! WOWZA is all I can say about the amount of baby products available nowadays, it has definitely come a looong way since I had a little one.. People have started asking me if I am having a baby shower.. I say "No".. Then they give me a weird look. Then I feel bad, lol.. The reason I am not having a shower (that I know of since there is NO WAY in hell I am throwing myself a shower (that's super ghetto isn't it!?!?!)) is because aside from my Dad and Aunt, NO one in my family that I would want at my shower lives near us. And I work for myself so I don't venture far from my house much unless it is looking for an awesome deal to sell on e.Ba.y so I don't have many friends here either. All of my friends and family are either in TX or scattered in other states up the east coast. Makes it hard for them to get together, so we pretty much knew going in that we would be buying all of our stuff, aside from the things people sent us and we are TOTALLY ok with that! But it makes me feel bad when people ask me "why not?" I usually give a snarky answer then I feel like a bitch.. I know I'm weird. Anyway, do I HAVE to have a shower?? Christy said a friend of hers is giving us a shower because she wants to.. I cried.. I guess she is doing it to honor Christy for being our surrogate, but they are buying stuff for our baby.. Very cool of her friend.. This post is all over the place and I didn't mean for it to be, lol! SO much is going through my mind right now... I think looking at all of the baby stuff on the registry pages and thinking about actually having a baby by Thanksgiving is starting to overload my brain!
