I wanted to tell Chris in person, but I couldn't hold my excitement, so I had to have him call me at work. He was so happy. Last night we went out to dinner and actually caught ourselves laughing, cracking a joke or two, and smiling a lot. It all feels very foreign at this point. Then when we got home, I could hardly keep my eyes open even though it was still fairly early in the evening. We snuggled on the couch and watched our favorite tv show (24), and I fell asleep a few times. Let the tiredness and morning sickness begin!
I feel really bad for feeling happier, but this is what we needed. I'm being constantly reminded of symptoms I had last time I was pregnant with Alice, and while it makes me feel very sad, it also makes me feel very happy that we're having another baby. This time in November 2010, I was still getting used to the fact that I wouldn't be "free" anymore (no partying, late nights, early mornings... basically forgetting about myself and raising a child). I realized that I was going to feel sick, tired, huge, etc. But I was happy. It was a new realm for me and I wasn't used to it yet. But now, I know exactly what's going to happen, how we're going to handle it, and how things are going to be.
By the way... Chris thinks it's a girl. I am leaning more towards a boy. Chinese prediction chart says boy ;). But obviously that's not reliable... or is it???
