Thought vs. Reality || Pregnancy
Thought: I'd be buying baby clothes left and right.
Reality: The thought of shopping makes me cringe. The crowds, the crowds, did I mention the crowds?
Thought: I'd for sure suffer from morning sickness.
Reality: Only had minor nausea in the afternoons for three weeks.
Thought: I'd eat anything and everything I wanted.
Reality: Some of my old favorites are just not that appealing. Give me all the toast and cereal!
Thought: I would be living, breathing, sleeping baby.
Reality: Being a teacher has me so busy, most days I have to remind myself I'm pregnant.
Thought: I'd get way bigger, faster.
Reality: A growing belly takes time.
Thought: I wouldn't exercise or really want to.
Reality: That was true the first trimester, but so far I've proven myself wrong in the second trimester. The gym has been my friend lately.
Thought: We would have a name picked out.
Reality: The thought of what you will call your kid the rest of their life is more daunting than I imagined.
Thought: I'll probably read some books to figure things out.
Reality: When my head hits the pillow I am out.
Thought: Chris is going to be a nervous wreck until the baby comes.
Reality: He can't stop talking about our little guy.
Tomorrow I will be 18 weeks. Time is flying!
