    Ok.. So I'm only 5 weeks and 3 days pregnant.. but OMG.. It feels like its going to be years not 8 months before this baby will be born. I've known now for 2 weeks that we are pregnant and time is just crawlllllllingggg by... And I don't feel anything yet which almost makes this not seem real yet. Get me to the point where i have a bump or something gosh darn it.
    Just wanted to put this statement out there in the universe since i can't say it anywhere else b/c we haven't told anyone yet.
    I'm just being silly is all... :wacko:

    Claudia - took the words out of my mouth!! i guess when your TTC you find out early as well so those first couple of weeks where not much seems to happen and its too early to do anything just make it seems so long!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Its crawling by for me, too... but I am happy with that. Too often when I look back at my first pregnancy, it seemed slow at the time, but looking back, it went by entirely too fast. I love being pregnant, and am going to soak up every last second of it that I can! :)

    LOL Honestly, I found out at 3+5 and w/ the new due date after the ultra sound I'm 9+2... Time is going so slowly, but so quickly at the same time!!! Good things it's 9 months, so little yet so much time to get everything done!!

    One day at a time I suppose... These little tickets are perfect though, gives you a lot of info and they're uber cute :)

    We found out at 4+4 and time still drags. We're always looking forward to the next appointment, which is always forever away!

    Yup... Someone at work today actually said to me.. "Claudia... you look like your losing weight".. which I understand because I was trying to lose weight before i got pregnant and lost about 15 pounds.
    I just said thanks and yeah I had lost a little weight. What I wanted to say was "wait till you see me in 5 - 6 months.. I"m gonna be HUGE!!!!!"... :rofl:
    Ah well.. All in good time.. and I'm sure at some point we all will feel like its going to fast.. But for now.. HURRY UP DARN IT!!
    I'm excited to find out if its a boy or girl.. For now I call it poppy for poppyseed. And even that is another 15 weeks away because they don't tell you the sex at our hospital here so I have to book in with one of those 3D baby scan places which they say you have to wait until 20 weeks before you can go for gender identification.

    I feel like its dragging on forever, but I am 10 weeks, i found out at 3+6 and it really feels like that was not 6 weeks ago! Now we're almost at the point of telling people and I can't believe it. But I look forward and it's like, December feels so far away. But I'm sure the time will really fly by for all of us as we look back after LO's are here.

    I was just telling my husband this earlier! We just found out that I am pregnant yesterday at 13dpo and now I just wish that I could go to sleep tonight and wake up at 8 weeks so I can stop feeling quite so nervous!

    The first trimester is boring and usually miserable.
    The second tri gets a little more interesting (showing, and movement).

    I'm actually in no hurry to have this baby out.
    It's safe where it is. Once it's out in the world... it's no longer as safe as it is now.
    For one thing, it's going to be in someone else's care for over 8 hours a day while I work.
    At least now, it's with me all the time.

    Its funny that you should mention being in someone elses care. I'll be off for my babys first year and then going back to work. But my work has a day care for staff and today as I watched the kids go to the playground from my office and saw my co workers go out to give their little ones a hug I got so excited about how that will be me some day. But heck.. thats almost two years away and I'm no where near ready for that day to come. :)
