Its KC again, killing time while my slides incubate...
This morning I found that my wedding band was finally too tight to wear--so after close to 5 years of wearing a ring on my finger, I am ringless and it feels very weird--I remember how conscious I was of that pretty diamond when I first got it and how long it took for me not to know it was there every second, so will it take me as long to get used to not wearing the ring? But I think I've done pretty well, I'm almost a month away from having this baby and I wore my rings longer than anyone I've talked to...it definitely feels like another milestone in this pregnancy though. As I was thinking about it this morning, I found it pretty amusing about how the littlest things were milestones early on (WOW I have a bit of a belly, WOW I can feel her kick) and now, my body and mind are changing daily and I dont notice it as much.
Another thing I was contemplating on my journey to work was how MUCH my thinking and body have changed over the last 8 months...mostly I was realizing how much more confident I am in this whole process than I was to begin with-- overcoming the innate fear of childbirth has been a really recent change--I find myself more and more impatient to hold this little girl and less on my fear of the pain
I cant wait to watch her interact with Justin, to see the world, to experience everything for the first time
Another thing I've noticed about my thinking is that it seems like my brain is no longer in control--call it baby brain or whatever, it feels like cant complete a train of thought, I find myself wandering around the lab without a clue what I was going to go do
anyway I hear its supposed to get worse--great:)
anyway hope everyone has a good day:)
