Am I Excited?

Just a heads up for all of you who have never been pregnant…the most common response to “I am pregnant” is “Are you excited?”. I will be honest; at first I thought this was a ridiculous question. Of course I am excited! Ecstatic…overwhelmed… overjoyed…a little scared…but definietly excited. Now I have realized that it is the polite way to say “were you planning?” Which I think is also a strange question. I don’t think people used to ask that in my parents day…quite a personal question I think. Don’t get me wrong…I am in no way offended by either of these questions; they just strike me as a bit strange. I always wonder how these things came to be. So that said…Daniel and I are excited and I think it was God planning it more then me. 🙂
Here is a picture of me…excited…at 14 weeks. Not showing too much yet, although I hear that it is in the near future. Stay tuned for more pictures of me when I get nice a fat!

  1. Well, we are definitely excited!!! We’ve been excited since the moment you told us we were going to be grandparents again. Plus Baby James can hardly wait to have a cousin to play with.

  2. I didn’t show ’til 7 months. see if you can beat that! I’m excited for you, but I’ll be happier when meatball gets a name or at least a gender. Enjoy the process. Relax!
    Love,mom

  3. Love your thoughts.(Love you!) They are a window into your mind and how it works. I never thought about the questioners agenda of “Are you excited?”

  4. No, I will not take them weekly. I think it would be hard to see much of a change. But I will take one a month (I think it is fun to see and fun to scrapbook later!). 14 weeks is just at 3 months. 🙂

  5. Excited, yes, but also proud of my younger sister! proud of her career advancement and her choices in life. Proud that she walks the walk and does not just talk the talk. Now a mom to be! wow! Great news!

  6. I am soooo excited! Lil meatball in my cute crock(pot) of a sister.. Can’t wait until we know more details- boy, girl? 🙂 Pretty cool that I will have both of you in the wedding:) couldn’t be more special to me… xoxo D.
