8 weeks today! 32 to go!

I am getting so excited!!! The baby is about the size of a raspberry. Crazy to think that 6 weeks ago it wasn't more than two cells big. I have to stay this has made me enjoy the development section even more. Even though it kills me to know all of the development problems that can occur. Do you have any idea how hard it is to know so many things than can be going wrong right now? I just pray that God will wrap his hands around our child and allow all to be well.

I keep getting in trouble with my husband for buying things. All I have bought are some books and a really cool breast feeding cover up that I really got for free. I just had to pay shipping. use code Family2010 This automatically take $32 off of your order. This would make a great present for any expecting mother that plans on breast feeding. How can I not want to order stuff when Joe sends me a link for this?

 I really wanted to go through this experience with someone. I thought I was going to be several months behind friends that are also pregnant, but it appears everyday I learn of someone else that is expecting around the same time that I am. One of my really good friends from middle school told me that she is due on the same day. How crazy is that? I have had another couple of friends let me know in confidence that they are expecting. I will talk more about them once they have shared it with the world.

I feel like this is going to be the longest process in the world. Why can't we get pregnant, and then have a baby 8 weeks later? That would be perfect? I just keep trying to break the time down by looking forward to the different things that are going to happen between now and then. Thirty days from Joe and I will set sail for the Bahamas. This is our first cruise. I am very excited about it. I hope that I am past the morning sickness phase, but still in the normal clothes stage. Joe has started buying things for me once size larger. It is kind of bitter sweet for me. I loved getting into a small or extra small, but Old Navy has some really cute dresses and skirts that I think will serve me well over this crazy hot summer. I am ten weeks away from finishing my first year of medical school. I will be honest, there was a point around Christmas when I wasn't sure this would happen. Neurology is NOT going to be speciality. This semester has been a lot more fun for me. I enjoy physiology and the anatomy of the chest. Thursday concluded my OB/GYN elective. I LOVED it! I am convinced more and more that OB/GYN is my future field. I loved every aspect of my elective. I didn't get to see any baby's being born, but Dr. Holsten (my wonderful OB) told me that I can spend all the time I want with her this summer. Since I am no longer going to Peru for five weeks, I think I may turn shadowing into my goal for the summer. The only problem is that I won't make any money. I am still employed with WellStar so I may try to get some time in there this summer.

Ok! Enough for now! I must study for my exams on Monday! Take care and say a prayer for our little blueberry!

You are just the cutest. I know you feel like it will never get here, my advice even tho you didn't ask for it is...enjoy every minute, I loved being pregnant. And given a chance to do it all over again, I would. You will never feel anything like this ever, it is a true miracle and this little fruit salad that you are creating will be sooooo worth the wait, love you both, Carla
