I went to the doctor yesterday. Not to the doctor I've gone to in the past, not the OBGYN, just the OB. Yes, she's the same woman, but she's not the same woman. She's not just treating me, she's treating us.

Vitamins and blood work and exams and questions and pamphlets to look at and books to read and classes to attend and limitations on caffeine and take this aspirin if you need to and keep exercising and STAY AWAY FROM THE TANNING BED FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, not just the rest of your pregnancy.

Our relationship will be beautiful, as long as she makes it back from her vacation in February to deliver this peanut.

Your reminding me of all that great first time pregnancy excitement that ceases to exist once you hit #5. :) Thank you.

Oh, congrats again Natalie. Isn't it all just SO amazing? You have life growing inside of you! And your life will never be the same, but it's such a wonderful change! Enjoy it all, even the uncomfortable parts b/c they're so worth it.
