Funny Story:

I had a "women's" doctor's appointment yesterday at 9 am. I was over-due for my yearly exam. And had a small concern.

Apparently, when the following symptoms occur . . .

frequent bathroom stops (I thought I was drinking too much carbonation.)

insatiable hunger (duh . . . the holidays.) fatigue (Ahem, I'm the mother of a three-year-old.)

missed cycles (well, I have no good excuse here except that my regular doctor explained that was due to some changing of my regular prescriptions.)

a few specific cravings (Jeremy can defend me here; this is not so abnormal.)

. . . one might be pregnant. Or in my case . . . 18 WEEKS PREGNANT and in total denial. I even told the nurse, "I'm not pregnant." So, when she showed me the positive test, she asked, "How do you explain this???" Can you believe I responded with, "Maybe my hormones are just a little out-of-wack?" Seriously, until the doppler hit my belly and we instantly heard heart rhythms, I was unconvinced. I said, "Well, you can't fake the heart beat at my navel!!!" I had the nurse, the sonogram-girl (?), and my midwife laughing all morning, along with me. Though I received a few unkindly glares from the other pregnant women in the office. I think I'm still up around cloud #15 or something. When the sonogram ruled the baby's age: 18 weeks, 3 days, 0.53 pounds - Jeremy and I looked at each other in total disbeliefAnd I felt badly, like I've neglected this little one for 4 months!!! Very healthy baby, though! Very happy and shocked mommy and daddy. Very ANXIOUS Harrison, who believes he's housing a little one in his own belly too.

We are due ON MY BIRTHDAY, June 26, 2006Nearly 1/2-way through!!! 
YEAH, truly, I'm not showing yet.  That another miracle!
