I feel like I have been focusing on the uncomfortable (yet amusing) parts of being pregnant. It is hard not to, since I feel those things nearly 100% of the time, every single day. But you know that I’m really happy, right?

I mean let’s think about it for a second… A year ago I married the man I wanted to marry. That alone should say it all. But there is more!

After we got married, we bought a house when we wanted to buy a house. And that house really suits our life.

We’ve both enjoyed success in our jobs, moving forward along the trajectories we have chosen for ourselves.

All the while, we’ve kept on loving each other.

I mean… I couldn’t be luckier! Right?

But honestly, the best part is what is happening right now. We decided to get pregnant, and two months later, we succeeded. I got to create a human that is half me, and half the husband that I love, exactly when I wanted to.

So forget about all of the discomfort, the fear, the stress, the fatigue… I am so happy.

To quote Charlotte from Sex and the City: “I have everything I ever wanted. I am so happy that I’m terrified.”
