I bought a bottle of prenatal vitamins at Walmart today. (Just in case).
Now every single thing I do, Tim says, “You’re pregnant.”
He said it when I ate a spoonful of peanut butter last night (but seriously – peanut butter is an awesome snack, am I right?).
He said it when I told him I was tired this afternoon (but seriously – I DID stay up until past 2am last night).
Even so, I’m taking the necessary precautions. No more wine or soft cheeses or deli meats.
“I’m not ready to be pregnant again,” I told Tim this afternoon, “but I AM ready for another baby.” Our always-listening-4-year-old spoke up, “Yeah! The baby is the best part!” “True,” I looked down at her – wanting to be sure that she internalized the right message, “but there is something special and important about the waiting part too.”
A few nights ago, I was doing a little dance in the kitchen. (I break out into random dances quite frequently). Our 4-year-old suddenly said with a smile, “You won’t be able to dance like that when you’re pregnant!” “Oh, yes I will,” I grinned back, “just like this” (and then I put out my hands around my imaginative belly and waddle-danced).
I might be pregnant. (Or, just as likely, I might not).
