This is it!
Today is finally the day. We're leaving for our ultrasound in only a few short minutes and we are both so excited we didn't sleep though the night all that well. I kept having dreams over and over and waking up thinking maybe it was time. The darkness outside was clearly a hint that it wasn't time to get up. I'm 19 weeks today and it shows. I started taking belly pics at 16 weeks and the gradual bulge is clear. Yesterday when I was passing though LA to go home from San Diego we met up with Jason for a quick lunch and I parked in a compact parking spot. It was the first time ever that I underestimated the size of my belly and because of it was unable to open the door wide enough without hitting the car beside me to squeeze out. Of course Ryan enjoyed this immensely and said "I should have taken a picture of that."
If thats underestimating, I'm now overestimating my ability to remember information. It has become clear, particularly at work, that I am no longer operating with the same clarity as I did before pregnancy. I forget important information, I flat out deny that I've ever heard information that I find out later I had... I learned I must doubt my usually iron clad memory. Man that sucks. Its all for a good cause and certainly, having ADD has taught me to adapt to having a brain that processes information differently. I'm just glad to know that it is probably temporary. I'm told I should get my old brain back not terribly long after this pregnancy is through. Cross your fingers for me!
