Baby - Week 4

So, dear readers, I think I owe you an apology. In advance.

One thing I've noticed about being pregnant is that suddenly, shockingly, I am completely without reservations when talking about bodily functions. It's like my frontal lobe, the part of the brain responsible for impulse control and judgement has poof! disappeared. Or been significantly shrunk. Want to hear about my inability to even open the refrigerator door without gagging? Or how well acquainted I now am with our toilet, thanks to morning sickness? Or how..

I didn't think so. 

The rational part of my brain (whichever part that is), understands that you probably don't want to hear about all this, but the emotional, hormonal me is having a hard time coming to grips with reality. 

So, I am sorry. For all the things that you're likely going to have to endure for the next several months. I hope it doesn't drive too many of you away. Really, there are other things happening in my life; this just happens to be the one that is the most encompassing at the moment.
