I just want to preface this by saying, I'm not an overly excitable person by nature, so sometimes my reaction to certain things throws people off.
I always get the question "Are you excited?!", as most pregnant women do, when people get a look at my belly. Of course I am, however my way of expressing that comes off a little lackluster.
I really can't wait for this little one to be here. I just have a more realistic view on all the physical and emotional changes coming my way. I'm not one of those people who are daydreaming all the time about how magical a newborn will be. I know it will be hard and stressful, and slightly sucky until I'm adjusted.
Unfortunately you really can't say, "Sure, I'm excited...for the suck fest to be over" that's frowned upon apparently.
Anyone else getting the "misunderstood" vibe when it comes to your level of excitement for things to come?
Side note: I'm not stressing about having a baby, just being realistic about what this little bundle of miraculous mayhem will bring 8-}
