JUST found out I'm pregnant. At first I was so excited and then quickly became terrified about my age (will be 37 at delivery). For some reason it just dawned on me how fragile these little people are and how common it can be for something bad to happen...especially after 35. Ugh! I took a bath last night and tried to focus on the postive but quickly I began freaking out about getting my hair dyed recently, my serious coffee drinking habit, the alcoholic beverages I consumed on my last weekend trip with my husband. Ahh!!!!
I never thought about this stuff with my first child. I was too concerned about how much my life would change, if I was ready, etc. It's kind of amazing how self-absorbed my first pregnancy concerns were. It didn't really occur to me that I should be most focused on having a healthy baby. Now that I'm older that's all I can think about!
