Yesterday was the scariest day of my pregnancy so far. There was always a fair chance that would be the case, given that the 20-week anatomy scan was scheduled for that date.
Before I got pregnant, I thought I knew a lot about pregnancy. In retrospect, I realize that I knew a lot about pregnancy as it’s generally portrayed on TV and in movies.
Chalk it up to hormones, or the fact that we had to wait so long and thought it might never happen, but I’m really enjoying being pregnant.
The doctor frowned at the screen. "If you don't get your period next week, I want you to come in for a blood test. It wouldn't totally surprise me if you were already pregnant." That's bananas, I thought. And at the same time, I also thought, I am definitely, totally pregnant. I'm the most pregnant. I'm getting an A in pregnancy.
