James Franco and Other Awesome Pregnancy Items.

I can't remember the last time I've seen a movie starring (or even including) James Franco.  I'm certain I probably have seen one in my lifetime, but I typically fall asleep during movies so whatever movie it was, I can assure you that it was not overly memorable.

Fast forward to last week when I woke up to find half of a banana on my nightstand.  I was confused at first before I remembered getting up in the middle of the night, wandering to the kitchen, and eating the other half of that banana.  Why you ask?  Because in my vivid dream, James Franco was breaking into our house to steal all of our food.  Being the good mother-to-be that I am, I decided that I needed to get Baby W nutrients before the inevitable James Franco attack.

In short, I had no idea what I was getting myself into while determined to get pregnant!  No idea what pregnancy would do to me.

And, similarly, I had no idea what I was getting into in sharing my last post.  Thank you all for visiting the blog, commenting on Facebook, sending text messages, sending private messages, calling, writing, thinking of us or leaving the post without a second thought.  I am a marketing director so I understand, to some extent, the power of social media.  But, it's easy to get caught up in the annoyances of these new mediums of connection.  It was such a great reminder that these tools are here so we can share and document our stories.

I ran the post by Andy before I hit the fear-inducing "publish" button as he is the logic to my emotional tendencies.  At some point he asked why I was posting, and I explained that I truly felt the desire to help someone who was feeling the same confusion that I often felt.  And, words help me so I hoped that they would do the same for someone else.

I've previously explained that I never felt becoming a mother was a an absolute must for me.  Did I hope to start a family?  Yes.  But, I knew I would find my way if that was not an option.  This is in contrast to many other people who are struggling to start their family, I know.  But, I also know that each person's unique feelings during the process are just that, unique.  And, we all deserve to feel that we're not alone.  So, thank you for reading and make this a community for just that - even for just a day or two!

And, here are a few additional photos of the past 17+ weeks.  Excuse the background messes and occasional weird faces.  I have been exhausted and pukey!
