Retail Therapy

One year ago this morning, I got the faintest pink line on a pregnancy test.

Today I went out and bought myself some new maternity clothes. It's silly but it made me feel excited. I'm starting to let myself believe i might actually get a baby out of this. It scares the sh%t out of me.

Boy if we've learned anything at all, it's to enjoy it, every minute of it! I am glad you are letting yourself be excited, it should be exciting!
I can't imagine how scared you must be, and how brave too.
Shopping....that's definatly a GOOD SIGN:)

Checked in on you to find you enjoying the moment. Good for you. It made me smile to read this post as well as your previous one. Sometimes, I read and want to be you when I grow up. Wishing you peace of mind to bask in the current bliss!

I love the retail therapy. I partake in it much too often, hoping to fill a void that was left a few months back. I hope it did the job for you today. So happy you are excited. What else do we got really? XO.

I bought a lot of new maternity clothes after Jimmy because wearing the clothes when I wore with him were too sad. I still have the shirt I was wearing when Jimmy passed. I'm going to have my mother work it into her next patchwork quilt for Andy.

I'm glad you are starting to believe in this pregnancy. But remember, if you have doubts, its ok. It won't affect the outcome. I never really truly believed I was going to be able to take a baby home and I did. But it sure does feel better to believe in it.

Enjoy every minute of this, I'm so happy that you are able to be excited. Like Monica said just don't worry when you can't be.
Retail therapy, ahhhh, so shallow but I love it!

The scary thing about being "freaky" is I only picked the things I thought weren't "too freaky" for public consumption! What does that say about me????? YIKES!
You can consider yourself tagged too, cuz I can:)
