Re: Is there really a baby in there?

I feel the same way, don't feel bad!  I've had my first ultrasound, heard the heart beat, AND saw it move like crazy (not sure why, but I completely did not expect the moving part!) and I'm certain that it hasn't all really sunk in for me yet.  Lol.  I'm sure these feelings are normal, just like with any other major life change, it takes a while to sink in.  Just the fact that my body can grow another person is unbelieveable to me.  I know all of these things in my head, but to comprehend that they are really happening inside me right now is hard to take in.  It's all such a miracle that something so complicated can be created in such a short time anyway.  I have a feeling it will not truly hit me until the baby gets here and even then it will be hard to believe that I am actually someone's mother.  Hang in there, you're not the only one feeling that way!  :-)
