Familiar

I remember this feeling from those many, many years ago--this desire to withdraw from noise, from concentration, from smells, from food. It hit with surprising force and suddenness a couple of days ago: I feel pregnant. I've said the word "baby" out loud when talking of what's inside of me, and I don't feel like a fraud.

Please stay, little one. Or little two. Please stay.

Bug, I've been trying to post for a couple of days--not sure why I couldn't. I was so excited to hear about the possibility of twins! Twins, Bug! I hope all goes well for you in the coming months and that you start feeling even more pregnant than you do right now. :-)

You are pregnant and it is a baby or two babies inside of you. Congratulations mom!

That is an excellent way to describe the feeling -- a desire to withdraw. So glad you have it.

Fantastic. I told my husband the other day that the worse or stranger I feel physically, the better I feel mentally. I'm not sure that he got it, but he nodded anyway.

Whoohoo! I hope you continue to feel like crap. No offense, of course.

Two is a good number, so is one. So the biggest one is almost six weeks now? Wonderful.

It's so wonderful that you are having these feelings returning. It's so hard to keep positive, and having those around are marvelous. I am so glad.

Great to hear that you're feeling miserable. Glad that you're starting to feel the truth of it all too. Mazel Tov.

Oh Bug...I've just gotten caught up with your news. How spectacular!

Here's to hoping all remains well and selfishly, I'm hoping for two so I'm not the only one who can experience joy squared.

Here's hoping the next months are uneventful, happy, healthy, and easier as each successive day goes by. I'm wishing hard for you that everything is as you hope for this pregnancy.

Little one(s)..Sending my very own plea that you take a look around, notice what a wonderful home and mother you have and make yourselves very comfortable. You won't regret it.

All my love.

I wish you many nauseated hours, as many as it takes for the good feelings to stay. Much like the baby(ies). Bugs has a bun in the oven, yey!

Bugs,

Joining in the global chorus of "stay put little ones."

Wishing you the very best.
