Tee Hee.... Well let's see. I'm from Michigan but I've lived in quite a few other states. Back in the mitten for now. I'm hoping it's not forever. I work as a bartender in an itty bitty little local bar. I love it but realize that it's probably not the best enviroment for a pregnancy. In my free time I read fiction, as much as I can get my hands on. I just picked up Neil Gaimens new book last night and I'm off to read more of it when I get off the puter. This will be my first child, it was completely unplanned. I got knocked the first time that we did the deed. It turns out that we actually like each other though! I really think that it's all going to turn out ok. I know it's not what I had hoped and dreamed for but I know this child will have two parents and a huge extended family that will always love "it". I want to say "her" but I don't want to jinx it.
What part of Michigan are you from? (if you arent comfortable saying its ok, I understand) I have some family that lives up there!
Thats good that you guys like each other, I bet it was a bit odd breaking that news.
so how you do like being prego so far?
I was born in Nothern Michigan, spent middle school through my early 20's in Central Michigan and now I'm on the West Coast of the state. Where I'm at now is definately my favorite but I still want to move!
I was terrified to tell him! We had only known each other a month when I found out. My mother told me that I was not allowed to tell him in a text message so I decided to go in person. I have a face that doesn't hide anything so as soon as I walked in he knew something was up. At first he was completely supportive and really good about it. A few days later he did freak out majorly. He wanted to discuss abortion but I told him that I couldn't do it. I am pro choice but I felt like if I were to abort it would be for selfish reasons and I couldn't do that. He came around quickly and we have since met each others parents and have made our relationship official. We're planning on finding a place together in June. He is a fantastic man and I think he is going to be a great father no matter what happens between us as a couple.
So far pregnancy hasn't been so bad. I've been wicked tired and super emotional both of which are completley unlike me so that's been hard. My boobs are killing me and getting huge. I'm thankfull that I haven't had any morning sickness, just an upset tummy when I don't eat regularly. I'm stressed out on one hand and I have a feeling of everything will be ok on the other. I'm leaning towards everything being ok...
We're going to dinner with his parents at a fancy resturant in Muskegon tomorrow! I can't remember the name of it but I'm a bit nervous because I don't really do the dress up thing. My sister gave me a really cute sundress that I think I'm going to try out but it makes me look like I'm already showing because of the empire waist. Oh well. I'm really just looking forward to the meal and hoping that his parents stop trying to push marriage on us! Not that I'm opposed to marriage it's just that don't want a "shotgun" to be involved.
