When I first discovered I was pregnant there was quite a bit of worry regarding my previous loss. However, I know the chances for this baby to have the same genetic disorder is slim to none. Noah had Meckel-Gruber Syndrome, a rare autosomal recessive disorder that is fatal. The genetic counselor that we met with said we were only the third family known to have this, and it's a HUGE university hospital (the largest in our state I believe) Well, this baby has a different father and quite frankly I couldn't imagine that I'd end up with yet another carrier of this rare gene. So... I pretty much have accepted that this pregnancy won't end like the other.

However, that being said, it is difficult for me to really get excited. I mean, I don't want to buy anything. Nothing. Maybe it's because I don't have a place to put it as I'm crashing with some friends at the moment. Jake wants me to move in with him when the baby is born, but I'm just not sure about it.

I don't know if I'd say I'm necessarily stressed about the pregnancy in particular, but it sure adds to whatever is going on. Lately I just want to curl up in bed and stay there. Hell, some mornings it takes my growling stomach to finally get me up around noon. I wouldn't say I'm depressed, overall I feel fine. Just lacking the motivation to further my life...

I have no clue if that makes any sense.
