My mother-in-law came over today with our very first baby gift. It's a cute little plush duck, and cute little baby shoes with ducks. Did I mention how cute the stuff was?
I'm still pretty overwhelmed that we are actually producing a little person who will wear those shoes and play with that duck.
Part of me really wants to just tear into Target and start grabbing baby stuff right and left. The other part of me is terrified.
What if we lose the baby? I'm only at 5 weeks now, and it just feels like the baby is so, so vulnerable. Seven years of infertility intensifies the normal parental fears.
I have to find a balance of enjoying this time in our lives, but yet preparing myself in case the worst happens.
