In the months since I found out that I was expecting, several of my friends have also announced their pregnancies. I can’t even begin to say how excited I am for each of them! We live out of state, so I usually find out via email and inevitably end up letting out a squeal of delight when they tell me their news. I’ve pondered my excitement and decided that it stems from two places.
One, I now know the excitement (and shock!) that comes with a pregnancy – especially a first pregnancy! I’m excited for what they have to look forward to, the way their lives will also be changing. I’m thrilled to be able to share in their joy.
Two, I’m excited that I’m not the only one of my friends going through the crazy, confusing world of pregnancy and expecting your first child! Most of my friends are between the 23-25 range. Besides one other person, I was the first of my friends to start having kids. Now I’m glad to know that the hubster and I are not alone. It makes me feel a little less old and…matronly?
Anyway, congratulations to my beautiful, pregnant friends! I am beyond excited for you
