This is going to sound crazy to…well, everyone, but sometimes I forget I’m not pregnant. I know that I was “only” pregnant for 9 days (that I knew of anyway) but sometimes I find myself having thoughts that I had during my short pregnancy.
Whenever I get a headache, I remind myself that I cannot take Excedrin and only Tylenol…until I remember.
Whenever I want a second cup of coffee, I tell myself that I shouldn’t because of the baby…until I remember.
Whenever I have the urge to take a hot bath, I tell myself I can’t…until I remember.
Whenever I feel like having a glass of wine with dinner, I remind myself that I can’t…until I remember.
I also occasionally think about baby names and visit baby related websites.
It seems so crazy to me that I can temporarily forget when it also consumes so many of my thoughts. The mind acts in crazy ways, I guess.
So, here’s to tonight. I’m NOT pregnant, so I’m relaxing with a glass of wine as I wait for the husby to get home. And guess what? It’s not even dinner time yet. 🙂
