Baby Brain: The Magic of it All

It is 2:30 in the morning and I cannot sleep, partially because I cannot get my brain to turn off and partially because I took a four hour nap this afternoon. So I am on the web surfing for anything and everything baby. To some it may be strange that I am starting to pick things out for a nursery and starting to prepare checklists. Mr. Rogue and I only JUST started trying to get pregnant this month exactly on target for our plan, but for those who know me, well I like to get things done and I like to be prepared.

Lately I am recording my basal temperature in the mornings. And its not because I am trying to time my ovulation like a crazy woman that will come if I am not pregnant after six months I am sure, but because I am preparing in case we do have problems and because I am curious how this all works. I want to be careful not take the magic out of the moment. When my mother’s generation were starting families they did not chart and plan and predict, instead they let nature take its course and the world is pretty well populated. So I am working on staying calm, because working myself up and thinking about it too much will make it technical and like work. And I want to do everything I can to preserve the magic.

Because becoming pregnant and giving birth to a human is magic.
