Hooked on 5 Weeks: Baby Chip

Guess who is going to have a beating heart by the end of the week?? Yup! thats right! Baby Chip is going to finally have a beating heart! I still cannot believe all this is happening to me.  I asked Arthur to think of a nick name for our little future baby, and we both couldn’t think of one. After thinking about it for a few days, “Baby Chip” came to Arthur’s mind when we were reading the daily baby scoop, and said “your baby is the size of a mini chocolate chip”. So until we find out if our little one is going to be a girl or boy, we will call it Baby Chip. 


Here is a computer generated image I got from www.babycenter.com  that shows what the fetus looks like at this point. How cool is it that this is happening inside me?! 


This is such an amazing experience that I am going through. It’s all true what they say, “you don’t know what someone is going through until it happens to you”. When my best friend was pregnant, she was the most positive pregnant lady I had known, and since it was such a new experience for the both of us, we spent many hours doing research, finding the most informational apps, and looking at pregnancy in a different view. We learned so much more about pregnancy than we never thought we would learn. And yet, now that I am going through my own pregnancy, it’s even more different than I could have imagined it to be. And, of course, just as I was there for my friend, she is there for me every step of the way: from the silliest questions to my biggest fears.

These are my thoughts/concerns this week:

  1. When does the baby bump start to actually show? 
  2. I wonder what my first appointment is going to be like.  I know I have chosen the right doctor for me becuase she had all the qualifications I was looking for in my OB-Gyn. 
  3. I’ve been going back and forward on my biggest fears, and deepest worries, and nothing too serious is coming up (which I think is pretty awesome!). At this point, my fear is the same as everyone else’s… THE PAIN!! 
On a total side note, I finally got the book “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” and am excited to start reading it and getting my husband more involved with the pregnancy. 

What were your thoughts and concerns in your earlier pregnancy days? 

Welcome

Welcome to Hooked On Stories

Have you ever had an idea, and wanted to bring it to life, but no matter what you do, you can’t seem to do it?

I can honestly say that I have had so many different ideas, and started countless different projects, but have never followed through with them. I have tried to think them through and come to a conclusion as to why it is the way it is, and after re-evaluating myself, and my day to day life, I think I have found my answers:

1. We (as a society) are so busy, and have so many responsibilities and obligations, that we don’t have any “me” time.  When we finally have a little of that “me” time, we use it to catch up on things we didn’t have time to do in the first place.

2. We live in a society where there is so much negativity going on, and people try to put others down to make themselves feel better, that we are so busy trying to impress others, we forget about ourselves.

I want to change all that!

I am going to dedicate this blog to unfinished projects, ideas, and thoughts that will find their ending because every project, idea, and thought is inspired by stories. I am Hooked On Stories but they seem to be unfinished. The ending to these stories are incomplete, and I will give them the ending they all deserve. After all, isn’t our life an ongoing story itself?

Maybe by giving my unfinished projects the ending they deserve, my own Life Story will develop and create mini stories within itself.

After all, I am Hooked on the stories these projects have started for me. Lets see where the rest of the stories lead to…
