Why a blog?
I feel like I have so much to say. I feel different, and I feel like it should be evident that I'm different. We are doing this huge, big thing. Can't you tell just by looking at me? But people can't tell, and I'm not supposed to tell too many people. I can say that we are trying, or soon we'll be trying, but not go into too much detail. Because what if I don't get pregnant? What if it takes more than a year? Do I really want people asking me about it all of the time? So who do I talk to? I certainly have people to talk to. My partner, of course. And some friends. But I've got a lot to say, and it's on my mind all of the time, and we don't even start doing this for real until June. So I need somewhere to process my thoughts, to keep track of them so that I don't lose them. To get them out of me so that they stop running around my head. And I could do that with a personal journal, but this way, if people want to know, they can know what I'm thinking. The few friends I choose to share this with can check in as often as they want, or not at all. But at least it's off my mind.
