OnSugar Blog: And So It Begins....

Parenting is an exciting, but nerve-wrenching journey for every first time parent. OnSugar blogger Samsmommy81 shares her story on her Surviving Sam blog.

Welcome to my first blog!

Six months ago I never would have thought that I’d have the time to do this. I thought that life as I knew it would never be the same.  No more spare time, no more down time, no more me time, no more sleep time!  But for all those new parents out there...there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Let me start from the beginning. My husband and I knew each other for 10 years before we got married. Yes...you can say it...I did...what the heck was he waiting for?!?! But in the end, the waiting paid off. We were ready for marriage in every sense of the word. Oh except financially...oh and we didn’t have a place to live. BUT we were ready in every OTHER sense of the word.  We were married on August 18, 2007, and we spent the first two years of marriage partying, traveling, spending money, sleeping in, living in a cozy loft and just enjoying each other!

Then suddenly we had an itch....we wanted a baby. So we started trying and it was ALL we thought of. It consumed us.  Keeping track of my cycle, counting days, researching tips.  Months passed and we were ‘positive’-ly exhausted and stressed, but not ‘positive’-ly pregnant.  SO we stopped trying.  Maybe it was a sign??  Maybe it wasn’t the right time??  We decided to wait a little while longer and once I came to terms with this decision I was actually relieved.  Not trying to have a baby meant I didn’t have to be so cautious about what I was eating or drinking!  Well, that freedom only lasted a few months because we unexpectedly became pregnant in February of 2009.Then the panic set in...
