The Bump

Dear Mom,
If you read my blog, please do not get excited. I'm not pregnant.

I've told you about the Knot before and the Nest, but I'm new to the world of the Bump. I'm guessing you can figure out what it's about, but if not I attached those handy little links.

I originally went on the site because I knew they had message boards and I wanted to see if they had one for SAHM (more commonly known as stay-at-home-moms). I just wanted to see what they talked about, and I was a little interested about their attitudes about staying home. I mean, I think I would love staying at home. I've had three days off this week and it had rocked so far. I've gotten so much done...but everyone tells me I'd be so bored if I stayed home all the time. I'd like to at least try it out instead of taking their word for it.

So I read a little on the SAHM mom board, and then I looked around to see what other topics there were. They have lots of different boards, which I'm sure are very helpful to MANY women, but I have to be honest, I was afraid to go in and see what they were talking about.

I emailed Megan a link to one girl's blog. She hired a professional photographer to come in and document the birth of her child. There weren't any action shots or anything, but there was a photo of the baby when it first came out and wasn't cleaned off or anything, and I was horrified. I'm pretty sure I audibly sucked in a gasp of air. It wasn't pretty.

I was just clicking on the boards again and ended up on one called "Baby Names". Everyone was asking everyone else what they should name their child. I'm sorry, but I will be damned if I let a stranger name my baby. That is just me though.

There is one board that I absolutely will not click on. I keep thinking about it, but I'm way too scared. It's called "Birth Stories" and I just don't think I'm ready for that. But my curiosity wants to know whats in there, but I'm sure if I click my life will never be the same. My friend Amber told me one time about an experience she had in her doctors office shortly before the birth of her first daughter, and I have never forgotten what she told me. I am literally terrified.

Amber just told me she is having her second baby, so maybe I can have her tell me some more awful stories so I can get more used to it.

Isn't it super scary though?

This will not be me. This will not be me. This will not be me.
Do not click...it will not play.
