On my mind much?

I'm not sleeping at night now.  Either the minute creature inside of me is some sort of insomniac in training or I am worried.  I woke up at 2 this morning and lay there for a few minutes, savoring the fact that I'm pregnant.  I feel like my mind doesn't want to sleep because I don't want to miss a single second of this experience. 

When I did sleep last night I had the funniest dream.  I dreamt that someone had put an editorial cartoon into an infection control magazine.  The picture was of two scientists sitting at a desk with a complicated formula.  The formula had many brackets and unknown variables and my name was there as one of the variables.  The purpose of the magazine was to point out that my temperature was elevated and I represented a likely infection risk to the city. 
The formula looked like this... but my name was in the middle

In my dream it was my mother who showed me the comic and she shook her head talking to me saying "I can't believe they don't realize you are pregnant."

My reaction in my dream was to stare at my mother in stunned silence, unable to shake my head, or deny or anything.  I remember thinking in my dream "How can I surprise you if you figure this out on your own?"

Obviously this is because I have in my head a way I want to tell my family.  My father's birthday is very close to father's day and I will be about 10 1/2 weeks at that time.  I am hoping that I can give my father one of those grandfather memory books and tell them we are going to need it back in January.

  1. Ah, pregnancy dreams- so vivid and strange. At least this one wasn't unpleasant- I had the worst nightmares with every one of my pregnancies.

    Your plan for telling your family sounds perfect. Can't wait to hear all about it! ;)
