(2) Tue May 23 2006 09:37: I remember thinking last time I was pregnant if I was ever going to feel normal again. After Lily was born, I did get to feel normal again, so at least I know I can. I just can't help but think that still when everyday I feel like external forces are controlling me and my body.

That's funny. I always thought that was the big difference between pregnancy and adoption.... with pregnancy you were actually in control. But when I think about it, I suppose it probably feels more like the alien inside you is in control. So either way, the acqusition of children leaves one feeling helpless. Or something.Congratulations, by the way!

Tell me about it...there is never a more out of my control point in life than when I'm pregnant, as far as controlling my emotions, weight, etc...I just remind myself that soon it will be more in my control again...and that seeing this little guy come will be so much fun!
