Week 6 1/2
I always thought that when I was finally pregnant, it (the side effects) wouldn't hit me for awhile. WRONG! I can't sleep through the night - having to get up 2 or 3 times for the bathroom. I can actually feel what's going on in there and it is strange! And I can't believe how tired I am! I get one poor night of sleep and my sleep habits are off for atleast a week. But I am still so thrilled! I am so dang nervous to tell my family though. I wanted to tell them this weekend, but it was fair week and EVERYONE was in a pissy mood. I'll probably just tell them over the phone because I don't think I could face disappointment right now (if they are). I don't know why I'm so afraid to tell them. I'm married and we're doing great supporting ourselves.... I guess I just seek approval too much and I know that they think this is a bad time for me. But how bad could it be? I got pregnant while I was on birth control so I know this is what Heavenly Father thinks is good for me. Yes, we're both in school, and work for our landlord, but we're working out the kinks (we have plenty of time) and it'll be great.
Throughout my late adolescense and adulthood, I have had many positions (professionally and volunteer basis) that have helped me develop skills necessary to serve as a liaison to the community on behalf of a professional organization. I have spent many years in various organizations which have helped me grow skills such as public speaking, note taking, and scheduling. I am proficient in organization and mediation – always keeping the mindset of finding middle ground and while meeting the needs of those involved. I excel in the area of community outreach and thrive in situations where I am given reign to be creative and managerial. I am committed to achieving the best outcome and feel I have many fantastic qualities to contribute to any organization.
