Stages of pregnancy:
1. I think I am.
2. I know I am.
3. I am so sick!
4. What was I thinking?
5. Will this ever be over?
6. Who knew I could stretch this much?
7. This is taking too long.
8. O-O-O-O-W-W-W!
9. My baby is so beautiful
10. Now what?
There is nothing more exciting than giving birth and after 6 children I finally gave birth to my first book. It took longer than 9 months too--I might add-- but I went through the same painful stages.
From its conception, through the ups and downs, the stretching and pains of actually finishing it, my book is now off to the printer. I saw my cover for the first time today. It may be a mother’s perspective but I think it’s beautiful. Now what?
A new adventure begins. Bonding with technology and learning all the ins and outs of the marketing world may be a lot less tiring than nursing a baby but it is every bit as painful and a lot more stressful.
One thing I have learned; time does indeed fly swiftly by. This time around I will cherish the birth and savor the process.
Take a peek at my baby.

Happy Mother's Daze

Love, Annie
