    Oh girlfriend this is absolutely wonderful. I'm very much in the "don't need/want a baby" phase and feel like I'd probably have a similar reaction if I found myself pregnant–but I've always said if it happens it happens. Love this!

    I personally love this. We're starting the baby conversation in my house and while I know we both want children, I often worry what having them will do for our lifestyle. We love traveling, we love doing new and different things whenever we feel like it and I know it will be different once there are little ones to think about. Plus with my husband being in the military, there's always a wrinkle or two in every plan. But I take a lot of comfort in knowing that other people think about that as well and so many couples seem to make the transition just fine.

    Love this, I can't imagine all the emotions you've been through the past several months. You've got this gurlie, and you have an absolutely wonderful husband by your side every step of the way <3

    Your writing is always so beautiful- I love this post and I love your take on things. Thank you also for reminding me that NO ONE knows everything about taking care of a baby- I know I don't ha!

    So beautiful, Chelsea. I had to keep myself from crying (only because I'm in a public place! lol). I loved the part about beer and sushi-I think I will miss having sushi the most!

    Love this! All the feels. As someone who hopes to get pregnant soon, I already miss beer.

    This is amazing, such a great summary of feelings. Sending to a friend who had a surprise pregnancy too.

    This is so true and spot on. And really about the beer. Pregnancy is the one time I really felt like I needed a drink but couldn't have one.

    I absolutely love this. I have no idea what you're going through, but you've just given me a little peek into what you're experiencing, and I think you sound so so happy.

    I LOVE this! I think my letter would be very similar. While it wasn't exactly in the cards right now, we're making it in the cards. While we may not have a single clue about how to be parents, we'll learn as we go. So excited for you!

    Awe, so perfect though. Like you said, no one really knows until they've been there, done that. Congratulations on your pregnancy! All that matters is your own happiness and remember, everything happens for a reason šŸ™‚

    This is so perfect and so true! I was a mess when I found out I was pregnant with my son, but I couldn't imagine life without him now!

    I love this! I think about how pregnancy will alter our lives all the time. It's like the future is talking to me! haha

    Such a cute letter. It is okay to have the fear, because it is life changing even if it is for the better. It is change and that is scary. You can totally do it though.

    I may have to steal this idea of writing a letter to my "normal" self. I mean, pre-pregnant me. It's so amazing how all of the sudden all your plans and dreams change and you just can't imagine not including a little one in your plans at this time next year. And yet, as much as you already love this little one and can't imagine life without them… life without a glass of wine is just… torture!

    So many emotions! So excited for you and the next chapter of your life – even though it was unplanned (like most things in life are)!
