Me, five years ago, not caring.
Wow, the beauty of hindsight.  One year ago today, who would've thought that this guy would be expecting a baby.  Certainly not this guy.  At all.  Ever.  What was I doing on this day last year?  I have no idea.  I have no idea because I didn't keep a diary.  Because I didn't need to.  Because it didn't matter about what I was doing.  I didn't have appointments to go to with doctors at hospitals.  I didn't have books to read about pregnancy diets or Kegel exercises. No.  All I had to do was play with my dog and play rugby, and I was happy.  Oh, also Megan, I had to look after her, too.  

Two years ago I was probably out playing golf with my dad or something.  Three years ago I was in pre-deployment training before a peacekeeping mission with the Australian Army.  Four years ago I was probably partying somewhere on Bondi Beach.  Now, though, I am here.  Knitting.  

Please don't get me wrong - I'm incredibly excited about having a baby.  It's the greatest thing in the world and I can't wait to experience it.  I worry, though, about how difficult it will be.  However, let's hope that we can share some of our experiences so that anyone reading can maybe learn something, or at the very least, have a good laugh.
