The Capricorn child may be born looking like an old soul. This physical attribute will shift as the baby finds its childhood bearing, but the presence of an "old soul" will be apparent throughout life. There is a serious nature about Capricorn and a great determination to succeed. This personality trait will be become apparent as the child learns to walk and take care of its own basic needs (dressing, potty training, etc.). Parents may find this impressive focus "adorable," but it is important not to minimize the seriousness Capricorn children bring to these tasks. They tend to set ambitious goals and meet them when they are encouraged to be true to themselves.
Capricorns may have pronounced foreheads and remarkable eyes. As children, they do not readily participate in frivolous games and activities, preferring to learn and apply their knowledge to acquire greater skill. Games like chess may be preferred. Capricorn children will treasure the parent who teaches them practical skills. There is also a great respect for manner and tradition in this personality. Your child may show an interest in older cultures such as Japan, China, and even Europe. Exposure to these cultures through fairytales, children's books, and videos will be a delight for your young Capricorn.
Capricorn children may feel extremely empathic when forming relationships with peers although they may not always have the words to express the deep emotions they experience. Your support in connecting emotions with language will be vital to their development. Foundation and structure is essential to this sign. Young Capricorns will be conscious of their foundation from a young age. The best way to show your respect for your Capricorn child is through regularity and dependability.

Yep! That's two blue lines you see up there!
I just found out today that I'm pregnant. I went to bed last night feeling very dizzy. After Saturday's crappy race (I was tired, I was hungry and wanted to throw up, just generally not my race self), I just figured that I hadn't recovered, or just was a result of not eating right.
Last night, sleeping was a mess. I woke up dizzy, like the room was spinning, several times, and had just a rough night of it in general. I got up when Matt did this morning because I had two doctor's appointments to tend to today. Matt saw that I was feeling less than stellar this morning. I told him I was still feeling dizzy for some reason. He joked and said he hoped I wasn't pregnant.
After he left, I looked into my everything pregnancy book, and started going over some symptoms. I had taken a test three days ago, and it was negative, so it didn't urge me right away to go pee on the stick. No where in there did it say dizziness.
I figured, why not. It would explain a lot. So I grabbed a cup, peed, and tested.
All of the sudden, there was a line that had never once appeared before.
I called my best friend and left her and urgent voicemail to call me, then called my doctor's office to cram in a last minute lunch appointment so they could verify everything.
After squealing on the phone with Jess, I left the house to run all of my errands. First stop optometrist. More squealing, no dialating of the eyes this go around (bad for baby).
Second stop, Publix to grab a sandwich, some cold water, and some fruit to recharge before I fainted. I grabbed orange juice too, but quickly learned that I have an aversion to it. Over to OB/GYN.
I sat and waited, sat and waited, sat and waited. My docter, half an hour later, flew out the door for an emergency delivery at Memorial Hospital. Leaving me with the choice of rescheduling (ummm, no.), or waiting for a PA and tech to see me (fine. I had never met my doc anyway and always dealt with the PA's, so no biggie).
Wait wait wait. Pee in another cup, they confirm it's indeed positive. But if my date of my last period is correct, 3/11, then it's going to be way too early to see anything on the ultrasound. Still though, confirmed!!!
They drew some blood to have it ran, then took an ultrasound, where nope, no peanut yet. Still way to early to see. She said it's a rare chance, but there is still a chance, that it might be a chemical pregnancy, where my body has fooled itself into thinking it's pregnant and thus exhibits all symptoms, sans baby. So I'm going again in two days, more blood, and again in 10 days, another ultrasound.
But still!!!!! OMG!!! I'm so excited. Matt has no idea. Only you and Jessica know. So shhhhhhhh, no squealing. But you know my email address :-) Finally. The time has come, and now, my other friend won't be pregnant alone. Hooray! It totally worked out for the best. I probably won't even tell our families until I get the first ultrasounds back (of which, I'll obnoxiously post). This blog can finally be what it was always meant to be in the first place.... life and plans.
Now I'm off to clean the house before Matt turns up, and to get my stuff ready to go back to work tomorrow.
