Taking my daily dose of realization

So when does one realize that they are in fact going to be a parent? I always thought it was when the pregnancy test comes up positive, but I'm finding that our minds can't actually wrap our brains around the concept all at once. The three positive pregnancy tests were just the beginning. All of the physical symptoms, the 3ultra sounds I've watched, and the tiny movements I'm starting to feel are helping reality set in. In fact, I just made my first post-birth dentist appointment and the hygienist actually asked me "so what time do you think will work best for you and your baby?" Me and my what!? Oh yeah that.
I haven't been this excited since Kevin asked me to marry him! I've also never been more nervous in all of my life. There is a tiny person growing inside of me, and it's the most exhilarating feeling in the world!
