I'm back! It's been too long and there are many reasons for my being gone, mostly blamed on an insane work schedule, but none of that matters now since, I'm back! I need to get back in the swing of things so I figured what better time to announce...
...and actually, quite far along. I'm 15 weeks to be exact. Shocking, isn't it?
Why did I wait so long? Well, there are people in my life -- work, friends, ect, who read this blog and I wasn't ready to tell the world so, it was our little secret for awhile there.
Were we trying? Well, I had my IUD taken out and one month later, shock of all shocks, I was pregnant. We couldn't believe it. After two years of trying for Lucy we get pregnant after one month of not-really-trying. When work was insane and my mother in law came to visit and I had to travel to California and it seemed absolutely impossible. I couldn't believe it. I actually waited until I was a week late to even test. Could it possibly be that easy?
Well...no. I was sick, and I mean SICK. Starting from week six I was absolutely miserably sick. Throwing up in my work trash can almost every day sick. 24 hour nausea sick. Migraines that lasted 3 days sick. I'm 15 weeks now and I'm still sick on and off. This is nothing like my pregnancy with Lucy, which automatically makes the husband think that its a boy (of course). But sickness I can deal with, the important thing is that baby is healthy and we find out on October 5th if he is a he or if he is a she!
Pictures to come soon of the bump! But for now, pictures of the light of my life, the soon-to-be best big sister EVER, my Lucy:
You'll forgive me for keeping this a secret for so long, right?
"She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child. "
