Amy guessed it...even though she made 4 or 5 guesses, she did guess that I am pregnant and that is indeed the case.
I had a couple people inquire as to why I had not shared this info earlier and all I can say is it's not my style. I'm not one of "those gals" who upon discovering this news, finds herself only able to talk about babies, being pregnant, babies, being pregnant...you get my drift. There are many people at SB who don't even know...oh and I'm 5 months pregnant right now by the way.
After much introspection, I've found that I was the same way with the wedding...very low key - I think Mary will agree - I did not find it necessary to talk about getting married all the time -it's just not me. Being pregnant is NOT my identity and I therefore do not find it necessary to consume every conversation that I have. I think it all has to do with my prior strong beliefs of living eternally single and being quite the independent soul that I am. :-)
While I have officially transitioned to maternity clothes, I'm not showing too much - still able to hide it under a shirt and apron at SB and while my main objective in life is not to hide it...there is a PG girl working at SB right now who has worn on everyone's nerves talking 24/7 about her pregnancy and she is the last person I want to be associated with at this point.
OK - so anyway...this is a honeymoon baby for sure...happened a bit quicker than I ever anticipated, but here we are.
I found out in my 11th week that it is a boy. I had a NOT-SO-FUN test called a CVS which tests for many things, as well as providing the sex of the baby. His name will be Ethan Alexander and he is due to arrive on February 5, 2008...although we all know how that could change.
I had my 20 week ultrasound today and all is well, 2 feet, 2 hands, 4 chambers in his heart etc. He was doing advanced acrobatics during the ultrasound and so far I have yet to feel anything. After seeing his antics today though, I think I'm gonna be in for it when I do start feeling it...ouch! Oh yeah..and I gained 10 lbs in the past 4 weeks - damnit!!
Now you know...
