8 weeks!

As you know, I had an ultrasound on Monday. Things went beautifully and I graduated to an OB! I can hardly believe it! My next appointment is January 3rd when I’ll be checking out another OB.

I still feel great. No change in that area. Just hungry. And obviously sporting a bump.

To those of you who checked in on me, I’m sorry for the delay in updating. You have no idea how many posts I have in draft right now. This week has been absolutely nutso with wrapping up work, finishing shopping, preparing for travel, missing our flight, rebooking for a flight the next day, then spending time with loved ones.

We shared our news with our immediate families. Everyone is absolutely thrilled. Happy tears all around. I was even able to share my journey with my family. My mom’s heart was a little broken that I had to deal with all of that by myself but I wasn’t alone. I had my amazing husband and you, of course. But my mom was great, much to my surprise. She’s so excited!

We’re waiting to tell anyone else until later. My feelings on this will be saved for a future post.

To the anonymous commenter yesterday, just to be clear if I lose you as a reader I won’t be sad. I don’t write this blog for you. You don’t have the right to demand content from me. It’s not like you are paying for a subscription or anything. I write this blog primarily for me. To get things off my chest so I don’t have to burden my poor husband. Secondarily, I write this blog for the support I get from others. I’ve bonded with so many women online that I’ve never met before. I’ve even gone on to have email communications with some and meet some in person. I have new friendships because of this blog. You are not one of these people. (P.S. Your comment seems a little passive aggressive for someone who has a quote from Buddah on her blog.)

To my true friends and supporters, I wish you the happiest of holidays! Enjoy your time with loved ones. Eat lots! You are loved!

    I love how anonymous refers to herself as “funny, caring, loving and sentimental”. Her comment certainly wasn’t.
