Baby on Board!

It’s official! We recently shouted out into cyberspace about our pregnancy so now all y’all now know our little secret. I can’t tell you how hard it was to keep this secret for so long. You’re advised to wait to disclose your pregnancy until the “danger zone” is over, at around 3 months, but we kept it within close friends and family until, well until now.  I guess we just wanted some time to get used to the idea but I didn’t think we would need half my pregnancy to get there!

Now with my growing protruding belly it has definitely sunk in. And fast. Before our trip to Ireland over Christmas I wasn’t showing at all–but a week after returning I couldn’t fit into most of my jeans. Normally this would mean I drank and ate WAY too much while on holiday but not this time, especially since I didn’t drink my way through the countryside. Of course there’s no turning back, I can’t just work off the extra size — the belly is only going to get bigger, which I’m learning to embrace. Slowly but surely I’m learning.

I’ve kept a journal of my pregnancy since day one but finally decided to share it here. I’m tellin’ ya — I’ve got some funny takes on it. Like, is it gas or is it “fluttering?” Is swimming ok or will the chlorine turn my baby blue? Am I going to end up with itty bitty but sagging boobies like the tribal women in Africa? What do you mean I have to suck (literally SUCK) out my baby’s boogers?!

Oh yeah, I’m learning a lot along the way. As blindly as we’re going into this baby mama and daddy thing, we’re beyond thrilled for all the changes. Maybe that’s why I haven’t read one baby book yet (much to Mo’s chagrin). Maybe I’m scared of what I’ll learn. (I mean seriously, sucking boogers?) I quite like the happiness we’ve got going on from not knowing too much. Ignorance is bliss, isn’t that what they say? But don’t worry — of course both hubby and I are tiny control freaks so I know my ignorance won’t last too much longer. Until then, I’ll continue to ride the wave and fill all y’all in on how it’s going.
