Ok, I can't keep it in anymore, guys. I know its early (really early) but if anything bad happened I'd tell you all anyways and I'm anxious as hell and need you guys as my sounding board (especially given our trip coming up to India...dengue fever outbreak in Dehli is stressing me out).
I have some amazingly happy news... H and I are almost 2 months pregnant (well, I am...he's just along for the hormonal hell-ride that is me right now). Doctor appointment is next week and we are hopeful we can see the little nugget's heartbeat. I've peed on so many sticks I would rival Carrie from Homeland. I have a drawer in my bathroom just like this guys...
Though I gleefully add to the pile instead of reluctantly like Carrie.
The day I found out I wasn't sure I honestly saw a second line so I bought a bunch of tests, waited until the afternoon and saw a faint but second line. H got to come home to this little attached scene (pic below at the end of this loooong AW) with a note that we'd be cooking for one more. He isn't overly emotional but I don't think I've ever seen him so happy/confused/excited rolled up into one.
So far, I've gained a little weight eating the same calories as pre-pregnancy so my body is doing something, my boobs feel like growing rocks and cheese (yes the all sacred cheese of my life) is making me nauseous even though I'm not throwing up and didn't really expect to since I haven't puked since age 6. I can't and wouldn't complain though. After all..
I've never been happier, more emotional, excited, scared and all over the place. Just wanted to share the good news. Now H knows, you guys know, my mom/sister, H's mom/brother and my best friend. I'll wait to tell our other friends/family until we pass the first trimester (hopefully) safely.
As to our April Chicago GTG, if all goes well, I'll be huge at that point but unless the doctor orders otherwise and so long as you all can navigate around my hopefully huge belly at that point I still plan to be there and I'll be easy to spot as this will be me...
Rajah has zero clue so either he's a dumby dumb or that thing about pets knowing you are pregnant isn't true by the way. He's just happy for all the extra love and cookies I'm giving him for now.
