yes YES YESSSSSSSSSS! I Can finally shout it from every corner, every building every social media platform. I can finally stop worrying about being in public and unknowingly grabbing my belly! I can finally stop needing to come up with lies and lies to support those lies when friends and family ask why I have not been around or why I have not been drinking. I can stop holding my breath when people bring up the word baby or pregnancy or a friend of a friend who just found out they are pregnant and say it’s me, I am, we are ME! I can finally and Oh my goodness; FINALLY tell people “this is why I have not been liking you lately, this is why my eyes go evil/ demonic/ sometimes crossed eyed with fury occasionally, this is why you might have seen me cry watching the Rugrats movie, at the mall, in a dressing room, at the office, in the car, in the bathroom, at the grocery store. The list goes on and on. This is why you may have seen me face first, passed out on my desk at work or napping in my car over my lunch hour. This is why I may have rolled my eyes occasionally when you opened your mouth This is why my face looks like a 7th grader going through puberty and this is why my calves and cheeks look like they are about to explode.
I’M TOTALLY PREGGO PEOPLE.
I just realized I was pounding like.. super aggressively on my key board but I gotta say that saying it out loud is a really damn good feeling. I think hitting the send button on our social media announcement was like hands down the best feeling ever only because we have been keeping this a secret for the last two months and man was it tough.
Finding out at four weeks was a blessing but a pain at the same time. The positives of finding out early of course were the health benefits, I quit drinking and taking my medications immediately before it would have started effecting our little blessing and began prenatal pills in time for any major growth spurts. The down side to knowing early is……….. I had to keep my mouth shut for 8 weeks. Sure I blabbed here and there to the people who I found to be most trust worthy and those who I felt deserved to know before the rest of the world. But there were others who I wanted to know too but had to wait if I wanted my secret to be kept. Thankfully that secret is no longer a secret and for those of you who would like to stay updated I thought it would be great to be able to share my pregnancy on the blog with you all.
Before I go I wanted to share with you our announcement photo. This weekend was a big one for us, not only did we announce baby Hendrickson but we also moved into our new house. Feeling so absolutely blessed right now.
Thank you all for the love and support.
