I’ve been fighting the inward battle of “to announce via social media or not”. In the end, it seems like the easiest way to get the word out there.
At first I had no interest in doing anything cutesy. Announcing sort of lost its charm last year, I guess. But then we heard that sweet heartbeat, and I went to the Promised Land and so my sister’s glorious belly, and my own belly keeps growing and growing and God started to replace some of the “whatev’s” with some real excitement.
I’m 13 weeks pregnant. We’ve seen the baby and heard its heartbeat. We have moved from pretending it wasn’t real as a defense mechanism to cautiously excited to thrilled – and only a tiny bit cautious.
Now you know why I’ve been missing for a month. I was lying on the couch trying to be as still as possible. I’m feeling better these days. I can’t decide whether I’ve just adjusted to a new normal or I’m actually feeling better. Regardless, I feel less like a slacker-loser who lazes it up watching a lot of TV…that’s something, I guess.
We are exceedingly grateful for all of your prayers and support! Yay for 2012!
P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day!
