Knocked Up

I've been keeping a secret for the last six weeks and I FINALLY get to spill the beans! Which is such a relief, because I'm the worst secret keeper ever.

Well, here you go.

















I went for my first appointment this morning. Besides the never ending nausea, sore boobs and crying for no reason, I haven't really felt pregnant (I know, I'm a loon), so I was half expecting the midwife to tell me I was mistaken.

Midwife: Mrs Kay, it's just that you're, um, NOT pregnant. Not in the least.

Me: But what about the uncontrollable sobbing I did over Grey's Anatomy?

Midwife: Well, emotional issues aren't really my specialty, but I can give you the number of a really great psychologist.

Me: But my pants aren't fitting anymore!

Midwife: Yes, I noticed that. I can also recommend a really great weight loss specialist.

So to see my baby squirming on the ultrasound screen was not only reassuring, it really drove home that I am, in fact, pregnant with a REAL LIVE HUMAN BEING inside me.

Amazing.

As for stats, I'm 10 weeks along, due January 11th, and settling into some very intense cravings.

  23. Woohoo! Parabéns pra você! I can't wait to hear Gabi's thoughts on the matter!

    Babies are so awesome. I'm fighting the urge to get pregnant again - now. Pretty pathetic given that Gabriela's only 8 weeks old. Post often and maybe I can live vicariously through your pregnancy instead. ;)
