And now for 4 weeks of silence...

I'm pregnant. And I'm fucking stoked.



(In other news, Blogger is dumb and keeps flipping this horizontal picture vertically...but you get the gist.)

So besides being achingly tired, I am so so so excited about being pregnant. I am really REALLY going to try to enjoy every minute of the pregnancy because I feel like my time carrying Finn was such a blur of nerves and anxiousness. There are 6 people who knew that we were trying to get pregnant and I'm planning on telling them that the deed is done. Besides that, Mike wants to wait until after our first doctor appointment on March 16. I'll be nearly 9 weeks then. I never really understood the deal about waiting to tell people until you were in your 13th week - I mean, I GET it....but if I were to lose the baby, am I really not going to tell my close friends or family about it? Maybe there are people have miscarriages, shrug their shoulders and keep quiet, but I am NOT one of them.

Next week I'm on a business trip in Las Vegas with a good portion of the team that I work with. This will be our 4th year there for this particular conference and the past 3 years we've gotten pretty consistently rowdy. It will be fairly interesting to figure out how I'm going to pull off the whole "I'm partying without alcohol" thing without bringing attention to myself. My plan is to have a drink (non alcoholic, natch) in my hand at all times and act slightly obnoxious. No one wants to give more alcohol to the obnoxious girl.

If BabyCenter.com has their dates right, my due date will be at the end of October, my little boo baby. I find this to be pretty perfect to have my leave over the holidays when things generally get a bit slower for me at work. This will also mean I'll be able to take all the trips I was scheduled for on our 2009 travel docket, which will cause far less waves for my boss. I guess things happen when they are supposed to, eh?*

*This is much easier to say now that I am actually pregnant, but I hate when people say this when I'm waiting for something that I want right now. But now that I'm all zen and pregnant and shit, I'm totally allowed to say this.

Ha! Your note about being all zen and pregnant and stuff made me laugh. You're so excited to be having a baby, I bet you'd be able to find something good about being pregnant no matter what time of year your due date was!
