Okay, I did it...

I ANNOUNCED MY PREGNANCY ON FACEBOOK!

Too many people know... and because of the awkwardness of my current situation, I decided it's better that I announce it, and let people SEE that I'm happy. That way, it doesn't read as ashamed, or embarrassed, or whatever people might read into it.

So... I announced it by referencing Doctor Who. Because I'm not a nerd AT ALL. What do the Doctor and I have in common? Two heartbeats.

We'll see how this goes.


That doesn't mean I'm not FREAKING OUT about this. Last time I announced my pregnancy, I had to call everyone a week later. Keep me in your T&P this week? Ack. PAL is hard. I want to just be easy-breezy about this... but it's hard.

Good for you! I waited so long this time because i was too scared to have to retract and keeping the secret was so hard!

I waited until I was just about 11 weeks as well. I was terrified of loosing Marsi and even had bleeding after announcing that needed an emergency u/s. You are definitely in my thoughts and prayers! (like always)

So far, the outpouring of joy in the comments has been INCREDIBLE. I'm overwhelmed. A lot of people know how much I've wanted to be a mom... so it's nice to have some love.

Feels good to put another milestone behind me.

That is awesome that you are getting lots of support! PAL is really hard. Things that come easy to those that have not experienced loss are real hard for us. Simple things - like announcing on FB.

Exactly! So many people are so FLIPPANT about it! And that's why that "game" was ticking me off...

Honestly... this has been really scary. BUT, the people who have been so excited have been SO helpful! I love my friends.

That is so great you came out and had a great reaction. I told about 10-11 weeks. Continued prayers for a healthy pregnancy.
