A Big Announcement

I've made it to 12 weeks, so it's time to officially announce! I'm pregnant! The baby is due January 25th.

A few people already know, and I have a really hard time NOT randomly telling strangers, so I'll answer some of the questions I already know will be coming up:

Q: Do you know what you're having?
A: No. It's too soon to know.

Q: How are you feeling? Have you had any morning sickness?
A: Oh yeah! And exhausted, and cranky. But I'm looking very forward to the second trimester.

Q: How far along are you? You're showing!
A: Actually no. I'm not showing yet. That's just early pregnancy bloat - I've looked like that for about 8 weeks now. But maternity clothes are sooooo comfy that I let it LOOK like I'm showing.

Q: What are you hoping for?
A: I already have a girl, so I'm really hoping this baby is a boy. But if we have a girl, we'll be just as happy. We really just want a healthy baby.

That's all the questions I can think of for now. I know there are other ones. Luckily no one has tried to rub my belly yet. I'll probably slap the first person to do that. My closest friends and family will be allowed to, but strangers and general acquaintances had better watch out! There's a t-shirt I really want that says "Touch the belly, pull back a stump!" I'm not a big fan of strangers touching me!

Lol about the belly touching! I felt the same way when I was pregnant, luckily nobody ever tried it. :-)

Ha ha. I totally agree with the belly touching, I don't even like my husband to do the belly touching.

Ahhhh!!!! You will be great and I'm so glad we have each other to talk to through the next few months! :)
