So I've decided to stop ignoring the questions, concerns, emails, phone calls, and the symptoms of my own body and let everyone in the world in on a poorly kept secret:
I am now 14 weeks pregnant! (For those of you who don't know weeks, I'm now in my second trimester! For those of you who don't speak girl- I'm four months pregnant.) Last time I was able to keep it a secret for quite a bit longer- I didn't really tell people until well AFTER we knew we were going to have a girl. That was after 22 weeks being pregnant (5 months). And I didn't start showing a recognizable baby bump until well into the 6th month. But I've just been so sick with this one, and I have so many concerned friends who kept asking what disease I've caught that helped me to lose those pesky 10 vanity lbs I always wanted to get rid of. I probably could have won anybody's biggest loser challenge!
I'm starting to perk up a bit, and I've gained some of my weight back, which is, so I'm told, great news. I still have to take the nausea medicine for chemo treatments all day long and try to eat small meals all day long which has never really been a problem for me, it's just now B wants to eat all my food. She's worse than the dog! Other than that, nothing really new is happening. It's still pretty much the boring "trying not to throw up on myself" time of the pregnancy. I'll keep you all updated with pictures and Dr.'s appointment news.
Thank you for all your concerns and love, and all the dinners and visits! I could really go for one of Jenny's Spinach Smoothies...
