So far, other than Jay (who got to be here this time when I tested!), Sheri is the only one who knows I’m pregnant. Of course, I haven’t known myself very long, but by this time last time, I think I had told at least ten people. Plus a few random strangers and coffee baristas. This time is different. I’m holding onto this secret for a little while, I think. Not because I’m worried about something happening (and that is certainly a possibility, given my history), but because I’m rather enjoying carrying this little happy secret around right now.
I don’t think I’ll be able to keep it to myself too long… I like sharing happy news (even when the happy news must be punctuated with caution). I’m blogging about it here, but these posts are currently closed. I’ll share them sometime in the future, when I’m ready. I added a tag—Pregnancy 2009—which might make some people curious. I’m also keeping a blog of my pregnancy at Writer With Child so I’ll have all the posts in one place. No one is currently reading that blog, so I doubt anyone I know will accidentally come across it. Right now, I’m just keeping a record of my experience until I’m ready to share it with the world (or my corner of the world, anyway).
I have an appointment tomorrow to confirm my pregnancy. Which basically means I get to pee for another pregnancy test. But it’s the first step to getting my ob/gyn referral. I’ve been here before… and I’m hoping this time around results in a healthy baby.
According to my calculations, my due date is December 9. A holiday baby, to be sure. That’s something to celebrate, right? It’s too early for real symptoms (I think?), but I have tender breasts again this time and a little bit of queasiness every day for the past three days. Every pregnancy is different, they say. So, we’ll see.
For now, I have a secret that makes me smile.
