Hello...

The growing baby in my uterus would like to say, "Hello"

Nugget #2 will be arriving around May 1st

I would first like to apologize to any close friends of mine who had to find out I was pregnant through the blog. I really do have a good explanation for this. Well, maybe not a good one, but it is very rational to me.



I don't like to tell people I am pregnant. I feel it is always a weird introduction to a somewhat weird conversation that goes something like this:




Brit: "ummm... so guess what?"




Friend: "What?"




Brit: "I am pregnant."




Friend: "Oh congratulations! When are you due? How far along are you? Have you known for long?"




Brit: "Uh, May 1st. Almost 12 Weeks. Yes, I have known since the day I missed my period at 4 weeks."


Friend: "Were you trying? Was it planned?"


Brit: "Yes"



And that is about as exciting it gets.


My weird reasoning for not wanting to tell people I am pregnant is because while I think it is an amazing, wonderful, beautiful part of the creation process that Heavenly Father graciously instilled into our bodies... getting pregnant isn't hard for me.

.

I think about getting pregnant and then I am.

.

Now don't get me wrong, I am so excited when others get pregnant and I want to congratulate them and share in their joy... but when I get pregnant it is no big deal. I don't think about it constantly, I don't show for awhile (hopefully this stays true this pregnancy), and when everyone knows it makes the pregnancy last forever.

.

I actually didn't want to tell anyone I was pregnant until I was at least 12 weeks and heard a heartbeat... but once one person knows then everyone knows. And since my family has tried to keep it quiet... not very successfully I might add... I figure I might as well let it all out of the box.
