Thanks everyone! Last night was pretty exciting! My husband is thrilled to say the least. We’ve been together for 10 years and when we married 5 years ago we said we were not going to have children, but travel and have fun instead. But, as we built our home together the more we wanted children after all.
I’m in good health and I quit smoking 6+ months ago. Only 32 (33 in May) so not sure if that will present any other health issues but I’ll start scheduling my first appointments next week! I think I’m about 4 weeks, maybe 5 and baby will come end of October or early November. It will either be a Libra or a Scorpio! If it’s a boy I hope it’s a Libra and if a girl, a Scorpio! I have my reasons I won’t get into now, lol!
My current job has great healthcare for a first time mother. So, as much as it pains me... I think I’m staying put. I can get a good amount of time off with my current job. Way more than I could with a new job. Not sure how I’ll pull off some of the physical stuff related to my job OR who they would bring in to replace me during my time off, but I’m going to with the attitude of “not my problem”. My priority is to have a healthy pregnancy and eventually a healthy baby. At least if my coworkers call me lazy I’ll have an excuse they might actually understand!!
I hate to miss this other opportunity, because it is so perfect for me, but having time off is more important for me at the moment. I’ve given 7 years to this place, now they are gonna pay to deliver my baby!! We work in year to year contracts so I’ll finish the contract after birth, use as much insurance as needed. Contract ends in July and then I’m out, new job or not!!
My dad and I haven’t spoken in person in YEARS. He did send me a Facebook message at Christmas to tell me he loved me which was actually really great to hear from him. My husband asked me if my dad knew I was pregnant, if I thought he would straighten out and come home. I said no I don’t think so. But, I do think he will be happy. I’m not planning to tell him but I know my mom will. She’s his #1 enabler and she still talks to him every week. But, we’re not planning to tell any parents until one more month at least, just to get past that beginning time when miscarriages are most likely.
Thanks for letting me share here everyone! I know we’ve never met in person but I consider you guys some of my longest known friends! And yes, FF, you’re Auntie for sure! <3
