I've Got a Secret....
Can you guess what it is???
Yes, folks...it is true! I am expecting our fifth child...a complete surprise (happy) to us...especially after so many years of trying to get pregnant and having it be so difficult. In November, I began craving General Tsos Chicken and knew I had to test! Yup...needless to say, we were in shock for a couple of weeks.
If you have wondered where I have been lately, this is why I have disappeared off the face of the earth. Sicker than a dog, I have been keeping myself alive with cereal and toast! It seems like this pregnancy has been rough, I think it is my body telling me that it is getting tired! Due to my long history of high risk and miscarriage, we have been keeping this new little one a secret for as long as possible.
My waistline has decided that it is now time to spill the beans! I need some elastic, instead of buttons, so that I can breathe again! I am now 13 weeks, 4 days and the baby looks very healthy...we are crossing our fingers and praying hard that all stays well until the middle of July - when I will have the c-section.
So - now you know! And, as G.I. Joe would say, "Knowing is half the battle!"
