Patience is a virtue

Too bad I don't have it.

My plan was to wait til the ultrasound to tell co-workers. But this morning we had a management team meeting and one of my co-workers brought me the fertility gods prized by her midwife friends. They've been passed around, and seem to really work, she says. I decided I would return them to her after my next appointment and then say they worked.

But after the meeting the other folks went on and on for about ten minutes, on where to put them, how to plan, where they were from....finally I just couldn't take it anymore and blurted out the truth.

Too bad the only man in the office, who also is a big old gossip, overheard the yelling and screaming.

Now I am just counting the days until May 27th...

My first ultrasound is scheduled for May 27th! Seems so far away to see anyone again, but I think it will fly by...I hope.

The practice I am using is a group of Certified Nurse Midwives and Ob/GYNS --one of the mds works here at PP, too...doing abortions and colposcopies and such a few days a month, and two of the CNMs are per diems here. I have liked the two CNMs I have met as a patient so far, and neither of them is one of the women I know.

They had me do a urine test, and then I signed a bunch of releases for blood tests...then it was off to the lab down the road to have the bllod drawn and to pee in a cup. Again. Good thing I have to go every 30 minutes anyway....

Bill will come to the next appointment.

It is very hard not to tell people...not sure how much further I will last. I'll need some reason to tell folks why I am losing my mind...I suddenly can't remember ANYTHING!

My baby's got a secret...

I decided to make a second pregnancy secret for now, so please don't link to it or share until I link to it from momomama!


Tomorrow am is my first appointment, just going for a confirmation test and to have blood taken. Christa brought me a pile of pregnancy and baby books, and I picked up a pregnancy journal yesterday. And a baby name book.

We decided last night that we don't need to know the gender.

Now we are trying to find interesting ways to tell Bill's mama!

And finally, I felt woozy this morning.
