I’m pregnant, and I want to scream it from the mountaintops.  However, when I first found out, I wanted to hide my little secret away from everyone besides my husband.

Of course, we were beyond excited to be having a baby, but I was also overwhelmed with questions, and fears. I was afraid to tell others, and then to have something sad happen to the baby.  I didn’t know how I would be able to handle telling others, and decided to keep our secret to just a few supportive and loving friends and family members. I was tired in the afternoons, and my poor husband lived with a sloth for a couple of months.

At my last doctors appointment, she recommended that I come out to the rest of our family, friends, and coworkers.  She laughed and told me that I would most certainly start showing soon, and that people would rather hear it from my lips, then think I ate a couple of large burritos one day (I do love burritos though…so that may still happen.)

So we had our closest friends and family on the phone or over for a party this weekend, and we shared our great news.  Today, I was able to share it with my coworkers, and our viewers on The Rhode Show.

I am due in the middle of the spring, and will be pregnant all winter long. I can not wait to make our baby it’s very own Christmas stocking, like how my mom did for me.  My books and smartphone applications say that it can already hear sounds, so I try to sing to it in the car.  We took a picture of my first “bump shot” last week, and I’m ready to see how my body will change to make room for this little person.

I’m delighted to be a mommy to be!
