I was going to be all coy, but fuckit...
I have said in the past that I am against these broad, early announcements. But then again, fuckit. I have already shared the worst here, it doesn't make sense to keep back the the good.
I am 10 weeks and 5 days (the ultrasound was yesterday) and feeling good. We saw the heartbeat. We cried. We laughed at our selves for crying. I made my cervix jump around by laughing.
For those of you not familiar with the nuances the ultrasound or just see a blob, the head is down towards the bottom. If you squint, you can pretend you can see a little face. And there are some wee fingers there too. All the other bits are there, but they are more vague -just take my word for it.
Timmy is over the moon and has told everyone. They even had a banner for him when he got back to work after the appointment yesterday. (A big eye-roll directed at elementary school teachers. Even if it is pretty sweet) And of course, 45+ Italians in St. Louis have been informed.
I however have not told work, so keep it quiet. Not that I have any reason not to tell, I am just kinda private at work. I will probably tell my boss at the end of the month and then I will have to figure out a way to tell the rest of the staff. There probably will be no banners involved.
Oh, I am due in late September.
So that is it. Keep you fingers crossed for the most uneventful, boring pregnancy ever. That results in a healthy, super-awesome baby, of course. (Timmy is hoping for laser eyes!)
