I know it has been FOREVER since I posted a blog and it’s kind of weird to say “sorry” so I won’t say that. I guess I will just say that I’ve missed it! But I have been a little busy.
You may remember my New Years’ post with my resolutions. Well one of them (among some others) has been met. Look at #3 specifically! Then come back.
OK, yes it’s true! I’M PREGNANT! I wish that my last name was still Rizzo so I could say “Rizzo’s got a bun in the oven” (from Grease) but I had to go and get married and change my incredibly cool last name to something as common as Collins. Anyway, I digress.
I never thought the day would come. Not that I was waiting for the day…it’s just that being pregnant is so surreal to me. I was never the girl growing up that always wanted to be a Mother. Of course I had dolls and would play “house” but I was just never that girl whose goal in life was to have kids & be a Mom. If that is you, please don’t take offense! It’s just not me. I knew I would have kids someday and now it’s here. It’s still crazy to think about. Just a warning: a lot of my posts these days will probably have to do a lot with being pregnant/being a Mom, etc so be prepared! I have a lot to say!
Ok, so details. I am 9 weeks pregnant tomorrow (Thurs). My due date is Nov 20. I am going to find out the sex of the baby. I’ve had 3 ultrasounds, I have 3 pictures and I’ve heard the heartbeat twice! I have been sick for 3 weeks. Not throwing up, just severely nauseous, which is almost worse, I think. I’ve lost 10 pounds which isn’t great but it’s normal and also nice to start off small because I know I will be gaining more!
I’ll post more later, but welcome me back to the blogworld…I have returned!! 🙂
