goooooooooooaaaaaaaaal

So, when we found out we were pregnant with Nate we waited and waited (and waited) to tell everyone. Very few people knew until we were officially out of the first trimester. We covered up, made excuses, consumed fake drinks at parties, lied, hid out... etc. We didn't even tell some people until 20 weeks. (In retrospect how in the world was I not showing at that point!?)

This time (YES, THIS TIME), I am taking a deep deep breath, closing my eyes and hitting publish on this post.

So, as of today, Tuesday, May 18, I am officially announcing our pregnancy.

For my geeky friends, an html reference:
It's way too early to tell anyone and I hope you will think sticky baby thoughts for us and I hope that, in the unfortunate event of something happening, you would be there to support us for that as well. (And I hope that I would be as comfortable sharing that information as this information.)

On the night of my birthday, five or six of us were sitting around (quite drunkenly) discussing our goals for the end of the year. Among them were get a job, be more social in a professional capacity, and (mine) get pregnant before the end of the year.

Fast forward two weeks later... BAM. Pee stick. Two lines. DONE. GOAL. I believe I might be the first of that drunken conversation to achieve my goal.

All I have to say is I WIN.

I'm one who announces before the pee stick is completely dry! I'm glad you did too; I won't have an accident cover blow now. 4 out of 5 of our dinner attendees next week will be packin' a baby (or 2). Omg! What if it's twins?! Don't say 'no way'. Lightening already struck our circle twice. It can a third! :) January baby, right?

Ang said...

Yes, I will NOT be making an announcement at our dinner party Monday night. I will be the only drunk one there....thanks ladies.

It's all good. I got this one.

Congrats Hill family!
