The beans have been spilled...

After much thought, I came to the conclusion to that Mother's Day was a good day to "spill the beans" to family. Some people knew already (parents, sister, etc), but others I've been holding off on "just in case." I broke down and now both grandmas know, along with some other extended family. News travels fast I guess, as I got a call from an aunt this morning.

So...it's out! Exciting and scary all at the same time.

I hope to breath a sigh of relief on Thursday (assuming we get another u/s at OB appt), and then a bigger sigh of relief at NT scan on May 21.

I also made my first maternity purchase this weekend. Note that I didn't buy something for baby, just me. I can't go there yet. I got a few camisoles and maternity tank tops that are just a bit roomier than what I'm currently wearing. They seem to fit pretty well now, so who knows how long they'll last me.

Nauseau is still kicking my butt, along with INTENSE fatigue. All I want to do is sleep, although mornings seem to be my best time of day. By 2 pm, I'm starting to go downhill. By 7 pm? Forget it.

doubting you can nap at work, but if you could, one hour then would help.
the cami's get them at old navy, and get tees at target before they go out of season, they are awesome and stretch well.
and, I would say get something for both of you but I was the same way,,,,... you'll get there.
P.s. on a totally off note.. really odd, my word verification is "lightsc" is that odd or what

Must have been so exciting to tell! We're telling Glenn's family this Saturday and then I'm letting my mother go free and tell people beginning Sunday. I'm still worried, but, it's hard to keep it in!
