Coming out

Thanks for the advice on the doula situation. I'm still working on it, but this task has been extremely frustrating and I have been working on it for several months now, so it's getting old too.

You all know I'm a bit of a freak when it comes to revealing my pregnancy to people. You'd think at 33 weeks I would be over it, but alas, I am not. I still haven't told most of my college and high school friends that I am pregnant yet.

Weird right? Well, I don't live around many any of them. And I'm a terrible communicator. And I just didn't like mentioning it to anyone.

Anyhow, I had DH take a belly shot of me in front of the tree the other day and put it up as my FB profile pic.

I know, not cool, BUT, as far as the friends that I care about goes, they all either already have kids or aren't married yet (remember I'm only 26). So, I'm not really worried about causing an infertile to break down somewhere from seeing it. And at least I didn't put up some cheesy status update like, "Being Pregnant is the BEST THING EVER!"

I really doubt that anyone will even notice. Or if they do, they might be wondering if I'm pregnant or just really proud of my fat.

But there are a few people that have noticed that I'm pregnant. We we walking out of church and someone yelled at me across the parking lot asking when the baby was due and saying they were wondering when I was going to show up with one. It was weird because (a) I didn't know her, (b) we were at a different mass than we normally go to, so I'm really surprised that anyone even realized that we were regular parishioners there.

But then we did the weekly grocery shopping and ran into a couple that we don't know but do normally sit by during mass and she said something to me about how they were all wondering if I had the baby since we didn't come to mass last night (we were at Christmas with DH's family).

So I wonder if they are taking bets.

I have created a general policy that if some random person asks me when I'm due, I say a shorter time period than it actually is because some lady asked me if I was sure it wasn't twins the other day when I said I still had 8 weeks left. I quickly turned around and mumbled "Rude Bitch" loudly as I walked away. I'd rather not have to do that again, so I just lie.

But these church people see me every week, so I can't lie. And they apparently all think that I'm due any day now.

Ok, whatever, he'll come when he comes and they can all stop their guessing then.

Anyhow, please enjoy some holiday kitty tor.ture!

LOVE the cats Christmas spirit! Haha! They look thrilled. The dog has a set of antlers. I've been meaning to post that finally.

Hi, I hope you don't mind me contacting you out of nowhere, but I saw a comment of your's on someone's post and you mentioned that you've taken baby aspirin and high folic acid for MTHFR.

I'm also on baby aspirin and Folgard for the same (currently 17 wks), and I just realized that I never asked my Dr. how long I should take it for. Did you stop at a certain point or are you taking it right through?

Thanks so much if you have time to shoot me an answer!
