The word is out and we can officially shout it from the rooftops. I’m pregnant! Mr. and Mrs. Dr. are going to be parents. We are so excited to finally share this news with my blogosphere family. It’s a funny thing. I have felt so guilty because I know I have been keeping this huge secret but it’s the best secret so at the same time, I haven’t felt that bad. It’s one of those secrets that people understand why you keep to yourself so for that I am thankful. I feel like I have so much to catch you all up on because – surprise! – I am already in my 2nd trimester. Pretty hard to believe. But Mr. Dr. and I wanted to be super duper sure all was well before we made our news public. I guess that’s what happens when you are first time parents. Parents…crazy to think that is what we will be after only having them all this time. Ugh. After only worrying about a fetus in my belly for 16 weeks I would like to give a shout out to any and all parents out there because my goodness do they deserve credit. I have already experienced that “worry” that parents have and I am exhausted, and Baby L hasn’t even made the debut yet into the world. This is going to be a long 18 years. Who am I kidding – my mom still worries about all of us so nevermind, it’s going to be a long rest of my lifetime, ha.
I’d like to partially blame the creation of Baby L on the reasoning behind why I have blogged a bit less this summer. I write honestly and openly so keeping such a big part of our life on the hush has been hard for my writing since all I have wanted to do is have a glass of wine…and a martini…and a beer to celebrate. Have you noticed that Cocktail Fridays have been less frequent? Even if you haven’t, I can assure you they have and it’s because I haven’t wanted to live the lie that I have been cocktailing to my norm this summer. All for a good cause of course. What will we do with the name of the blog? Shall I temporarily change it to When Life Gives You Medicine & a Baby…make Mocktails? or When Life Gives You Pregnancy…make a Preggatini?
One of my dearest friends sent me the cutest gift after I told her the news. Take a look. This will hopefully give me some good blog material to report on over the next 6 months. Momjito anyone?
I will follow up with some exciting posts about how we told our families and how the last 4 months have been in preggo land. Mr. Dr. and I couldn’t be happier to expand our family and I know that there are lots of doctor’s wives mommas out there to get the best advice from so feel free to start dishing that out…now. For now, I will leave you with a picture of the first maternity shirt I was given. I can’t wait to sport this sucker around NYC this fall. Courtesy of my sister-in-law.
