My Big Announcement

What She Wore: Mid-calf, tweed skirt in ecru with black and turquoise accents; turquoise, long-sleeve tee, black high heels. 
First, I’d like to say that I debated putting that last post up while I was still being featured because I was worried that I was going to come off like an evil witch.  I’m really glad I did though because so many young teachers sent e-mails sharing similar experiences.  It’s always great to know you’re not alone. 
And now for my big announcement:
I’m starving all the time
I cry for no reason
My clothes don’t fit
My boobs feel like they weigh about a thousand pounds
And I have the strangest cravings for guacamole
You guessed it!!!
I’m Pregnant!!!! 
Yesterday my doctor confirmed that I am eleven weeks pregnant.  For those of you that are number savvy, you may notice that I was crying about not being pregnant when I was, in fact, pregnant.  I just didn’t know it.  Now that I’m getting over the shock, I’m starting to feel excited.  Yay!

In one summer I had a baby who was hospitalized for five weeks, quit my job, and moved back to my hometown. This blog is about starting over.

    Congratulations!  I hope everything is going well so far and that you don\’t get too ill…I have two friends back in Michigan who are pregnant, one due with a girl in April and one due with TWINS in June!  Both of them had horrible sickness at first and that is what tipped them off.  The one having twins is still quite sick but getting better.  When do you get to hear the heartbeat and get ultrasounds?  Babies are so super exciting!

  6. Unknown says:

    Congratulations! I bet you are so excited. I am so happy for you. I also wanted to say that I enjoy reading your blogs, especially about what you wear each day. I use to keep a journal about what I wore everyday.

    Congratulations!!!!!!!!!  Pregnancy is such a wonderful amazing experience.  Take care, oh and don\’t forget, it\’s a rule that if the mother-to-be is craving something, no matter what time of day or night, or in what kind of the weather the husband MUST venture out and bring home the goodies!!!!!

Sick…I thought my daughter would be lactose intolerant. How was the hubby and how did he respond/react? From here on out just make sure you have some smelling salts available for him, just in case (wink, wink). BTW I loved your last post. Well done.

    Great news!!!  You are going to be entering another "zone" !!!  I have one teacher in my office who is expecting for the first time, she is such a riot, and it has been fun seeing her go thru the process!  Moms are very special people.  Enjoy this beautiful milestone!!!

  36. Theresa says:

    Congratulations my dear!!  That is fantastic news!!  I remember the same experience when I was pregnant with my first child.  My  husband and I tried for 5 years to get pregnant!  It was a very frustrating and depressing time for both of us.  I really thought I had the flu and my sense of smell was heightened to the point that I couldn\’t go anywhere!  Everything smelled bad to me!  Then there were the cravings for hot dogs with cole slaw!  WHAT?? ;-D  I STILL didn\’t know I was pregnant!  I remember crying tears of joy when I found out.  My daughter is 24 yrs old now but the memories of that moment will always be with me. 
    Have a great rest of the week!  Great blog by the way 😉  New Orleans is my all time FAVORITE city!

  37. Tracy says:
