Well, shut my mouth wide open!

I'm pregnant.

Update to follow a little later today.


Ok, here's the story: I found out last weekend, and then for sure this past week. It's very, very early; my period wasn't even due until today. Had I not tested, I never would have known; I feel very PMS-y, but otherwise pretty good. I am excited and thrilled beyond words and also terrified that something will go wrong. My doctors aren't messing around--I've got daily injections and a few other medications. I've decided to post weekly updates each Friday (although the day of the week may vary a little, according to my hormonal and other whims). Otherwise, I plan to keep the majority of my posts about other things in my life, because this blog has become a very important part of myself, and I want to make sure I keep a good balance of it as such.

Thank you all so, so much for your support, thoughts, prayers, friendship, and laughs along the way. They mean so much to me; they really do.

P.S. Can anybody (well, anybody other than Mom, Dad, Ty, and Mr. Lashes) identify the reference made in the title of this post? Hint: It's a statement made by a specific character in a specific film.

Wooooooooooooooo hooooooooooo! I can't even tell you how happy I am for you! And I wish for you non-membership in the Sisterhood of Pukedom!

(Oh, and balance schmalance...when all those thoughts about your pregnancy want to come flooding out, let them! Write about any darn thing you like, but don't worry if it becomes preggo-centric. And I say this because I worry I've become just that! ;))

P.S. I had a history professor who always used the expression, "Well shut my mouth!" during his lectures.

I always thought it was a Southern thing--kinda like telling someone to shut their pie-holes, a favorite expression of mine.
