I have been dying to tell everyone for weeks, but we wanted to wait a little while, too. I was afraid that Lewis was going to spill the beans, but he showed remarkable self-control for such an enthusiastic dog. I’ll post more soon–details about how I found out, how I told Nathan, symptoms, first ultrasound picture. But for now, I am just so happy announce to the world that I am pregnant! According to the doctor, I’m 7 weeks, 3 days along.
I know that it’s early, but I’m not superstitious. I figure that if I have a miscarriage (at this stage, the chances of a young, healthy woman like me are about 15% or so I’m told), I want your support and love. Strangely, though, I’m not worried. Bug is here and strong and growing fast. In fact, I’m not really worried about anything. Pregnancy suits me very well, and seems to have eradicated my anxiety! I’m enjoying that while it lasts, trust me.
And, finally, I apologize for the fact that Lewis does not sit like a normal dog. We have never understood why he sits with his legs splayed like that and hope that none of you are offended by his lack of modesty.
