Wow... That's pretty much all I have to say about your guys' reaction to our news. Keeping everything a secret was definitely harder than I thought it would be. And I am so glad that we are past the first trimester and able to share with everyone.
Your words were especially nice since the last two days have been kind of a rough. I'm a hormone casserole. My anxiety is getting the best of me these days. Tomorrow is one year since I found out my biopsy results. Although last year, it was the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, so that would have been last night. I thought it would be like any other day, but we are currently waiting on some test results for Baby Janney. It's an optional first trimester screening test using my blood to put together the baby's DNA to check for some chromosomal abnormalities. It wasn't like the test was recommended. But because I am a high-risk pregnancy (more on that later), it was offered to us so we decided to do it for the peace of mind. I'm sure everything will be fine, but I just don't like having to wait for results the same way I did last year.
And to top it all off, there's been some stuff going on with Phil's dad and his health that is making life a little more complicated than I would like.
Top it all off with the fact that I have been really busy and really tired.
I wanted to follow up Monday's post with a post about the details. Not ALL the details. That would be a major over share. But, you know, some of the details. That post will have to wait.
Until then... I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving! If you are feeling like you don't have a ton to be thankful for, just wait... You never know what you'll be thankful for next year. :)
