Thank you to everyone who congratulated me! Tumblr actually seemed more excited than my family. Well some people were excited but others were not so excited..
I just went to Applebee’s ate at the bar by myself, didn’t order a drink because well I’m Pregnant, ordered two meals and ate both, talked to some random strangers about funerals, and now I’m laying on the couch. I can’t move because I over ate and I might vomit. WOOO what a wild thursday night!
traditional + modern anniversary gifts!
I’ve been doing traditional with a twist! I love it :-)
Well I had been doing traditional, but cotton??
For cotton, I ordered an embroidered blanket with our family tree on it. Dan is really into the “family tree” stuff. It was perfect! There are so many great cotton gifts out there :-)
So I might as well confess on here since everyone else pretty much knows but I’M PREGNANT! There i’ve said it. We are so excited but the strangest thing is a lot of people we don’t know knows that we are pregnant. I found out when transferring from my old command to my new command and as protocall goes your chain of command has to know within 2 weeks of you finding out so my whole department, his whole platoon, and pretty much everyone we’ve talked to down here but yet none of our friends or family really know. Not because I don’t want to tell them but There was a point where I thought I had a miscarrage so I’m scared to tell everyone I know and then something happen and then from the people that mean the most to feel obligated to tell me sorry or something so to be safe we are waiting for me to pass 12 weeks. It’s so hard not to tell people. I told some family over FaceTime yesterday and we’ve told most of our close friends now but it still feels weird strangers know and yet it’s a big secret. I just want to tell everyone and get it off my chest so the next best thing is Tumblr.
One thing that does make me a little mad is i’m required to attend pregnancy classes which is great the more you know! but anyways everyone there just assumes that this was a mistake and that we are too young to be having kids… I understand some people that attend it was a surprised but there are some of us that actually planned and stop giving me the dirty looks when I show up without my husband.
Anyways that’s enough of a rant for now. For anyone that’s my friend in real life be prepared in 2 weeks for my secret pintrest boards of baby stuff to become public and awesomely cute prego photos and ultrasound pictures.
