Lots to talk about...
Okay... Deep breath...
Here we go.
I'm scared, and excited, and hopeful, and worried, because a lot has happened in the past few weeks.
I- we- My affectionate, loving fiance and I- just recently found out that we're going to have a baby... and everything immediately began moving quickly. News travels fast in my family- and whoever I haven't told will be sure to hear about it soon enough. Everyone's been really supportive so far.
LarLar is worried, because she was put in a similar situation back in High School- she has a lot to say about it. But Brookie and Bethie will have a playmate when they get all grown up.
I went to the OBGYN for the first time last week- turns out I'm much- MUCH farther along than I thought I was... I'm pretty much on the cusp of beginning the second trimester. I have baby pictures, so I can see where the arm is, and the leg is, and everything.
That's not the only thing going on, though. Soon after my visit to the OB, I go in to work, only to find the office completely abuzz. They've been taking groups of five or six to an office meeting in which they get a letter that's pretty much an extended pink slip. That's right, folks... I'm fired- or I will be in seven weeks. The office closes on May 5th, and I might as well start scrambling to get a job.
I'll have to get Cobra to extend my medical insurance while I'm out of work- and I'll have to get a deferral for my college loans for a little bit. But I- We- can do it.
There's little to do in lots of time.
... strike that.
