Well, partially, at least. We had an anointing service for Aunt Margie last night at their house, and I’m not sure how many of our family friends came up to me to say “Congratulations!” I guess it didn’t occur to me that Aunt Margie is a horrible secret-keeper. And I think Uncle Gene just didn’t get the memo about keeping things on the DL, because he was flat-out telling folks who were there that “Brooke’s expecting!” I guess it helped to have some good news considering we’re now in the waiting game to see if Aunt Margie’s tumor is cancerous.
I really kind of wasn’t ready for that. So I tended to have a more shocked reaction at people, rather than an excited, gracious one. I’m still planning on holding off telling my own social circle until I’m a good bit further along. Seems safer that way. We’ll see if I can fool everyone at the bachelorette party this weekend! It’ll probably be impossible not to have everyone in my family know when I go on beach vacation with them in a couple of weeks. But that’s fine, I suppose.
I made our first appointment with our midwife today. We’re heading to Conway next Wednesday afternoon. It’s going to be little tricky going there in the middle of the week on a regular basis, but I believe it will be worth it. And I’ll be telling my therapist about it at my appointment tonight–that will be fun!
Still no real sickness stuff to deal with. I tend to get a little nautious if I don’t eat often enough, but that’s nothing I can’t deal with. Easy so far! I hope I don’t jinx myself… I still hardly even believe I’m pregnant. Doesn’t feel like it. Not having a period is pretty sweet, though!
