The girl who sits next to me at works claims that I better get the word out soon because my belly is getting obvious. I don't expect that my superiors will share my joy ... I guess that's why I'm not looking forward to sharing the news. I imagine the first thing that will go through their minds is, "great, she's going to have to be out for a while." Maybe I will be pleasantly surprised. I was planning to tell them at 12 weeks, which will be May 11.
Today I depart for Hawaii. I have to be honest, I am a bit afraid of this swine flu. I try not to buy into this fear mongering that is so prevalent in this country, but apparently when you're pregnant your immunity is very low. If it were just me I wouldn't feel the same way at all, but suddenly it's all about Patito and making sure he/she is always okay and comfy.
Looking forward to surprising Mandy with the news! Back on Tuesday!
