The truth is I’ve been avoiding you.
I’ve been harboring a delicious secret, and the only way I knew to keep it quiet was to keep away. But now, my friends, I’m ready to share some news:
I’m 12 weeks pregnant!
I had a sneaking suspicion I was long before I took the test, but Rama and I confirmed it with two pregnancy tests the morning of his birthday. We shared the news with my family on Christmas Day. And it has been s l o w l y sinking in ever since.
I am over the moon with joy. And a little nervous. And a bit exhausted. Mostly, though, I’m so very excited to meet the little being growing inside me.
There is so much that I could say about it all, that in time I’m sure I will, but for now, I just had to spill the beans.
