Babies, Radio Silence, and Babyfit

Monday, August 20, 2012

Dear Sparkfriends;

I'm sorry for the silence over the last few months. I started getting very sick in May and couldnt figure out why, so I was resting and avoiding moving and sort of laying low for the month of May. By the end of the month, I was still feeling crummy and couldn't kick a sense of fatigue, moodiness, dizziness and lightheadedness. I thought it was related to a bad cough I contracted, and starting meeting with my doctor, concerned about Valley Fever or Mono as possible reasons I was so physically weak.

On May 20th, I found out I DID NOT have Valley Fever, or Mono, or anything like that. Turns out
I'M PREGNANT!!!

I'm due January 21st, 2013. We didn't tell anyone until I hit 12 weeks because, it being my first pregnancy, I didn't have any idea how my body would respond and whether or not I'd be able to keep the baby (as many first time pregnancies end in miscarriage). We told our families in June, and our church and our friends in July.

Now we are rounding the end of August, and I have 22 weeks to go. I'm ready to be done, but that takes a while!!!

Long story short, I'm moving over to Babyfit.com, a Sparksite specifically for pregnant moms/ladies trying to conceive/new moms. My Babyfit profile name is MariposaMomma.

I'm looking forward to catching up with you guys in February of next year to start getting back on my regular track.

Thankfully, I was still in my desired weight range when I found out I was pregnant, so I am having the healthy pregnancy I wanted to have!!! Its really nice to be able to be pregnant without the additional concerns of being overweight, which complicates things for a lot of people.

So please pray for me and my new little family.

Thanks for everything, and talk to you soon.
