Since I've been back, I can't help but relive the fun moment by moment and just like a good movie, every time I think about it, I find something I didn't realize at the time.
Well turns out there was even more...More that no amount of thinking would've made me realize. It took me coming home and making a revelation to find out what I'm about to tell you.
Maybe, just maybe I had an excuse for being the slowest. Turns out......
She says to me..."Well good and bad news"
I say..."Bad News First"
She says...."You're math is not so good"
I say..."That's not entirely surprising. Good news?"
She says..."You're first trimester is essentially over"
I say (with my husband looking on with a jaw on the floor)..."So that makes me 12 weeks?
She says..."Almost..11 weeks 3 days"
Holy cow! That means that when I was running Hood to Coast I was 7 weeks pregnant. Oh geez!
So now that I've come to grips with it, I can start to think about what that means. SO...here's the good and the bad...with a due date of April 2,
- Bad - I'll still have 4 months of school left (ouch!)
- Good - I will have most of the summer off plus I should be able to keep most of my race schedule next year.
- Bad - My office gets moved down to the basement. (So long craft closet)
- Good - I might actually have something extra to fill out a bathing suit (since I will be breastfeeding).
So all in all, I'm thrilled that E's getting a little brother or sister. It's nice to think the first trimester is already in the books (whether I knew it or not) and now we just have to get through the next few months.
