This won't come as a surprise to some of you, especially if you interact with me elsewhere. But, I thought I'd make it official by announcing here that one of my so-called "secrets" and the very thing I was celebrating on this day was this ---
I'm pregnant. With Baby #2. 21 weeks now. Due in April 2007. A day after my birthday is the EDD. Yikes.
Yes, that's one of the reasons I haven't been feeling well a lot lately. And, why I had to re-arrange some of my priorities and such.
It's also why I wasn't able to join my b5 business partners/colleagues in Toronto. A real shame, as I've been looking forward to finally meeting them. But, a 24-30 hour flight wasn't something I could take under the circumstances. In any case, you can check out Darren's and Mark's take on the events that unfolded.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to meeting them another time. For now, we remain in the virtual realms.
And, well, I'm still trying to get over my "all-day sickness." Ack. It's getting a bit better now, but I have a few things to sort out as well in-between. Especially since I had a very rough time with my first pregnancy (and a looooong recovery from birth/delivery). Needless to say, I am not one of those glowing pregnant women. 😛
But, I can't complain. I'm still happy as. Thanks to everyone who already sent their well wishes. 🙂
Oh, and BTW, yes, that's the scan of Baby #2 at 20 weeks. We tried to find out the gender. But, baby didn't cooperate. So, it's still going to be a surprise. Anyone care to guess if baby's a boy or a girl? 😉
