I've been waiting for the right time to share this with everyone. A few months ago Mr. C and I discovered we are going to have a baby! Phew, what a whirlwind of emotions these past 4 months have been. If you noticed me turning down a perfectly delicious glass of wine, or eating just about every two hours, or saw me go to the bathroom like a million times in a day...or realized that I didn't drink at all at my Bachelorette party or wedding, then this should explain everything.
So many life changes at once, and I'm feeling incredibly blessed and shocked and thankful and lucky. I'm what doctors call "advanced maternal age" and was pretty freaked out for years that I couldn't have kids anymore. I went through a rough spot about 2 years ago (just before meeting Mr. C) where I realized that my life was out of my control, and wondered about the choices I've made and if I'd only done things differently my life would be where I wanted it to be. Then, I went to Cascabel for some reflection and fasting. I came back realizing I don't have control and I needed to let go of what I thought my life was supposed to be like. From that moment on, when I truly let go, my life has taken twists and turns that are better than anything I have ever imagined. I mean, I just got married and I'm having a baby (not exactly in that order). How crazy and exciting is that?
And, if our calculations are correct, then this baby will be out by early October.
