I need to point out that we planned for, wanted, and are excited for this baby. Not wanting to share the news was in my mind I guess a way to avoid the guilt I felt when people did bring up my dissertation, because I am angry and frustrated that I haven't finished writing.
Today when I dropped off Mimi at Mother's Day Out/Preschool, I mentioned to the lady about the baby coming in December and she looked straight at me and was shocked I was pregnant. I was like Whoa lady, do you not see my giant belly? I'm 6 months along now! Then I thought, sh*t people just think I've packed on the pounds I guess. Maybe I should tell people instead of letting them wonder if it's too many snowcones or a baby.
I was talking to my dear friend Emily about not "sharing the news" and she said to not care about the comments of others, or what they think. She said not to let them steal my joy over this pregnancy. My husband and I (and Mimi) are excited about our Christmas baby coming soon. No my facebook world can be excited for us too I guess. One nasty dissertation comment and they're blocked though!
