Jumping on the "Not Processing" and "How on Earth do I go from 1 to 2 kids?!!" bandwagons. Once I see little squish, I'll be better.
I've already told a few people because I am no good at keeping big things secret. My DH got all his Christmas presents by Dec. 23rd. I've told the parents and my supervisor (mostly because I was so sick and dizzy last pregnancy and she needs to know if I'm unexpectedly missing a lot of work again). Going to tell my brother tonight since I'll be swinging by his place and hopefully our close friends and BIL this weekend. How has everyone else done with telling people?

Children are like casseroles; it takes a lot to mess them up.
tessiesmom2I had a slight panic moment yesterday and took yet another test. I read that you can't have Caesar dressing on the bump app and I have had it twice. My mom talked me off the ledge last night, but I knew I wouldn't feel better until I knew for sure with another test.
Is it too early to talk about the holidays? I just realized last night that there will be no way I can do Thanksgiving and Christmas like I usually do. Even 9 months pregnant, I still threw an awesome Christmas feast, but no way I'm doing it with a newborn. My biggest concern, though, is flu. Should we not see anyone over the holidays who don't have the flu shot? That would basically mean just MIL and FIL and probably my teacher BFF would be able to hang out because I know my family and DH's friends who do the holidays with us do not do the flu shot. DS became so very ill by 2 weeks from seeing DH's friends and their DD3 who is DS's age constantly has a runny nose and goopy eyes; DS always gets runny noses after seeing them. I'm grateful my New Year's resolution was to not plan anything this year and I'm sticking to it. At least everyone knows I'm not intending to play hostess and planner this year.
