Luckily, I was smart enough to purchase this book about 8 years ago so I would never be fooled into being fooled by these women.
It also served as a gentle (and humorous) reminder of why I had made the decision to remain childless and would every now and then act as a wake up call for my "maybe baby?" blues.
Then somewhere down that road I determined that I might not be that type of woman anymore. While I most certainly was staunch in my position for a long time, and completely unapologetic about it, many factors had begun to break that mold that I had happily built for myself.
Meanwhile I began this journey of making gradual changes to the physical me. Drastically changing what I put into my body (and how much of it). Steadily changing the amount of time I spent moving my body. And slowly 30 pounds were shed over a matter of 3 months. Proud of my progress and determined to continue I set out on a "chest & back" workout one Sunday morning when something like this happened...
Yep, I found out that while I'd been focused on changing my life in one way, the universe had been focused on changing my life in a totally different way.
I've debated for some time now about sharing the news too soon and had even asked the few people that did know if they could kindly keep it to themselves for now. But as I am very familiar with human nature, and even more so familiar with my own nature, I thought it best to reveal it sooner than later AND on my own terms while taking all of the good vibes I could get to help us safely through this process.
So that's it folks. I can't say that I've ever been more paranoid about anything in my life. Ever. Not about what will come when it comes...I'm just extremely concerned about making sure that whatever IT is actually makes it into the world in one healthy piece.
And there are my guts, spilled out for you all to read. Adios!
