Wimp!

I felt like such a wimp today! For the past two years I have taken a fitness class at work twice a week during lunch. It is a strengthening / toning class so we don’t get too sweaty (although we do have showers, just in case). Since the 4 – 6 week mark my work schedule was just too hectic to make it to class, and then from 7 weeks until now I was either puking, on the verge of puking, or in a meeting during class time … until today. Holy crap did that class kick my butt!

The best part was telling my instructor that I am pregnant. I am 12 weeks now, so I felt comfortable with her telling the class – only 8-10 people and since she has to give me specific instructions at times it made sense. Then I realized telling people is like crack to me!

Only a few people around work knew, but after today I can add a few more to the list. I just love their reactions (thankfully they have all been wonderful). Plus I love the feeling it gives me. Each time I say it, my eyes fill up with tears and I get so darn happy. :)

It is so fun to tell people, isn't it? I work with all women, nearly all of whom are moms. So it's really fun to see their reactions and hear their stories.

That's funny because I actually DO NOT enjoy telling people. I think I still prefer to think of it as my little secret.

Plus, so far every person I've told has gone all batshit crazy on me with excitement or stories and it's a bit overwhelming. By not telling them I get to have some more quiet time.

Yay for the joy of telling others. I'm really happy for you :)

I'm still struggling to tell people. I also went to my strength training class today at the gym at work, but have yet to tell the instructor. Instead, I just dog it at times and wait for her to call me on it, which she has yet to do.

Because everyone needs a distraction, consider yourself tagged

Making those announcements are scary, but also so rewarding. I'm so happy that you feel comfortable sharing your wonderful news. :)
