OK – I don’t even know where to start. I said awhile ago that I have intentions on sharing my pregnancy story in further detail and I definitely want to but I think I will be more comfortable writing out the gory details post baby.

One thing I do want to talk about today is control.

If you are the type of person who absolutely needs to control everything, a pregnancy will challenge and rock your world.

I got a phone call yesterday that raised me up so high and placed me on cloud 9 and then went to an appointment today that ended up placing my booty firmly on the ground. Basically, I thought I was going to be able to return to work but unfortunately, I was told no.

The great news is… I am carrying a baby boy who weighs over 4lbs!!!

I am so grateful to have a supportive husband, family and group of friends. I don’t know how I would get through the roller coaster of emotions without them.

The other person who is helping me get through this? My main girl, Ella Bear.

This week, via my Facebook newsfeed and Twitter timelines, I felt like there were a lot of people going through tragedies related to their pets. My heart goes out to them. My attachment to my dog has grown exponentially since being home with her. I know I am hormonal and I am teary eyed even typing this but I am so grateful to have her through this time. Hug your pups, kitties, squirrels(?), etc. when you get home. They are the essence of unconditional love.
