I can't believe how long it's been since I posted. Life has been pretty busy for me lately. A lot seems to be going on. My Dad had his surgery last Friday and came home Monday. He is in a lot more pain than he was with his other surgeries but he is doing well. Thankfully there is no hospital drama to report. It went as good as can be hoped.

The other thing is something I wasn't going to mention for a little longer but I've changed my mind. I think it's part of the reason I didn't post. It's a pretty big deal and I really couldn't think of anything else to talk about. I'm pregnant.

Everyone back on their chairs yet? I ask because the usual reaction seems to be the type of shock where people seem to fall off chairs. Or at least need to sit down if they are standing. For some reason people seem to recall I have been saying over and over I don't want kids. *shakes head*

At first I didn't think it was a good thing. I took a home test and well... reacted with shock, denial and terror. Mr. IT was really great though. He just held my hand and told me we'd deal with it together.

The next day I went to the doctor and found out for sure. As soon as he said that the test was positive I knew I was keeping it. As soon as I told Mr. IT my decision he said he was glad and that it would all work out. It didn't take too much time for me to realize that I was actually excited. We went very quickly from being sure it wasn't necessarily what we wanted to realizing we definitely do want this.

I'm now nearly ten weeks. I ended up telling my boss today. I wasn't planning on it. We were waiting until at least 12 weeks but I just (without thinking about it) blurted it out. Everyone at work has taken it so well. My boss is extremely excited and supportive. I can't explain how relieved I am. I haven't been there long and while they couldn't get rid of me for it I didn't know if they would think it's such a good thing and maybe my job would be effected. I really like working there and didn't want any kind of tension or weirdness.

My due date is September 24. Which btw is only 15 days before my 30th birthday. I really didn't think it would happen but... I'm going to be a Mom before I'm 30. Wow
