Secrets Don't Make Friends

I'm not one for keeping a secret about myself.  I've always been a very open book and like to share with the world anything they'd like to know.  My friends probably know WAY too much information about my bowel habits, embarrassing stories, and menstruation.  Not exactly a shy girl.

Which makes it all the more amazing that I can keep a pregnancy secret for so long.  With Paisley, I announced it at 13 weeks after our NT scan.  Even then, I would have hid it longer if my belly bump wasn't starting to give me away.  It's kind of fun being one of the only people who knows that you are growing a miracle in your uterus.  And let's face it- who likes thinking that their boss, parents, and even strangers are calculating exactly when something personal may have been happening with the spouse.

With that little tidbit of useless information, I'd love to announce that our 2nd baby is due in August!!!  I'm 12 weeks pregnant and things are checking out perfectly.  We are so incredibly thankful that a no treatment baby could happen for us.    I would have posted this much sooner, but we have so many real life friends and family who read my blog that I couldn't let the news slip until now.  It gave us a wonderful opportunity to tell people in person this time around and really celebrate our growing family.

I'll post more about how I found out and how I've been feeling tomorrow.  Just wanted to let you in on my little, ever-growing secret!!!
