But, in the meantime, I've been working on a mass email to send to close friends and family who we won't tell over the phone. (The idea of calling everyone just to say "we're pregnant" sounds horrifyingly awkward to me.) I sent the draft of the email to BG yesterday.
He laughed. Actually, here is his exact response.
Wow... I thought it would be much shorter :) Something like "After
lots of trying and helping mother nature along..." type thing.
To be honest, it is a bit of a novel. I broke it up into 2 parts: the short story and the long story. The long story went into how people get diagnosed with IF, our diagnosis and our treatments. I also talked about our recent bleeding. Of course I wouldn't put all this information on FB, but I did want to let our closest family and friends know. But maybe not that much. I don't know.
I asked BG to edit it and track changes. I said I wouldn't be offended, to which he replied "I would be offended if someone cut 80% of my report." Perhaps he's right.
I will try again soon.
As seems to be the theme lately, I am off and may be out-of-touch again for a few days, although I hope not this time. I'm wishing for a lazy weekend around my parent's house and garden. I don't think it's time to harvest anything yet, but I don't mind weeding.
I hope the sun is out where you are this weekend. Take care!
