a little bit pregnant

That' me. I'm brand spankin new pregnant. I realize only too well that I might lose this little glimpse of life. I'm 35. I lost the baby last year. But I would still tell you all if I did, because
that's how I roll. So I might as well tell you that I am pregnant. I am :) Due in December.

When I asked for advice on Facebook a month back about how to get pregnant,
I got about 12 jokes on the theme of get drunk, have mad sex, and wake the
next morning and PANIC
well...
it worked.


Deep breath.

Deeeeep breath.

Hello Maggie and congratulations.

This is the first time I've visited your blog...came through 'some whine with cheese.' Laurnie linked me to your beautiful piece on Chelsea and her memorial. I like your writing style and your profile tagline..'one woman telling the truth about my life.' That's why I write. Truth. Facing it and making it fit.

Blessings to you and yours.

Beautiful news, Maggie May. When I first started blogging and following you, you were bravely dealing with the aftermath of that terrible loss last year. I look forward to hearing you tell us all over the next months about how you nurture this "little glimpse of life" and make this world a richer more beautiful sight. All the best and congratulations.

MAGGIEE!!! I saw this at like 4am when I couldn't sleep and I actually sat up in bed (was on my blackberry) and read right away when I saw your title. Love it! Stay positive. Please take care of yourself. Eat fruits and veggies and lay down. Know that I am thinking of you.

Petit fleur said...

Congratulations to you ALL!! I'm so overjoyed for you and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

And, just to give you some extra encouragement, I had my son at 42. He was my first and likely only. But, I had him at the ripe ole age of 42, with gestational diabetes and spiking blood pressure. You will be just fine. To my thinking, you're a spring chicken! (Only much prettier!)
Love you,

Oh my. Just saw this and your latest post. Baby, please stay put nice and safe and warm....

Lora said...

congratulations and good luck. I saw this the other day and wanted to write something special, but I didn't know what. Something that came from my guts. Something that said how I know all about that pain and hope and fear and hope and love and hope and the eternal prayer and hope and hope and hope and hope and hope. And how every step you take you take lightly and every thing you do you do deliberately and every hope you hope you hope hopely. But the words just wouldn't come.

Love to you Miss Maggie May
