Happy Birthday to Me

December 2nd, 2010-
Happy Birthday to me!  I was surprised this morning with a lovely gift from NuBoo.  Yay!  UGGs!  It only took me 5 years to get.  LOL!  I'm so happy.  He's the best boyfriend EVER!

{My favorite 1st pair of UGGs}
Once I arrived at the office,  I was chatting with my sister, Ryree (as usual) while the subject of PMS came up.  I thought I was suffering from a major case of it because I was having superior mood swings.  First I'm happy...then I'm bitter...Girls you know the deal.  Not sure if it was because I'm now 32 years old....eeks!  That may have been the case.  Anyways - turns out that Ryree had just finished her menstrual cycle.  I was like "Really?!  How come I haven't got mines yet?!"  For the record, she always gets her a week before me.  She refers herself as the freakin' alpha female because of this.  You're probably like what?!  Ummm...just read this from Wikipedia which explains it all:  Menstrual cycle   My initial reaction - "Whatevs!"  But in reality, this whole alpha female thing is true.  Anyway, then I started to worry.....Anxiety starts to hit me.  Oh d-d-dear.  I've pretty much have been on time.  So, what next?  Drama starts to unfold.  OH no!  Could this be true??!!  It can't be!!! 

In the meantime, NuBoo previously made dinner reservations for the evening of my birthday at one of my favorite restaurants, Roy's in San Francisco.  After work, we would proceed to our birthday celebration destination.  When I got off work, I immediately rushed to the local CVS Pharmacy to get a 'you know what'.   I arrived at my apartment and yes!  Nobody was home.  I literally ripped open the plastic wrapped box, yanked a test out and peed on it.  Approximately 30 seconds later.....I see a dark '+' sign.  OMFG!  Is this really happening?!?!?!

NuBoo finally arrived at my apartment with Eli. He knew something was up because  I was abnormally quiet.  I finally shared the news to him.  Let's just say once I told him....the entire room was quiet.  We both were just staring into the air in utter silence.  Mixed emotions were felt obviously.  I even was in sort of denial which led me to retake the test.  Luckily, I bought the 3-pack.  I took it  again while waited patiently outside of my bathroom.  Once I got out of the bathroom and it was like dejavu.  Umm Yup.  It's POSITIVE alright!  

So, of course we had our mini confidential baby news celebration simultaneously along with my birthday celebration.  Sucks, that I can't share it with Eli.  But he'll know sooner or later.   Happy Birthday to Me!  Crazy, right?

So, there's the news everyone!!  I'm having a baby!!  Exciting and scary at the same time.  Mainly, because I forgot how it's like to be preggers.  It was only like 12 years since I gave birth to Eli.   

January 26th, 2011 -
And of course, I'm just now posting this now since today but actually back dated it to my birthday because I wanted my readers to experience this happy journey with me!  Why January 26th?  Well, apparently nowadays its routine to WAIT until a pregnant woman's 1st trimester is done because it's the most critical stage to have a miscarriage.  But so far, I'm OK.  Everything is going great.  I'm very happy and blessed.
