Secrets Revealed!

Well, the time has finally come to explain my absence from the blogging world...I don't know how to say it poetically so I'll just blurt it out. Coach knocked me up. Dang, men! Yep, we oopsed again and now I've got a bun in the oven. I had a scare the month before and was sort of relieved when it turned out I wasn't. You think we would have been more careful, but you've seen Coach in those boots, hard to resist! So, now begins months of hardship on my body. I am always really sick for the first few months and moving is not easy, putting running way out of the picture. Then near the end, my pelvic bone separates making every movement excruciating, again there will be no running. So you see its not that we don't want more kids, its just that it takes me so completely out of the game, that we were hoping to wait a while longer. I had lots of plans for this year, especially running/triathlon wise and I selfishly wanted to accomplish them. That half-marathon that I already signed up and paid for, about a week before my due date (beginning of July), it's definitely out.

The proof- yes I just posted a pic of a stick I peed on!

I'm not trying to seem all down about this, I am happy that we are adding to our family, and if it is a girl, I will be even more thrilled. It just usually takes me a few months, till I can stand and eat again, to get excited about it. But, unfortunately when I feel this sick, reading and writing blogs falls by the wayside and I hate that. I miss you guys. It sounds dumb, but I don't like not knowing what you're up to. I will try to stay in contact as much as possible and we still have more giveaways to do. Plus, there is always Coach if he can find the time. My saint of a husband has been working all day, then coming home and taking of the boys, the house, and me. It doesn't leave him time for much else, but I will try and force him to take a break and let you all know what he is up to. For now it is all about waiting this out. I also have some more blood tests to do for lyme disease again as the first round showed that I did have a prior infection. More waiting for that.

I really hope you are all doing well and accomplishing your goals. Don't forget that we do have a giveaway going on that ends tonight. Two winners will get their pick from Bondi Band! Just clickety HERE to enter. Hope to catch up with you all soon!

So excited for you. I hope you have a happy and healthy pregnancy!
