There really IS something in the water

There MUST be something in the water. Another friend announced today that she’s also pregnant with baby #2! That makes four of my close friends (in this area) all pregnant with their second child. We’re all on the advisory committee for our AP group too. Sheesh, I didn’t know being pregnant was a prerequisite for the committee. I’ll have to check my “job description” again. J/K No pressure for me though, huh? ;-)

It would almost make me wonder if I was pregnant too except that I recently received confirmation that I’m not. How do I know? No, not ‘cuz I got my period – I *still* haven’t had a period since Ava was born. It’s been two lovely years of no pads or tampons (or the Diva Cup – which I plan to order whenever my cycles return. It’s really amazing how many women I know who are using the Diva these days – both crunchies and non-crunchies alike!). Anyway, back to my story and why I know I’m not pg…When I was at the doctor a couple weeks ago for my annual exam, she commented that my cervix had a blue-ish tint to it and that commonly happens with pregnancy. So she ordered a pg test and I peed in a cup. It came back negative. *insert both sigh of relief and slight disappointment here* Not sure why my cervix is blue (maybe it’s sad), but it ain’t cuz I’m gestating. ;-)

So now I must extend my congratulations to Heather as well! I’m looking forward to watching all of your bellies grow and learning from you as you all continue to breastfeed while pregnant and then go on to tandem nurse (provided your first nurslings don’t self-wean before then). Belly rubs to all. ;)

This seems like a good time for a friendly reminder and shameless plug that I sell “I’m going to be a big brother” and “I’m going to be a big sister” shirts! Newly redesigned too! ;)

HNT #2 and a plug for Metaphoric Monday

This is a pretty cheesy (pun intended) pic for HNT (Half-Nekkid Thursday), but after a woman told me yesterday that I have the “nicest teeth she’s ever seen,” I figured why not! ;-)

Get the HNT guidelines by clicking on the button below and don’t forget to check out all the other half-nekkid folks! Happy HNT!

Also, my hubby is trying to start up a new “take a picture” day that he has dubbed Metaphoric Monday. Check it out over on brain droppings. The topic for Monday, Sept. 19 is “Eat one’s words.” :-) Play along, won’t ya?
