Thanks for Your Patience
First off, thanks to all those who left comments on my previous post 2016 & Life’s New Direction. I really appreciate you all taking the time to comment and let me know your guesses. I kind of avoided replying to your comments because I didn’t want to give anything away.
And seeing that I promised to let you know ‘next month’ [which is this month], I guess I shouldn’t make you wait any longer.
The Big Reveal
For those of you who guessed that I am having a baby, you hit the nail on the head.
You are right.
I am, indeed, pregnant.
A little over four months to be exact.
And I like to refer to myself as a ‘Preggy Princess.’ 🙂 I even joke around with my husband and tell him I am going to dig my wedding tiara out of storage and prance around the house, waving like a beauty queen and acting like a million dollars! 🙂
But, my attitude has only been like that for the past month. Before that, it was two months of fatigue and morning sickness all day, every day! [Hence, the lack of blogging.] There were some days that I was so sick and tired [and I was so sick of being sick and tired] that I cried. I blame the tears on the hormones!!
With that being said, we do feel extremely blessed. We are so happy and beyond excited that it hard to express and explain using words.
It’s Gonna Be a Lunar New Year Like No Other
And if you are reading this before Sunday, which is Chinese New Year’s Eve, you should all feel very, very special.
Why? You may ask.
Because you know about the baby before my in-laws do. We couldn’t think of a better time to share our wonderful news. Chinese New Year’s Eve is a time for family. It is a time for joy and happiness. It is a time of coming together. It is a time of good luck and fortune. It is a time of new beginnings.
Plus, my husband and I have something up our sleeve to make the announcement all the more special. I am sure my in-laws are going to be surprised we are going to be parents and shocked that we waited so long to tell [more on that in a later post.]
But, my husband and I are known for throwing in an element of surprise every now and then. We are also known for doing things our way – even though our way may be considered slightly unconventional.
And don’t worry! I will tell you all how it went down in a future post.
[Oh, and I am only four months in and I have oodles of stories to share, so that is why this blog may take a shift from Taiwan travel to more about pregnancy and child birth in Taiwan.]
Happy Lunar New Year
So, let me take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a Happy Chinese New Year!
Gongxi Fa Cai! Happy Year of the Monkey!!
[And thanks for reading and letting me share my joy with all of you!!]
