Awkward

How do you tell someone something so life changing?

I've found I'm surprisingly awkward about it. I thought when March 1st came I'd be quick to spread the news, but that just hasn't been the case.

Some people have opened the conversation so I can smoothly fit it in but for most I've awkwardly and suddenly blurted it out.

So blog friends, I blurt… I'm pregnant!

I'm due September 17th so I'm just shy of 2 months along. To quote a friend of mine, "Now you start talking in weeks and none of us understand you anymore." So I'm' going to try to refer to my time in months.

We're so excited for this new phase of life and can't wait to see the changes that come.

It may be wrong but one of my first thoughts was, "What does this mean for my blog?" I don't want to suddenly shift to a Mommy blog since I think I'll lose half my readers. As a solution I've started a second blog that is dedicated to Baby Wiebe. This site will include all of my baby related thoughts while my current blog will remain as is. Feel free to visit both sites if you're interested, it's okay if you're not.

I can't guarantee I'll keep both blogs, one day they'll probably combine but for now I think it's a good plan.

So blog friends and strangers, celebrate with us and head over to Baby Wiebe.
