pregnancy, privacy, single mom by choice, SMC


Dear friends! In my haste to post my news, I didn’t specify that I’m not actually going public for 8 more weeks, which may have been unclear given that this is a public blog! But, for now, let’s keep it off of facebook and any other public forum. I posted a baby-related post today and was trying to speak in code but I see how it looked like a green light. I’m out of town on a business trip and don’t always have access to delete posts. It’s really important to me that my work colleagues not find out until I’m ready to tell them. I’m typing this out on my phone because it feels that urgent! Thanks so much for your messages and more soon from me after I’m home from this super-packed meeting tomorrow night! All is well here. Blood test Wednesday, follow-up test Friday. xo

  1. Oh girl, I have been there. I came out on my blog at week eight and will unveil my stomach to the office this week, week twelve. I am not FB friends with any work people, and I didn’t know any of them read my blog. Regardless, I couldn’t help but post baby videos, and baby articles, and baby anything all over FB even before my eight week mark. It is nearly impossible to keep the cat in the bag. One day, before I was out anywhere on line, my aunt, who I had never told, congratulated my on line (thanx Dad), another friend outed me on my wall on FB, and a trusted colleague outed me to a stranger on our work shuttle bus. This spreads like wild fire. I for one will take your ssssshhhhhh very seriously and tell no one. This does you little good as we only have one common friend and live on separate continents. But the thing is to try to enjoy each moment of telling each person you tell. What they do with your news quickly becomes uncontrollable. And when you try, well…I’ll spare you my horror stories. I am so happy for you. And hope to the high heavens than no one breathes a word of this.

    1. Nice to hear I’m not the only one mismanaging the campaign but you’re right, it takes on a life of its own. Thanks for smacking down my readers a little, I think that will help! šŸ™‚ It’s all with love and good intentions behind it… I keep looking for you on gchat b/c I am dying to talk to you and have so many questions. Let’s figure it out. Hope all is well with you and your lime! We are moving toward sesame seed!
