Are you sitting down?

For this is wisdom; to live,To take what fate, or the Gods, may give.-- Laurence Hope

Last Wednesday I went to the OB/GYN to have an IUD installed. After having been advised that I was pretty much in menopause, I'd decided to just cover the bases and get an IUD to prevent any surprises. Ahhhh.... the best laid plans.

Dr. Durland came into the room after they took my pee for a test, and announced that I'm 6 weeks pregnant.


The doctors are amazed thus far... obviously this was not supposed to happen, considering the hell my body has been through.

This is me with Lydia's little girl Alexandra right around April 22nd of this past year. That was only 10 months ago, and I was still sooooo sick. Now I'm 160 pounds, (I'd rather be 140.) but healthy and energetic...

So... here I go on some sort of adventure. While there are lots of unanswered questions out there about the future, I know that it's all going to work out just as it's supposed to. Because how could it work any other way? So... I'm getting some good lessons in "letting go"/surrendering/serenity. 'Cause it's all out of my hands at this moment.

I am seeing a high-risk OB/GYN at St. Luke's on Wednesday morning... (happy valentine's day, little button) and I'll know more then.

In the meanwhile, I've got my fingers and legs crossed, doing lots of praying, and wishing I could have a big steaming cup of coffee and a cigarette right now.

I'm sitting but I think I just shit in my pants. Sorry too crass. BUT....GOOD for you! I'll pray to powers that be for you and your button.

As a mom that has had two oops of her own, let me say that I get happy and teary eyed when I learn of women who wanted but thought they couldn't have the little tyrants.

Congratulations and may she/he be healthy and as beautiful as she/he's Momma! May Momma Goddess stay healthy and vibrant throughout the process. I heart you and now I understand your text messages!

Incredible news! I am sooooo happy for you! You will make a GREAT mom. I will be thinking of you often and praying for you and your family. Now is the time for living. So much to experience and so much to teach.

On another note I am glad that you didn't get the IUD. Mine has always given me problems and hurts. Even though my dentist said that it was just the thing I needed.

She has such a sense of humor, that Big Whoever that rules this universe. But what better time than when you're healthy, big-bad-habit free and settled?

You *know* you gotta ride the float now, so you can show the pix years from now and say "you were on that float too".

To add on to my previous comment since I left out half of a sentence in order tomake myself sound like a freaking moron…

I love hearing people who thought they couldn't have children actually having children and being excited about it!

I heart you!
