I've known that I'm pregnant since before Christmas, and have survived the dreaded first trimester, and everything is, fortunately, going well.
When I found out I was pregnant I decided to start a blog, a blog about being 40, and unmarried, and pregnant--a state I never thought I'd find myself in again. So I did start one; I think I made 6 entries. As I mentioned, first trimester was rough, and I just didn't have it in me to keep up with it, but I thought you might want to see my first entry of that blog before I go and delete it....
I’m already behind. My bright idea hit yesterday, but I somehow didn't manage to get this posted until today.
I decided yesterday that I’m going to blog about this "advanced maternal age" pregnancy of mine. How original, I know. But listen, listen, this does have a bit of a twist because yesterday, the day I should have fired up this new blog, because it was the very day I discovered I was pregnant, was also the day that my divorce was final.
It’s been a long time coming, my ex (I can legitimately say that now) moved out more than two years ago, but it took us a while to get our shit together and actually come to some sort of divorce agreement, and then you have that State of California mandated 6-month “cooling off period,” which ended yesterday, Sunday December 21 -- the very same day I peed on to the Clearblue Easy pregnancy test and witnessed the flashing digital hour glass change to the digital display “Pregnant.”
What are the chances of that???
Slim to none.
And how the hell do I feel about it? Well, I have to say that I’m more than a little miffed that I can’t uncork the Champagne that I’ve been saving for just this occasion. And I’m feeling a bit slighted that now that I’m "single" I’m going to be drooling on my desk during unplanned naps at work, and feeling sick most of the time for the foreseeable future.
That so does NOT scream out sexy divorcee.
