Fake Out

Feb. 29, 2009

One of the hardest things to do while you are newly pregnant is hiding it from everyone you know. I am not telling ANYONE this time until I know you are safe. I don't want to jinx it. Call me superstitious, but last time I was shouting it from the roof tops. This time around I'm going to try and be a little more reserved... for now. But this time I have some tricks up my sleeve. Lisa and Chris came over on Friday night for a visit. They always bring wine and we always drink it. But if I were to decline their gift of wine they would know in an instant that something was different. So I bought de-alcoholised wine at the grocery store that night, brought it home and poured myself a glass to sip on. When Lisa and Chris arrived I appeared to be already into the "hooch". The icing on the cake was Lisa rubbing my belly and saying "you're drinking wine so, no baby?" I couldn't help myself, I laughed and said, "nope" and tried to contain my inner glee.

The next night was Auntie Annie's and Uncle Mike's engagement party where everyone was offering me something alcoholic to drink. And this time all I had to say was "no thank you, Kevin and I are TRYING, so to be on the safe side I'm not drinking" So of course as soon as you tell family that you are trying to have a baby they all swarm you with hugs and cheers of excitement. Although I did grab your father's champagne to hold it up during a toast so I didn't look like I was being the sister in law who disproved of their relationship and your over protective father grabbed it out from my hand and said "What are you doing!?" "I need to hold a drink up for the toast you nerd" I replied. "Shheeeeesh relax" But of course Papa just happened to be standing beside me and witnessed the whole thing. So he either thinks that I'm pregnant or that your Daddy is a controlling jerk. I'm betting on the first.
