I'm having a secret affair with the McDonald's Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Bagel. It all started in 2004 while Eric was deployed and the Lowe's store I worked at had a McDonald's in the shopping center. Of course it was innocent at first but I soon began to be a daily ritual since my lunch hour was from 0900-1000 (the shift was 0500-1400).
I soon called it quits when I started my diet a few years ago, and I thought it was a nice clean break since I had closure...but I guess I was wrong.
I slipped up a few weeks ago, and now often find myself fantasizing about it at all hours of the day...and reminiscing about all the wonderful minutes we shared as I devoured it. And lately, it's been all about the Lucky Charms too :o)
I guess what I'm really trying to say is.....oh well, I'm going to embrace my cravings b/c today I am in my 12th week of pregnancy! The first 11 weeks I was honestly waiting/worrying about having another miscarriage, and I only told my work b/c of there being certain patients that I need to stay away from. I know that I'm not completely out of the woods yet, but at least I feel comfortable sharing this wonderful news!
Oh yeah...did I mention it's TWINS!!! I had my first ultrasound today, and I suspected it when my stomach started to pooch out at 9 wks, but I was losing weight because of how sick I've been.
Eric is SOOOOOOOOOOOO excited, and has the ultrasound pictures already in his ruck sack to bring to work with him in the morning.
My due date is 25 March, but twins are lucky to make it to 36 weeks, so it could be as early as February. Please continue to keep our family in your prayers!!
