This week I am starting my bump pictures. I saw this awesome idea of using a chalkboard as a prop in the weekly pictures on the Little Baby Garvin Blog. I thought it was so cute so I thought I'd do a little chalkboard of my own!
Total weight gain/loss: None! Yay!

Best moment this week: Telling my boss and having one less thing to panic about.
Have you told family and friends: Yes---most everyone is now aware. We announced this week

Weekly Wisdom: Don't dread telling your boss, it won't be that bad!
Looking forward to: The next ultrasound
Today we (the other manager and myself) told our boss about the pregnancies. The anticipation over all of these past few weeks has been growing and growing--it ended up actually made me sick to my stomach. Last night I woke up, wide awake and couldn't sleep. I was worrying so much!
We planned on telling her first thing in the morning to get it over with. I was so nervous! The morning was horrible! Driving to work I got pulled over for speeding and I got a ticket ($161!). I grabbed my lunch box which had the empty containers from the day before (read: no snacks all day!) and then when I got to work, I had an email that my boss wouldn't be in until 11!!! Ugh! I was so nervous and mentally prepared to do it asap and I had to wait. Long story short, she got there at 11 and we told her right away. While she was visibly worried about what is going to happen for year-end, she was great and my nerves and worrying weren't necessary!
10 weeks down, 30 to go!
