These last few months, I’ve been very delinquent about posting to my blog. I didn’t stop reading but had not been sharing my tid bits, my rants, my opinions for a little while.
Well, the time has come for the grand explanation of my hiatus, my sabbatical, my very missed absence from daily or at least weekly posts. Now before I proceed, I must say that it was for very valid reasons why I did not share this before, which I will get into after I spill it.
OK …. Are You Ready???
On September 17, 2006 at 8:07 p.m., I gave birth to my first child, a wonderfully handsome, active, ready for the world, 7lb 20z baby boy.
Yes people, CoolDestiny has now become a mother.
Now, most of my readers would by now know that I do not post much about my personal life in terms of relationships, work, family, etc. I’m more of a commentator of sorts, sharing little “insignificant” tid bits about some of my experiences. This is because, only 2 of my closest friends know about this blog and know that it is me. My BF [now evolved from boyfriend to baby-father :)] doesn’t know about this blog and wouldn’t approve of me having one (yes, I asked, after the fact of course but I did ask). As a result, I only allow snippets of me to be revealed.
Nonetheless, it would be remiss of me not to share this wonderful news with a group of people I consider friends, although we have only known each other in the world of cyberspace.
I have had a wonderful pregnancy, so wonderful that my obgyn says “I make this look too easy”. My weight gain was great (I only put on 16 lbs!!), my blood pressure was normal, I didn’t develop gestational diabetes which was a concern for both the doc and myself and I’ve pretty much, for the most part, been able to control and overcome the terrible mood swings as a result of hormonal changes in pregnancy. So, all in all I had it good. My delivery was by c-section which I didn’t want but I’m glad that both of us are fine.
So there you have it. The reasons. I hope you’re all not upset with me for not sharing this with you. If you are, get over it!!! Thanks for always stopping by and checking in. It meant a lot. My thoughts wander now as to whether this blog is going to now be all about my son, but I still have my anonymity to protect so I may still be a bit shielded in what I share, provided I’ll have the time to post!
Take Care everyone.
