Yes, I’m knocked up (again). Preggo (again). Temporarily-unemployable in TV-host land (again). And I’ve been living a lie to all of you since I first found out. Yup, there’ll be another incarnation of LadyP in our home come early March.
For the record, I fully blame Savvy Sassy Moms for this: You see, I went to a fun little event she had back in May, miraculously won a fabulous Nuka Maternity dress AND a copy of the flirty pregnancy-style book Bump It Up. And then I prolifically and jokingly posted (on this very blog!) how I was tempted to grow another baby in my belly because of the great prize I won. Ha ha. Joke’s on me. Apparently someone upstairs thought I was being serious (proof that there is an all-powerful God, I’m thinking).
Upon finding out about this surprise pregnancy – AGAIN – (as I battled vomiting in the bathroom for the entire duration of my friend’s baby shower), my sister informed me how my Hubby and I apparently need a sex ed class… and my mom said something along the lines of “You’d better tell people you did this on purpose so they don’t think you’re that naive about how babies are made.” In the meantime, I was keeping my mouth shut (out of lack of a better plan, nervousness and desperation) because I was seriously being considered for a dream job over at CNN. Cut to 2 days ago: After months of auditions/tests, I finally found out I didn’t get the job. And with my growing belly no longer hide-able, the jig is finally up. Considering the recent pictures I’ve posted, I’ve done an arguably decent job covering it up, right?
Forgive me for being a fraud.
From here on out, TheFabMom will be all about raising my 1-year old daughter, prepping for my next baby and wondering how the hell I’m gonna pull this whole thing off while still trying to keep life fabulous with a big fat belly (paired with high heels)… and then with two little people who don’t know how to wipe their own butts. As if I don’t have enough diapers around here already.
In all seriousness: We’re happy. We’re excited. We’re a bit freaked out.
Anyone out there rocking it with back-to-back babies? Do tell…
