So, I have this friend...

My friend from work and I were joking yesterday afternoon that she was pregnant. Her son is almost 1 and she was a little late this month. We were laughing about how crazy it would be to have 2 kids under the age of 2. She was going to stop by the pharmacy on the way home to pick up a test and take it when her husband got home just to ease her mind and put the thought that she might possibly be pregnant out of her head.

About half the day went by before I remembered our funny little chat from yesterday and IM'd her to ask how much she & her husband laughed when she brought that test home. She made a little winky face on IM and then proceeded to tell me that she's pregnant. About 5 weeks, apparently. The kicker is that her thyroid went nuts with her first pregnancy and she's not sure she's healthy enough to have this baby. She's seeing her endochrinologist to see if all's well, but until she gets the go or no she's having a tough time emotionally.

Her first impulse was to be excited, obviously. Having another baby now, planned or not, will be easier for her than when her son is older and she's out of the getting-up-in-the-middle-of-the-night mode. She wants to have this new kid even though she's totally taken by surprise. But her excitement is tempered by her fear of getting bad news from the doctor. It's a heavy thing to carry around.

Makes my little worries seem pretty teensy weensy.

OMG you would hear a CLONK and that would be me hitting the floor in a dead faint.
She seems to be handling it though. I wish her well.

Wow. Big news. Hopefully, her mind will be at ease soon about her health.
