So Many Changes Part II

Months back I had a lapse in reality and thought it would be a good idea to start a family and Ben had even a bigger lapse in judgment and agreed. Well months and months past and no luck. I had grown up with the notion that when you decided it was time to have baby you and your loved one would try to create a baby and within in months you would be pregnant. That notion quickly flew out the window. I finally saw a doctor in June and she gave me a magic pill. I was told that it may still take a few months on this pill to get pregnant.

Well it is now July and I finally decided to do something about my chronic heartburn. I saw a doctor and he thought it would be great idea to stick a tiny camera down my throat. When I got to the surgery center the nurse made me take a pregnancy test which came back negative. I had the procedure and went home.

A few days later, a Friday, I woke up for another fun filled day at work. The night before I had not been feeling well and now had a canker sore. I had one home pregnancy test and since I was debating whether or not to take it I decided it was time to use it so I could stop thinking about it. Well, I took it and went about getting ready for my day. Three minutes later I went back to look at it and I saw something I thought I would never ever see....a faint line. I WAS PREGNANT!!!

I started shaking and screaming my words of joy to the dogs. No one else was around. Well, what is a girl to do at this point? Well I called my mother. After talking to her I called the father to be who had very little reaction to the news.

Months have passed and I am now almost 11 weeks pregnant. I am due Easter Sunday and since I am Jewish I am free and have nothing else to do that day. I am still in shock that I am going to be a mother. Miracles do happen.

So Many Changes

So many changes have happened in the last three months. I moved to Illinois, I got married, got a new job and now, officially, I am no longer Tammy Silberman of Wisconsin. I am now Tammy Weiss of Illinois.

But I am still Tammy Weiss the Packer Fan!

Rocky Start

The year 2008 has already gotten off to a rocky start. Lately I have been feeling very uninspired, however, I felt the need to share this bit of sad news in the hope that all would keep this family in their prayers.

This past Saturday the Chicago police department pulled the body of one of my former classmates out of Lake Michigan. Robyn Bercovici was only 27 and a social worker in downtown Chicago. They have declared it a drowning but are unsure if it was suicide or murder.

I can only imagine the pain and confusion the family is in during such a horrible time. I hope they know that they are in my thoughts and the thoughts of many others.
