Back From BlogHer Blissfully Beaming :)

WOW What a weekend! Simply amazing! A.) I was in NY. B.) I was surrounded by the most amazing women ever and C.) I received some very happy, hopeful news but more on that in a bit… promise! :)

Sorry I didn’t post during the conference. I was hoping to get at least an inspiring quote published but it just didn’t happen. I was soaking up every possible moment that I could. Friday started with the BlogHer 5K and had a blast running and chatting with TrainerMomma. After a wonderful time networking and attending sessions at the conference I ended my day at a cocktail party with some amazing food bloggers, including the unbelievable Ree and Jaden. Yea… I felt a wee bit out of my league but it was an awesome time. Afterwards Sahar (from FatFighter.TV) and I walked around the city soaking in the amazing New York energy.

Saturday was more of the same awesome-ness (have I used that word enough?) with a bit more pressure mixed in. It was my day to present. The topic? Fitness Blogging – Motivate Yourself and Your Readers which is something I’m not only passionate about but have been doing for 5 years now. I was confident but nervous. Who isn’t when they are about to moderate a panel in front of a room full of people?

I’m happy to say it went well. The audience seemed interested, there were lots of great questions and I don’t think many people walked out. Always a good sign. :) If you are interested in the discussion we had click here to check out the transcript on the BlogHer web site.

After the presentation I chatted with a few folks and had a really great conversation with Lorrie. This is the second BlogHer were we’ve been able to hang out. She is totally… yup you guessed it… awesome!

By 4 o’clock I was done. FINISHED. Wiped out. I ended up skipping the end of the conference and chilling in my room for a bit. Then my friend Jen and I (in the picture above with me) decided to hit the town.

We really wanted to see a show so we walked to Times Square. There’s Jen checking out the tkts board. See her? Waaaaaaay over there? ;)

We decided on The Adam’s Family and purchased tickets from a “broker”. At least that’s what he called himself. Regardless, he was an absolute trip!

I did wear a cute dress for our night out and I have to admit they are getting more and more comfortable. And I don’t mean physically, I mean mentally. I’m trying to break out of my typical jeans and t-shirt look. I think it’s about time.

Since we were all dressed up, had tickets to the show and an hour to spare, we went out for sushi at Blue Fin. A-mazing!

On the walk to the theater we jokingly oogled some cheesecake.

Then it was time for the show.

Afterwards we met up with Lorrie again and hung out at a bar for a few hours sipping sangria and chatting.

We then strolled back to the Hilton and hit the CheezburgHER party for a bit. We were both hungry and enjoyed our midnight snack guilt free.

It was a late night but I still woke up bright and early for my training run. I met Kath, Jess, Caronae, Tina and Tara in the lobby and we hit the Central park loop for 6 miles. Here’s a picture Jess, Tina and I on a water break thanks to Kath.

I didn’t get a chart from the Nike+ (long story) but I took this sweaty picture as “proof.” :)

*sigh* OK.. on to this “Blissfully Beaming” part. A few minutes after that picture was taken I took a pregnancy test on a whim. I was a few days late, not really worried about it but curious. I have been back and forth on this baby thing over and over in my head but I just couldn’t shake the nagging little voice that’s been telling me it’s the right time.

You may or may not know of my miscarriage earlier this year but that was more devastating to me then I really wanted to admit. Every pregnant women I’ve seen has almost brought me to tears. Every baby, a sad smile.

I’m happy to say the test was positive. HOWEVER, I am not getting my hopes up and I’m trying really hard not to think about it. Almost impossible, I know.. but doable. Last time I was so worked up and I tried so hard to keep it a secret it stressed me out. You may think I’m crazy for announcing this on the blog so early but whatever happens, I’m going to spill my guts anyway so I decided to do it sooner rather then later.

Wow I think I’m speechless now. What do you possible talk about after you tell everyone you’ve had a positive pregnancy test but you don’t really want to talk about it just quite yet?

I know! how about the fact that after this crazy, amazing, EXAHAUSTING weekend I am in no way ready to start the work week. Oh! and it’s not just any work week but my LAST work week. That’s right… 5 little days are all that’s between me and complete professional freedom.

WOW

I can hardly believe it myself. Actually, I can hardly believe anything I wrote in this post.

Today I am full of peace, gratitude and happiness.

    Roni, I've followed your blog for 3 years and I don't think I've ever commented, but felt so compelled this time. I had a miscarriage while trying to conceive our first baby and it was overwhelmingly devastating. It made the prospect of actually getting pregnant so much more scary because I was so fearful that it might be taken away. When we did get pregnant with our son, I was halfway through my pregnancy before I could allow myself to enjoy it and accept that it was actually going to happen. That being the case, I just wanted to say that I can imagine the mixture of emotions you're feeling right now (with hormones thrown in too). I know you aren't asking, but my best advice is to feel what you feel and be fully present in the moment. At this moment you are pregnant! Big congratulations to you and prayers for a wonderful prenancy! Reply

    I just got a family member, really worried, asking me why just kept on saying outloud "Oh... Oohhh.... OOOhhhhh.... OOOHHH.... OOOOOOHHHHH!!!!" in front of the computer. OK, I'm going to go your way on this. I know you don't wanna talk about it, so I wont go all ballons falling from the ceiling and say CONGRATULATIONS RONI, I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU I'll just keep my best poker face, and ask you if this, uhm HAPPY news will somehow change your marathon training schedule. Because really, I mean, well, you know. I'll do my best to create an energy ball in every night's meditation session and then send it flying up to the north =) Reply

I'm so glad you are pregnant it's the best thing in the world. Enjoy this special time like you did with the weight loss. I love you Roni even though I never met you..

    Congratulations Roni! I think you are smart for letting the word out right away. You should celebrate this moment, not live in fear of what may happen. I am a believer that everything happens for a reason, and we learn from each experience, even the bad/sad ones. You may not see it yet, but after my own miscarriage experience (long after) I did see a "why": my marriage grew stronger, and I was more certain about adding another child to our family. I do still carry my lost baby in my heart but I no longer hurt, I'm thankful for all s/he gave me. So my hope for you is a happy uneventful pregnancy, and that you too will one day find the answer to "why?". Reply

    Roni - I had a miscarriage (10 years ago next month) at 13 weeks. I went on to have two wonderful girls that are now 9 and 5 1/2 that are the light of my life, but I still remember how scared I was to feel excited about the pregnancies. I will never forget that baby, that my husband and I nicknamed ANGEL. We have even talked to the girls about Angel after a family friend miscarried and they wondered where the baby went to. The girls love the fact that their ANGEL is in heaven playing with our two dogs and my husbands best friend (that they adored) that died. I wish you all the luck in the world. Reply

    Roni- Not sure how I missed that post back in April. You are not alone! My very first pregnancy was ectopic. Thankfully we caught it early enough that no damage was done. I just knew that something was wrong. It was hard enough to go through that - I can't imagine losing a baby later in a pregnancy! But when I got pregnant with my son I just knew that everything would be fine. If you are feeling great than I'm sure it will all work out well - We are all SO excited for you and can't wait to follow you on your journey! (hugs) Reply

    I wish I could tell you how much hope you have given me today. When we had our miscarriage in June, I kept telling myself, "Roni survived this." although I know people in my life who have had miscarriages, I somehow focused on you as the person who continued to live her life in a meaningful and honest way. And now this amazing news? I am thrilled for you. Thrilled. And maybe even thinking about allowing myself to consider the possibility that I may find myself holding two pink lines again. I celebrate with you. And send as many healthy mama and baby vibes as possible. (As does Mrs Potato Head.) Reply

Your little guy will make a great big brother and assist you much like my 5 year old does me with the 1 year old baby (I think it's about the same age gap, maybe?) I find the age difference to be really helpful as they want to teach the younger one and also don't have as many feelings of jealousy throughout the experience. Congratulations indeed! I will hold your family in my prayers that this one is a strong and healthy pregnancy. I believe with all my heart it will be though. Reply

    Hi Roni! Long time reader, very occasional poster. I am thrilled for you! I know how devastating a loss can be myself. My first pregnancy was an ectopic that resulted in a tubal rupture.

    Like so many others on here, I can relate personally to having a miscarriage. I made the mistake of keeping it a secret for a long time.

    Ronni, I know, I know, we can't count our chickens before they hatch, but I'm excited for you anyway. Being eight months pregnant at BlogHer this may sound crazy coming from me, but I can say that I relate. I miscarried right after BlogHer last year, and seeing all this gestating life around me was painful. I believe that you will be a fantastic mother soon enough. Thinking of you and that sassy haircut! Reply

    So happy for you, Roni! I think it's really brave for you to share your personal experiences with pregnancy and miscarriage. Lots of women can relate, and they might feel like they're going through everyone alone. It takes a lot of guts to put yourself out there like you do. Best of luck to you!! Reply

    congrats to you Roni My spouse and I have been trying for 1 1/2 yrs but just can't seem to get a 2nd bundle of joy. our daughter will be 5 in January and I will be 35. I was hoping to be done w/ having babies by then but I am still hopeful that things will turn out "positive" for us too. Congrats and can't wait to continue to follow your journeys :) Reply
