I'm (finally) ready to announce some really big news. My husband and I are having a baby! Well, mostly I'm having a baby, but he's been pretty awesome in looking after us along the way.
Today I am officially 16 weeks, which places me very firmly in the second trimester and I have to say that things are finally looking up. My absence from the blog? Well, the first trimester was pretty rough. I won't say it was the worst, but it wasn't all that pleasant. It seems every pregnant and formerly pregnant woman regaled me with horror stories of their own experiences and in comparison I felt kind of wimpy, but I was perfectly fine with that. In the end, I simply tried to make sure I had enough energy to wrangle classes full of college students and stay on top of grading their assignments which meant it was necessary to reduce my efforts elsewhere.
But for now, baby, husband, and I are doing well. Little baby chickadee has an official due date of June 21st which happens to be my dad's birthday. In one of our last conversations, I asked him to please pick out some good kids for me, and I really believe he has.
