or...Baby on the way...or...Son of Crash, is the world ready?

We are pleased to announce that we have indeed opted for the full-blown mammal experience. Of course, I will be doing the birth & lactation parts of it. Things are going very well so far. I have had some food aversions, due in part to my new super smell powers, and there is a particular kind of salad that I can no longer be in the same room with. Only one incidence of vomiting, and I think it was more of a case of too large a meal and nowhere to put it (return to sender) rather than nausea.

With the potential of this in mind last year (doctor thought it might take six months to a year to conceive, but no) I cleared my calendar, avoided making any unrelated goals for 2007 and since have just been concentrating on doing a bit of research, getting plenty of sleep, plenty of exercise and paying attention to my nutrition. There have been some trips I could have taken, places I could have gone, but I am taking this opportunity to just charge up my batteries and prepare for the future. I do have a large project for work, but I am mostly working from home so it is not very stressful and I don't have to worry about buying lots of new maternity clothes. So far I've gotten by on a pair of maternity jeans, some stretchy waist pants and my larger sweaters and T-shirts.

I went to the Kid Stuff tag sale yesterday and bought cute baby things.

still thinking about names

From the Sage: Hexagram 32 from the I Ching (Wilhelm) Duration is...the self-contained and therefore self-renewing movement of an organized, firmly integrated whole, taking place in accordance with immutable laws and beginning anew at every ending. The end is reached by an inward movement, by inhalation, systole, contraction, and this movement turns into a new beginning, in which the movement is directed outward, in exhalation, diastole, expansion...

How very cool! May the pregnancy continue well, and may your birth be easy and everyone ridiculously healthy afterward.

Congradulations! wow! One note: You two are going to be in for a shock. Words longer than 5 letters will be harder and harder to use in regular speech. Try "Da Da" or "Whee!" on for size...

Whoa!!! Congratulations to you and Crash! Have you at least thought up a pre-birth nickname for ease of referral? Hmm...Ha'penny? Crashlet? :)

Ha! In the email to my office (before the last ultrasound) I said we were having a Penlet or a Crashlet. Mostly we call him "The Kid".

Hi there! Congrats to both you and Crash on the upcoming little one, and on your marriage. Haven't seen you two in ages. Hope all continues well. -Annabel

I hope the wee one will be only as much like Crash (and yourself) as you both can handle... ;-)
