i have to admit, part of why i haven't been as great at keeping up with the blog lately is because... yup, i'm pregnant! obviously my productivity went down as i went through 1st trimester morning sickness (well, it was more like all day sickness) and just came to terms with the next steps in our lives! we seem to have passed all of the tests okay (at the lovely age of 38, this pregnancy is termed a "geriatric pregnancy" so you can understand why i'm a little nervous) so, at just over 19 weeks, i am putting the news out there into the blogosphere. meet mcbaby!!! (as L and i have named him/her - it looks like it's a her, but the tech wasn't sure so we're still trying to be gender neutral)
i am a little nervous, i'm not the spring chicken i used to be, and of course finances always come into play, but i am trying to enjoy the honeymoon period of this pregnancy while still juggling everything else - the day job, the jewelry making, and the running of the household. we are all very excited about the next chapter in our lives - especially the mini, who already seems to love this new little one. well, until he/she starts stealing toys and whacking people on the head.
now if i could just budget a little better, i'd be good.
