Some of you may have been wondering why I’ve been so quiet on social media lately. Well on Twitter, not on my blog, which has been sorely neglected for some time now. I’ve been busy sleeping and feeling tired all the time because I’m pregnant! Baby Fabulous is due on February 26, 2012, and I’m just finishing up the first trimester. I can finally tell the internets now since I’ve seen the ultrasound and there really is a baby in there. I’m feeling much better now that I’m past the nausea of the first trimester. Now I just have two new hobbies: sleeping and eating. I’ve been wanting to do some exercise but pregnancy and a heat wave don’t inspire much activity. I’m dreaming of Fall.
I’m learning that pregnancy means that strangers will ask you personal things without batting an eye. Of course, I have no intention of answering personal questions so I hope they are ready for disappointment. Also, the world would love to shut pregnant women in a quiet room and not let them do anything at all. There are so many so-called rules that are “just in case this might hurt the baby” with no scientific evidence to back them up. I spend so much time looking for actual reputable information that comes from real doctors and scientists. Luckily, I have a great doctor who is calm and not fear-mongering or “woo” at all.
I will probably blog more about the pregnancy and planning for the arrival as things move along. I also have a bunch of mini book reviews to post that will be up soon. So wish me luck that the baby decides not to take this route into the world. The thought of childbirth has always conjured up this image for me.
