The journey begins.
Thanks for all the congratulations and well-wishes about the wee-one growing in my belly. We couldn't be more happy and elated and excited and scared and thrilled and and and and... and every other emotion possible. I've wanted to blog about being pregnant for so long but I also wanted to be cautious and wait till things were more established in there. I see a lot of women miscarrying in the E.R. and to say it freaked me out was an understatement. I didn't want to happily blog about this in the early weeks and then have something happen. It would've just been too difficult. So we waited. And now I am 12 weeks and 3 days pregnant! And starting my second trimester this Friday! Still not very far along but past many of the scary humps of early pregnancy. Here's to hoping the next 6-ish months go smoothly (and quickly).
We missed our local farmer's market this past week. I was working and Lee was flying home from Spain. We found another farmer's market in Cambridge and took the bus there this afternoon to check it out. It wasn't as big as the Brookline Farmer's Market but it had all the delicious locally-grown produce that we're used to getting. And it wasn't nearly as crowded! We bought many wonderful things then bussed home and had open-faced tomato sandwiches for lunch. It doesn't get much better than that.
If you've had kids, did you find out at 20 weeks what you were having or did you wait? I am too impatient and will be finding out Oct 24th. I know, I know. It's the one true surprise in life. For me, though, the 'one true surprise' was getting pregnant in the first place!
