So, um, yeah. Pregnant again.

First of all, thanks to everyone who's shared happy thoughts and well-wishes - we're all really excited, and it's fun to hear you say such nice things!

So I guess I should give you a quick update on what's what. I'm almost 12 weeks pregnant, due on November 6. I feel great - no nausea, no nothing - though I've been incredibly tired for the past couple of months. If I yawn when you're talking, it is likely not because you're boring me. Yesterday I actually craved chocolate, notable both because I never crave chocolate, and because it came on the heels of a pickle-craving... a bit stereotypical, no? Yes, I will still run the Bolder-Boulder. No, we will not find out if this one's a boy or a girl. Yes, Joker gets 49% of the name vote again. And anyone who says that not drinking is no big deal is totally lying.

All signs point to a healthy baby thus far, and I am thrilled that's "baby" in the singular. The Bug knows that there's a "baby in Mommy's tummy," but I'm pretty sure she won't know her world's about to be rocked until the baby actually arrives. And until said baby shows his or her face, s/he will go by the Moppet on this blog. You'll also see a new post label - something that separates the "baby stuff" from the, I don't know... "kid stuff"?? Still working on that.

I cannot even fathom the increase in chaos we'll experience, but lucky for me, I'm way to busy to even think about it. Thanks again for all your virtual high fives!

i can't believe you're going to run a 5K PG! well, i could believe it-you're a great runner-but still! have you ever run this particular course? i know you ran when you were PG with the Bug..which, i admire, because i've been exercising since i was 15 and then when I got PG i stepped on the elliptical and almost puked and said 'i can take a sabbatical from this.'

AWWW! Awesome! I am so glad that you are healthy and happy and not sick. Pregnancy DOES NOT agree with my body. I get horribly ill while I am pregnant. With Hannah I was so very sick I had to have home IVs and a home health nurse and I gave birth to her 40 lbs lighter than I got pregnant (I lost 60 lbs but gained 20 back in the last trimester). This time I didn't lose any weight but at almost 29 weeks have only gained 4 lbs, which is great for me. LOL! I am nauseated regularly, so eating is quite the chore. Congrats congrats congrats!! ~Angela Woerner
