Yes, I Am Having a Baby

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011 • 3 Comments on Yes, I Am Having a Baby

I’m discovering there are people who still don’t know I’m pregnant. I’m not conceited enough to think that everyone should be up-to-date on my current status, but I figure between Facebook, blog and email that everyone who knows me knows I’m getting fatter by the hour. But no, I got a note from someone this morning who didn’t know I was pregnant. The congratulations and good wishes never get old, so it was nice to spend a few minutes talking baby and pregnancy when my usual talk these days is book, book, toddler, food, book, book, toddler, food. (I’m hungry all the time, it seems.)

So yes, for those who may have missed it in all the book promotions and calls for submissions, I am having another baby.  I’m almost 23 weeks pregnant and things are going along swimmingly, for the most part. Patrick has been rocking our world for 17 months tomorrow and in 4 months, his baby brother will be joining the band. I still have days when I can’t wrap my mind around the idea of having two babies. Despite the fact that I will refer to him here as a toddler, Patrick is still a baby as far as I’m concerned. Even if he looks like a little boy.


The family tradition of feeding the raccoons continues! (Patrick thinks they’re cats. He meows at them.)

    I love that the raccoon is in the background!  Hahaha! 

    It hasn’t seemed to have gotten old to me to bestow best wishes either, so while I was indeed aware that you were pregnant, here’s another round of them!  (Of course, I am always wishing you the best whether I articulate it or not.)  Congratulations again!  wink  And I’m so glad it’s going well.

    Ah, that’s what they WANT him to think. Their plan is coming along nicely. My sister in law is having her second baby in July, and I was at her house this weekend, while she ate biscuits, as she’d just failed her glucose challenge test and knew they were going to tell her to stop on her visit next week smile

    She said she had hunger like never before on this pregnancy. Her husband would wake up to find her sitting in bed, eating. I think it must be because you expend so much more energy looking after the first one – you don’t get the same time to sleep etc.
