We're going to be parents!

Well, we have been waiting to make it public, but I think everyone pretty much knows by now, Will and I are going to be having a baby next May!! :-) The official due date is May 18th, we'll see how close we get to that. Needless to say we are ridiculously excited, and we can't wait! In the closer future, I am looking forward to having a belly (instead of just looking pudgy), feeling the baby move, finding out the sex etc. Come Christmas, I'm hoping we'll have gotten to all 3.

I am 12 weeks along as of now, and I have been very lucky to have had a pretty easy pregnancy so far. I am tired as hell right now, despite falling asleep at 9 on the couch last night and taking a nap this morning, but that is probably because of the crazy dreams that kept waking me up last night. I've heard vivid dreams are a side effect of pregnancy, let's hope they're not all as crazy as last night! But this being week 12, I'm hoping I follow the typical timeline and get my energy back in the next week or two. At the very least now that I'm in the second trimester I can get maternal massages to help with my generalized aching :-)

So that's pretty much what we've been up to recently, and that's why I haven't really been posting much since Hawaii (which is where this situation began) because I've become a typical pregnant woman with babies on the brain, so if I didn't want to mention babies there wasn't much else to talk about in a blog.

Anyway, Will and I will be going to dinner at my parents' house tonight, my second cousin from Arizona (who is now working in DC) is coming up for dinner, and she's exactly my age so it'll be neat to see her again. Sunday my friend Michelle is coming up from Virginia to visit, and I'm looking forward to that. I think we'll check out the new Carroll Creek Promenade downtown and get some lunch etc. This is the weekend for visiting with people I haven't seen in awhile!

I'll post more later, hopefully now that our secret is out I will be updating more often.
