Exciting news! After our previous failed attempt, JTA and I have successfully made another proto-baby.
This one’s called Tiny, and has made it past the 12 week mark. Even better, it’s got arms and legs and a heartbeat and moves around all by itself. Progress!
My due date is New Year’s Eve, which is a bit freaky since that’s exactly a year since Jethrik turned out to be a quitter.
I’ve not managed to regain the giddy euphoria I felt last time round, but now that I’m out of the first trimester (also known as “the 8 week period when I felt sick all the time, was sick quite often, and couldn’t tell anyone” – frickin’ morning sickness), I’m feeling a sort of quiet excitement about this whole process. I know everyone’s doing babies at the moment, and it’s terribly old hat, but screw it – I’m joining the club 🙂
