a wee darling



I have been wanting to make this post for a very long time but I don't like to tell people early on as I don't like to jinx things and am also advancing in maternal age according to the medical world.
I am almost 20 weeks pregnant and expecting a wee darling this February. We are all very excited.
This pregnancy was planned and happened quickly. I had a much rougher time with this one but, am now starting to feel better... finally. I forget how exhausting it is to grow a baby. I am convinced this baby is a hyper one as I felt movement at 11 weeks and was able to see my belly bouncing up and down.
So far, we have held off on finding out the gender but, I may cave this Wednesday. We will see if my curiosity gets the better of me.
Now, in addition to this we have also been house hunting as we need to make room for the new addition to our family and we have recently listed our condo on the market which we are attempting to sell ourselves. House hunting has been exhausting and a bit depressing. It feels strange to be leaving the city I have lived in for 12 years and moving out to the suburbs but, I don't see any affordable alternative for us and we will still stay close to NYC. To leave has been a very tough decision for us and one that is filled with emotion. I must say though that the prospect of having my very own craft room is terribly exciting for me. I think if we had 100K more we would have had our house by now or even able able to stay here possibly. Isn't it always that way? I wouldn't be opposed to moving further away if it were not for the terrible commute. We are crossing our fingers that we will find something soon as we would like to be settled in a new home by November or December the latest.
The past few months have been a whirlwind and so I have sadly been out of touch with many of my friends. I hope to remedy this soon.
Hi friends....I miss you dearly...

Congratulations! That truly is exciting news! I'm pregnant as well, but am only at 15 weeks and haven't shared it on my blog yet. I'm 37, so I'm a bit nervous about telling everyone until I see a sono. So far, we've only heard a heartbeat.
Best wishes for a smooth pregnancy and finding a new place to live.

Congratulations! I'm so glad to hear you're feeling better. You know what I say, it might be folk wisdom, but everyone who has had a rougher time the second time around that I know of has had a girl. So I'm thinking you've got a baby girl in the oven, how exciting! It's exciting whichever sex the baby turns out to be, but the realm of clothing choices for girls is a whole lot wider than poor little boys. Glad to hear you and the baby to be are well:)

oh my goodness, that's so wonderful, congrats, good luck, so many decisions, I understand! ps. I know you're really busy, but have you ever seen a pattern similar to the "Muddled Mint Hat" from anthropologie? It looks like something you would make, I got this great yarn and I'm all inspired. Can you believe the price of this thing!?!?

I'm so excited for you! We are trying -- in that not really trying, but not not trying sort of way -- and I have to say, I'm getting a bit nervous. It will be wonderful to hear about how you handle this pregnancy! At least I'll have some idea of what to expect if I ever become pregnant! Congratulations! And good luck on the house hunting!
