    Our chromosome tests came back good! The baby seems to have the right number of chromosomes and the risk of any sort of trisomy is less than 1/10000. Oh, and it's a girl. :)

    I'm hoping I have a well-behaved kid. I was a well-behaved kid, so the genetics (at least on one side) should be on my side. I was the kind of semi-autistic bookworm who would be happy left alone...

    Yup. And the way that Americans are required to work these days, NO ONE has the energy to maintain any kind of normal relationship - especially if there are kids involved. It doesn't matter how...

    I can see how that might be traumatic. It's hard to be 3 years old. :)

    Really tired today, but I put in a really long workday, so it may be a normal kind of tired. It's been nonstop all day. ...

    I think that if the parent makes sure to really connect with their kid before he or she is a teenager, they'll be able to maintain contact with the kid while he/she is a teenager. I've seen this...

    I wonder what I'll do when this little creature is a teenager. I was a pretty easygoing teenager, myself, so maybe it'll take after me.

    I just really hope it gets easier. I can barely work, I can't get normal sleep, and life is not too fun right now.

    I'm trying to give my body what it needs - and interestingly enough, it's been asking for wheat products occasionally. I had a few bread cravings here and there, and at one occasion, my body clearly...

    Still terribly tired, but maybe I'm getting used to it, because I'm getting more done now. My productivity is back to near-normal, though I still conk out much earlier and sleep more.
