    Thanks, Urban Forager! :) We are very happy. We've put a giant rainbow flag in our front window, and it's going to stay there until the 4th - at which point, it'll be replaced by an American flag,...

    Getting really exhausted again. I don't know where this second-trimester energy is that I was supposed to have. I feel tired, and maybe a bit depressed.

    But all that aside, I am terribly happy...

    Yeah, I know. I think I'd be way too paranoid to not test at all - I'd rather know than not know - but there are downsides.

    Yeah, I think I'd feel better about things if I didn't know. Though at my age, I'm too paranoid to leave the fetus unwatched. :) Too many things to go wrong.

    In any case, aside from that thing,...

    So, we just had the doctor's appointment. Apparently, the baby has something called a choroid plexus cyst in her brain, and I have a fibroid in my uterus. Neither of those things are a cause for...

    I'm heading on a much-needed vacation tomorrow with my best friend. Alas, the fiancee can't make it, as she has an urgent case to work on. The first trimester has been absolute hell and I need a...

    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. :)

    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.
