    So I guess I should conclude this journal with a birth announcement. The mini-Meepster was born November 9, 2015, weighing in at 8 lb 4 oz, after a 24 hour long unmedicated labor. She was very...

    Still hanging in there, and getting close to the impending birthday. I'm at almost 38 weeks right now, so I guess this baby could make her appearance any time. I'm hoping she stays put for another...

    Still here, though my journaling time is kinda reduced these days. The belly has reached monstrous proportions and the baby is wiggling all the time. I'm almost at 33 weeks now, so getting close to...

    Yeah, that's what we found. There's an ISR instructor not too far from where we live - the kidlet will be taking lessons as soon as she's 6 months.

    Yeah, I'm not really worried. My mother tells me that big babies run in the family - just about all of my relatives had a pretty high birthweight, and so did I, so I figure I'm just following family...

    Still hanging in there and still expanding. In fact, expanding at a rather precipitous rate - my doctor gave me a stern talking-to about how much weight I'm supposed to be gaining, and how I am way...

    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.

    My fiancee is actually the worst offender in the "I know pregnant women...

    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,...

    Thanks. Yeah, it does help to talk about it. Though I fully realize that there's nothing important that even needs mentioning, let alone talking about. It's literally a normal variation - not any...

    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...

    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. :)

    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.
