Many of you know that I've been trying to get pregnant forEVER (like, for years) and had a miscarriage a few years ago, which was pretty devastating. I'd been having fertility treatments and such, but then with big changes with work, moving to a new house, and other life stressors, we decided to hold off on trying for a while. Not using birth control, but not actively trying. Well, naturally, that's when I got pregnant!
I'm due July 7, 2009, so I'm officially done with my first trimester. I'm breathing a sigh of relief to get past that milestone, because it means the risk of miscarriage is much lower.
Unfortunately, pregnancy is kicking my ASS. I am tired all the time, my depression is back in full force, and until very recently I've had awful morning sickness - now replaced by awful heartburn. Urgh. Still, gift horse, mouth, so I'm trying to hang with it.
Anywho, I am sorry I haven't been around much lately, and with everything going on I probably won't be around much in the near future. I haven't written a word of fic, and my mind has just been in a totally different space lately. Still, I'm hoping that one day the fic muse comes back around.
I'd be curious for any f-listers who have kids, how you handle the balance of work/family/lj. I can't even imagine how I'm going to manage two of the three, much less all three!
Hope you're all doing well. I think of you guys often!
