wintersmith's Journal, 12 May 2010

So my weight is up about 3 pounds. I can say honestly that I care, but I'm not concerned, largely because of everything going on right now.

So, Friday my wife wanted to go celebrate. She had just tested positive for pregnancy and it seemed a worthy time. She's probably about 4 to 6 weeks along in the pregnancy now.

This meant that Mother's Day was a big celebration (and therefore big eating) day. Both of our mom's at separate events, so we had plenty to eat. I'm still coming down off the sugar high.

Now, of course, "expecting father" panic hasn't caught up with me yet. However, I'm afraid that I'm dedicating a lot of time to clearing out one of the bedrooms we'd been using as storage to convert it into a nursery. This means putting away a lot of hobbies that I just don't have time for, while still getting in all my exercise and working overtime (a project deadline is coming up. Amazing how everything comes together at once...).

We still haven't announced it generally, but I figure I can announce it early here. After the first OB/GYN appointment we'll have a lot more info and we'll let friends and distant family know. Of course, she's happy since she gets to eat more (she's tiny so more in this case is 1700 - 1800 kcals). Well, she's also happy since she's expecting. :)

Wish us luck!

It is our first. We're not even sure of the gender yet so I'm not rushing out to buy paint. :) However, home renovation is about to begin...

Oh! Thats a big project, especially while Prego! But it can be great fun too. I hope you still get to keep some of your cool toys/hobbies/manly stuff! My husband was, of course, in the garage! lol You left out the OTHER celebration of Tues. LOL @ your wife being allowed to eat more.
