Eight o'clock and all's well.

Fret not my friends, the spotting went away after a few days and Grommet is, as far as I know, safe and sound. In fact, Iím at eight weeks as of today. This means that she is now about the size of a raspberry or, to continue the legume theme, a lima bean. This is the week he goes from looking like an alien at 41 days, to looking like an actual mini-baby at around 48 days.

I donít think Iím ďshowingĒ yet but some of my pants are kind of borderline. I suppose that I shouldnít be surprised given that Iíve had to graze constantly Ė though Iíve tried to do so on fruit and yogurt for the most part between meals Ė and given that my uterus has now grown from the size of a large tangerine to the size of a grapefruit. I notice a small bit of displacement going on and my digestive tract definitely has some rocky days as itís getting pushed about and acted on by hormones, etc.

Iím starting to definitely get a bit tired during the days as well but that may be in part due to the fact that Iím still feeling a bit lost at my new job. Iím looking forward to becoming knowledgeable enough that I donít feel like a total imbecile.

Not much more to say right now. Naptime.

That means no swiping my stuff - text, images, etc. - without asking.

P.S. If you're emailing me, replace the [at] with @ in the "to" line. Oh, and if you put the word "journal" in the subject line it'll have a better chance of making it past my junk mail filters.
