I didn't have time to post on the "IN LABOR!" thread after my water broke.  My baby girl arrived 3/2/13, 21 inches, 7 lb 10 oz
requested!
  one day away from 37 weeks
Renee is at the top of our list, as my husband's grandfather's name is Rene.   HOWEVER:  to accent or not to accent?  I feel like Renee is common enough that people know how to pronounce it even without the accent mark on the second of three Es, but I don't want to saddle my child with an accent that may cause havoc in databases that can't handle special fonts.  I'm a fan of diacritical marks in general.
22 weeks!
bit of an update:  just had my 20 week US and the tech showed a marginal placenta previa.  nothing to get hyped up about, as the placenta may not be that close to the cervix later on in my pregnancy.  another US at 32 weeks to find out.     in any case, while reading up on placenta previa, I found that cervical exams are rarely done with placenta previa bc the gentlest touch can cause painless, bright red bleeding.  that sounded familiar, and I wonder if that could...

I'm seventeen...
snapped a pic before my run yesterday, so this would be 13 weeks and 5 days.  I can tell I'm thicker, but I don't think it will be obvious to anyone else for a long time.  I'm eating constantly to make sure I have enough fuel for running AND assembling a person, always looking for the most calorie dense food options that aren't complete junk.  I love peanut butter, but the school where I teach is a nut-free school.  I'm stocking my office with popcorn, fig newtons,...
