When are you due??
SOON! June 7th. Though maybe sooner if my blood pressure goes up Are you choosing to find out the sex or have a surprise??
a surprise! many are telling me its a girl I think because its funny for folks to imagine me with a pink-tutu-loving girl (I'm *really* tomboyish and not girly at all) and that I'm a little afraid of having one
The comments have started to get annoying such that I worry if I do have one all my friends/coworkers will buy pink things just to irritate me! But I think Ill do fine as a mom either way
and just hope the baby is healthy!
Is this your first child??
yesWhere are you from??
was born in NYC, but have been in MA now for a while (highschool in western MA, and then college at MIT and now living in Cambridge still)Do you have any hobbies??
yah, lots! I play a lot of sports (ultimate frisbee, ice hockey) and bike a lot, and run (ran the boston marathon in 2004) cross country ski (like the backcountry of VT best)
I also am a nerd, and play on the computer a fair amount
I also garden, and love to can my own tomato sauce and caponata, and I quilt and knit.If you could pick one place to travel where would you go??
I really want to bike across nova scotia, to cape breton (wanted to do it before pregnancy, but never got the time to, the mr. and I do a lot of long bike-vacations so it would have been great to do!) And I also want to try xc skiing in either Iceland or Norway.Tell us something unique about yourself.
Even though I am >37wks and pretty big belly-wise, was able to play disc on Tuesday and run pretty damn fast
and am still biking 120-140miles per week. I struggled w/ an eating disorder several years ago and have a rather hate/love relationship w/ my body, but this pregnancy has definitely given me an appreciation for my body that I hope remains postpartum as well. I feel like there's no way I can ever hate how big/heavy it is given how its let me do so much this pregnancy!
