june 27th
girl!
name picked, not telling
1st baby, 2nd pregnancy
i can't focus on anything besides this baby--work, doctoral work, etc. all seem insignificant right now. the students at my school are super sweet to me, though. they all want to touch my belly (i'm cool with that). i answer probably a dozen pregnancy questions a day. i think it's good for them to understand the process, esp the girls b/c we have a high teen pregnancy rate at our school.
i feel like the princess at my school. the other day this big, very thug-y boy saw me coming down the crowded hall and yelled, "get the f&*^ outta the way! lady with baby coming!" and all the students in the hallway parted down the middle to let me through. it was truly biblical! i was like, "thanks, honey. watch your mouth--my baby can hear you now!" he was shocked at that
i'm really loving being pregnant. in nyc, everyone feels they have the right to talk to you suddenly which i find 90% endearing and 10% annoying

My stuff:


- Ann (if that wasn't too obvious - should think about changing it!)
- June 16th - hoping for the 17th (Father's Day)
- Boy
- very uncertain but Sean Thomas seems to be the leading candidate - but also contemplating Conor and Kieran
- Kathleen (4 yrs - she will be five a few weeks before this baby is born), Andrew (3 yrs, just) and Declan (14 months)
- I am an 'accountant' but have never practiced as one outside of the time to get my designation, I work full-time, my kiddos are in daycare in my building so we go out for lunch each week, I am married (for almost 7 yrs) and have 2 cats! We are planning a major reno to start this fall (delayed start) and everyone thinks we are crazy to reno and to have 4 kiddos. We drive a minivan! My husband loves to golf so this babe 'should' be born in the morning of the 17th so he can watch the closing round of the US Open. I am hoping for a homebirth (first one) but dh is still terrified!

* willo

* June 21 (or 23 is the 7 week ultrasound is more accurate than my charting)
* unknown (told DH he could find out this time, but baby kept it covered up!)
* I don't tell, and I also don't decide for sure until I've met the baby
* one son, who will be 3 1/2 when this baby is born

* I'm a Jew-by-choice--I converted in 2001. I love to read, especially histories and mysteries, and I've written 2/3 of a novel. I adore living history and play a late 13th century Spanish Jewish matron in the SCA. I have lived in the Northeast since I went to college in New York State in 1992, but I will always consider the Pacific NW "home."

We have a son who turns 4 on the first day of spring. No other pregnancies or children.

Anything else you want to tell about yourself?: I just turned 30 and am working on my second bachelor's degree and currently renovating a 98 year old bungalow.

I manage arts and culture programs for a local municipal government and am starting a small environmental education business.

*Charity
*June 26
*girl
*Still working on trying to find the perfect name--the combination that sounds best to us right now means we'd call her by her second name instead of the first, and I'm not sure we want to give her a lifetime of correcting people and explaining which name she uses--but it just doesn't sound as good the other way around. May have to try something completely different.
*first baby
*I'm from Nova Scotia, living in Boston (and looking forward to a trip home this weekend). DH and I have been married over 10 yrs and are delighted to be expecting our first. So glad this baby is due at the end of the academic year, just a few weeks after I finish teaching. After that--trying to find a way to be a SAHM.
