Hi all,

I've been gone from the boards forever, mostly just bring too busy and overwhelmed to focus too much on my pregnancy (such a different feeling this second time around!). But I'm turning...

Hi all,
 
I've been lying low on these forums since my BFP for this pregnancy, both out of superstitious anxiety and because of a very busy first trimester. Posting here seemed like a low-stakes...

I miss you all! We made it home from CA, but then launched immediately into the intense start of the semester AND the Jewish holidays. Add some first trimester ickiness, and it's been a lot.

Posting on my phone from vacation, just to send Jenny some love. This is so not fair, especially after the roller coaster cycle you had to endure. I hope this break is restorative. 2014 isn't so far...
