“When are you going to post about your Condition” Tim keeps asking (we agreed I could post about it first). The word “Condition” has undertones of Victorian English euphemisms to me, even without the adjectives “delicate” or “interesting”. But I digress…
Our daughter is due in June, although saying “due” somehow neglects the fact that she reminds me several times a day that she’s already present. And active. The now-obvious bump (previously winter sweaters and jackets did disguise it, but not for the last few weeks) is lopsided, depending on which side she’s pushing. Waves of movement travel across the bump, particularly after I’ve had coffee or chocolate; our son finds this all fascinating.
In the FAQ category: We will not be publishing belly shots; the web does not need pictures of me to add to the large number of pregnant womens’ bumps that are already on display. I’ll take some time off starting probably in May for maternity leave, and Tim will be travelling a lot less than usual around that time. Precise details will depend on the baby, my health, and all those other unknown factors.
And no, we haven’t decided on the name yet. We still have time for that.
