Exploring Motherhood

If any readers are still visiting here after my nearly three month hiatus, let me thank you for your persistance. I'm not sure I would have stuck with an boring blog like this for so long.

I do have a good excuse though. Since the middle of December I've been lost in the fog of first trimester pregnancy. For those of you who haven't experienced this, imagine showing up absolutely drunk for every single thing you do. Seriously.

The little hormone game is a riot. For instance, on any normal day I keep between 3 and 7 appointments and then do follow up on all of them. During first trimester, I missed most of the appointments and then went home at 3pm to nap, and I couldn't even muster the energy to worry about it.

Luckily this week lucidity has again returned, so I can pick up where the hormone-addled me left off. What a slacker.

According to Google, this is what the baby's supposed to look like by this time. Hopefully in real life it's not so plasticky-looking.

I do have to state for the record that this is all a little strange...
