No, it's not a baby blog, but...

I do have some news.

Yes, I'm pregnant! (Whew, saying that out loud is still a little jarring!)

But, yes. There you have it- B and I are expecting an addition to our little family! I'm just a tad past 12 weeks now, and the baby is due next June. I'm sure the next 6 months will seem slow and fast at the same time! As far as the early stages of pregnancies go, I'm happy to report that I think I've had it pretty easy thus far (knock on wood...always gotta knock on wood). I haven't had any morning sickness or food aversions to speak of, so I really can't complain. I've been a little achy and my allergies are killing me (but that's just normal for me) and I've been feeling damn exhausted, but other than that, good. I'm really looking forward to that 2nd trimester burst of energy I keep hearing about!

Anyway, I just wanted to share the happy news with you guys, since I have also had to share some not-so-happy news in the past. But lest you think this will become an all-baby, all-the-time blog, not to worry! I have some knitty FOs to share, which I will post soon. I just wanted to spill the beans about...well, Bean (the baby's temporary nickname). :) It's been hard to keep it a secret, people!

While we're still on the baby topic, however, I do want to thank everyone for their comments in support of Dis. What she's going through is not easy, but she is handling it incredibly well- with all the strength and positivity and grace one would hope to have in a mom. Her little one is a lucky guy!

Congratulations! That's wonderful that you haven't experienced any 1st trimester sickness. I was nauseated from week 7 to 11. By week 12 it was smoother sailing though.
