Thankfully.  I managed to say nothing while we were visiting my family, though it wasn’t easy.  Particularly since I’ve got a belly.  It’s noticeable.  If you didn’t know that I am pregnant, you probably wouldn’t have known—I just look kind of puffy—but my pants are getting tight.  Urgh.  I really, desperately want to make it through this trimester without maternity clothes.  They’re such an obvious announcement and I’m nowhere near comfortable with that yet.  We’re going to meet with a homebirth midwife tomorrow night and I’m hoping she’ll take a listen to the heartbeat so that J can hear it since he didn’t get to come to the appt last week.  That would be another benefit of seeing her, that J could come to the appts with me. 

Krista, I wish I had seen your comment earlier—what a good idea that would have been!  I did tell my department chair, who was thrilled for us and agreed not to say anything yet.  She also said that we’d just take my class off the project…which is too bad, because I would really have liked a free iP.ad 😉  I’m glad I don’t have everyone knowing yet.

Feeling pretty good so far, so nothing to update.  I get freaked out because I really don’t have any symptoms anymore but I’m taking the growing stomach as a good sign.

8w4d today.
