Yes, I'm posting at dreamwidth. I plan to keep posting at LJ as a crosspost, but I really don't feel like my journal being in the middle of Russian political fu. ::shrug:: 'Course, I let the "paid" portion of the experience lapse ages ago, anyway, so... At this point I'm still reading both and don't really care where you read/comment/etc, so ::shrug:: guess it's kind of a moot point.

So... life... let's see...

Pregnancy Yep, still pregnant, now with even fewer symptoms. Which, honestly, is a bit disconcerting, as at this point I could really just be pudgy - if I hadn't seen the ultrasound I'd be in some serious disbelief. Am really wishing we'd get to the kicking stage. (And I know I'll regret saying that, but for right now...)

House The kitchen is *basically* done (there's a little tile-grout cleanup that needs to happen where we had to regrout a few spots, and there are a few spots that the trim needs a bit of wood putty and paint in the nail holes, and of course there are the curtains, but yeah. Which of course means we're starting on a new project...
Attic conversion! Our house has 3 bedrooms right now, a master on the first floor and 2 upstairs. We use the master as my sewing/craft room, along with some bookcases etc, and (previously) Nick's computer desk (he got rid of the desktop, so it's just a desk / filing area for bills and stuff now). Which means we sleep upstairs in one of the smaller bedrooms - which is really too small for our kingsize bed if one REALLY wants to be honest and the 3rd is the guest room. Needless to say, this is getting shuffled soon. I'd still like to have a guest room - and/or if Podling ever has a sibling it'll need a bedroom - which leads us to start pondering the walk-in attic. It's over the master bedroom, so it's much larger than you would think (we're thinking the finished size will be something like 8.5 x 16 of useable space, with some storage nooks on the edges). And the joists are already built to support it, so the actual work will be significantly easier than the kitchen. (Really, ANYTHING is easier than the kitchen, we definitely jumped in the deep end there.) Maybe we'll even be more prompt about posting pictures. Once that's done, the guest room (with a new floor) gets to be the nursery, and our current room gets to be the guest room. Yay. (Might even move some of the bookcases up. It'll make the sewing room a bit more open.)

Coronation was lovely, and I'm really looking forward to the Baronial Work Day at the end of the month. (It'll be fun. No, really, painting the list fence is fun! ::end Tom Sawyer Mode::) But really I think I'm focusing on Pennsic right now - there are LOTS of people going, we MIGHT even hit the 40 for 40 target (WINDMASTERS NEEDS YOU! ::end recruiting mode::), and I had (err, stole) the Best Idea Ever for the Baroness's tea.

How far along are you in your pregnancy? And don't worry, once the kicking starts, it won't stop. It's funny. Especially the first time that the baby moves. :-)

13 weeks tomorrow. It's just that I've been lucky and had basically no morning sickness, thus the "now with even fewer symptoms" comment. I'm sort of already showing (yay for being short with no waist anyway), but...

Mine didn't really started kicking until about the 4th month, so it will still be a couple of weeks (or three) for you. :-)

Yeah, all my books are saying it might not be till 18 or 20 for a first timer. :( I can hope though.

I always loved the kicking part. Not always the stretching and pushing his butt up into my ribs part. But it’s almost lonely when they’re born and they stop moving around inside of you.

Heh, until they start crying I suppose? ;->

Really I just want... something... to prove it's there and fine. Also, I want to hurry up and get to May 9 so I can (hopefully) find out what it is, as calling a person "it" bothers me.

I'm not known for my patience...

Heh. Once they're born, you're still never alone. :-) But it's different!

Then once it starts moving, and it *stops*, that's even worse, because you don't know if it's sleeping, you're just used to it, or if everything you read in What to Know... is actually happening to you.

I have been thinking of making the jump to dreamwidth, but now I see that I need a code and/or money? Do you happen to have one of these invite codes?

Did you decide which night the tea/beer bash is going to be? I want to make it by again this year.

Not sure yet; I don't know what day Atlantian court's going to be yet so I can't plan. I'll let you know as soon as I do.
