New Ringlein - Coming in April

Well, it's time again that I've neglected a whole month of blog posting. But with good reason this time. We're expecting a new arrival due at the end of April. So, for those of you that have been through that first trimester before, you know how exhausting it is and how nauseous you can feel a lot of the time. I'm hoping it passes in the next couple of weeks. We're so excited that we were able to conceive naturally this time, not to mention it's a thrilling savings over IVF. Andrew and his mom have nicknamed our little fetus "Cheap, Cheap." Not sure if that's much better over the nickname Hope had for a while in utero, which was, "Goldfinger." My CNM says with second (and later) pregnancies that "you'll get bigger faster, and you'll be more tired" [because you already have someone taxing your engery]. And, so far, she's right. So, needless to say, I've been taking a lot of naps, putting on a lot of Blue's Clues in the background, and sending Andrew to make me toast in the middle of the night. He's super supportive and caters to most of my whims. Here's a pic of Hope in her "Big Sister" t-shirt I got to announce our positive test result to Andrew and my parents. Poor Hope has no idea how much her world is going to change.
