The slacker resurfaces

Been forever since I posted. Work is busy (which is a good thing in this kind of economy) and it seems like every night and weekend there is something going on. I am starting to feel a tad overextended, and fear for what it will be like when the Kraken is old enough to have things like soccer games and play practice.

In other news, with any luck around May 17th we'll be delivering the Kraken's younger sibling! That may seem like optimism in the extreme after the events of the past two years, and maybe it is, but I can't bring myself to spend 9 months freaking out about it. I was able to start taking my heparin shots the minute we found out we were pregnant, and as of last Friday an ultrasound shows a real live baby, with a heartbeat and everything. Haven't left the ultrasound clinic without a caveat of some kind (heartbeat too slow, baby too small, twins sharing a placenta, no baby developed) since the Kraken joined the Gorgon household, so I am encouraged. Plus, I feel like someone ran over me with a car, which has just GOT to be a good sign.

Wish me luck. I can't promise to post much until I get out of the first trimester and feel like a human again, but hopefully I'll be back in a few weeks with a good update.
