The Madness Continues

I haven't been hungry since Tuesday morning. I swear we get fed every hour and so far my time sheets reflect 2.5 hours of actual work in the past 3 days. It's been a blast and looking at my schedule it doesn't appear to be slowing down for at least the next 2 weeks. I thought I'd have all kinds of time to read, do a few projects on my laptop (like finding a pretty blog template), watch movies, hang out with Steve, etc., but I get home, take off my makeup, and fall straight to sleep. I can barely even talk to JP at night. Today after work I'm driving home to Houston because a family friend is hosting a baby shower for me tomorrow. I'm really excited about seeing all my Texas friends and family- many of whom I haven't seen since our wedding! (And of course, opening all the cute baby gifts!)

As far as being pregnant and a summer associate- I think being pregnant is actually working in my favor. The expectations for me are so low! We had a bowling event the other day and I did okay (scored a 118- the last time I bowled I was in middle school), but everyone was so impressed! And every other female associate wears uncomfortable heels all day, but when I do it, it creates a buzz about how tough I am. It's great! Like I mentioned before- people either don't care and don't say anything about it or they get all excited and ask a bunch of questions and share their new mommy/daddy experiences. Both responses are great and I definitely don't think that anyone thinks less of me or my legal abilities because of "condition".

And a brief pregnancy update: he's now squirming around like Crazy. After being a very lazy baby, the little guy has decided to take up dancing, swimming, and possibly gymnastics. My stomach is constantly moving around and it's so fun. He doesn't really "kick", it's just more of a squirming around. I imagine things are getting a bit crowded in there. I'm now in week 31, so he doesn't have too far to go!


  1. I'm glad that everything is going great so far!

  2. 31 weeks, wow! You're almost there! I can't wait to hear about the baby.
