19 Weeks and Counting

I know this is a bit off-topic, but since I rant and rave about all sorts of things here that may or may not have anything to do with writing, why not share a little of my personal happiness?

Here I am at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on Sunday sporting a bump. It has sprung up out of nowhere. I’m 19 weeks, almost halfway, and quite convinced my belly may very well explode before all of this is over. Still, it’s hard to believe there’s a life-form in there. Speaking of which, it gave me its first solid kick yesterday. There have been many wiggles before this, but that was a kick I could see and feel. Also of note, the most wiggles were felt yesterday during both fiction panels. Coincidence? I think not!

And yes, I know I’m squinting. It was sunny.

Edited to add: I accidentally deleted this whole post and had to rewrite it from memory. Blah!

  1. I noticed this because I’m a friend of @Joi_the_Artist’s, went to the LATFOB with her. I’m @quettandil, though I don’t tweet nearly as much as her. Anyway, congratulations on your life-form bump!

    I wore a maternity shirt yesterday that reads, “Baby Loading… Please wait,” but sadly I didn’t get any comments on it. Probably because I’m only 10 weeks and not really showing yet. I just couldn’t resist wearing such a shirt to a nerd panel, swimming in it and silly looking or not. 🙂

    • Hello! Nice to hear from you. 🙂 Congrats to you on your life-form, too! I don’t think I saw your shirt, but that sounds adorable and hilarious. I love nerd shirts. Was Joi wearing the She Blinded Me with Library Science shirt? I think I saw her tweet it, but I wasn’t sure if it was her. If so, I *did* see her. Small world, isn’t it? All of my geeky shirts are much too short now and expose my belly lol It’s not the best look haha

      In any case, great to hear from you. Sorry I didn’t see you, but yay for making connections after the fact! LATFOB was awesome. Can’t wait to go again next year.
