good news

First, I want to thank all of you for your support and kind words (about this pregnancy and more generally about what I post here).

It's funny. I never really wanted to be a blogger, but I thought it would be "good for me," so almost a year ago, I started this blog. Because of it, I've discovered such a wonderful community of writers and readers and mothers, pondering the same issues, raising important and often difficult questions. I feel less alone in my endeavors as a parent and teacher and writer. So it indeed has been good for me, but I also really love it. Thank you for that.

And I have good news about the pregnancy: my blood pressure is still great and there is no protein in my urine. I had a non-stress test yesterday and Baby seems just fine. My doctor agreed that I should come in every week now, and this is also a huge relief. I feel I can worry a little less if I know they are keeping a close eye on me. So, I'm going to do as you suggest: worry then let it go, and begin practicing a little denial (or positive thinking): this will be a full-term baby)!

Kate,

A really interesting blog here—jogging memories of many things, including my own son's preference for his father. Which does right itself after a while, I swear. It can just take time.

Good luck to you and here's to your health,

Beth Kephart
