Second Trimester

As we start our second trimester, I thought it was a good time for some more FAQ's:

Do you know what you're having?
We have the option to find out in three weeks, but I want to be surprised. Jon isn't convinced, but also hasn't had a strong enough opinion to this point to try to change my mind. At this point, I don't plan to find out until Baby makes the grand entrance into the world.

How are you feeling?
Mostly tired! I never did get sick (PTL!), but I still have days when I have a hard time eating. At least I haven't gained a ton of weight, despite my recently apparent tummy! My dizzy spells are subsiding (as long as I'm well-rested - I've had a few close calls at retreats and such where my sleep is much more limited than at home), but my newest ailment is sore hips. I don't know whose cruel idea of a practical joke it was to have to start sleeping on your side at the same time those hip-spreading hormones kick in full-time. It makes sleeping soundly a little more difficult. I've been experimenting with pillows between my knees and different positions, etc., so hopefully will have this figured out soon!

Do you have any names picked out?
We've talked only *very* briefly about names (with me really doing almost all of the talking), but haven't even remotely decided on anything. And we are going to keep names secret anyway! You'll just have to wait to meet Baby when Baby gets here. :-)

How was Jon's Hong Kong trip?
Jon laid some great foundations and made some really good contacts in Hong Kong. He has lots of people looking around for him, but doesn't have a "move-able" job just yet - we're still looking, though. He does have some contract programming work for a Hong Kong-based company that he'll be working on from home for a while, so we're thankful for work! At this point, we are waiting to see what happens next just as much as the rest of you!
