Super-duper-HUGE announcement
So today is my birthday (that's not the announcement), and I keep forgetting that it is and then being reminded. I celebrated it on Wednesday, because too much is going on this weekend.

One thing that went on this weekend was that I got a positive pregnancy test*.

Yep. Baby. Baby is a thing that will be happening. I am pretty excited, needless to say.

This will affect my sewing business a bit, though. Assuming that it's a normal pregnancy, nothing goes wrong, I don't need to be put on bed rest, etc. I should be able to finish all my current commissions pretty much as scheduled. The baby is due in March, which coincidentally is when my commission list is full until. Pregnancy won't keep me from sewing, so all those projects should get done. Any future projects that people commission going forward, though, will be happening during "brand new baby that I need to care for" time, and thus I will be unable to offer any guaranteed deadlines of any kind.

I will still be taking commissions, and I will still guarantee that they'll be finished eventually, but I have no idea how much actual work time I'll have and how much time the baby will suck up, and how long it'll be before I have the energy to do anything like my normal work load. I don't make promises I can't keep, so I just won't be promising any deadlines at all for some time.

Anyhow, this is still pretty awesome, even if it is going to turn my life upside down. But I figured I should let people know. :3

*A few of you may be confused because I have answered to "he" and "him" and so on. I am "genderqueer", to use the simplest possible term for it. I'm totally happy with people assuming I'm male, I feel very masculine most of the time. Right now, for obvious reasons, I'm feeling more like a woman than usual. :D But male pronouns are still fine. Or female. Either way, really, I don't mind.

That's wonderful!

Happy Birthday!

But most of all, congrats on the wee one :)


I'm so happy for you! Keep us updated. I will have to do something geeky for the little one. I have ideas...


Happy Birthday!! What an awesome birthday surprise! Congrats on the news! I hope you have a smooth and easy pregnancy!


I was just thinking of you today in church, too. A new couple and their three-year-old has just moved into the ward, and from the audience, since she gave a talk, she looks very much like you. Her name is Lindsey (but spelling IDK)and they love books just as much as you and I and our husbands. :D

AHHHH, I'm so excited!! You and baby-- woohooooo!
