I'm having some trouble hitting the blood sugar numbers, and it makes me a tiny bit anxious, but the diabetes nurse said that even when you test on your own machine twice within two minutes, you'll see slightly different numbers, and as long as they're within 10% of each other, that's just about what we're getting.  What that tells me is that there's a significant margin of error, and if I'm supposed to be at 7.8 and I'm at 8.1 I'm not doing serious damage.  I guess I'll find out when Moira reviews my progress on Thursday.

I go to the OB/GYN for the first time on Wednesday afternoon!  I asked if they were going to do an ultrasound, because I thought it was a little early for that, and indeed that's not the plan.  They're going to listen for the heartbeat.  Wow.  That will be amazing.  I'm sorry Rick won't be there for that - I should try and see if they can schedule something for later in the day so he might be able to take off from work a little early and go to the next one with me.  Another thought I had about that is - oh man, I hope it's just one heartbeat.  What if it's twins?  He said twins run in their family.  Gadi and Jenna will be over the moon, I mean everyone will be thrilled, but then we'll have two sets of twins, and the Arino name will continue strongly as well.  I don't even want to go down that road, though of course I've already thought "well, I'm not sure if the room we want to use for the kid's room will work; we'll have to entirely re-do things."  Oy.  This is called "borrowing trouble" and if we do have twins, we'll work out the house stuff.  It's pretty damn awesome to be having any children, and two will be more than twice the EVERYTHING.  But: let's just not start that yet, shall we?  Sheesh, woman, calm down.

We'll be traveling to NYC for Eliana's bat mitzvah in a few weeks, and I REALLY want to tell the family on that Sunday so I can be with not just the nuclear family but Shirley and Lenny as well.  It'll be after Eliana's big day, so that shouldn't be a problem.  We intend to tell Carmen before that - I'd like to tell her Wednesday night after the OB/GYN appt but Rick wants to wait on setting up that conversation until he hears whatever there is to hear from that meeting.  Okay, I can respect that.  We have to tell her soon, though, because she wants to take us on a trip to Spain, and the timing of that will be greatly affected by this pregnancy and the birth of our child.  }:->  Our child.  Oh lord.

I've wanted to tell the rabbi, Ilan, Tahl, Meg, and work - work needs to know sooner than later because of all the appointments I'll be setting up.  At the very least, I'd tell Christy... because she'll have to start thinking about hiring a mat leave person for me.  Oy indeed!  Poor Christy, another search.
