Yesterday was the start of the spring semester. As I am now at 20 weeks, and the semester is 16 weeks long, it will be almost exactly the length of time between now and full term. Since 20 weeks is a long time, I’m glad to have many papers to grade, papers to write, and mountains of emails to read in addition to obsessing about baby things.
I spent a lot of time agonizing about whether to tell my students about my condition, but I decided (upon consultation with many trusted friends) to just show up and teach. Eventually, they will figure it out, right? For now, flowy knits, stretchy pants/skirts and unstructured pieces help. I tried to wear my dress pants which were always too big to wear without a belt yesterday, but there was too much pocket pulling and muffin-topping, so stretchy skirt won. I was too rushed to get in a pic but I’ll try to recreate it soon.
In the meantime, I miss Sweden and my friends, so here’s some more pics!
