Third time's the charm, right?
We found out we were pregnant. Having had 2 miscarriages now, I was very wary about the whole idea of being pregnant again. I procrastinated getting an appointment setup with the OBGYN. Finally, in the last week of the first trimester, did the appointment and HOLY MOLY! There was a real baby in there - big, and with a heart beat. I started crying... ... no actually, sobbing.
I'm happy. It's really happening! My husband and I have created a bridge of our genes, chromosomes, hearts, and souls in creating this baby. It's a miracle... Babies are a miracle.
I'm terrified. There's so much going on all at once. All together - at the same time. I'm thinking about moving, a new city, a baby in progress due in less than 6 months, my husband and marriage, my mother and brother, my team, fundraising, our partners, ... it's just so much.
I've got a startup. I've got a team. We need to raise more money. How in the world is this going to work? And it turns out... I'm moving to San Francisco in exactly 1 week (we just got accepted and a nice investment from 500 Startups). What about my dog, Mochi? What about my husband? What about this new life forming inside of me? ... How's this all going to work out? This startup life is a marathon, a grind.... and uphill battle.... and 1 year in, the hill is getting very steep and my load has just tripled in size.
What am I doing about it?
Our world is about to get way bigger.
T-7 days til we fly to San Francisco.... anxious, excited, terrified, ...
