14 weeks, 5 days

Well, I officially announced at work!  And because I'm a huge cheeseball, this is how I did it:

Subject: I figured I'd bring in some Cinnamon Buns....

…since I’ve got a bun in the oven!

They are by the printer, help yourself!


Hahha - it was funny!  I have been planning this for like 2 years.  :)  DH and I had big plans with the cinnamon buns last week, but I was too sick to go to work, so we had to freeze them until today.  It was kind of fun, immediately a bunch of people converged on my desk.  I found out another lady (who shares the same last name - this is totally common for Chinese people, but coming from my unique Germanic last name, to me it is quite fun) is also pg (with her 3rd!).

In other work gossip, our layoff rumours have hit the big time - wall street journal is reporting it (not just tech blogs), and it is picked up on Reuters.  This isn't of itself news, but rumours that the RIF is going to hit our site hardest IS news.  That would be bad.  It will be in 3-10 days - I'll keep you posted!

And here I am finally not hating work so much!  I am guessing finding a job in my field in this City while pg is not going to be easy.  It sounds like fun to be off for my pregnancy, but...$$$ will get tight, I am guessing.


  1. Ack to layoffs!
    But LOVE the cinnamon buns email. (and I love cinnamon buns...)
