I just arrived back to NYC from a wonderful trip to see my family in Amelia Island, Florida when on a whim I decided to take a pregnancy test and to my surprise after several negative tests for three months it was POSTIVE! I was so thrilled to see "pregnant" instead of "not pregnant!" (I got the tests that read the results very clearly -- no faint pink/blue lines that you can't see!) I know you are supposed to wait to tell people but I could not wait to spread the word to family! John and I are THRILLED and I called my sister Elizabeth first.

Mommy and baby's first trip of many before the cut off date for travel. I am on an Amtrak train to Washington, DC for a very exciting event celebrating Wedgwood's 250th Anniversary and the train is so packed with people that I have to ride backwards. Not helping my nausea and yet all I can think is I need MORE candy! I have the worst morning sickness, just as I did with my son for the first three months of pregnancy, but I didn't have these crazy candy cravings. I have always been a healthy eater and am trying to stay one while pregnant. However, candy is the only thing that helps my stomach! Stephen is my most wonderful, supportive friend and he has packed our bags with Dots, ginger snaps, ginger chews (ginger is supposed to help with nausea), and Preggie Pop Drops. I have decided with all these candy cravings that it must mean I am having a very sweet little girl!

We are on Amtrak again heading to Philadelphia for a luncheon and lecture series for Wedgwood Day at the Philadelphia Club with Lord and Lady Wedgwood. I am starting to feel much better and had enough time to see the Princess Diana exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum prior to the event, which was amazing! My cravings have moved to HOT TAMALES! I can't get enough of them! Does this mean the baby is going to be sweet and sassy? On another note, it's incredible how some people don't know how to talk to a pregnant woman. Stephen can't stop telling me how huge my boobs are!

Celebrating Thanksgiving in NYC and the wonderful news after tests that our baby is healthy and that we are having a GIRL! We are so excited and have so much to be thankful for! When I told my mom she started crying –- I would have been happy with a healthy boy or girl, but to have one of each is perfect! But I have to admit, I am very excited about the clothes with this one.

Tonight's one of my company's biggest and most important events, and I am right in the thick of it, and I feel amazing! I can't wait celebrate the Waterford Ball descending down in Times Square to celebrate the New Year in NYC and all the exciting opportunities to come. The event and the press coverage for Waterford were amazing after a lot of coordinating personally and professionally, and we rang in the NEW YEAR with a BLAST! 2010 here we come!
