What was your reaction when you found out you were pregnant? Jessica: Relief. The day prior I was crying uncontrollably because I thought I was about to get my period again but turns out I was just VERY HORMONAL. I was such a mess, and Hannah left for the weekend for a funeral. I was relieved to find out I wasn't losing my mind, just pregnant.
Were you hoping for a specific gender? Hannah: Absolutely not. (Jessica secretly wanted a girl, and I not so secretly wanted a boy).
How was your experience being pregnant? What were some of the "perks" of it? Jessica: I had a pretty smooth pregnancy. I'm usually a neurotic, anxious person but the fatigue made it hard for me to worry about anything too much. Feeling and watching the baby move inside was endlessly magical and entertaining.
Did you have a difficult time picking out a name? Were there any names that your partner liked more than you did? Hannah: We had a name picked out for months-- two names, actually, because we didn't know the sex, and failed to come up with a completely gender-neutral option. The week before she was born, we threw it out and picked a name we'd never talked about before. It seemed completely right, though.
What is one trait that your child has that you definitely think came from you? Hannah: Ro is a Jessica clone, down to the Irish complexion and red hair. She also has her sense of rhythm and balance. As for me, we already share a willingness to eat anything and everything.
