Bun in the Oven

The base of my pun for my blog title is actively true.  There is a bun in the oven!  I'm 16 weeks pregnant.  The baby is due May 18th.

It has slowed down my writing clip.  NaNo became a 5,000 word month rather than a 50,000 word one.  But, it also gives me some motivation to wrap up my novel before the kid shows up.  Last weekend was the first time that I had the mental energy to write since early October.  It's been tough.

My WiP is about 30,000 words done.  My goal is to have it 100% complete before the baby comes.  I'm a slow first drafter, which is very blocky and the revisions is where I really start to add words at a decent clip.  So, I'm feeling pretty good about that goal.

I'm not sure how much I'll be able to write with a newborn. 

For any of you writing Moms out there, how long after giving birth until you were back to a writing habit?
