Or maybe this is more like saying that someone is expecting.
Tom Phillips will be starting school in the fall, pursuing a doctorate at the Plastic Electronics Doctoral Training Centre, and will be blogging about his experiences. Since I'm not expecting much polymer discussions until he actually starts his studies, this might be more like what I said above - we are expecting a live birth sometime soon - rather than a formal birth announcement. Nonetheless, we might be surprised to feel the baby kick sometime too.
(Poor Tom. All excited about starting his blog and I go around comparing him to a pregnant woman. Sorry - I will be nicer in the future.)
