The Big Announcement

Dear Internet: I'm pregnant.

So, those of you that knew, you can now admit to knowing what you know. Those of you that didn't know, sorry, I had to get around to telling some people before I could let you know--and I might have tried to tell some of you IRL, but you cancelled plans on me to, you know, find a place to live since you need to vacate your SOLD home in a few weeks. You know who you are.

So, on with the news:
  • I'm 16 weeks along. For those of you that don't count your life in weeks, that means 4 months.
  • Estimated Due Date = November 2
  • D and I are both very excited.
  • Yes, we were trying. No, we didn't tell anyone that we were trying--so if you're surprised, you're not alone.
  • I found out the day that I started my new job.
  • I told D .23 seconds later by calling him into the bathroom to look at a pee stick by the sink. It was tres romantique.
  • I only had 1 or 2 days of nausea. That sounds wonderful and all, but I was constantly convinced that something was wrong because I was without symptoms. I did, however, get every virus that family, co-workers and strangers on the street had, so that was tons of fun.
  • We plan to find out the gender of the baby and to share that information. That appointment will most likely be in the middle of June.
  • We plan to share the name of the baby once we decide on it. We will not ask for input on the name and your opinion will not change our minds.
  • This weekend I started to look more pregnant and less lumpy.
  • I felt the first official movement last Wednesday night (5/14) but didn't believe it until I felt it again on Sunday (5/18). BP08 likes (or doesn't like?) Mexican food!
  • We are referring to the baby as BP08; you may or may not get where that comes from but it is of absolutely no importance so don't worry. :)
  • Not only have I been neglecting this dear blog because I have been busy with work and sick, but also because every time I had the opportunity to write, all I could think to write about was the baby that I had not yet told you about. I will work hard to continue updating and not become only a baby blog, but no promises and hey--aren't baby posts better than no posts at all?

Woohoo!!! Congratulations!!!

Can't wait for all baby, all the time. (I need to live vicariously.)

Yay! I am definitely looking more pregnant too. Today I am even wearing a maternity skirt.

I think I figured out what BP08, but I am going to pretend it means Birth Party 2008.

Congrats again!

Oh one more thing, does kicking feel kind of like a butterfly fluttering its wings? I felt that last night and was trying to figure out if it was kicking or not.

-r- I'm sure you know what it stands for, but I like Birth Party 08!

Fluttering yes...I also think it feels like popping--bubbles or pop corn.

l sass--I live vicariously through you all the time: NY, going back to school, etc. :)

Congratulations! There are so many pregnant bloggers! You're in good company. :)

-R- - Early on I remember wondering if everything was a kick. In a couple more months, there will be no question about it - You'll even SEE the kick! :)

Wow, wow, wow! Congratulations!

I am so happy for you and D. BP08 is one lucky baby.
