I have no idea how I’m expected to keep it a secret for ONE SECOND LONGER that I am pregnant. Seriously. My god, I’m not a machine, people! I can’t possibly wait for weeks on end in order to hit some “it’s okay to tell” milestone because I have to tell you right this goddamned minute or I am going to EXPLODE.

There. Whew. That’s better.

You know what’s kind of funny, in a ‘boy, I sure am a dumbass’ kind of way? I was actually pregnant when I wrote this entry. I mean, barely pregnant, but still. Next up: hubris-filled entries about having—just now!—officially dropped the extra pounds, complete with photos to document my shrinkage! Ha ha haaaaa! Hot damn, my comedic timing knows no limits.

At least one internet calculator thingie predicts a Valentine’s Day due date, so that’s the general timeframe. I’m about seven weeks along. Morning sickness is a much bigger issue this time around, for some mysterious and sucktastic reason. My pants already feel too clingy in the waistline. Yesterday I crumbled graham crackers into a glass of milk and drank the resulting sludge, and it was SO. DAMN. GOOD.

(Yes, I realize the last two items may have something to do with one another.)

Anyway, that’s my news. I have been ridiculously excited to tell you.

Fist-pump number two! Whoooo! (Except I am alone this time. It loses some of its allure that way, don’t you think?)

*screams again with excitement* I’m so happy for you!

Aaaaaah! How exciting!! Feel so priveleged that you shared it with us! I know, the whole waiting for 12 weeks thing is ridiculously hard, and silly too I guess. I have to tell you – having 2 is NOT as hard as you think it is going to be, I promise! I am 4 months into it and it really is awesome.
CONGRATS!!!!!!!

And at least you have your hubris-filled weight loss entries and photos as a reminder that you can, in fact, do it when it comes time to lose the weight from baby #2.

Congratulations! And if you’re sicker this time than last, maybe it’s a girl. I was the opposite, ridiculously sick with my boys, and had an easier time with the girl. I suspected from the start that she was a girl, just because it was so different. I’m so happy for you all!

Oh my goodness… congratulations! I have to admit that I was a little suspicious when you talked about that pastry you ate in San Francisco. That’s pregnancy food if I’ve ever heard it!
Hope your morning sickness goes away soon.

Delurking to congratulate you and J.B. and Riley on his new brother/sister! Which would you like to have? I had my oldest boy in November and 17 months later…I had another boy. I thougth I would want a girl, and I did for awhile, but kept thinking of all those cute little boy clothes I still had…and now I KNOW I was always meant to be a Boy Mama…I never have learned to do my OWN hair, much less a little girl…

As soon as I saw this post title in my google reader notifier thing, I just knew! But, then the page took forever to load (dang Comcast and their wavering speed) and I was waiting in suspense for at least five seconds. Whew!

Congratulations!!!

Congrats! Your due date is one day after mine, so I’ll be looking forward to reading your posts as an exercise in virtual commiseration!

As for the morning sickness, the only thing that seems to help keep it at bay is to keep eating. (Which is probably why I can only fit comfortably into yoga pants and sweat shorts at the moment.)
