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.

I was so moved to tears the last time you had a Great Expectation and I have obsessively checked your “preggo” tab just to marvel at the miracle o’ life since Sucktopus I was born. This time, I’m truckin’ right along with you on the pregbus, and somehow your confessions on cravings lend so much solidarity to this here human growth experiment we’re both undergoing. Congrats to you and JB, and also to Big Brother Riley.

Yippee! I remember when you wrote that having Riley made you so happy, you felt your heart would burst into a million pink balloons … so wonderful. Perhaps those balloons might really be PINK this time!

Excellent news. I found the morning sickness much worse the second time around (sorry). And, you show MUCH SOONER. Like, at 10 wks you’ll feel 6 months pregnant. At least, I did.

Congratulations! I’m very excited for you! Can’t wait to hear about all of the pregnancy and birthing drama, as well as the sibling rivalry business. Hope your morning sickness gets better. I was all about fresh fruit smoothies when I was pregnant. Good luck with that nasty nausea.
