Theoretically speaking, if JB said to me the other day, “Something smells funny in here . . . or actually, I guess it’s just you” then totally denied that there was anything rude about that statement (“What? You smell like whatever you’re cooking! What?”), would that make it okay for me to send him an instant message yesterday that read:

>OMG THE DR SAW 2 HEARTBEATS DURING THE ULTRASOUND

. . . or would that have been rude?

No, not rude. Fiendishly deserving would be an IM like:

” We’ll need 3 names”

I don’t see anything wrong with sending him that.

Well, technically he or she probably did hear two heartbeats – so you weren’t lying. Your and the baby’s. That’s two. It’s just how you chose to spin that information that JB might mind… and he deserved it.

No that would have been the funniest GD thing I ever heard. You should try and film his face when he recieves the message. Maybe get an accomplice or something. Of course, now he knows, so you have to think of something new, but I am all for practical jokery and revenge. And you’ve got nine minus however many months you said before (sorry, I wasn’t paying attention) to come up with something really sweet to freak him out with.

However in his defense, some food does leave a funk about the person cooking. Garlic for example. Also popcorn. He sort of has a point. I mean, did you smell funny? I’m just saying, maybe you did. It happens.

I love it! Of course I didn’t see his remark as rude. It’s something I would say. ;-) Or I would have before I was trained.

Oh, I had to smile at this one. My husband is attending my 18-week ultrasound with me (tomorrow morning! Gack!), so I can’t use that line on him, but the look on his face would be priceless.

Not so much okay, but more the funniest thing I’ve ever heard. And may I steal this brilliance when/if I get pregnant?

Please do!
That level of evil genius should not be bottled up for too long.

totally acceptable!!! and downright necessary!!! be careful tho, they have ways of reciprocating…when we were in the obgyn office for one or the other of my prenatal visits my hubbie decided to grab the light wand thing attached to the wall and start ordering a big mac with large fries, coke and a mcflurry (embarrassing in front of your doctor…yes!!!)

2 heartbeats?!? Holy shit!! Are you freaking out???

Marie Green

Here’s what I have to say about that: I called my parents and told them I was pregnant with twin on April Fools Day. Then, about 2 years later I WAS pregnant with twins. So I’ve learned: Don’t fuck with the twin jokes. (But since you already did, I LOVE jokes like that. Crack me up.)

robin
16 years ago

uhmm..wait..did they really hear 2 or are you just messing with him? I’m excited and confused over here!!

andrea

That would have been totally awesome! Although I’d be a little scared of the karma on that one myself.

Cari

By the “yesterday” in that last sentence I understand that you already sent this to him? Too funny. I say until men carry babies themselves or learn to navigate the emotional waters that are a pregnant woman, they deserve whatever they get.
I’d love to hear what his response was to that. Love.
Also, biscuit: HA HA!!

Wait! Are you having twins??? Or are you messing with JB (and, by extension, me- since I am gullible like that)?

And JB deserves to have all his porn burned for that statement. Now that’d be “rude”.

It would have been awesome. I just wrote the other day that one of the joys in my life is picking on my husband. He does it right back, which is good, because otherwise I might feel bad about making him squirm so much. Might.

Nothing wrong with being a little rude now and again. That’s hilarious.

Personally I would have said 3 heart beats or just sent a cryptic “I think the addition to the house needs to be a little bit BIGGER …” note.

I used to tell hubby I was PG by having a bunch of pink and blue balloons delivered to his office. Last time it was totally hilarious……..#3 was a little boo-boo!

Karen

I think that’s totally fine. It would have been rude to say three or four heartbeats though.
