It's HOT HOT HOT, and the baby's the size of an onion (definitely not as cute as a the navel orange, right?)...can not figure out how to cleverly transition the Onion thing into a Blooming Onion because of the heat joke...so let's just pretend I did some amazing word play and laugh.|
I had my very first stranger come up to me about my being pregnant. I have to say I was starved for it. After walking around my church with no one mentioning it - I guess afraid to guess wrongly that I was even pregnant, though my tummy now protrudes further than my breasts, having a stranger make a comment was thrilling. Of course, it was at midnight at a beach dinner and I was asking for something lemony. Maybe she took it as a craving?
She's a new grandmother with another on the way, and because they were almost out of *everything* that seemed remotely appetizing, she asked, "Well, what do you think the baby wants?" Then small talk (and none of those really awful intrusive preggers questions, either) about babies ensued. My DH was well over it, LOL. He wanted his pie!
I tried uploading a DVD disk of our sonogram to make the big reveal on-line, but can't seem to do it (and my old scanner doesn't work with my new-ish laptop, so the printed pic is out)...
But, we are having a son!
I'm thrilled about it, though DH and I were thinking more along the lines of it being a girl - even had the girl's name chosen....there are about five boy names (first name is all we are working on) that we both came up with...really easy peasy with names this go around...we like everything the same...I almost wish we would start nixing each other's suggestions.
He's so healthy it's not funny - I'm so glad...everything during the scan was very hopeful, and like I said, lots of follow ups to ensue.
We shared with the kids the gender of the baby on Friday as it was the first time we were all going to be in the same place at the same time. (They like zero of our names and were coming up with really unappealing suggestions, LOL.)
We were going to share with the church last night, but another news announcement came out that was severely opposite of wanting to share baby news, so we're holding off...maybe next week.
Thanks, especially to the couple of commentors (especially Tamara - you're so nice to indulge me as I try to post frequently).
