Happy (early) Valentine's Day!

We're gonna have a baby.

(*gasp!*)

We just found out yesterday and I've been thinking: should I blog it? Should I wait? Then I thought: what the hell? If (god forbid) something does happen b/c it's still early, would I regret telling you guys? Nope - not at all.

TD is through the roof with joy (and researching how much calcium I need a day, etc.) - and I'm just trying to keep my eyes open all day long! I've decided (after looking at artists' renderings of a 6-week old embryo online) that I must be giving birth to a manatee b/c that's what it looks like.

Medieval Manatee...

I stayed up for the men's short track final, but it's now way past my bedtime...

P.S. I hereby retract this whiny post - apparently I was actually pregnant when I wrote it. Yeesh! How embarrassing...

CONGRATULATIONS!!! (Not screaming, but quite elated -- not sure if that translates!)

Brava! Mazel tov! Wooohoooo!

(Don't forget your pre-natal vitamins, especially the folic acid!)

Yay for the Medieval Dutchman Baby! I can't wait to follow your adventures! Do try to take it easy! May you have an uneventful pregnancy!

Oh, MW, I'm so happy for you and TD! And a manatee too -- just what you always wanted! :-)

This is great, great news, and I'm so glad you shared it with us.

Belle said...

All of the above, and five happy dances around the room! I'll do more later re: your news, but I've only had one cup of coffee so far.

Medieval Manatee Dutchman!

Notorious Ph.D. said...

Whoaow!!!

Congratulations! Just when you finish with one egg, you start with another, huh? ;-)

Okay, so now I need to go back and read anything but the first line of the post, which was as far as I got.

Hey, what do you think of the idea of using the word verification words as possible names for the sprog? Just to get things started, mine today is "crutolild." Like really, really working for a crouton.

Meansomething said...

My word verification was "Sheran," which sounds like what Stubb used to call a "stripper name" when rejecting possible names for the Snork Maiden--but then the page reloaded and it changed to "berselly" (berserk belly?). Anyway, our warmest congratulations! What great news!

Dr. Virago said...

Woo-hoo!!!!! Congratulations!!!!

the rebel lettriste said...

Rock it, Medieval Manatee! Keep on growing!

Doctor Cleveland said...

Congratulations, MW! That's wonderful!

I advise you to accompany your calcium supplements with extra Cheetos. You're eating cheetos for two, now.

Stephanie Trigg said...

Wonderful news! What joy is ahead for you both!

All the best for peaceful pregnancy and the quiet revolution in your lives that is on the way!

Susan said...

Congratulations, and welcome Medieval Manatee. Or my wv, which is rediante, which sounds like "radiant" and vaguely latin-y.

Is this why you were so tired? I wondered...

Dame Eleanor Hull said...

Oh, dear. My captcha is Dionswe, which sounds like you might be having quints (but I'm probably dating myself here). Congratulations on the manatee!

Contemporary Troubadour said...

What happy news for Valentine's Day. Delighted for you :)

Good Enough Woman said...

What happy news, MW! Congratulations! You will now begin to measure your life in pregnancy weeks instead of in terms of semester weeks.

Yay!

Renaissance Girl said...
