Big news but hopefully not as impressive as being the host of a previously unknown alien species.

You know that scene in Alien where the little chestburster explodes from John Hurt’s chest, makes a little baby cry noise and then scurries off to grow to be a big strong man destroying monster?

That’s going to happen in me some time in November except instead of an alien it will be a human (hopefully) baby girl and she’ll be emerging south of my chest. And also I’m hoping I’m alive afterward and also that those in the room aren’t whimpering “Oh my God…” and covered in blood. You know, in a BAD way.

This is one of the reasons I haven’t been as active on my blog – I’m tired. I’m thinking that perhaps my child is feeding upon my sarcasm and smart assery and absorbing it into herself which I suppose will both delight and horrify me as she grows up. Anyway, she’s not leaving much for me to work with. But this is also a bit of a cop out because I’ve been lazy since before I was pregnant.

I would also say that I’ve been busy spending a lot of time preparing for this baby but I haven’t even re-watched Mr. Mom ONCE since I found out I was pregnant. I gotta get my act together.

So that’s my big news. I hope to be back at Super Friends and other posts this week/next week if the baby can spare an ounce or two of motivation and energy.

  1. Congratulations! As soon as I saw mention I thought back to the #2 item on your 10th wedding anniversary post and wondered if you, like me, had a “if I’m going to have a baby at all I guess it might as well be now” sort of moment. πŸ™‚

    I fell asleep on the couch every night about 7 pm during my first trimester. During the second one I had decent energy. By the end of the third one I was sleeping sitting upright due to acid reflux and having milkshakes for dinner because I COULD. But that was just me and since I hate any kind of unsolicited advice, I’m not going to shell out any now.

  2. CONGRATS! Now you and 10,395 other people that I know are all pregnant! (Okay. I don’t know even 1 percent that amount of people, but whatever.) CONGRATS!


    Oh, well THIS is very exciting! I am very much looking forward to sarcastic baby blog posts.

    And just think, you’ve already got this parenting thing DOWN. You know all the good advice! Just watch all the Superfriends episodes where they give terrible advice, and do the opposite. Total win!

  4. Congratulations! How wonderful! I have no clever comments for hearing about a pregnancy, mainly because I love babies and am so happy to hear when other people are pregnant knowing that I am not. πŸ™‚

    Warm thoughts for a healthy few more months, and I hope you get your energy back soon!

  5. Well, good news. It’s nice to see a happy reason for someone slowing down on posts. Congratulations to you and your partner. I wish you good health and easy travels the rest of your pregnancy.

  6. Congratulations! That’s SUPER news (ba dum bump)!
    Totally get the pregnancy brain thing though. I was pregnant during grad school, and frankly I’m shocked I passed, much less graduated. We’ll be here when you get back.

  7. Carrie!!! This is such wonderful news! I am so very happy for you. When you commented on Thoughtsy’s post about all of your troubles recently, my heart just broke for you. For both of you, really. And now . . . what amazingly wonderful news!! Really, I am overjoyed for you. I won’t even think of mentioning that if you think THIS is tired, you have no idea. Nope, wouldn’t dream of bringing that up! πŸ˜‰ But, I’m sure being a zombie will be totally worth it to have a beautiful baby girl! I can’t wait to “meet” her!!! πŸ™‚
