The Cat is Now Sprawling Out of the Bag

Okay, so it's the 23rd, and I'm done waiting. Some of you may have already read this elsewhere, but here goes y'all:


Holy Kegel it feels good to get that out. I feel like I've been pretty lame with the posts for the last three months and it's mainly because I've been:
a) obsessed with everything baby - from making to keeping, to learning and observing - feeling like everything else kind of came in a lame second
2) wanting to post about it, but needing to keep it on the down low
as well as
c) be too frigging tired to post anything at all.

No morning sickness at all, no cravings, no food aversions. If I didn't have these boobs and this little pooch, I wouldn't even know I was pregnant. Umm, that's a total lie. I'm also tired, starving all the time, enjoying water (WTF? I know!!), peeing in the middle of the night and farting up a storm.

Mom, baby (aka niblet) and I spent half an hour together today with the ultrasound tech - apparently the little one has inherited both parents' stubborn genes (Go Irish!) and was determined not to get into the desired position for measurements.

We're tossing names around right now (we're looking into both as we're not going to find out before he/she is born)...any suggestions?

CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is fantastic - so excited for you!

P.S. I think Haley is a lovely name for a baby girl.

Lollie said...

MILF! Ha! But let me tell you - I'm willing to pump for the rest of my life if I can keep the boobs...

Congratulations! This is the third announcement (accompanied by ultrasound photo) I've seen on a blog this week. You're in good company!

Whiskeymarie said...

You KNOW how excited I am.

Holy shit this is exciting.

Again, Whiskey has a lovely ring to it (works for boys and girls!)

But if you want other suggestions:
Festus, Mildred, Mercedes, Cooter, Barnaby, Ezmerelda, Percival, Nimrod and Peaches are all nice.

Worker Mommy said...

OMG! Congratulations woman!!!!

I have been wanting to ask you about how "things" were going but was afraid for fear that "they" hadn't yet happened.

I can't tell you how ecstatic I am for you and your guy. I call dibs on the cyber babyshower when the time comes!

Lollie said...

Oh, trust - all my blog pals are getting an invitation to baby shower/vacation in sunny Florida late June early July-ish. What better occasion to meet my gals?

Anyone have any objections?

Worker Mommy said...

And this is why we love you.
I was talking about hosting a cyber shower over at my blog for you but hell I'd never resist a trip to sunny Flo-rida!

christina said...

congrats, lollie!

Stacie said...

Here by way of WhiskeyMarie to say CONGRATULATIONS!

Stopping over from Whiskey's to say CONGRATULATIONS!

My only suggestion on the name is to not. tell. anyone. what you decide. I learned that the hard way and my SIL was like, "Oh, yeah. People will pick it APART!" I don't know why. They just do.

Congrats again!

SuperBee said...

CONGRATS!!! :) :) :)

My secretary is pregnant, so I'm uh... eating for two as well.

Katrin said...

Also sent over from Whisky's:


Names? Ella, Daria, Adam, Philip, Louise, Emma, Aurelie, Rosalie

Omar said...

It is my duty as your negro friend to suggest names like BoomSheeka, Tyrell, D'Qwell, Laquita...or you just go with Becky or Amy...
