Bigger Craziness! No Kidding!

I went with Jen to her doctor’s appointment this morning, and am proud to announcement that she’s healthy, happy, has great blood pressure, and is 10 weeks pregnant!!! It’s been extremely difficult to keep this a secret for so long (we’ve known for a little over a month). This morning’s appointment really brought the point home that she’s already gone through a quarter of her pregnancy, and there are just 30 weeks left until her due date (6/6/2004 for those playing along at home).

Next month, we get to hear the heartbeat. We’re taking Max with us, and I can’t wait. I think that’ll really seal it for him. He’s been a little unclear on the whole “baby growing in mommy’s belly” thing, and just kind of ignores us when we talk about it. He nods and plays along, but I don’t think it’s sunk in that he’s going to have a little brother or sister (Jen doesn’t want to find out the gender… I’m still trying to convince her). Actually, until this morning I don’t think it had really sunk in for me either. Even though we’ve been talking endlessly about baby names (and just like last time, we’re having a heck of a time trying to come up with a girl’s name), it was all academic. Today, seeing the OB again, it’s suddenly very real. It’s like Christmas Eve (for 30 more weeks!! AUGH!).

Oh, and I got to talk to my little gestating child today and he (or she) really wants you to go to nonDependant. You don’t want to disappoint a fetus, do you?

    Wow, that is very cool. Jen and I had our little girl, Grace, just over 5 months ago. It’s funny, but I am already starting to miss her when she was small. (I’ll be posting about this on my blog latter today). We are still trying to decide if we are going to have another. Any tips on why any of you had more than one?

    I always thought Zoey was a great girl’s name. Or Michelle. 🙂

    O.M.G.!!!!! fabulous news 😀 the families must be overjoyed… a little one for Max – he’s gonna go bezerk when he realizes he gets to “keep” that baby brother or sister.

    How did I miss this post?! I’m trying to think what I would have been doing in early November to cause me to miss such an important announcement. I just don’t know.
    Oh well, better late than never, right? CONGRATULATIONS! Yes, I just used all-caps, that’s how excited I am.
