Then Comes Grumpope* in a Baby Carriage

I have a secret. I’m going to tell all of you right now.

I’m pregnant!

That’s right, knocked up, preggers, with child, expecting, got a bun in the oven.

It’s becoming fairly obvious now, and even my clients at work know, so I figured it’s time to tell the world. I’m about 18 weeks along, and my due date is April 9, 2008. That’s two days after my own birthday. I’ve even started to feel the baby move around a bit, like a fluttery spastic sensation in my belly. Everything has been going great so far, with absolutely no morning sickness or nausea of any kind. My symptoms have been mild: I have experienced the fatigue (they’re lying when they say you aren’t as tired in the second trimester) and my feet have swollen a couple of times after standing for a long time. And of course, my pants are too tight in the waist.

The BIG ULTRASOUND is scheduled for November 19, when we will receive confirmation on what I am already sure of: it’s a girl.

I’ll try not to turn this blog into a blubbering baby extravaganza. But it might turn into one anyways.

*PS. We’re calling the baby grumpope right now because it started off looking like a tadpole. Grumpope is the family frog name.
