Our Child’s Birth, Live on the Interwebs

  • Posted on April 10, 2008 at 6:15 pm

Larry is going to twitter the labor and birth of the baby.* Well, he’s going to try, although I have my doubts that when things get really heavy that he’ll want/remember to do it. (What I mean is, he’s supposed to be my Labor Coach–I need him to coach me, not type messages into the phone every five minutes. So we’ll see.) Even if the updates are not every five minutes, he’ll definitely have the birth announcement and a little picture of the baby whenever she finally arrives. For those of you unfamiliar with Twitter, it’s a useful web application for staying in touch with friends and family. You can create little 140-character messages that people “following” you can see. Sort of like a mini-blog. Or stalking.

Any hoosier, you can follow the twitter labor and birth updates over there —> to the right, see it up there, at the top of this blog? Or better yet, come on, don’t be a laggard, be a first mover! Sign up for twitter yourself! Here’s the link: http://twitter.com/. Sign up, and then you can “follow” LAKing, Larry’s handle on twitter. You can even choose to receive text messages on your phone every time he twitters. You can leave the house, go to the movies, go shopping, or even get a pedicure while I am laboring. It’ll be like you’re right there.

*he really wants to AUDIO RECORD the labor and birth. My response was: are you fucking kidding me?

    Um, some of us work in buldings with restricted access to twitter. Pooh.

    Also, your response to Larry doing an audio recording: priceless!

    I also plan on twittering the birth of my child on April 30th or whenever it happens. I plan on sending pictures to mutterz, and setting up my parents on twitter even in they are in the waiting room.
