My dad, "Well, it looks like you will be as big as a house again." Yes...thank you dad.
Aris, my brother, "How's the parasite? You know the creature that will be living and feeding off of you for 9 months."
No, we aren't going to find out the sex of the baby. We have NO problem referring to the baby as "it" or "the baby." Or in our case, "mung bean" and "sesame seed."
No, we will not be sharing our name choices with anyone. That's our secret. Why, because we don't want to see the look on any one's face when they disapprove or we don't want to hear about that one really mean kid in your jr. high school with that name. Trust me, the names we have in mind will raise an eyebrow...well, at least the boy name.
No, I'm not having twins...thanks for pointing out how freakishly huge I am.
I don't think I'm freakish, just huge. I like being huge and I feel better about my body when I'm pregnant than when I'm not pregnant.
Mezmur loves babies, but if a baby looks at me she will shout, "NO BABY, MY MAMA." We may be in trouble. Then again, she says the same thing about a loud truck or a spooky bug. Like the spider that was on me and bit me in the car. Thanks to the baby and our need to buy a mini van with automatic locking doors, otherwise I would've been jumping out of a moving vehicle. I tried, but I was too shaken up to figure out how to unlock the doors.
I'm not exaggerating...this was the spider. It was a Garden Orb Weaver. The body was the size of a dime.
We feel so blessed by this pregnancy. So relieved that all is going well. We waited a long time for this baby and we had a scare early on, so we do not take it for granted. I just can't believe we still have to wait 5 months to meet this baby!
