Bump

Yes, it's true. I am preggers and due in April.

So I am in the same boat as Katie Holmes, only I'm married... and to a sane person...

and Melania Trump, only I'm not married to a bzillionaire... and mine has good hair...

and Jennifer Garner, who'se husband, similar to mine, loves sports and strippers...

and maybe even Angelina Jolie, only Brad Pitt isn't the father, and really, I'm fine with that. I gave up that dream a long time ago.

And seeing as though we've tried on and off for about 9 of our 14 years of marriage, I didn't think it was going to happen. And I was thinking, "OK, I'll take the money and freedom and run with it", then, surprise, change of plans! Though still nervous that something could go awry, my belly is growing, as is my appetite. Bring on the pizza & donuts!

Congrats! I am so happy for you Tina, I have been reading your blog for about a year now (I'm in the UK). Much love your way! Michelle x

Congratulations!!!! Isn't it so weird?!? I'm due in early June....bring on the nap!

FYI: I was at the library and picked up a copy of Pregnancy for Dummies and found it to be a nice addition to my current library of What to Expect, Girlfriend's Guide, and PG Week by Week.

I vaguely remember reading fiction.

Is it wrong to squeal in delight for somebody you've never met in person?

Congratulations to you both! I can only imagine what kind of great shower you're going to get with Jenny involved! :)

Long time reader, first time commenter, but I couldn't let this post pass without wishing you and Chuck sincere congratulations. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and snippets of your life. That is one lucky baby!

Kim said...

Oh my gosh! That picture totally threw me off guard!
Hope you're feeling OK. You look great :)
Congratulations! :)

Kim said...

Sorry, but I'm going to leave two comments today (this is big!). How did you tell Chuck?

And here's your first bit of unsolicited assvice: Enjoy every second. You'll hear over and over again that it goes so fast. My "baby" is almost 3!

Wonderful news. My most heartfelt everything.

Tina said...

Thanks everyone for the very kind comments. My panic and fear was momentarily erased as I read your words of encouragement and excitement!

PS - Congratulations to you also Kaymaria!

PS - Kim, I took a picture with my camera phone of the test stick with the two lines and sent it to his phone. How's that for modern communication! He knew I was going to be taking the test though, so it wasn't an out of the blue surprise (though still a shock to both of us!)
