Maybe this belongs in the Ventilation Station, but it's not about my kids....

I told one of my friends I was pregnant -- "another boy!" is how I announced the gender -- and she said she was sorry I wasn't having a girl.

I also mentioned I've been drinking a lot of coffee because it's the only thing that stops me from having a sour stomach and she sent me two links about limiting caffeine consumption. I have 2 cups a day -- (usually I only have a few cups a week and drink white tea instead, but tea has been making me feel ill lately) -- that's a lot for me, but not over the top or anything.

Well, I guess I learned my lesson and I should just keep my mouth shut about being pregnant (I've literally only told a handful of people, no one in our families know). UGH!!

Yeah, you've got to follow the person's lead on this kind of thing before you state an opinion. I have a friend that was really upset to find out she was having a girl for number two, because she wanted two boys. I have another friend with a three year old boy and she just found out she is pregnant with two boys...I didn't say anything about that except hooray! (She was upset about it, which she told me, which is my point). Sorry crabby!

See I'd be all "oh, don't worry, we're raising the next one trans." Because I'm that person.

I had a lot of fun while pregnant answering "So what are you having?" with "A BABY." Stole that one from my friend's oldest kid, who was ~10 then.

When I was pregnant and people asked me what I was having, I would get all excited and shout "I HOPE IT'S A PUPPY!"

And Butternut nailed it - the appropriate response to "I'm having a girl/boy/twins/a half-alien baby" is "Congratulations!" If you're feeling verbose, you can add a "let me know if there's anything I can do to help out when the time comes!"

I've used this line and also "I hope it's a guinea pig!!!" Which according to people's reactions is a weird thing to say

Blah I even deleted the first post. Anyway, I have a high fever that Tylenol will lower but not break. I can't get out of bed because then I can't breathe and I start coughing like crazy and get dizzy and nauseated. Everything hurts. Urgent Care said not to worry and that it's just a cold or flu, or possibly strep. Still bleeding too. Obgyn appointment is in 3 days. Hopefully I'll have good news to post here one day.

Get well soon!! And may you get good news soon. I had bleeding that seemed to go on forever! But all was fine. It's really common, but it sure does suck to go through. *hugs*

Meanwhile, I hope you're able to distract yourself some.

Baby Alex has arrived! I'll write more later. But my baby boy came on Friday morning. I thought my bag of water might have been leaking Thursday so I went in to get checked. They told me not amniotic fluid and that I was 1 cm and 50% so it could be quite awhile still. Well I guess baby wanted out because that night around midnight I woke up with contractions. Around 4 am I woke up mr chiveggie because even a bubble bath wasn't helping. I got to the hospital at 6 am got checked and was at 3 cm. I progressed lightening fast and baby was born at 11am. Got my natural hypnobirthing experience and got to labor in the tub for a bit at the hospital. Only thing that didn't go according to plan was his heart rate was dropping a bit while pushing and they decided to help get him out faster do I got an episiotomy do they could vacuum him at the end. He is healthy and beautiful so I don't mind at all. I am so in love with him and can't believe he is actually here. Okay back to nursing I go.
