Feeling spacey today. For a second I thought it was baby brain –tired and foggy. But it couldn’t be that already. God, I hope I’m not starting to overreact to things! Then I remembered –no coffee today. No usually perky morning high. I’m going to miss that.


Yes. The cheap, plastic-less strip showed two pink lines. I took it at 5 min to 5pm. Couldn’t wait any longer. And watched as the film developed. So odd. It still hasn’t sunk in. I jumped on a conference call with Jeffre and then cleaned the house.

Then I put the strip in a little box –actually the same one I gave Charles his wedding ring in, now that I think of it. When he got home I started making dinner and telling him about a chat with Richard and, oh by the way I have a present for you.

He couldn’t wait to open the present so I left the beans on the stove and took him into the living room to sit on the couch. When he pulled the strip out, he didn’t know what it was.

“Well, it’s one for no, two for yes,” I said.

He still didn’t get it so I ran into the bathroom to get the box that screams “pregnancy test” on the cover.

When I came back in he asked, “Did you pee on this?”


“You’re pregnant?”


“Cool. Wow.”

“I know. Ah!”

“That was fast.”

And we sat on the couch and wiggled side by side for moment. Until we remembered the beans.

The rest of the night we kept thinking of things. We looked up when I’d be fat. And what I couldn’t eat (he didn’t let me have cottage cheese or garlic paste on my burrito).

At one point he made me repeat after him: “I. Want. An. Epidural.”

But I’m not sure about that. Would be cool to see what women through the world and history experience.

“But they used to die,” he said.

“Not for lack of an epidural.”

Charles started throwing out names. Roger. Mel (for Melbourne). I like his middle name, Vousden.

Ok, I’m rambling now. Must be decaf brain.

Weird that we can’t tell anyone. Another 2 months.

Should I go to the Evolutions dinner since I can’t drink?

Can we tell the family when Lisa is here for their visit from Texas?

No traveling at Christmas.

No Mom –she would have loved it. She would have looked up the Astrological aspects right away. Looks like it might be an Aquarius or a Pisces…
