Ok, ok.

OK, here are the details, insofar as we even have any.

- We JUST found out. I had told Mr. Squab before I left for GA that I thought I might be pregs, but it was still a little early to take a test. Then, when I was down south, I mentioned to my stepmom that I was kind of thinking of getting a pregnancy test, and well: you just can't SAY something like that to my stepmom if you don't intend to follow through. So we got the test, and I took it, and it was positive, and I tried calling Mr. Squab but he wasn't by the phone, so I took a picture of the results with my phone camera and sent it to his phone. (His initial reaction: "Oh, my GOD.")

- I'm about 4-5 weeks along. Very early days; haven't even had my first doctor's appointment yet. Early enough that I'm still half-expecting to have started my period every time I go to the bathroom. (Gross, but true.) Early enough that a lot of people wouldn't even be talking about it yet. But fuck it, I'm too tired to keep that big a secret from y'all for that long. If it doesn't last, I'll blog that too.

- If everything goes as planned, we'll be welcoming baby 2.0 sometime in late March 2009.

- So far I'm just having a little nausea, but I expect that will ramp up this week to the full-blown, total food aversion I had last time, because my body is super fun like that. Expect much bitching to ensue.

- We haven't completely settled on a pre-natal name yet, but in keeping with the grand tradition of "Hoss" (the Hatchling's pre-natal name), we're leaning towards "Bubba" this time around. It has that nice, slightly hick ring to it, no?
