« Bead it, baby | Main | And a Chappy Chanukah to all »

What an honor to be able to be the first to send you and Plosh an on-line Mazel Tov!

Grin, My wife and i just had our first child this past September 30th. I think we only had one worry wart momemnt like you discussed. Wait until you have a baby! Half the time I am asking my wife where the instruction manual is. Batten down your worry hatches now, because actually having the baby doesn't make it any easier!

Good luck during the pregnancy!


Umm, what was our favorite name again?

Oh, and Shawn, this will be our second. Our first is 2.5 years old and still doesn't sleep through the night. Fortunately for you, our son is the anomaly, not the rule.

Congratulations! Wow! I remember when we saw our first child at 6 weeks, at the infertility clinic...I can still see that little blinking line of heartbeat...

Congrats to you both!! Wow.. something must be in the air.. both you two... another blogger I visit, Jay have just discovered that "he's pregnant" lol..
I do not doubt that you will choose a fabulous name.. as I already love the name Seth.. in fact.. it's on my list of names.. but I got to wait another 10yrs or so before I can use it ;)

Oh Anne, this is wonderful. Congrats to you and Plosh and Seth! Officer Jake and I are cheering for you guys! : )

Congratulations! I know that pre-confirmation worrying (or, to spin it in a more positive direction, anticipatory) feeling very well...

Mazel Tov! And Happy Hanukkah! I don't know if you've visited my site lately, but I am also expecting our second child and I'm due around July 15.


Anne, in view of what was worrying you were right to get checked out and did absolutely the right thing. What wonderful news though! I think congratulations are certainly in order!

That's wonderful news (that you're pregnant not a worry wart)! I'm so happy for you!! Congrats, etc., etc.

There must be something in the Southern California air if you and Motomama are pregnant. Maybe I shouldn't come out? Then again, I can only get only get pregnant in July in the Midwest.

Mazel tov! The best Hanukkah present you could ask for.

Oh,my God, Anne!!!! Congratulations, Mazel tov, happy Hanukkah and HURRAY for you!! I couldn't be more pleased. You hang in there, girl. Your fan club applauds you.

Everyone: Thank you all so much. Your support and funny comments mean so much to me. I of course feel horribly guilty that I've been too distracted to spend much time blogging, and I owe you all lengthy visits. Mazel Tov to Michelle especially, and a big welcome to Shawn Smith. Thanks for hanging in there with me, everybody.

Congratulations! Your experience sounds like when I found out I was pregnant 2 years ago. Here's to a happy, healthy pregnancy!

  • It is good to be the Empress
    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
