I have waited a very, very long time for this day.
By rights, I can be called Aunt Kate at this very moment. There's a tiny, itty bitty peanut out there in the world with a shred of DNA code similar to mine who will someday, God willing, be my niece or nephew.
A little creature the size of a sesame seed who will make me smile, make me giggle, make me proud.
So should I be aunt like ahnt, the way they say it in Connecticut? Or aunt like ant, the way I grew up saying it in the Midwest? Will this be Hannah Maeve or Liam or Emma or Collin Forbes (can you tell my sister has a thing for Irish names?)?
I would cross all my fingers and toes if I could on this one.
Miscarriages run in my family - so we're all kind of treading lightly.
But if things go right, I could have a beautiful baby to dote on by the beginning of October.
Oh Kate, this is great news. I will pray that everything goes smoothly and that October will come fast!!!
What an exciting time for you and your family. Well, and for your sister too. Good thoughts are going your family's way!
There is something in the water. Practically everyone I know is pregnant. Heck, we've got 6 pregnancies at my work place alone.
I think I'm safe though unless God decides to grant another immaculate conception with my body as his vessel. ;-)
PS... Love the new poll. Looks like you've been crusing CafePress.com too! :-)
Nat- thanks for the well wishes... Yes, we are all hoping everything works out for an October 6ish delivery!
GAC- Yes, lots of babies out there. I would also be an immaculate conception, but I don't know that this world is ready for another miracle of that magnitude.
The funny onesies - yes I love them. Bridge says I'm going to be this baby's "cool aunt" so I guess I have to live up to it!
