Baby is Nigh

Per B, I was to wait for her blog post before I did mine, and she found a few moments this morning, so here I go...

To everyone who doesn't already know: we are having a kid. Here are the FAQs and their respective answers:
  1. It is due in early May.
  2. Yes, we are going to find out what sex it is. That will happen late Dec. / early Jan.
  3. Yes, we will tell everyone what sex it is once we know.
  4. B's doing well. While the chance of her being laid off for the next budget year is all too high, she's got the job and the concomitant health insurance until after the kiddo is born, so she's getting excellent pre-natal care.
  5. We're doing the midwife thing and will probably have a doula as well. Look that up if you don't know what it is.
  6. Both of us have our H1N1 shots, finally. They were not easy to come by.
  7. I guess it goes without saying that this was thoroughly planned. We're the kind of people who thoroughly plan, like, dinners for a week in advance, so we certainly planned having a baby.
  8. Yes, I am excited.
  9. Yes, I am also completely terrified (and yes, this dramatically increases the pressure on the job hunt.)
  10. B is kind of hoping for a boy, I am hoping for a girl, but we're both cool with whatever happens.
That's all I can think of at the moment. Happy turkey day to everyone; I'll try to blog more often and with more creative / semi-interesting content when I get back from the in-laws'.

Ha! Congrats!!

Re: #9 - A friend of mine recently bought his first house and compared that experience to expecting a baby - excitement mixed with fear and apprehension. Upon reflection, I had to agree, and concluded that pre-natal nausea was probably 80% freak-out.
