It's official......Jenni and I are going to be parents! We've been trying (practice, practice....practice) for about 5 years, and we are thrilled!

She is about 2 month along, so we are still pretty early in the pregnancy, but Jenni got confirmation yesterday from her MD.

Other than that....well, we just found out so that's all I've got.

Kwea and Jenni couldn't even get pregnant ... for a full five years.

Kwea is superimposed over an image of a yacht.

Ask yourself: with this kind of a record, is Kwea and Jenni the right ticket for parenthood?

Kwea and Jenni. Wrong for pregnancy. Wrong for America.

Thursdays could be better.

Thanks again! We have an OBGYN visit this week, and we are hoping for an ultrasound to confirm how far along she really is at that point.

Congrats, my wife and I just had our first child in July.

I can't imagine how you must feel after 5 years of trying. That's amazing that it worked out for you.

A word of advice, do not believe anyone who predicts the gender until they get a picture of private parts (which make take patience as it can be difficult). They get it wrong all the time, and then you end up with a nursery filled with the wrong kind of toys very easily.

It violates some sort of strict heteronormist policy about what color sheets an infant boy is allowed to be swathed in without being embarrassed, because that's totally, like, a girl color, maaaan

Blah blah blah, hetonormist policy, blah blah blah, color schemes have changed over time blah blah...

All of that is very nice and all, but -if- Kwea and JenniK do decide to decorate their infant's room to the currently accepted norm of gender colors then they might want to wait for confirmation of gender.

[rant]Y'all hippy right (opposite of wrong, not left) fighters can dress your own children and decorate their rooms however you like all the while with your nose so far in the air all you can see is the ceiling![/rant]

That is all.

[Smile]

ETA: rivka...tutu...and misspelling aside, I doubt highly that you have no idea what I meant.

*shrug* I really didn't have a clue. I had an "OH!" moment when I first saw this most recent post of yours, though.

Anyway, who buys tutus for a newborn?

My daughter owned two before she was even born.

Princesses need their tutus.

I have two teenaged girls, both of whom have owned tutus and one point or another, and this boggles my mind.

LOL....we both love blue as a color, and pale yellows, so I'd say those will be the colors we go to regardless of the gender. We will have some pink if it is a girl, but not too much, as neither of us are crazy about the color.

Thanks!

She is about 8-9 weeks now. We had thought she was almost 3 months when we announced it, but according to the ultrasound last Monday she was between 7 and 8 weeks at that point.
