Willingly and intentionally. Stuck this on the ITR backwater because I feel weird and sorta self important cramming it out there on ILE or something. But yes, k and I are now at 16 weeks so we are owning up to the world. Hello Internet!

Also, I have already gotten a snide Facebook email from a vaguely remembered half-acquaintance about how bummed out they were that they had to find out via Facebook. Hello Internet?

I guess I thought both of those were for peeps that already had kids? whereas at this point I have only made an avocado sized potential human that lives in my wife. We have named it Nautilus. For the time being.

Unless when it shows up it looks like other Nautiluses I have known in which case game on.

Nautilus is a great name. Please call it that. Or possibly 'King Nautilus III'.

Oh, and congrats.

Great moments in dad-to-be-ness - managing to wait several hours to tell k that when they were zooming through her innards in the ultrasound that it looked just like the corridors in Aliens.

And yeah, ultrasounds are kind of weird looking.

Sara R-C, Tuesday, 26 February 2013 06:40 (six years ago) link

Also, instead of making us calculate stuff out, maybe you could just write out what K's due date is?

NAG NAG NAG

To be fair, as the father, that isn't really my job

O_o-O_O-o_O (jjjusten), Tuesday, 26 February 2013 07:30 (six years ago) link

Oh, good date! MY J's birthday is the 16th.

I really tried to evict her before that but she would NOT be moved.

Sara R-C, Tuesday, 26 February 2013 17:29 (six years ago) link

Actual telephone conversation from the morning of the 16th, for your entertainment.

Me: I'm finally in labor, I need to get to the hospital, so please come home.

A: Okay, I have about ten more minutes of work to do here in the President's office, then I can come.

Me: FINE, I WILL HAVE THIS BABY BY MYSELF AT HOME THEN (*slams phone down*).

Sara R-C, Tuesday, 26 February 2013 17:30 (six years ago) link

Moral of the story: Even if you have something that is going to delay you for a few minutes, always tell your in-labor partner that you are on your way RIGHT NOW.

Sara R-C, Friday, 5 April 2013 06:02 (six years ago) link

I remember the first time I felt 4l3x kick, we were driving down Lyndale, on our way home from the Mud Pie. I felt this very odd flutter. Wasn't sure that was what it was at first... but eventually I was persuaded.

Of course by the end of it I felt like he was swinging from my lower right ribs somehow... So yeah. COOL but eventually not that comfortable. Which is still cool because BABY!!!

Sara R-C, Friday, 5 April 2013 06:04 (six years ago) link

So many congrats, jj.
