My chicken-ness. It works.

So. Um. Yeah. There’s a heartbeat and stuff. We’ve now moved up into the 95-97% range of live baby. My conservative cautiousness has earned me a nickname by the meester:

Debbie Downer.

My stomach wasn’t doing flips the entire morning. Me? Nervous? Never.

Cautiously cheering. Must not anger gods.

Thinking of you. And with a big smug grin on.

Adore you, Statia.

We need to talk about you always listening to me in the future.

PS-if you even consider giving birth in a paddling pool while listening to whale song we will be having a discussion.

Heartbeat is gooood! Panic-inducing for those who’ve begun to believe it will never really happen, but very, very good! Hang in there, ’cause the rest of the 9 months will fly (for us).

Chris July 21, 2006 at 9:43 am

Wooohoooo!! I’m so happy for you Debbie ;-)
