Pacing

Sooooooo........

Are you all pacing a trough in your hallways like I am? Every time I see a new All & Sundry post or a new So the Fish Said post or a new Hello, Self post, I just about throw up from excitement. Here is my brain: "Baby?? Baby?? Baby?? Baby?? Baby?? Baby??"

So. *drums fingers*

BABY??

(From the rest of you, I'm hoping for pregnancy announcements.)

I know... I'm dying to see some newborn pictures and hear names!!!

samantha jo campen said...

TOTALLY. Plus I'm all about the Sweet Juniper baby too and they're all gonna blow any minute!

The name suspense is KILLING me.

Jess said...

I know! Sundry posts so much these days whenever I don't see something new in my google reader I think maybe yes?!!

Jana said...

I love the suspense of a birth! I look forward to my "So the Fish Said" update everyday! Of course, in my case, having a scheduled c-section kinda ruins the suspense (the baby WILL be born on this day at this time, etc). That's why we're keeping both the gender and name secrets this time around. Our families think we're totally cruel for doing so.

Black Sheeped said...

Um. We got a new fish a few weeks ago!

Mary said...

I'm so waiting for my husband to give me the green light. I want to be pregnant now!!!

Mommy Daisy said...

Oh oh, me too! I've been stalking Linda and Beth too.

And I'm in the same boat as Mary...waiting on the husband (and a month or so to be clear of his 2 week hiatus in the fall).

amber said...

I admit I've been kind of obsessively checking to see if anyone has delivered yet.

Marie Green said...

I'm not sure if I'm more excited about the BABIES or the BABY NAMES. Either way it's so exciting!

OHHH, I'm most excited about seeing the little squashed tomato-faced newborn pictures. Yes. That's what I'm looking forward to.

I'm jumpy about updates too...

(P.S. I'm not pregnant.)

Swistle said...

Black Sheeped- INSUFFICIENT. ...Is it a BABY fish?

Jessa said...

Well, don't count on any pregnancy announcements from this part of blog land...much as I'd like to help you out!

Bunny said...

You are so funny! Yes, I am sucked into blog-prgenancies. DO you also read Zoot ? She;s not as far along, but she's expecting. Oh and Lost a Sock just had a 6 week along sonogram, I read about this morning.

(you're welcome)

Nowheymama said...

You're not expecting a pregnancy annoucement from *me* right now, I hope. :)

Black Sheeped said...

Well, I think it's sort of YOUNG. Because it is growing.

But it's not sufficient, and I'll get back to the waiting now.

Alice said...

i'm lucky, one of my close personal friends just had her baby YESTERDAY, and another is scheduled to pop in 2 weeks. so i have my fix here, at least. also OMG SMOOSHY BABY BORN YESTERDAY HEEEEE.

Beenami said...

So I'm such an obsessive blog-checker that even when Google Reader says "No new messages" I check anyway, and I'm not sure if you've noticed this too, but sometimes you'll post something, but it doesn't show up in Google Reader for a little while. I'm not sure how long it takes, I just know there is some time lapse. So now I'm constantly logging into Google Reader, but then RE-CHECKING each. individual. site.

And "INSUFFCIENT - is it a BABY fish?" made me snort out loud in class. I had to cover my mouth. My professor is still glaring at me.

Swistle said...

NoWheyMama- No, you're off the hook---FOR NOW!

Beenami- I HAVE noticed that. I use Bloglines, but it's the same way. It is annoying! Sometimes it takes HOURS. Sometimes I go to a "brand-new post" to find there are already 50 comments on it because it's been there for ages. GRRRRR.

Jess said...

I am the same way! Also, if all goes according to plan you will not be hearing a pregnancy announcement from me for quite some time. But I am paranoid and therefore my attitude is YOU NEVER KNOW.

el-e-e said...

what's impressive about Sundry is she continues to post interesting things about topics OTHER than her impending labor.

She is Good.

Pocklock said...

My pregnancy announcement was 2 weeks ago (http://tinyurl.com/2hgn4d). I was 11 weeks yesterday and now I'm just dealing with the hormonal rage part. VERY fun for the husband and co-workers! (Not so much)

I think Beth Fish will go this weekend sometime. Aren't they all having boys too? A boy boom!

donna said...

I'm dying to hear about Beth too. Obsessively checking. But I took the 4th in the pool so I think it'll not be this weekend.

And I wish I could oblige you in the pregnancy announcement area. Damn slack ass ovaries of mine.

Banana said...

Obsessively checking all the time. And HOPEFULLY I can fufill the last request in the next few months. Getting pregnant takes so much waiting!

desperate housewife said...

I'm with you on the stalking, er, checking, but no preggo announcements from me anytime soon- FAMOUS LAST WORDS.

Brooke said...

I am eager for Sundry's baby too, but isn't it a scheduled c-section? Can't you stop pacing on her behalf until Monday? :-)

I have a baby on the way, but no pithy blog. I mean, I have a blog but it's newsy, not pithy. Anyway, my baby's not due until April, so you can put off any pacing you might want to do on my behalf.

Whimsy said...

I have an eight MONTH pregnancy announcement. Ha ha?

Yeah, yeah, I know: INSUFFICIENT.

Maddie said...

Hmmm, does a babies-coming-home-soon announcement help at all?
It sure helps me!

She Likes Purple said...

Yes, I am the same!

I hope for a pregnancy announcement next month. We're using a fancy schmancy monitor-thing now (official name) so we're hoping this is just what we need.

(Staying positive. Yes we are.)

JennB said...

I've got 17 more weeks (16 as of Monday 2/4) to go with baby #2.... so tune in and I'll keep you all posted as we get to the end of May.

Laura said...

Alas...no pregnancy announcements shall come from me. :( But, two of my best bloggy friends gave birth within like two weeks of each other, with one just days ago, so I am in reading about new baby heaven.

Eleanor Q. said...

Eight weeks to go, too early for announcement, late enough to wish it would just hurry up alrady. I'm obsessively checking Sundry and Fish with the misguided thought that the more people ahead of me who have their babies the faster mine will come. Sigh.

Sarah said...

Me too!! I've been stalking Sundry's blog in high anticiaption. I really want to know tha name she chose already!!!

Misguided Mommy said...

uggg i cant wait for sundry. also it's just not the same over here with out cookies and brownies. however, as someone also on a diet, i won't be mean and try and guilt you into posting lucious pictures of delicious chocolaty goodness I'll just say good job.

Alicia said...

I'm pregnant... :-P Not that it's much of an announcement. *grin* I'm contracting as we speak (have been all week) and thinking this baby just might come early. Hooray for babies. Yay.

Anonymous said...

Long time reader, first time de-lurker,,,,love your blog and love your readers that also post, SOOOOOO since we're on the baby topic...I was wondering if you'd take an informal survey and throw your opinions out there about "how old is too old..." I had my first child at 34, second child at 36...Is 38 too old for #3? We currently have 2 boys, and they are incredible....but what if deep down I'm tryng #3 in hopes of a girl???? Is 38 too OLD?
Help! Opionios greatly appreciated.

Tracy said...

No announcements here (and none to come), but my sister just had one and I have three friends in early pregnancy, so I am kind of in your boat. I get to pace now and see those squishy faces and tired mommas soon. Also, I loved reading about Linda. I can't wait for the name!

Swistle said...

Steph- I know that at around age 35 there's an increase risks and complications and birth defects, and a decrease in fertility--but if I wanted a baby at 38, I probably wouldn't let that stop me from trying. I'll be 35 on my next birthday, but I'd still like to have one more baby.

Liss said...

Well, since you insist...I got the news YESTERDAY that our IVF was successful, so I am in fact pregnant!

Just a teeny-tiny bit pregnant so far so I am not posting it to my own site just yet - instead I just walk around like the cat that swallowed the canary, so happy I could just about pop.

Swistle said...

Oh, LISS! Congratulations! What happy news!
