No Subtlety Here

SweetPicklesSweetPickles Posts: 850Registered Users
I had been hoping to slip this into a thread all sneaky-like, a la Geeky :wink:, but this forum has been really quiet lately and no one has given me the *in* I needed. So here it is:

Baby Pickles #2 shall be arriving (approximately) the first week of May, 2008. And the gender balance in our house is definitely not tipping in the boys' favor, as it's another girl (like we didn't agonize enough over girl names the first time!). And in case anyone asks, this was "under discussion," but definitely unexpected, given that it took several years to get the first one.

I waited so long to share because we had some unsettling test results early on. But the amnio results came back today and all is well. Though, honestly, anyone who knew me could have been able to guess just by looking at me since oh, about week 7. I know they say you show earlier with subsequent kids, but WOW! That it an understatement with me.
Hair type: Completely confused: mostly 3a, some 3b parts, and even 2 in places; very fine and thin.
Products: Elucence clarifying & MBC; CK, F/X Curl Booster Fixative Gel (when I can find it)

    Yay! That's awesome news! I was suspi cious when you asked me about bouncy seat recs, but didn't want to pry.

    What fabulous news. Girls are wonderful! :blob7:

    Thanks everyone! It still feels all a little bit surreal, but the timing actually is quite good, with the baby arriving right as the semester ends.

    Yeah, I guess I'm not as sneaky as I think I am, eh? :wink: I probably would have just 'fessed up then, if I hadn't been so freaked out while waiting for the test results. I've been a basket case (as I'm sure you understand). I literally hadn't told anyone, save my parents, because I've been so worried and talking about it just made it worse.

    I confess that I am a little disappointed that we won't have a boy, but I had a *feeling* all along that it was another girl.

    I had much worse morning sickness this time around that just would not go away. It's only in the last week or two that I'm doing okay. At least so far I am actually able to breathe- with Z, starting almost immediately, I literally couldn't walk more than a couple of steps on flat ground without getting seriously winded.

    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq

    Um, not right now I'm not. I'm going to let SP go first again so she can do all the research (again).

    Ha! But you ended up really going first! Z was so late that we ended up being a whole month behind you, even though I was due earlier.

    I keep thinking that the transition to two kids is sort of like the transition to two dogs - i.e. not that much more work than just having one. Yeah, I know. I'm in total denial :confused3:

    Yes, I know. And I was TOTALLY unprepared! I thought you would just take notes for me and I'd be fine.

    CONGRATS on your new girl!

    The grass is always greener. I would have much preferred multiple girls, and I only got one. In the end, though, they are people, not just genders. AND, if you decide you don't want her, ship her to me. I'd love another girl.

    I'm actually really glad you posted this. I've been feeling really guilty about wanting another girl- I have one of each, and it almost feels like I shouldn't care one way or the other or like it's an insult to my son to want a girl. In the end, it won't matter, but it's nice to know that other people have similar feelings.
