Baby - Week 3

We're new at this pregnancy thing. So you'll have to forgive us if we seem a) overly excited and b) incredibly naive. 

Like that I had to read the directions on interpreting a pregnancy test:

"It says, two lines means you're pregnant, one line is not pregnant and if no lines, well then it's a dud"
Chris, from the bathroom, waiting for my result: "TWO LINES!!!!" [This, at top volume].

Me: "Ha. Funny Chris. Very funny."

Chris: "No seriously. TWO LINES!!!!"

I peek my head into the bathroom. Chris has a huge grin on his face.  I don't believe him. "It was funny the first time...but now it's getting old"

As proof, Chris holds up the test:

Two lines.

Me: "Oh my god."

We're pregnant.


We're going to have a baby.



Sonja: "I can't believe this is legal. I mean, we know NOTHING about babies. Absolutely nothing. I don't understand how they can just let someone go out and procreate. With no experience, no classes, no NOTHING. Shouldn't there be a law against this or something?"

Chris: "We know something about babies."

Sonja: "What?"

Chris: "We know they take nine months. And they scream bloody murder for the first year."

Sonja: " True."

And that is the extent of our baby knowledge, friends.


So, we're short on information but full of excitement.   And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to rent every book in the library categorized under pregnancy and baby raising.
