I guess it's kind of, sort of official. Space Marine and I are having a baby! O_O

I say "kind of, sort of" because, while I'm not a pessimist, I don't like to expect the best outcomes. I've miscarried before, I've had tragic accidents before, and I try not to view myself as someone to whom bad things are unlikely to happen. Defense mechanism? Probably. That said, I am a touch excited. And anxious! This is just a life change, right? But a monumental one, and not just for me. I worry about the potential I've destroyed. I'm happy to welcome the potential I've created.

Space Marine is a great deal more stressed. I try to tell him we don't have to follow the normal social roles: he's not obligated to house me, feed me, be the sole responsible financial party for our budding family, but he insists that's not true. He doesn't want me not working, but if I were to choose that path, I think he would view it as his responsibility to maintain our lifestyle. And probably give up his dreams doing it. I love him. I won't let him miss out on adventuring and med school over our mutual accident. So, I've got to figure out a way to help, and fast.

I thought I had more to say -- something about the little monster on the ultrasound screen having a nose, and a couple ears, and a heartbeat, and some assorted phalanges. All that was cool. Oh, right. The coolest part: I can poop again. \o/

Things will work out. Likely not exactly as planned. I mean that's what life does... "oh you had plans? That's funny. Hahaha"

But they will work because you will make them work.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes -- life's a bitch, but I'm going to slap it in the face! :D

WOW! May I say congratulations? Congratulations. <3

Yes, you may! May I say thank you? Thank you! ;D

I am happy for you, Natt. I've been thinking about you and wondering. *massive hugs*

It's like Marianne just said, things might not go according to plan, but that can be a wonderful thing. :)

And yay, poop! (you said it first!)

Life revolves around poop forevermore... (or at least the next several years) ;)

Brings the tiniest of tears to my eye!

Oh, thanks so much. It means a lot! I am going to try to pad on the optimism. :)

I did! I'll say it again:

POOP, yaaay! \o/

Aww!! Yay. Congrats!!

Things will work out :)

Thank you! I hope so! :D

Congratulations!!! If you ever want to talk about the benefits of cloth diapering and/or breastfeeding, I've got info!

*hugs and snuggles*

Thank you! I may just. I seem to have leanings towards both those things. :)

How exciting!! I hope everything works out for the best, sweetheart xx

Thank you, thank you! :D

Congratulations! That deserves a flap of the wings, for sure.

Haha, I am honored! Thank you. :D

Well, congratulations! It may not be what you expected, but you can handle it. Just take each day as it comes, and remember that the two of you are a team; you're in this together.

Thank you very much! I may need to take it each minute as it comes. ;)

Oh my god, Natt, this is so exciting! Congratulations, and you are one kickass woman for the stance that you take on financial responsibilities in the household <3

Thanks so much, Pierian. It's a scary task, so I hope I can take some stress off him!

Wow, so - decision made! I've been wondering. Congratulations, and good luck to all three of you!

Many thanks to you. :)
