So… that’s going to happen about June 30. Wowza.
Baby Day-Burget, 11 Weeks
Q: How far along are you?
13 weeks, today. Last week, I said au revoir to the suck of Trimester 1. Thank god.
Q: Are you going to find out the sex?
No. 9 months worth of speculation is so much more enjoyable, don’t you think?
Q: Are you going to share your names with us?
No. You might ruin them for us with your raised eyebrows or casual “Oh, that’s different.” comments -and since there are like three names in the entire universe we both like, that would be a huge problem.
Q: Will it have a family name?
Very unlikely, but if so, a middle name at most.
Q: What will its last name be?
Day-Burget. It’s half Day and half Burget and thus it gets …at little bit of each of us. It can change it when it’s 18 if it hates it that badly. I don’t think it will care though b/c Day-Burget gives it some international flare – like Oscar De La Hoya… see? I plan for it to be an excellent global citizen and this is a step in the right direction.
Q: How big is its head? It looks enormous!
It IS enormous. At the time this sonogram was taken (11 weeks), the head was half the size of it! I’m hoping that it will shrink down some, though Cousin Eric reminded me that all movie stars and CEO’s have big heads. So true, Cousin. So true.
Q: Are you scared for THE BIG DAY?
I think I’d be insane not to be but at this point, I’m choosing not to really think about it. I’m just recovering from several weeks of nausea and general horribleness… I can’t yet come to terms with what is going to happen to my poor, poor, poor body.
Q: Do you think it will be a boy or a girl?
The Chinese Calendar, which claims to be 90% accurate says it will be a girl. I crave sweets, which Old Wives seem to think means it’s a girl.I was only mildly sick which means… depending on your source, could mean either. My hair tied to my wedding band hanging over my belly (yes I did this) went in circles. Which means its a girl.
On the other hand, I have a strong inkling that it’s a boy and so does Tom Shrimpton who is fabled to be an excellent predictor of baby gender. My skin remains clear which Old Wives say means it’s a boy.
So, it’s 50:50 at this point. Go figure.
