Surprise!

Surprise!

I tried to get him to balance it on his head, and he explained to me that disemboweling came more naturally.

And in spite of myself, I had to agree with his point that disembowelment was more symbolically suited to my blogging voice than namby-pamby head balancing anyway.

I’m about six weeks along. And before you ask, yes: I had been planning on not writing about this until things were “safer,” or at least until I had an ultrasound. But not talking about it is difficult for me, particularly whilst doing things like eating a dozen deviled eggs (I hate eggs) and subsequently vomiting them up. So, welcome to the roller coaster ride, kids! If things go well, we’ve got about 34 more weeks of this crap.

    OMG CONGRATS!!!! I am so happy for you!

  2. Feb 6, 2011

    Yay, baby! Just think you can write about every little burp for fun and profit; I hear there’s a niche for that…but seriously, congratulations on little baby Paige(views)!

  3. Feb 6, 2011

    CONGRATS Anna! That is incredible news!

  4. Feb 6, 2011

    Congratulations, Anna! Now you will have to come up with a baby nickname that is smaller than Mini. Would Nano be too Apple-y? I kid, I kid.

  5. Feb 6, 2011

    Congrats Anna! I’m thrilled for you–minus that throwing up deviled eggs thing. Another little rabble-rouser on the way!

  6. Feb 6, 2011

    Aw man, so freaking happy for you. Congrats!

  7. Feb 6, 2011

    Oh oh oh!! I am so pleased for you. So pleased!

    Congratulations and fingers crossed for an easy ride through the next 34 weeks. x

    Whoa! I saw on twitter and rushed right over. Congratulations!!

    Just remember cats will steal a baby’s breath.

    Hey, congratulations! What great news. 🙂

    Congratulations!

    Saw the “Surprise” on Twitter, clicked expecting to see a positive test … only to first see a cat. After putting my glasses on, I realised it was a cat with a positive test.

    Here’s hoping the next 34 weeks involve a lot less deviled eggs than the first 6 and way less vomit. Congratulations to you and Mr. Right-Click

    Congrats!

    Anna, congratulations! I know you and Mr. Right Click must be very happy, despite the deviled-eggs and vomiting. It would have been funny to see that strip balanced on Chum Chum’s head.

  15. Deviled eggs are fantastic, so it’s a shame you had to toss them up, but when you consider the root cause, it’s totally worth it! Congratulations to you!!

    Congratulations, Anna. Very happy for you. I wish you the best!

  18. Feb 6, 2011

    HAHAHAHA, you got the cat to pose with it. I love this. Congratulations again!

    SHIT, I love deviled eggs. Now I want some.

  19. Feb 6, 2011

    Congratulations! How exciting! I hope the vomiting stops soon.

  20. Feb 6, 2011

    Congratulations! That’s great news!!

  21. Feb 6, 2011

    Congratulations!!!

  22. Feb 6, 2011

    Congratulations Anna and family! That’s wonderful news, hope the pregnancy and smooth and gentle on you.

    WHAT? Why I am always the last one to know everything in our house? How did this happen? Oh yea…:) Good advice about my stopping those hot baths. Hoping for a girl but even a hermaphrodite would be fine. I am not sure why the name Cheremoya isn’t on the list. I wonder what the over under is for poopy diapers. I’m gonna take a nap now. Goodness!

  24. Feb 6, 2011

    Congrats Anna — such great news!!

  25. Feb 6, 2011

    Because we are not naming our child after a fruit or any other inanimate object. Who am I, Gwyneth Paltrow? No freaky ass names. That’s final.

  26. Feb 6, 2011

    Congrats!

  27. Feb 6, 2011

    Maybe Nano is perfect . . . just think of the product placement possibilities! Little Nano Right-Click is chugging along just fine . . .

  28. Feb 6, 2011

    Thanks, Brittany! I’m a little concerned about my sanity in deciding to go through this again, but I’ll get over it I suppose.

  29. Feb 6, 2011

    Hah! Can you imagine explaining that to people? So, how did you come up with the name Paige? Well, I have this theory about traffic and pregnancy announcements . . .

  30. Feb 6, 2011

    A million congrats Anna and family.

  31. Congratulations!!!!! So happy for you!!

  32. Feb 6, 2011

    Congratulations, Right-Clicks! Thrilled at this news.

    Congratulations Anna! I’ve been lurking around here for years and am a BIG fan, just thought I’d say hi!

  37. Feb 6, 2011

    Wow! Congratulations!

  38. Feb 6, 2011

    Yay! Congratulations!!!

  39. Feb 6, 2011

    Congratulations, Anna!

  40. Feb 6, 2011

    YAY!! Congratulations! And I love the Nano idea. Perfect!

    Congrats Anna!

  43. Feb 7, 2011

    Hooray! Congratulations!

  44. Feb 7, 2011

    Awesome news! Congratulations.
    I hope Mini will be as welcoming to the new addition, as my 3 year old son has been to his baby sister.

  45. Feb 7, 2011

    Now that I re-read that comment it sounds a bit sinister, but really all I wanted to say is that for me, personally, the amazing sibling relationship has been one of the mst unexpected and best bits of having two. I hope first-trimester woes abate soon. To this day nothing nauseates me quite so much a sginger candies that people kept shoving at me as quesiness remedies.

    A huge congrats!

  48. Feb 7, 2011

    Hey! That’s awesome. 🙂 Here’s to 34 uneventful weeks!

  49. Feb 7, 2011

    I was all set to have fun thinking up the blog-name for this baby, but Paige(Views) is better than anything I could have come up with.

  50. Feb 7, 2011

    ALL RIGHT!

    Feb 7, 2011

    Congratulations!!

  52. Wonderful news!!!! Congrats to you, Mr. Right Click & Mini.

  53. Feb 7, 2011

    YAY! Congratulations!

    Mini Part Deux: The Reckoning.

    This is going to be great!

  54. Feb 7, 2011

    Congratulations to you all! I’m wishing you an uneventful 34 weeks (other than the basketball-sized midsection and total justification of daily waffles of course).

  55. Feb 7, 2011

    That’s awesome. Congrats, Anna!

  56. Feb 7, 2011

    Congratulations! 2011 is for sure the year of TEH BABIES!!!!!11!1!

  57. Feb 7, 2011

    Congratulations. And I love that you had the cat play with the pee stick.

    Continued good luck.

  58. Feb 7, 2011

    Congratulations, Anna!

  59. Feb 7, 2011

    Congrats Anna!!

  60. Feb 7, 2011

    Congratulations, Anna – how exciting! Now get to exploiting that fetus for all he/she is worth!

  61. Feb 7, 2011

    Really excited for you! — and here’s to a break from the pukes.

  62. Congratulations to you and Mr. Right Click! What about bit.ly as a nickname? Great for tracking purposes. 😀

  63. Feb 7, 2011

    wonderful news, anna! congrats 😀

  64. Feb 7, 2011

    Very exciting! Congratulations! I found the nausea was much less for my second pregnancy than my first. I hope you have smooth sailing, and digestion, for the duration.

  65. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I will never forget that we discussed ovulation the first time we met. What a funny topic. I’m so happy for you!

  66. Feb 7, 2011

    Congratulations! What great news! I understand on the telling people early thing too – it’s hard for me to keep mum about stuff as well.

    Feb 7, 2011

    S’wonderful! S’marvelous! (don’t know why that song came into my head, but it did and it fits the bill)

  68. Feb 7, 2011

    Congratulations! I hope soon you can keep your eggs down.

  69. Feb 7, 2011

    Great news, congratulations! Fingers crossed for less vomiting.

  70. Feb 7, 2011

    Gratz on your BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY! Please add a healthy dose of sarcasm there. I’m at 31 weeks here with baby #2, and it’s been awful, so lots of sympathy for the next few months from my little corner of the internt to yours!

    Once you are obviously pregnant to the world at large, if any pretty, skinny, perfect mommas get all glassy eyed looking at your bump and tell you just how much they loooooooved being pregnant, you have my permission to punch them in the face.

  71. Feb 7, 2011

    Oh, man, I just realized how awful that previous comment of mine sounds. I meant sarcasm about the BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY bullshit, not about the congratulations!! Sorry!

    Congratulations, again. Babies are awesome, even if pregnancy itself is not!

  72. Feb 7, 2011

    Congrats on the addition to your family.

  73. Feb 7, 2011

    YAAAAAAAAYYYYY!

    Awesome! Congratulations! New strategies for monetizing pregnancy on the horizon? Hahaha.

  75. Feb 9, 2011

    Congratulations!
