Funny That

I know of five couples who are expecting twins.
Two of these couples live far away and they are due this summer.
Over a month ago (longer?) I bought baby gifts for them and...meant to send them.
But I just didn't. Couldn't.
Today, I was able to write those cards, wrap those gifts and send them in the mail.
Funny how a BFP can change a simple act as this.

I'm trying to be nonchalant about everything and have decided I'm not going to go in for another beta until Monday.  I didn't even pee on a stick today.
For now, I'm going to try to just
be pregnant. I want to enjoy this and be happy and while yes, I'm scared that something bad could happen...mostly I don't think it will. I need to believe that.
I feel good about this. Really, really good.

You all left so many comments, well wishes and congratulations it humbled me. I had no idea so many of you were reading along (and those are just the ones who commented!). I know most of you through your blogs, but some of you had me scratching my head thinking "huh?! you're reading my blog?! fancy that!" Either way--thanks.
This blog has been one of the best decisions I've ever made and I hope you'll keep reading even though it's sure to change.

In fact, let's do this.  Since I really don't have much to say right now that isn't pregnancy related and yet nothing really to report--what do you want to hear?  What have you always wished that Puffer would blog about?  Any burning questions about the Chicken?  Life in NYC?  Traveling?  I'm game!  Ask away!

I'm so happy for you!!! I'm not sure when to test...my beta isn't until 6/26. But now I'm sure I'll be tempted to test at 6dp5dt! Congrats to you both!! :) :) :)

I like your style. Yes, just BE PREGNANT. Wonderful.

Here's a fun question... when do you plan to take your child(ren) on their first big overseas adventure? Have you thought about where you'd like to take them?

dryan said...

Hmmm... I like the question above about traveling with the baby (ies). Where is hands down your most favorite place? Oh, and maybe I've missed this in a post along the way but which borough do you guys live in in NYC? We've been there before for the marathon- what a cool place! So now I am curious where you and K spend the majority of your time :) Sorry I have a lot of questions!

Hopefully our little one on the way will get to travel as much as yours will! Take care and get good rest- you deserve it!

I love the Zen attitude....just BE pregnant. It is lovely and simple. Good plan.

In terms of writing about the pg---- do it! I always get sad when people get pg then get wayyyy quiet. I know that there are many reasons that happens but we need updates. :)

Top 10 things you plan to NEVER do as a parent. It will be fun to see if you hold true to these.
Top 10 things you absolutely WILL do as a parent.

Catching up...congratulations! SO glad this paid off. Wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months.

Can you give us a little bit more of what Chicken does for a living?? I have to admit I am super nosy about that!!

And how do you plan on recording the puffer-twins traveling adventures? Scrapbook? Journal? Photo Album??

Rachel said...

Oh my gosh! I just got back online after a week and - YAY! I am so happy and excited for you. Way to go Chicken knocking up the Pufferfish!

funny how a bfp can change your attitude overnight! :D

have you picked out names for your twins yet? (im still assuming you've got twins in there!)

Yay, questions are fun. I love to play FBI.

What are your 3 favorite restaurants?

If you could invent anything (regardless of whether or not the technology currently exists) what would it be?

If you could leave tomorrow for an all-expenses paid, week long vacation, where would you go?

I'm so excited for you both and like your attitude to "enjoy being pregnant" :-)
