Big News

I'm not really sure how to bring this up. Stinger's strategy has been to wait until it comes up in conversation, then share. I'm more of an announcement maker, I think. Take the guesswork out of it. So here goes.

I'm pregnant!

That's right, sometime around the middle of February, Stinger and I will be welcoming a new little member of our family into the McStarter Castle of Love. Our next ultrasound is a week from today, and hell yes we're finding out the sex. I don't honestly understand people who say they want to wait and be surprised. It's a surprise either way! It's not like if you find out early you get to choose! Plus, I'm finding plenty to stress about without adding another question mark to the equation. Like, for instance, getting enough writing done now to be able to take some time off early next year. Actually, the pregnancy has been wicked motivation--my plan is to write the first two books on the contract before February, which would put me way ahead of deadline.

I promise this won't become The Pregnancy Blog, because seriously, I get tired of talking about it. But I'll give updates when something fun happens. So far, it hasn't been bad at all; I'm part of the teeny minority of women who didn't have any morning sickness during the first trimester, and now that I'm in the second, my biggest concern is my expanding waistline. Mostly, I'm enjoying the process, and very much enjoying talking with my friends who've been there about the whole experience. Feel free to share your story! I need all the advice I can get.


Congratulations. Pregnancy can be the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows...

I hope that you stay in the High end.

Thank my lucky kittens you're not going to turn this into The Pregnancy Blog. Because then I'd get morning sickness. ;o)

Can't wait to find out if it's a girl or a cave dweller!

Mozel tov and congrats! Fan-frickin-tabulous news.

I can't wait to find out if Baby Louisa is an XX or an XY. Either way, he/she will still be Baby Louisa until they have a name. And I'm so glad you're feeling well!!

Yes. I'm thinking Galahad if it's a boy, and Hortense if it's a girl.

Beautiful, right?

Congrats Louisa.

Congratulations! What wonderful news! Enjoy every minute of it - it goes by fast! Do you have any funky food cravings?

I craved milk in the first trimester, and now it's all about the grapefruit juice. Apparently, the baby thinks I should be on an all-liquid diet!

That's freakin' FANTASTIC! I love babies, baby pictures, baby stories..I don't think I'll ever get sick of hearing about it. Coming from a big family, we love hearing about the stork paying a visit.

I'm really happy for you!!!!!

Congratulations, Louisa! I loved being pregnant!

Fabulous news, Louisa!!!

Congratulations! :)

Thanks for all the congrats, everyone! I'm sure it's going to be a wild ride.

Holy Crap Batman!! Major Congrats!!! Big Hug. I'm so happy for you. Much love to you and Stinger. Maybe you shouldn't read my blog since it's all anti kid and all:) But I'm really pro baby just anti teen and you don't have to worry about that for all looooong time.

I'm so jealous of you not being sick. You're so lucky. Enjoy every minute. Pretend to be sick some days. Why not? When the baby comes you'll be on roller skates.

CONGRATS LOUISA! That's amazing news. Wow, what a big year for you!

Sorry, I don't have any suggestions, never been pregnant. But I would totally find out the sex. Why wait and I hate yellow.
