Top of the Boring Baby Book List so far:

What to Expect When You're Expecting


Top of the Entertaining As Well As Enlightening Baby Book List so far:

Pregnancy Sucks(which, according to the author, had it not been for the 2nd trimester, would have been called: "Pregnancy Really Sucks!")

All right, this simultaneous, parallel-posting stuff has gotta stop. RIGHT NOW!!

Jenny McCarthy wrote a book about her pregnancy. She's a comedienne (sp?!?) so i'm sure it's pretty funny. That pregnancy sucks book sounds funny. I'm no where near ready to have kids and my experience on OB/GYN made me never want to have kids. Seeing a 10 pound baby coming out of a woman has convinced me that perhaps intrauterine growth restriction isn't too bad of a problem afterall. after seeing that, I was thoroughly convinced that being drugged up is the way to go.

My wife enjoyed "The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy." I read some chapters and was entertained.

Tenors and Altos breed....::cue scary music with banshee screaming in the background::

SOPRANOS!

I get back from San Jose and what do I find? The cat has finally escaped the bag, mangled the bag, shredded the scraps, and nested on the shredded bag scraps.

I already predicted a treble. High treble. You don't have to call that "soprano" if you don't want to. It'll sound the same, by any name.

Next subject: what to expect from pregnancy.

1. Total strangers will smile at you.
2. All your friends had worse ones.
3. Your last several weeks will be awkward.

Everything else is negotiable. You get some of the stuff from those books (Pregnancy Sucks doesn't really describe mine) and you'll get some stuff that those there books never thought of, much less mentioned. And if you decide to manufacture an Altoid2, you'll find rule

4. It changes every time.

I look forward to meeting Altoid.

In that case, may I recommend acquiring professional assistance? And, perhaps, some specialized equipment?

My people call that a wife. :D

Congratulations OT and Piq! A fitting 2500 post announcement! I only hope I have the same announcement to make by post 2500... I may have to pace myself, though.

I knew someone would have to ask! :D

I wish it were the babies I had to pace, but no. :p Oh well, work always gets in the way of posting anyways, so if I aim for both, maybe I'll get lucky and get to both EVENTUALLY and at the same time. *laugh*

you've got 421 posts in ~ 1 year,
so to get to 2500 (at this pace), you'll need nearly 5 more years.
Good luck with the precision timing!

Men for some reason were created such that their gametes are always fresh while my gametes have been mutating and rotting away since the day I was born. Yep, I'm way off my family plan I created when I was 9. According to that plan I would have been married with at least 1 child by now in a nice big house with a couple of pets. Of course, that was when I was planning on being a paleontologist or elementary school science teacher. Oh well...
