a long adieu to my body as i know it


the beginning of the end of my figure
Originally uploaded by rainsinger.

So Z and I decided to ruin our perfectly happy lives and bank balances by creating life. (And lo! life was created, and is due to inflict itself upon the world in December)

I'm fairly excited about it all, aside from the narcolepsy. (Furthermore: no periods for a long time =f'''ing sweet)

These developments shall be blogged about on typepad, so as to spare the delicate sensibilities of those who couldn't care less about all the ways in which my body and my mind will go batshit over the next year.



Edit Wow, I'm really touched by the comments! I never realised that my flist was such an excitable, baby loving bunch. x

Thank you :)

I'm very bouncy about it all when I'm not going 'sleep, oh god, just let me lie down and sleep'

Well, that didn't take long, you fertility goddess! Congrats, let me know if I can tell you anything about nappies.

Z is all : "I plant watercress in the garden! I plant grass! I plant peppers and tomatoes! I plant babies! I am The Great Nurturer! I am Creator! Bask in my Gardening and Life Giving Prowess"

Have you used cloth nappies? Will they make me cry?

I can't think of anyone else I'd rather have as my mother. Besides, like, my actual mother, obv.

Congrats :) x

I'm truly moved, although you may not know that my designs for my children include seeing how many tricks I can teach them before nursery.

On the other hand if I have a daughter as clever and outspoken as you, I shall be chuffed indeed.

Hurrah! I feel a level of happiness that's probably inappropriate for 'just a internet friend'. Oh well.
Hurrah again!

That's wonderful news! Congratulations!

I, for one, look forward to any future posts about it.

Aww, thank you!

I think any locked stuff pertaining to babies will stay here, but more generic stuff is likely to gravitate to my semi-neglected other blog www.ooohshiny.typepad.com (there's an RSS feed of it to LJ somewhere)

Thank you very much! :)

Although a miffed part of me suspects this is all some kind of conspiracy to put on hold my sushi and cocktail plans with you.

I am filled with hope that one day my child will also feed me biscuits.
Or at least be trained to mop floors while learning to crawl.

OMG! Woah...you'll be a totally hot mom though and a great one! Make sure to speak lots of Ruskie to the kid!
rainsinger
Apr. 23rd, 2007 03:29 pm (UTC)
Awww thank you!
Z is worried about confusing our child with too many languages and cultural identities, although it didn't harm me perceptibly. Perhaps if i play my cards right I can lead my child to believe that Russian is my secret language that I invented!

You say that now, although if one day they're all like "Let us use the oppressed Balkan genes and bitter pasts of our parents to make WORLD DOMINATION" perhaps you could give them pointers.

Capricorn, I reckon (it's due on the 28th of December) - unless it defies the entirety of its genetic heritage and turns up early to something.

Frankly, I think you should insert a gratuitous baby pic into every comment
Morgan's gorgeous. I especially love her eyes.

Just in time for Christmas. I think you may have to take up orthodoxy with a vengeance, in order to give your wallet time to recover *grin*

Or I could trick my child into beliving that ALL children receive confetti and a rice-shaker on their birthdays... ;)

How wrong would it be to make people give me presents on my kid's birthday? ;)

OH NINA! CONGRATS! OH WOW! :) You should use your free reading you still have with me for the baby!
rainsinger
Apr. 23rd, 2007 04:10 pm (UTC)
Thank you :)

I was really hoping to use the reading for the baby, especially considering the fact that this kid is likely to be born with a Sun-Jupiter-Pluto conjunction and I feel like I'll probably really need the guidance. :)
