If we're friends on Facebook, you may have already seen this. It's by far the biggest announcement I could possibly make, but right now the little one is less than three inches long! And (I admit it) already Tweeting.
(Hey, there's only so much I can do to entertain myself during pregnancy, since roller coasters and flip-cup are out of the question, okay? At least I'm imbuing the kid with a healthy dose of wholesome snark from an early gestational age. And it's healthier than wolfing down buttered pop tarts and watching Teen Mom reruns all evening.)
Anyway, in the interest of keeping internet-based pregnancy announcements fresh, I have decided to present the five most frequent ANSWERS I have given in recent days, Jeopardy!-style, in response to the most frequently asked, well-meaning questions. Answers (I mean, questions) follow.
A Pregnant Woman's Answers to FAQs:
A1. Yep, I really am!
A2. January 16.
A3. Yes, we'll find out at the end of August.
A4. Way better than I thought pregnant women were supposed to feel, thank you.
A5. At the moment we're partial to James Tiberius or Primrose Renesmee. Or Emma, if it's a girl.

So yes, our family will get bigger right around New Year's, and everybody's excited!
