As folks who know us may have heard, my lovely wife (pictured) and I are about to become parents. Not that it’s really sunk in or anything, but I imagine it will some time this week, as, well, we’re due and the doctors aren’t too keen on the idea of letting the baby just chill until she’s good and ready..
- Do you know if it’ll be a boy or a girl?
It’s a girl, unless of course modern science has totally failed in its predictive powers.
- Have you got a name yet?
We’ve got a list, but we haven’t decided and we’re not telling. We figure if the gender isn’t going to be a surprise for anyone, you’ll just have to wait to see what we have in store.
- Has Margaret had/done X (where X is some horrible pregnancy related thing that lots of mothers-to-be have)?
No, knock on wood/vaneer/whatever, this has been a remarkably trouble-free pregnancy. Either that, or Margaret is really doing a good job covering. Or maybe I’m an idiot (more likely than her “covering” per se). But as far as my admittedly limited guy-insight on the subject can see, there hasn’t been many problems.
So there you have it. Watch this space…I’ll try to post the update here when there’s more than just a bump.
