The genetics experiment begins!

So! The secret is OUT. Brian and I have begun a little genetics experiment of our own, and its due on December 17! Thats right people, your blogger is preggers. Twelve weeks pregnant, in fact. How crazy is that? So crazy. Brian prefers to think of this as 'taking back the colonies for England, one baby at a time'. Either way, we're both dorks.

Still, even 12 weeks in, I can hardly tell I am pregnant. Not a whiff of morning sickness to be had. Its awesome. One morning right after we found out I did gag at the smell of raw eggs. And this weekend I totally threw up cranberry juice on the kitchen floor - although that was precipitated largely by coughing. Also, brushing my teeth has not yet failed to set off the gag reflex, which I don't really get. I mean, minty goodness! Come on! I'm shocked, actually. I am like the queen mother of digestive system ills, so I figured I'd be KNOCKED OUT with sickness. Hurrah for me!

(Ladies who were majorly sick - don't worry, I expect that I'll suffer with something else soon enough!)

My parents are of course super thrilled, as I'm the first in the family to procreate. Now they're busily trying to think of what they want to be called by their grandchildren. My father got the ball rolling with 'Sky King'. Actually, he was between 'Sky King' and something else that I can't think of now. I'm sure my mom can leave it in the comments section. My mom is thinking of 'Queen Mum'. Our children will have a hard time finding cards for their grandparents that say 'Happy Birthday Sky King, from your grandchild'. I guess they'll have to make their own.

The biggest bummer so far is the lack of wine. This is also of course the biggest giveaway. I got totally caught by one of my friends when I volunteered to drive to the beer festival, because that is completely unlike me. As far as beer goes, I get to drink the occasional O'Douls which, yeah. It sucks. But its passable.

Anyhow, thats our news! Yay us!

UPDATED: I asked my mom, and the other name my dad was thinking of wasa 'Pinball Wizard'. I don't know how that slipped my mind.

Ah, I was wondering about that beer festival. And O'Douls? Why not just drink water?
