Real Life: News  
So, hi, y'all. I'm pregnant. (Twelve weeks, due at the beginning of June, we don't know the sex yet. Judging from the ultrasound, I would say it is an alien implanted in my uterus by devious means. However, unless we make some major, speedy advances in space travel, it will probably be born on this planet, so I choose to think of it as a future earthling. Crazy optimism, I know.) This could occasion some posting on real-life topics from me, which I know is not what most of you are here for. So, I will be creating a filter. It's opt-in; you don't have to say anything if you don't want on.

Posts to the filter could be frequent. They could be short. They could be unfunny. They could be extremely boring. They could be non-existent. They could be excessively personal or contain mention of bodily fluids. I have no way to tell, because this is new territory for me.

So, keeping that in mind, do you want on the filter? A handy poll is provided for your clicking convenience!

Poll #1097994 Future Earthling Filter Opt-in

Congratulations! ::hugs::

It's a very exciting experience; not always fun exactly, no, heheh, but profound, definitely. I did it twice, so that says it all :-)

Thank you!

My sister also did it twice, even though after her first pregnancy and delivery we all thought she'd sooner have her head removed, so it must have something going for it. So far, for me, everything's been fine - I'm not even sick - but I know the hard part comes later.

Congratulations :)

Only caveat to the "sign me up" is that some of us read from work, so please put stuff including, for example, excess body fluids behind a cut? :)

Thank you!

Yup, I will cut things that are excessively graphic or gooshy. I try to remember people may be working. Or snacking. Or otherwise not necessarily up for a full-scale ickfest. (Although, wow, if you read from work, don't my normal journal entries cause you problems? I do kind of swear a lot.)

Congratulations! Were you planning for this? (No need to answer if you don't want!)
Mara: Stealth Babymarag on November 30th, 2007 07:04 pm (UTC)
I absolutely should not laugh at you, because it's not polite when you're obviously missing an important piece of information. So consider it just a minor snicker.

Then let me assure you that pretty much the only way for TFV to get pregnant would be due to planning. Lots of planning.

Thank you!

And I hope they'll be at least interesting, but I can't promise anything. Thank you for wanting to take the ride with me!
