So, I told my parents. I figured I'd tell my mom at her happy place... Fashion Bug. Actually, I let my 8 y/o daughter tell her. My mom was looking at clothes, and my daughter told her there was something she wanted her to buy for me. So, DD dragged my mom over to the maternity clothes. My mom looked at my daughter and said "But, it's maternity..." and then she spun around, looked at me, and burst into tears, and hugged me. Then she yelled "I KNEW IT! I TOLD YOUR FATHER YOU WERE PREGNANT!" My father came into the store a few minutes later, because my brother called their cell phone, and he handed the phone off to my dad. I told my dad "Never question the unfaulting wisdom of your wife." "Huh?" "She said she told you something earlier this week, and she was right." "You're pregnant?" "Yup."
Mind you my parents haven't seen me since before I got pregnant. My mother said her mother's intuition had been ringing off the hook. She said it's a girl. We shall see.
Last week she also had a premonition that my brother was going to Baghdad. He left Mozul the other day, and he is in fact over in Baghdad now.
Oh, and of course my parents met the daddy to be. Unfortunately, he had been to a party the night before, and had drunk pretty heavily. He normally doesn't drink at all. I think the last time he had a drink was 3 months ago. But last night he got trashed, and didn't go to sleep until 11am this morning, and we picked him up to go out for dinner at 4pm. Needless to say he was looking pretty rough, and he wasn't as impressive as he would normally be. Plus the fact that he has a REALLY deep voice, and my father is mostly deaf doesn't help communication. But, there's no reason for them to not like him, besides the fact that he knocked up their baby girl, and he was hung over upon first meeting. Hahahahaha!
