No I'm NOT in labor yet.

No, I don't have a name to share yet.

I will add, "No, I can't tell you when he will arrive to make your travel easier to plan" and "No, I can't tell you if he will be here during the days you have already planned for your convenience".

We are calling the baby CornHolio right now & you should SEE the horrified looks we are getting . It makes me laugh so hard I almost pee my pants.

Surprisingly enough the one comment I am getting alot is "you are so active when you are pregnant, shouldn't you be resting??" What am I am supposed to do--sit on my hiney until I give birth??

We're constantly getting the name thing too so I say if it's a boy he'll be "Tungsten Carbide".

They get really quiet because they're not sure if we're joking!

Ugh. We started telling people we're shooting for ten, but the closer we get to ten we've realized we need to up the number. Maybe we'll start saying we're trying to catch the Duggers? Is it really any of their business? Really?

When people asked my sister and her dh if their children were planned he'd say, "We planned to have sex that night." That shut most everyone up.

You know what drives me freaking insane?

"Oh, you'll have one of each. That's perfect." As if having just my daughter or two daughters or a million daughters is a bad thing.

My newest comment:

"How long are 'they' going to 'let' you go??"

I swear, the next person to ask that is getting punched.

"Have the names changed???"

Just because you don't like the names we've picked, doesn't mean that they are going to change... Nice try though.

We do tell people that we will allow them to name our children in exchange for college tuition. 4 years of room and board gets you first and middle name, 2 years just gets you middle.

My mom asked me the other day if I was feeling like it was time yet - I said no. She said "what does the doctor think?" I so wanted to say "Oh, you mean the one with the crystal ball?" Bozo.

I really want to know who "they" of the "they say" fame are...

At this point, I don't get out much, but the people I do interact with seem slightly horrified that I made it beyond 40 weeks. They are absolutely convinced that twins should be born between 36 and 38 weeks and that I should rush myself to the hospital for a touch of pitocin. I hear "you seem to be fine, but for the babies' sake, you should get them out!"

The other one that always gets me is "Twins! How lucky! You'll be all done in one shot!" Who ever said I was done after this?

"Are you in labor yet? Are you in labor yet? Are you in labor yet? Are you in labor yet?"

I'm going to put an outgoing message on my answering machine that's a parrot's voice saying, "Nope, not in labor! Nope, not in labor!" Or "Don't call me, I'll call you!"

I LOVE that website, btw. Thanks for posting, Payton Place.

My grandmother calls daily, asking 'what does the doctor think?' I say, 'who cares? she's not psychic and she's not pregnant, I AM!'
