Blogosphere Baby Making Madness

So did you think there were a lot of celebrity baby bumps in 2008, with lots of twins and some rather odd monikers!!?!?

Well celebrities ain’t got a patch on the blogosphere bunnies! Take a look at this list… these are already preggy bloggers who are due this year.

First up is Lunanik who is taking it very easy blogwise, and is due mid- to late April 2009. Then Tertia of the famous “So Close” is due in early June 2009. Heather AKA “Dooce” is due mid-June 2009 with her second baby. mommanats, who I am proud to say I met in real life late last year, is due in early July 2009 with kidlet #2 and Arkwife, who is a real life BlogGirls friend of mine, is due late July 2009 with her first!

That’s 5 blogosphere babies due in 2009! Take that, celebribabies!!!

And then there are a few other “trying to be preggy bloggers”- apart from myself and my Glugster that is.

AND a couple of my regular reads have hinted at their knowing about other bloggers being pregnant- but aren’t saying who they are… so brace yourselves bunnies!

Kai is a writer and gamer, and she’s about to head down this road. acidicice and her hubby suffered a dreadful loss last year, and I read about it with tears in my eyes (you can read about it there), we met them at a blog-meet in Cape Town and they’re really cool people! Tay is new to this game, and she and her Hottie are hard at work, heh heh! Phats is a newly wed, so he and his sweetheart are trying for their first child!

And last but not least, two couples- Dino and Grumpy, and Darla and Mr Darla (both of whom I’ve been reading for a really long time), have been working at it for a while and are sadly have had to resort to seeking various treatments.

That’s a lot of baby-making for one link list don’t you think (erm, I mean my link list of course)?

And erring on the side of being positive about the whole thing, my Glugster and I have already chosen names for our future kidlet! Is this a good thing? Are there superstitions attached to choosing names before you’re pregnant? I dunno- it’s going to be pretty much like starting over again for me with the knucklehead almost 18 years old and shaving!

Ooh, and I surprised myself in that we decided to go with family names- from his side! My knucklehead’s second name is a family name, but mine and my siblings’ names (besides my da Bruvva’s other names) are not family names at all. Family names were never a big “issue” for me, in fact I coulda given some celebrities a run for their money in terms of way-out names when I was still young and stupid thinking another baby may be a good idea.

So if we have a boy, he’ll be named after his father, and if we have a girl she’ll be named “Caitlin“, with my mother’s name for a second name. I think we’ve chosen really nice ones too if I say so myself.

Glugs and I have now started taking Fertiboost, and I’m taking Pregnavit, and we bought an ovulation microscope! I didn’t even know things like this existed until Glugs and I started talking about it. For obvious reasons, he’s done a lot more research than I have, but I’m catching up slowly… Its still a little scary to even consider the fact that I may not fall pregnant at all- I never even thought of this as a possibility for me. The women in my family were practically born to breed as my mother likes to say, and the fact that we’ve been trying for a while already with no result is quite incredible to me! I refuse to worry about it though, we’re not going to let it get to us!

Oh, and I forgot to add previously, that the knucklehead has no qualms about being a big brother… he has other stuff on his mind, like where to get more music for his iPOD, trying not to make his babe-spotting too obvious, and planning his 18th birthday party!

    Hope it happens fast!

  4. Wenchy says:

    All the best for making us all a baby!

  5. Kai says:

    Eh.
    We’re planning on it ‘eventually’. Married first which is two years away at this rate – so short of an accident or there’s a specific issue that means we’re reorganising our plans to make ‘it’ happen this year, then we’re not getting to. Not for my want of hoping though 😉

  6. The Jackson Files says:

    I want another baby toooooooooooo.

    It was great to see you again on the weekend.

  7. JaneW says:

    I actually dreamed I was 5 months pregnant last night. It was a bit weird and freaky!

    For the record I am neither pregnant, nor trying, nor intending to be pregnant this year. Ta.

    Good luck and enjoy to all those trying and/or currently pregnant. 🙂

  8. acidicice says:

    Pfft. I’m not in a baby making mood at the moment and I’m probably ovulating!!! I hate the thought of skipping a month of opportunity…

    I’m so freaking confused!

    I’m glad you’re staying positive about it and I hope that the obstacles in your way are swept aside with ease.

    I guess I’ll need to pray about it some more.

    Hi Angel why don’t you go check out http://www.getpregnant.co.za for some OPK’s and stuff. It’s my sister’s website, or just click on the link on my blog. Her and her hubby’s been trying for 6 years, and she knows alot about getting pregnant.
    BTW, I gave you an award on my blog, you haven’t checked it out yet!
