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
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!
