Not Me Monday & THE Big News



Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have NOT been doing this week.

So I have NOT spent all weekend trying to decide how to break the big news on my blog...not me!

The Irishman did NOT assist with some pretty goofy ideas of his own.

We did NOT talk about posting this picture that I have NOT kept hidden in a folder on the computer called "Top Secret":


(I did NOT rotate this picture three times this morning before giving up and deciding you can just turn your head to read it!)

We did NOT talk about using this picture that I sent to family and friends:


The Irishman did NOT come up with a million Liverpool references to announce our arrival. (There was NOT a "Baby Fernando is on the way" comment made a million times this weekend. Fernando is NOT the name of the Liverpool's legendary Spanish striker.)

This was NOT the topic of discussion Saturday night when we did NOT take our new car out for date night. (A date night on which we we did NOT get all dressed up and most certainly did NOT use a $5 restaurant coupon and free movie passes...we are NOT cheap like that!)

I am NOT behind in answering all the wonderful congratulations e-mails. I am NOT hoping that most people will read my blog instead and know that I appreciate their kind words. NOT ME!


So, here it is:
I AM 13 weeks pregnant with our first child.

(There...I did NOT finally say it!)

Rachel said...

Congratulations, Jenny! We are so happy for you, and will be praying for you as you start this new journey. How are you feeling (or I guess the better question is how were you feeling....you're almost done with the worst part! -- that's great)?

MN Mom said...

So NOT happy that I can just finally yell this from the roof tops....CONGRATULATIONS!
Now here come the questions: Are you going to find out the sex? And Share it? Are you going to share the name you pick? Is it going to be an Irish name? (All the best names are Irish...what's with that?)
You did a good job Irishman--now it's up to Mommy.

Congrats!! How exciting!!! And what a clever way to tell your blogging friends. I was just thinking about how 2 years ago I told my family on mother's day I was pregnant, then a week later found out it was twins. You've had your first Ultrasound right?

Mama Bonn said...

I'm new to your blog, found you through MckMama's NMM post.

Congratulations!!!

Jessi said...

Oh boy, how exciting! Congratulations! Let me know if you have any questions about anything.

Hope you're feeling ok (and you'll get that question a lot).

Soliloquy said...

Now you've gone and done it.....

Voluntarily given up any hope for sanity for the remainder of your live long years......

Good thing IT'S WORTH IT!!!

Congrats!!!

Are we finding out the sex????
