I'm 30, she's 26, we're unmarried but we've been together almost 6 years, we own a house and a car together. We're ready for this (as much as anyone can be), it's not entirely an accident.
I just found out last evening when she picked me up @ work. I went online to look at books...but man...there's like 80 billion of them.
So...recommend to me books. Recommend to me what kind of doctors we need to be seeing. Tell me about baby sign, tell me about decorating nurseries, about cloth versus disposable diapers...about whatever you want to tell me.
We're still really early, doctor estimates today is 5 weeks. We're not telling families and friends just yet---not because we're not thrilled but because we want it to be special. She's going to send her mom a mothers day card that says "Next year we'll both get cards!" and I'm going to tell my parents like this: "I've got a really great reason for you to finally quit smoking." "Why's that?" "Because I want you to be able to spend lots of time with your grandchild."
But yea, you don't care about all that. Yay for us. Just...yay. You can feel free to chide us about the married thing, we're discussing our options on that, too. I mean, it's going to happen, but we either hurry it for this summer or we wait until next spring. There are definite benefits for both.
