Pregnancy Q&A

Sarah’s baby shower is tomorrow, and I’m sure she’s going to be bombarded with question after question, many of which will be repeats. Since I’ve been hit up with a repetitive series of questions myself, it got me thinking … I should put together my own list of frequently asked questions and responses in regards to the pregnancy. So without further introduction, here is the official Q&A:

Q: Are you and Sarah having a boy or girl?
A: You do live on this planet, right? I have told you several times already. We are having a boy. Please don’t forget. It’s a simple fact, and it’s one that tries my nerves when I must repeat it.

Q: Have you picked a name yet?
A: Are you sure this isn’t the fourth time you’ve asked me this question? Well, in case I haven’t told you before, my standard response is, “We have not picked a name, though we’ve narrowed the list down. And even when we do finally pick a name, we plan on keeping it a secret until the delivery.”

Q: Come on, man. You can be serious about not sharing the name with me, can you?
A: Yes, my friend, I am being extremely serious. Think about my face right now (close your eyes, it’s easy) and now imagine it with the most serious expression you can think of. That’s the look I’m giving you right now.

Q: Can you at least tell me some of the names you are considering?
A: Again, the answer is no. You are starting to drive me nuts. but to calm you down, here are a few of the names we are NOT considering as they have been eliminated from our massive list: Fletcher, Wallace, Chester, Ernest, Caleb and Aiden. Oh yeah, and we also ruled out Michael Christian Cunniff Jr. Lopinot and Robert Jason Bergfeld Jr. Lopinot. We were thinking about claiming those names so my friends couldn’t use them.

Q: When’s the due date?
A: The official due date is March 13. However, our doctor doesn’t want Sarah to go past 39 weeks, so it’ll be at least a week earlier than that.

Q: How’s Sarah feeling?
A: Am I chopped liver? Have you no concerns for my feelings? Am I already relegated to a back seat? Well, Sarah’s feeling fine. Every once in a while the baby gives a big kick, but he’s been pretty well behaved.

Q: So Sarah’s not experiencing morning sickness anymore?
A: Again, I’ve answered this question a million times. As I told you on all those previous occasions, she hasn’t had those feelings for at least five months. And even then, it wasn’t that bad.

Q: Are you ready to be a dad?
A: No.

Q: Are you excited?
A: Yes, very much so.

Q: Are you going to have more kids?
A: Please, please, please. Let’s get through this first delivery before we start up on that subject.

Q: Is Sarah going to go back to work or is she going to be a stay-at-home mom?
A: Do you want to pay our mortgage? Do you have special seeds we can plant out back to grow a money tree? This isn’t 1950, and I’m not some rich dude. The wife will be working again.

Q: What are you going to do about childcare?
A: Procrastinate, most likely, and then panic when we realize we only have a few weeks left to make a decision. At least Sarah’s mom has agreed to take our son for a few days a week. We just need to find childcare for 1-3 days a week.

Well, that officially wraps up this Q&A. If you have additional questions, please leave a comment or send me an e-mail. If there are enough responses, or we get bombarded by new questions in our daily lives, I may do this again soon.
