Book Meme

Here you go, Hannah:

This is another meme from Cheryl, who tagged me. I love being tagged!

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

Good news, readers. Not only is this a fun meme, it's also a clever disguise for an announcement. Here is the passage:

"Your baby may be practicing breathing movements this week by moving his or her diaphragm in a repeating rhythm. These movements may even give your baby a case of hiccups. As your baby continues making these movements, you may occasionally notice a slight twitching in your uterus, like little spasms."

The book is Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy, which I'm reading because........

[dramatic pause]

.......I'm pregnant! Wow! Bet you didn't expect "thenewkeller" to take on a new meaning so soon! We're delighted and excited, and I'm especially glad that my fatigue is lifting. I'm about 12 weeks along, and my estimated due date is August 27. Yay!

So. Chew on that for a while, cyberworld! Good night!

ETA: Forgot to tag people: Erin, Anne, Sarah, Jessica, and...... I can't think of a fifth. K, bye!

Thank you!! I'm excited too! I'm not QUITE twelve weeks, so I won't really be second tri till next week, and a lot of people know already.... But I also had no idea I was pregnant till I was already six weeks along! So that made it easy not to let it slip--yay for blissfully ignorant drinking over the holidays (d'oh!). We do want to find out if it's a boy or girl; I'm too impatient to wait for the birth.

By the way, I meant to tag YOU in this meme. I should say pianomomsicle, since that name could not be mistaken for any other.

Yay, finally an announcement! (I was wondering when this news was going to make it on to your blog.)

We are so happy for you, although sorry that our favorite "Unter" will be sidelined for a while (but believe me, it's worth the sacrifice to see another Gavin-Keller running around . . . tell me, how long until we can sign him/her up for choir?)
