Pregnancy Q and A

(found right here)

Q: Should I have a baby after 35?
A: No, 35 children is enough.

(Unless of course, you are are striving to be like the Duggars!)

Q: I'm two months pregnant now. When will my baby move?
A: With any luck, right after he finishes college.

(I told Gary last night that I hope Kaishon never moves out.

He asked if I was smoking crack again.

Whatever.

Do I look skinny enough to be a crack smoker?

Exactly…)

Q: What is the most reliable method to determine a baby's sex?
A: Childbirth.

Q: My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she's borderline irrational.
A: So what's your question?

( I relate to this 100%)

Q: My childbirth instructor says it's not pain I'll feel during labor, but pressure. Is she right?
A: Yes, in the same way that a tornado might be called an air current.

Q: When is the best time to get an epidural?
A: Right after you find out you're pregnant.

Q: Is there any reason I have to be in the delivery room while my wife is in labor?
A: Not unless the word "alimony" means anything to you.

Q: Is there anything I should avoid while recovering from childbirth?
A: Yes, pregnancy.

Q: Do I have to have a baby shower?
A: Not if you change the baby's diaper very quickly.

Q: Our baby was born last week. When will my wife begin to feel and act normal again?
A: When the kids are in college.

I've read these before, still funny! Love the baby picture!

Mari said...

So funny! About the last one - I don't think we are ever normal again!

Lori said...

I love babies/children of all ages...if I wouldn't have gotten so sick for the whole 9 months, I would have had more children and if I would have had the money I would have adopted some...I know I really am crazy. :) Thanks for the smiles! :) XX Lori

Anita Johnson said...

Very, very funny. Love that photo too. Someone wrote a comment on my blog and asked if I was a SAHM (Stay at home mom). I said yes, but my kids are 22 and 25 and don't live here anymore. I'm not sure what to call myself now...old? I'm going to go with "blessed"...motherhood was such a privilege!

Tracey said...

You are so funny. I love when you post stuff like this!
That baby is ADORABLE! My baby fever just reached an all new high after looking at this beautiful picture! My hubby thanks you. :0)

June Freaking Cleaver said...

If all the babies always looked like the baby in the pic, we'd all want 1 or 36...funny stuff.

And you are almost ready for them to go when they move out - that's why they're horrible during adolescence, so you'll be ready to bid them a fond farewell.

Marilyn said...

Hilarious. And it isn't an empty nest until they get their stuff out of the garage. Ours is STILL full.

Love Letters To China said...

What a gorgeous baby! If I had to look at that beautiful face all day long, I'd want another one too! Thank you for putting a great, big smile on my face while reading this post. It's so funny, yet true.

Lisa said...

Ami said...

Sweet baby picture.

Do we ever return to 'normal'? I don't think so. I think we discover a new normal and try to go on and seem like we're not crazy.

:)
