We Now Continue Our Program...

Oh, hi! Remember me? I'm your friendly knocked up blogger. That's right, a little over 4 months after the last false alarm, I have finally managed to convince the Clearblue Digital that I am, in fact, pregnant.

I'm in the midst of moving, so I figured the exhaustion was due to all the packing and unpacking and move this box here and the "Where the FUCK is the ...??" But then the tired didn't go away, and the PMS didn't start. And four different brands of pregnancy test showed positive. I was afraid to consult the Magic 8 Ball that is the Clearblue Digital Pregnancy test, aka the Most Sophisticated Piece of technology I've Ever Pee'd On.

I finally bit the bullet after work today. Now, the crappy camera on my cell phone doesn't show it clearly, but I assure you that does in fact read: Pregnant.

Why Life with a Parasite?

Let's look at the definition of a parasite:
par·a·site [par-uh-sahyt] organism that lives on or in an organism of another species, known as the host, from the body of which it obtains nutriment.

For the next 8 months (estimated date of delivery, April 21, 2009), a little ball of cells (The Parasite) will live in or on me (The Host) and obtain nutriment. I'll let you all know how that works out for me.

I'm so happy you shared this 4 year old post with us! I love it. I love now that you are the Host and she is the parasite. How cute are you?♥

Heheh... my niece has always referred to babies in the making as "parasites" for the very reason you posted. When she first said that to me, the look on my face must have said that I disproved, or was shocked, I am not sure which. She matter-of-factly told me that it was just the truth. After reading the definition, I accepted that she was indeed correct... I had never heard another refer to it that way, until you. ;-)

Love this! And we all know just how beautifully the parasite turned out!

'cept it's the same species... (i hope)... so not a parasite. :)
