Can You Get Pregnant from Blogging?

It's a reasonable question. I'm always reading about bloggers getting pregnant, being pregnant, or giving birth. That is why I have to wonder if blogging has anything to do with the morning sickness that I've been dealing with for the past six weeks or so. Yup, it's official. I'm at the 11-week mark. I saw my doctor for the first time yesterday, and he confirmed that there was in fact a good reason for my pukeyness. I did do a home test over a month ago, but I still worried that the ultrasound would reveal that the test was wrong. Nope. There really is a fetus in there, and only one, which satisfied another concern of mine. I broke this news to a group of bloggers when I crashed the MBT pub night last night, so I figured I'd out myself to the rest of the blogosphere today. Think about this - I had to go through the whole NaBloPoMo episode without mentioning my news, which was really quite a challenge on those days when I had nothing of any consequence to post about. So this should give me some fodder for the next little while. I'll try to keep the puke stories down to a minimum, but hopefully I'm almost past that part of the pregnancy. I haven't been ill since last Friday when I considered trying to make some potato latkes. Maybe I'll hold off on that until next year.

Congrats again! It was great meeting you.

Delurking to say Contrats! I really hope you are right. Since my hubby is being stubborn on the whole "one more child" thing, maybe the blogosphere can come to aid! ;)

Oh, what lovely news!! Congratulations!!! I can't believe you kept it a secret that long... it nearly killed me to wait four hours so my husband could find out before I told the Interwebs!

Holy crap - congratulations!! What amazing news (and I'm really starting to believe that blogging can cause pregnancy).

And I should have crashed the MBT party - what a fantastic idea!

YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congratulations!

This is a hilarious and very logical idea about blogging causing pregnancy. Like crime and ice cream both going up in the hot summer months.

And, did I say? YIPPEE!!!!!! Hope the pukiness goes away soon.
