A Picture Says Four Words

In this case, those four words are...

We're having a baby!

I am 13 weeks' pregnant and Bloke and I are so excited! This may explain why I haven't been as up-to-speed on the blog lately, and why my brain keeps running away when I need it ;) Everything is going well so far and we are on target for an ETA of 18 June 2007. It also seems that I am not the only person in the online romance-writing community who currently has a bun in the oven! I know of at least three others -- something in the water maybe?

*Big grin*

Some more great news this week -- my critique partner Nell Dixon's medical romance Charlie Darling has had its full manuscript requested by Mills & Boon. Go Nell!!

Thanks, Pip! Actually we found out only a couple of days after we came up to your launch party :) I freaked, of course, because while we were there I drank some wine and ate pate and brie!

Thanks, Sue :) LOL -- "note to self" indeed! Unless you don't mind, that is... ;)

Jess - I shouldn't worry. My daughter was conceived just before before New Year's Eve. I can't tell you how much alcohol and unpasteurised cheese she must have been subjected to before I found out. I am SO happy for you.

It's so exciting!!! Don't worry about the wine and cheese. Most of us had our fill before we found out!! Enjoy every minute and don't worry!

I'm newbie to your blog but had to stop by and say HI and CONGRATS on your baby news! Yep there's def loadsa babies happening in the RNA.

Mine is due 30 May. So if you need a 'preg' buddy (who also writes) drop me a line via my web (judyjarvie.com)! We can stress about due dates together come the summer!

Oh congratulations!!! Wonderful news :o)
Must be something in the air, seems half the people I know are expecting (or at least seems that way!)

Pip -- When I think about it I didn't actually eat that much brie, I was just being over-the-top worried!

Thanks Liz! Am really enjoying it so far and feeling pretty good :)

Hi Judy, and thanks for visiting. I read your news on Pip's blog, so congratulations to you too! Will hop over to your site now :)

Thanks Lis! It's so exciting and we are so thrilled. I know what you mean about something in the air; it seems there's a birth or an announcement of imminent birth fairly regularly in romance-community-land at the moment!
