"There is a nice strong heartbeat"
Possibly the greatest thing I have ever been told!
I reverted to some primal caveman on hearing it though, let out some kind of "ugg" grunt!
We saw the heart beating on the screen, and an arm waving! :D We've got a couple of pictures, but it just looks like an alien at the moment!
Oh boy I'm going to be drunk tonight! :D

*applause* Good news good news! :D

Thats great news! but you missed out all the details.
Is it a boy? When is your due date?
And as for drinking all of that should stop as it is not good for the babies health!
Tell Claire to enjoy every minute of this wonderful experience.
You're having an alien! Congrats! ;)

Surely it's too early to tell if it's a boy or a girl ?
Don't listen to anyone who tells you drinking is bad for the baby. It's Claire who has to stop not you - you are now officially "drinking for two".
Great news, and I hope all continues to go well as I'm sure it will.

Drink enough and you can pretend you've got a 'bump' too. Eat enough kebabs and you too can have a 'birth'.
>_< Missed out some info.
Couldn't tell the sex, but due date is 29th of Jan. :)
Claire's not drinking, I'm going to drink for two! :)

You forgot the kid can't drink yet either. I'd tell you to drink for three, but I think you're way ahead of me on that. Congrats, you deserve a strong hearted child.
:D Thanks all! Off to Brighton now! :D I'll have a drink for each of you!

Vestax totally read my mind. ;)

It's a Shadie !!! :)

yaaaaaaay GL! Can't wait to see the post with you becoming a father!
July 1 2006 1:48 PM EDT
aww, he was waving at you? :-) Congratulations!
As they say, 3rd time lucky :) (I think it's 3rd time, isn't it? :S)
Hope it all goes well this time :D

So if GL is the father and the child is an alien... Are you hiding something from us, GL?
Mem, your mind is quite mixed up. :P
(P.S. Mem's name is STILL not in the spellchecker)
Congrats GL!! I wish you and Claire the best!
(P.S. 'SliMem Dotson' gets through the spellchecker fine, just like anyone else's full username.)
