Borrowed from  Kudzu Ramblings

Here you go – a different kind of survey for a change – it’s all about your first born! Just copy and paste it in a new blog post for yourself!

  1. WAS YOUR PREGNANCY PLANNED?  Not exactly.  I always said I wanted a baby by the time I was 30, but really didn’t plan it.

  3. WHAT WERE YOUR REACTIONS?   A little freaked to be honest.
  4. WAS ABORTION AN OPTION FOR YOU?   Nope, never considered it.
  5. HOW OLD WERE YOU?  I turned 29 eight days before I found out.
  6. HOW DID YOU FIND OUT YOU WERE PREGNANT?  Peed on a stick, threw the stick when it turned up positive.
  7. WHO DID YOU TELL FIRST?   Honestly, I can’t remember — I was kinda in denial/shock there for a while.
  8. DID YOU WANT TO FIND OUT THE SEX?   Yes
  9. DUE DATE?  September 7, 1993 — but I was thinking more like August 14, 1993.
  10. DID YOU HAVE MORNING SICKNESS?   Not really, just slightly queasy unless I didn’t get to be before midnight then I got sick if I wasn’t sound asleep by 1:30am (I worked nights at the time).
  11. WHAT DID YOU CRAVE?   Nothing really.
  12. WHAT IRRITATED YOU?  Can’t remember.
  13. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CHILD’S GENDER?   Boy
  14. DID YOU WISH YOU HAD THE OPPOSITE GENDER OF WHAT YOU WERE GETTING?   Yep, figured having a girl would be easier since I was single, plus I long for a daughter.
