My husband says it's too early to tell any of our friends, so I'm telling you folks... I'm making my very own... PERFECT! ORGANISM!
This is really good news because we were praying for this for a while and I was beginning to worry.
I think having another creature growing inside of me subconsciously lead me to become so much more obsessed with Alien lately, lol.
But my husband is getting a little creeped out by all my Alien related jokes in the matter and by me telling him that it's a squid baby...
But I'm so excited right now, and really wanted to tell you folks. :D

Congratulations i hope its a Traditional Fetus... and no one has been giving you any Special David Guinness ;)

Thanks!! :D And, love those GIFs!
Thanks, I hope it's a traditional fetus too! ...Or a bad-ass fetus, like a baby Ripley, lol.
I think I'd have more to worry about if someone had given my husband a David Guinness, no? Thus far he hasn't gotten any crazy eye-worms or black veins nor an urge to willingly incinerate himself, so hopefully we're ok? ^-^
They say one added benefit of pregnancy is you get weirder dreams!
Last night I dreamt that David had a birthday party and Elon Musk showed up and called David "The next big visionary".
Not the weirdest, but it's a start, lol. :P
Remember to have your child start with Prometheus not Alien!
Yes! I'll have my kiddo watch the movies in the chronologically correct order of events. I'll make him/her read my fan-fics in between the correct movies too! lol
VIVISECTEDENGINEER - Oh, gosh! That is absolutely wonderful! Congratulations! You are about to bring a new soul into this world to experience its beauty and wonder - something that is more valuable than anything else in life! Congratulations! :)
VivisectedEngineer congratulations!! It is an amazing experience bringing a child into the world. My wife and I have a one year old that we are still in awe that she is ours.
Fun times ahead!!! All the best
White goo? Wink wink lol
White- creates life
black- destroys it
Is there an agenda the mods are not telling us about? ;)
Thanks!!! I'll raise a non-alcoholic toast with Leo there! (I'll pour my own drink, thanks David). :P
Thanks!!! :D I know right!? How amazing is that!? This world is a cool place, can't wait to show someone around it!
I think the reason it took a while was because of all my stress from work. But now that I'm on summer vacation; my life is all riding bikes, shooting hoops, watching my favorite movies and minimal human contact. So, my stress reduced and things finally worked out! :) I'm glad, because I was getting to the point where Shaw's "I can't create life..." scene was making me tear up a bit...
Thanks!!! And congratulations to you as well! That must be so amazing! I am really looking forward to it!
LOL! I swear to you, when I first told my husband about this I said "If it's twins I'm naming them David and Walter." My husband's reaction was literally like " O_O; Oh...no...". Lol.
What if they are female twins? Ripley/Shaw, Ripley/Daniels? There are always the standards Eunice and Gertrude- they work great when they get around 70 years old. Gotta look to the future lol!
VivisectedEngineer thank you and believe me from experience, after the birth your husband will let you pick any name you want....
Something Real thank you as well :)
If it is a female you could go with Senga. True story. I had an elderly patient by that name. She was an opera singer named Agnes. She decided flipping it around sounded more exotic.
Ripley is a pretty cool name (but I'm not so found of Ellen). Daniels would be confusing because people would think it was Daniel or Danielle. Too bad we never learned Daniels' first name.
"Shaw" would make a pretty cool first name. Elizabeth Shaw was informally called "Ellie" which is also cute.
I think s/he'll be coming in March, but I have a doctor's appointment on the 17th to confirm.
Lol, well, my husband makes a pretty compelling point. He said he doesn't want to explain to our child that a genocidal robot is the origin story of his name.
Actually, as tempting as it is, I guess I wouldn't want my child to embody either megalomania like David nor servility like Walter, so those might not be the best names.
But...maybe they can be the "working names" while the kids are in production...like how films have "working titles" lol.
Thank you!!! Oh man, I love Bishop, he's awesome! But that would be a really confusing name for a Hindu kid to have, lol.
I think ultimately I'll give the child a traditional Vaishnava name then non-sequitoriously nick-name them "Newt" :)
Congrats :-) Imagine all the futuristic things your son or daughter will get to see :-)
Well... I'm going to freeze myself in hypersleep and make my son/daughter help me discover the secret to immortality so I can see all the futuristic things too <_<
