    They meant it. They didn’t ever tell US.

    Oops! Well, maybe chalk it up to hormonal changes? For Leo’s sake, just hope Drew keeps the news to herself till 2nd tri.

    I know I’m going to catch flack for this…But a woman keeping a secret, is a bit like trying to dam Niagara Falls, isn’t it ?

    I’ve never understood that…If you don’t want to know what sex the little thing is, why not wait for a year or two AFTER they’re born to find out? The suspense would build..Besides, nobody likes changing diapers anyway…It would be cool…Second birthday..Hey it’s a girl! Ha Ha!

    Linguist, do you seriously believe most men keep secrets?

    Or are you just doing that thing of taking a negative human behavior done by people generally and then acting as if only women (or only people of a given race or religion or whatever) do it?

    Trust me, my tongue was planted firmly in my cheek. I’m not saying the male of the species is any better when it comes to gossip or secrets.
    Just my 2am sense of humor coming out.

    I’ve often felt the same way about pretty much all generalizations.
    After all, people who generalize are all alike!

    Yeah, you should stop around Niagara Falls some night around 3 am. They all but turn the Falls off, and can, in fact, turn the Falls off competely. Nearly all the water is diverted for several hours for electrical generation, and even during the day what’s going over the Falls is a fraction of what it used to be.

    My brother, who’s a true cynic (I’m merely a realist…), often points out that a properly newlywed bride will arise the day after her wedding and cross the street there in Niagara Falls to take in the sight and see arrayed before her the second greatest disappointment of her married life.

    Yes, unrealistic expectations, can do that to you.

    Different for us. My twins — 29 Y/O yesterday — had us fooled all along. One heartbeat, one baby in the ultrasounds, even though my wife’s stomach was the size of a weather balloon.

    Then a drunk driver hit our car 3 weeks before her due date. Took the wife to the hospital as a precaution, and the doctor said “Don’t worry, your babies are just fine”. Um, er, “BABIES”? Yep, one was hiding behind the other. Three weeks later (Super Bowl Sunday 1984), 2 healthy girls 46 minutes apart (natural with no epidermal).

    Superstition, hell. You don’t tell people right away because there’s still a major chance of miscarriage for several weeks. Hopefully (this is still a comic strip!) GT won’t go there.

    29 years ago you had twins? Congrats. I bet technology has changed tremendously since that time for ultrasounds (as well as everything else)…
