A friend who is notorious for April Fool's Day pranks IM'ed me. At least I got in the first jab! Our conversation, edited for clarity:
Kandi: How are you today?
Karl: pretty good!
Karl: I'm at home, I broke my toe
Karl: APRIL FOOLS
Karl: I just had to getcha ;)
Kandi: I have something to tell you...
Kandi: I'm pregnant.
Karl: with triplets!!!
Kandi: Just one
Kandi: Apparently the tubal didn't work
Kandi: No, really
Karl: if this were true, today is the wrong day for you to convince me ;)
Kandi: Believe what you want to - but I am pregnant
Kandi: I'm due November 20
Karl: I can just hear the "april fools" coming
Kandi: Well, really, do I lie to you?
Karl: on April 1st you do :)
Karl: due November 20... sounds like somebody had a busy Valentine's Day :P
As it turns out, my friend was joking. They already have three kids and are definitely done!
I did search for a pregnancy calculator, and found one that back calculated the conception date based on the due date. It turns out a due date of November 20th means a conception date of February 27th, so my friend missed Valentine's Day by two weeks - a fact which would have helped string me out a little longer. :)
