Baby!

So last night, I went out with a friend for dinner and a movie (the new Indiana Jones movie), so it wasn’t until 9:30 that I got home last night.
There was no car in the driveway. I don’t think I’ve whined moaned talked too much about this lately, but my sister is pregnant. She was due this past Wednesday, so we’ve all anxiously been awaiting news. My mom plans on being there for the birthing, but my sister lives about 5 hours away, so she at least is going to have to hop in a car and hightail it down the 401 as soon as it starts. The rest of us want to be there too, but it’s a bit more complicated with work and school schedules to work around (my mom has a co-worker ready to cover for her at a moments notice). So when I got home last night, and saw the other car missing, my first thought was "Baby!" and ran in the house.
I didn’t even have the sentence out of my mouth before I saw my mom standing in the kitchen :( My sister was just out at a school dance.
I want a baby!

On a totally unrelated topic: I’m completely familiar with the character limits for comments (heh), but does anyone on my flist know what the character limits for a post are? I know there must be some, since writers are forced to post fic in multiple parts sometimes, but I’ve never written anything so long as to run into that. I’m currently working on something though, that’s halfway through it’s fourth page, and I’m not even close to being done. If I’m going to have to divide this into parts, it will probably effect how I write and post it.
So, to sum up, about how many pages can you fit in an LJ post?

Also, I may have signed up at otw_onlinecon to write fic :S What was I thinking!?

*sneaksinoverthefence* 10000 words per post are the limit. At least as far as I know... And good luck with that baby ;)

Thanks for the info!

And I think the baby will be here any time now, I have a suitcase packed and ready for the call. :) *can't wait*

Aww, no baby yet? Don't you hate it when you expect every phone call to be baby news? Of course, it'll probably come at about 3 am and you'll be so tired that it won't hit you until two days later.

When I was posting Nature's Corruption, I was able to put ten pages in a post and I'm pretty sure I still had room for a bit more.

Not yet, but soon! She's gone into pre-labour! (which mostly means she hurts a lot, and can't get comfortable, but still!!)

Thanks for the info on the page numbers, I think I should be able to keep my post below 10 pages, although I may still do a follow up post depending on the reaction it gets... and how clearly I can express myself.
