Do the Math! Yes I am expecting baby number 2!! I can’t begin to tell you how overjoyed we are to be blessed again! I went to the doctor yesterday and the estimated due date is May, 2012. This is such the perfect time for a teacher. It will be the end of the school year and I will have to only take off a week or two. I will then have the WHOLE summer to spend just being Mommy!
So here are all the details:
Nick and I decided around Christmas that we wanted to start trying for another baby at the beginning of the year. Mid January, I had the IUD removed that I have after Andrew. We actually tried not to get pregnant the first few months and then started trying around May. Well obviously the months carried on with disappointment, but I actually never let it get to me. Here I was with a beautiful 2 year old boy, what could I be upset about? Then September hit and I knew it was going to be the last month we were going to try for awhile. If I would get pregnant in Oct. or Nov. I would be due during the summer or the very beginning of the school year. Of course I would be happy either way, but the planner in me wanted to wait. I took Ovulation tests and then pregnancy tests about a 4 days before my missed period. In my mind I knew this was too early to test, but I did anyway. I even told Nick that I did not think we were ever going to have another child. I was having a pity party for sure and the first one I had would be the last! Remember my post about going to the zoo? Well after our outing, I had a feeling that I needed to take one more test. I was still not suppose to start till the next day, but I thought “what the heck!” I took one and got a very faint positive. I could see it,but Nick couldn’t. I took a more expensive early predictor test a few hours later and it was a CLEAR positive! I came downstairs and announced to Andrew, in front of Nick, that he was going to be a BIG brother!!! One of the moments I will never forget!
Do you think I went a little overboard??? You can tell the ones and the top were from the first day and were faint. The tests at the top are Wondfo brand from Amazon. They were $9 for 50!
I know I am going against the trend of waiting after the 1st trimester to tell, but I can’t hold in good news! I know things go wrong, but I would rather have people there for me then to go through it alone. So jump aboard on our new journey into parenting 2 little ones!
