You didn’t REALLY think I was going to tell you all about that did you? That’s what we would call a little TMI. Besides…I think we all know how that process works by now. If not, I’ll refer you back to 10th grade health class with the creepy coach/teacher guy who would scratch his crotch while teaching everyone about Gonorrhea. Oh, wait…was that just at Pleasant Grove? My bad.
Nah…my title was just about getting clicks 😉 Now that you’re here, I’ll tell you what you probably already knew or guessed: I’m pregnant again. Yes. It’s true. I’ve known since November 16th and I’ve wanted to blog about it several times since then, but I’ve just been tired. SO tired. I only *thought* I was tired when I was pregnant with Harp. Whoa, buddy.
Aside from the fatigue, I’ve been feeling great so far! I’ve hardly been sick at all….A-MAZING! (Don’t worry. I’m not going to update you on how I’m feeling every day, like I did with Harper. That was a little overboard)
I don’t want this to be long, but there are a few things I want to write about lest I forget 🙂 Benji and I weren’t planning on trying to get pregnant again until he got into a professional librarian position. He has always jokingly said that the only sure way to prevent having a baby is to want one and the only sure way to get one is to not want one => that was true for both of our pregnancies. Not that we didn’t “want” a baby. Babies are always welcome in our household, I think. We just weren’t planning one. With Harper, we planned and tried for ten months before finally getting pregnant. With this one, we decided to wait and BAM! We got pregnant. Pretty hilarious, if you ask me.
The part I want to remember is how I found out the day after God worked a huge miracle in our lives. Remember how someone broke into my car and stole my purse and how God provided for a new window, among other things? I found out the very next morning. I’m pretty sure if those events hadn’t taken place, I would’ve had a giant panic attack over having an unplanned baby. However, with the happenings of the previous day, it was absolutely IMPOSSIBLE for me to worry over it.
The other thing I want to remember is the week leading up to November 16th. I fell asleep every night at 7PM and I had lots of baby dreams. Because of the dreams, I had a feeling that I was pregnant and even wrote a note about it in my phone. I honestly thought I was just being paranoid, but I guess I was completely sane after all 🙂 I love that before I actually knew I was pregnant, my brain was dreaming about it. That’s just so cool to me!
We told our family with this little booger:
And here’s a video of Benji’s family finding out on Thanksgiving (lots of hugs were given to me, so some parts are kind’ve shaky and weird)
So there you have it! We couldn’t be more thrilled about little bean #2. I’m so glad that God’s timing doesn’t always line up with our own. It makes for some awesome surprises!
My first ultrasound is December 6th. In hopes of avoiding another c-section, I’m seeing a midwife this time around. Should be VERY interesting 🙂
