We have been trying to get pregnant since Nov 2008 and with every month and menstrual cycle that came it was always disappointing. But let me tell you know; Laiken's gonna be a bid sister! She is so excited and already says "baby mommies tummy!" It is so cute! She will be 2 in May and my husband and I can't wait for her to be a big sister and have a baby in the house again! I am a NICU nurse so I'm always around babies and infants but it's just not the same when it's not yours.
Back in January I got sick and didn't feel good for a few weeks and it just continued into February. Starting in February I told my husband, "let's just start not trying and see what happens." He said I think that's a good idea because it's gonna happen when it's gonna happen! So in February we only tried one day during the ovulation period and I was still just sick and then February 25th I decided to take a test because I hadn't started and I just kept thinking oh it's gonna be negative just like the other months! And I had started not being regular so I didn't really know how long my cycle would be that month! But Wednesday was the day I said and it was positive immediately! I used the same pregnancy test that I used when I tested with Laiken. Superstition I guess! So it's history after that! I went to my doctor and had my blood drawn and it was positive! So I am so excited to be pregnant a second time! I had a great pregnancy with my first and I'm expecting the same this time around! I loved my pregnant belly and wearing tight shirts to show it off! I can't wait to see what the future holds for my husband, daughter, and me!
