So I took a test last week the day my period was due and it was negative...I held out for a week and retested. Drumroll! The two pink lines appeared and catapulted us into panic mode. We have an almost-6 month old, we just moved from Connecticut to Florida, our family lives three thousand miles away and only one of us is working at the moment. After the initial shock, we started to think rationally about how in the world we're going to do this.
Despite the overwhelming idea of having a new baby so soon after our son, I can't even entertain the thought of terminating a pregnancy. We have such a wonderful relationship and family - we definitely wanted more children - we just weren't planning on this soon!
So, amidst the teething, crawling and not-quite-sleeping-through-the-night-yet...we're adding a little blessing to the madness that is our household and I'm sure it's going to be a fun ride!
