All right--here I am! I was feeling a bit cautious about posting since I lost ALL my pregnancy symptoms about 3 weeks ago or so. The horrendous m/s suddenly disappeared at about 8 weeks and I wasn't as tired as I had been. It was bizarre! I took another test at the clinic, which confirmed that I was still pregnant, but I wanted to wait to post until I heard the heartbeat. I finally had my first appointment on the 29th, but I haven't had time to post about it.
Lil' bean is now 12 weeks old! We had a quick u/s in the office to see the heartbeat and we'll have another one on Friday. We're going to be sure my dates are correct and I'll get another picture. We're totally thrilled about this baby and DH keeps telling everyone he knows! I'm still having a hard time believing I'm pregnant, even though we were pretty much TTC. I definitely have popped out sooner than with Tristan and have a little belly. Someone at work even noticed, even though I've only told my closest friends. I am getting the "Are you crazy?" looks when people find out. They're like "You just had Tristan" but then comment that it won't be so bad when I mention that they'll be about 19-20 months apart. For some reason, people seem to think that I'll have two kids a year apart. It could be worse, I could be having twins! Or be like my cousin who had three kids 11 months apart!
That's great Sarah!! I am glad you are feeling good!
I totally know what you mean about people's comments. It's funny how you mentioned that a lot of people automatically think they will be one year apart. I am finding a lot of people have kids once their 'baby' turns one. I also cannot believe I am pregnant too. I am totally happy, but an soooo sick and tired of feeling like crap (the m/s comes and goes still).
Anyway, cant wait to see pics of your little bean!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!
Sarah, I get those "I thought you JUST had a baby" looks all the time and what makes it even worse for me is that i'm still young so they think i'm absolutely nuts! Some say "you don't know what you're in for." I know it'll be tough sometimes but aren't all babies blessings no matter what? I just feel like if they aren't the ones supporting our kids, who the heck are they to judge? LOL! Sorry girls, I just hate when people judge us just because we're having BABIES. Goodness!
LOL Crystal! ITA! Sometimes people look at me like I grew a 3rd arm when they see I have 4 children. I cannot WAIT to have another - it will happen when it happens for us - not worried, God has it all planned out for our family. We believe children are always a blessing - I say to ppl who ask if we are having my children "Some people like to have a lot of cats, I like to have a lot of children!" LOL
I too thought I was ready for a while, I even scheduled an appt to have my IUD removed, but I am getting a little scared now? I just dont see many women out there who have a lot of children and who work full-time! My family thinks im crazy for even thinking about it?
I want 2-3 more...but not yet I've done one 20 month spread, now I'd like a little longer break, then maybe have 3 and 4 close in age?
Besides, dh and I are planning a South America vacation--childless--next sept/oct. And mil has agreed to take the kids for a week! So I CAN'T be pg or have a newborn or we can't go. So, maybe ttc next fall? That would make a summer 08 baby...perfect almost 3 year spread from Kaitlyn
