I have never had a RL journal, let alone an online journal, so let's see how well I am able to keep this up.
I am newly expecting #3, after a 7 year wait. DH and I kept telling each other "Let's start trying in the spring" (Oct. '99), "Let's try after my birthday" (Around easter of '00) on and on. Now it's 2007, I'm in a very steady secure job, and DH is finishing school in June, so we should have 2 incomes by the time our little jellybean arriives. Should we have waited a bit more, until after DH got his job? Probably, because there is a chance that he would get a job in another state, so we would lose my income, at least for a bit. But things are going to happen for the rest of our lives, starting and ending jobs, moving, just life in general. So, we decided that now is a good a time as ever, so let's start. Last Sept. I stopped using the Nuvaring, and we charted until Dec. Around my O time in Dec., we "oops"ed, and decided that enough was enough. Let's just see what happens, and if we are pg, then we are, and if not, then we will start officially trying. I conceived in Dec., which is not suprising, since I conceived on the first try with both of my other DD (now ten and almost eight)
So far, I have told my DH, my DDs, two ladies at work, and my sister. Probably too many people, but if something does happen, I want support wherever I turn, because I would not be able to handle this by myself. Most everyone is happy for me, except for one of the ladies at work. I know we will not get a good reception from most of my co-workers (think that 2 children is more than enough as it is), bosses (have to go to the trouble of finding someone to cover my job when I'm on mat. leave), or in-laws (taking us to a Mexico trip early summer '07, this will completely ruin it!). Hello, I'm the one who's pg! If I think that Mexico will still be a blast, and I can handle having more than 2 children, why does everyone else have to butt in? I shouldn't talk about having 2 incomes, though, because I plan to leave this job by the time I have this little bean, if not before.
Ok, this has turned into quite a large post! I will post more later then.
One more thing, my first appt is the 24th, and I am so excited. Also, I am telling the rest of my family this weekend.
So that's my story up to now.
