the bun in the oven...
As many of you realized I wasn't announcing that my oven was dirty, but yes, we are indeed pregnant. I am due February 17, 2008, so I am 14 weeks along. All has gone perfectly so far....no sickness, no problems...it's been easy, and I pray it stays that way. I'm thinking that handling 2 kids will be enough work when this little one arrives, it would be great if it could go easy on me for the next 6 months.
Getting pregnant with Henry was a long process. It took us two years to just get pregnant, and almost 3 years to finally have him here with us. This time around was much easier on us. It just took a few rounds of the same meds (Clomid and Metformin) we used to conceive Henry. I was in shock that it happened so fast...I had prepared myself for another extended period of waiting. The only reason I even tested back in June was because I was supposed to be running 10 miles that night with Pam to prepare for our half marathon, and the thought crossed my mind that I possibly could be pregnant. I took the one test I had at home, and it seemed positive, light but positive. I had taken a digital one with Henry, and I loved that it was clear cut and read "pregnant" or "not pregnant", so Henry and I ran over to Walmart (I cringe at even admitting that), bought a digital test and went into the dirty Walmart bathroom to prove the previous test right (I'm way too impatient to wait until we got home to know...this was a life-changing event!!!). It came up "positive" right away, and Henry and I proceeded to Pam's house to tell her that I would not be running that night. Running and pregnancy don't mix for me....actually running doesn't mix with me, period. I hated ditching my running partner, and of course her hubby had to say, "I knew you'd get out of it one way or another" (with a smirk and a congratulations too), but I'd give up running (of course) for another little person any day!
So, that's that. Henry is going to be a big brother, and we couldn't be happier!
