Okay, so I haven't blogged on this subject in a while . . . I was getting on the computer to blog about this particular topic and then I get more news that adds to my topic . . .
So, as some of you know, we are trying for baby #2. It's been almost
six months now and we are going through the very same thing that we did
when we tried for Kryssa . . .
Now, here's the thing: When we were trying to conceive our first, we
kept on hearing from people around us that they were expecting. We
were always super happy for everyone -we just wondered when our turn was
coming. So, a total of six conceptions happened in about a 3 month
period . . . we were, finally, the seventh conception. So, back in
early April or so we found out that 'person #1' was pregnant. Then the
same week we heard about 'person #2'. About 2 weeks later we heard
about 'person #3'; then 'person #4' -last week-, and when I heard about
that one, I joked w/ Chris saying, "okay, that's number four, we only
have two more to go and then we will be lucky numer seven again." Ha ha
ha -well, today, I went outside, looking for Chris and my
father-in-law, and our neighbor, w/ his three kids, are out chit
chatting w/ Chris . . . I end up in the conversation and then he
chuckles and announces "So, we just found out last night that we're
expecting baby number four!". -that makes that 'person #5- So, of
course, I really am happy for them because I love pregnancies and
babies/children and all -but then I realized -uh, okay, that makes how
many now . . please, Lord, can we be next?!- So, I came inside and
dropped my jaw for a second while I told Chris how strange it is that it
seems to be happening the same exact way as when we were trying for
baby number 1 -everyone around us is getting pregnant (some planned,
some not) . . . So, I was on my way to blog about that and then I get a
message about 'person #6'!!! Crazy, isn't it?! For me it seems awfully
strange . . . I am so super happy for everyone because at least I get
to share that joy with people around me. Plus, I have been handling it
better w/ trying for baby #2, than when we were trying for baby #1,
because, 1, I have an appt. w/ a fertility specialist this thursday so
God willing I will be able to see what our options are, and, 2, we are
going to Vegas in July, so, I might actually be better off not pregnant
just yet . . .
Well, I'm on the phone now -but this is where we are at . . . God
willing Thursday will give me some answers to all my questions. I will
post some updates when I have some . . .
*oh, so if my little theory of "lucky 7" doesn't work -I'll be okay . . . but we really are ready for baby #2 . . .
