At least, that’s what we’re telling ourselves.
Why else take on the crazy life of three kidlets? Three under four?
Yes, God certainly has a sense of humor and decided it was time we had another surprise in our lives.
A COMPLETE surprise.
Five years of infertility. One miscarriage. One miraculous adoption. One miraculous surprise . . . and now another.
Shock doesn’t begin to describe what we’ve felt these past couple of weeks.
Of course, the Little Lady is thrilled — she started praying for a baby sister around Thanksgiving, after meeting her new baby cousin.
I had no idea her prayers would be answered quite so quickly.
And now, she’s telling me I’m going to have TWO babies.
He, he, he. . . um . . . . TWO, Little Lady?
I’m roughly six weeks preggo and will have my official dating ultrasound Wednesday. For the past two weeks, we’ve debated keeping the news quiet or going public. I wanted to stay private, at least till after the ultrasound. Hubby, however, has been telling EVERYONE.
So — now you all know too.
Here’s to 2011, losing my sanity and gaining back all the weight I’ve lost the past 8 months.
p.s. I hope my “two is for quitters” doesn’t offend anyone; as a woman who dealt with infertility (and still deals with the scars of it), I know how heart-wrenching it is to want and crave a baby. I have cried and cried . . .been jealous of other women and their ability to have a baby whenever they want. I’ve been there. My title is meant to be humorous — to make light of the fact I’m rather scared and nervous about this pregnancy. I recognize it as nothing short of a miracle — God’s way of showing it’s He (and not my fertility/reproductive doctors) that’s in control.
