So I think I can finally join without jinxing anything...
I'm pregnant with our second child, though this is my 4th pregnancy. We lost two before my son. I think that's part of why I chose not to test, and just let it gradually be revealed that I am pregnant - somehow it made for less anxiety because there was never a moment, just a growing sense. My estimated due date is October 19th. I'm excited for a fall baby - my son is a spring baby, and it was wonderful to hunker down in the house for a babymoon, waiting for it to get warm. With this one, we'll have a few months for a baby moon. We are planning to give birth at the local birth center, where I gave birth to my son. After all of my fears the first time, I'm really excited to give birth again! I just made my first prenatal appointment today, and I've already started making lists.
Sphinxie! So good to see you here! maela is here too!
I'm thinking about how lovely a fall baby will be too
