Oh, ha! Just realized I clicked on June, not May. Well....my first was 1.5 weeks after my EDD, so I may very well jump back & forth between May/June.
I'm a little surprised to be here on MDC again. I got two positive results on Wednesday night using home pregnancy tests, though we haven't been trying. I haven't posted much (at all?) here since my first was born.
I haven't been to see my midwife yet, but I did go to my general practitioner's office yesterday to get yet another test since I still can't quite believe I'm pregnant (the dr. was clearly humoring me, told me that false positives are extremely rare, and congratulated me as she wrote out the order for the lab test).
I'm a little dubious of the dates I get using EDD calculators, as my period never really returned to being normal since I started getting it again about 6-8 mos ago--still, the EDD I keep coming up with is May 22.
A little about me: I'm married, a mama of a just-turned 2-year-old girl that I'm still bfing, I work outside the home, and live in the SF Bay Area in a wonderful interfaith, multiracial family.
It's sort of random, but the title of a book by one of the rabbis I studied with for conversion has been echoing in my head the last few days: This is real and you are completely unprepared. The book is about the High Holidays, but man....it sure does apply to how I feel right about now.
I'm actually quite happy to be sure, btw--this is pregnancy is not an unhappy thing. Just unexpected and definitely sooner than we were envisioning for our second.
