I'm thinking about composing an email which demonstrates that we have accepted this little one with JOY and they better too, and not give us grief about it.
Fitness goals...well at least I took all the weight off from the twin pregnancy already. I'm several pounds under where I started with them. Not where I'd like to be by a long shot, but it beats doing all that hard work only to get preggo again. LOL
Financial goals... we may end up dipping into the EF for midwife fees. We'll see. I have the luxury of being able to wait to pay her until close to the end if necessary. Since I apprenticed with my midwife for over a year and am on my fourth pregnancy with her, we know each other real well. I can wait and see what the tax return brings, hopefully find a vehicle that we can squeeze three buckets, two boosters and a 5 pt. harness seat, as well as the three that are not in a seat. We probably could squeeze another bucket in our current van, but we've been planning on an upgrade to a newish 15 passenger anyway. Then we'll decide if we need to dip into the EF. Dh may have a good leftover on his student grants, too. And, if it turns out to be another set of twins, I'll just go the hospital route and actually use our insurance for a change. Yippee. We are THAT close to BS3, so that really helps. Dh will be graduating just about the time this new one arrives, and pray to God he provides a new job with growth potential.
