Thanks! I am actually quite surprised to be here (in this DDC) because 99% of the time dh and I leave things up to chance but this past month was the ONLY time we'd ever actually actively abstained to NOT get pregnant! (obviously my math is off ;) ). Dh has been studying to be a deacon for FIVE YEARS now and his 16 classmates will be ordained to the Diaconate in May, but dh has to wait until August because you're supposed to be 35 to be ordained but can be just 34 with a year's dispensation from the Bishop.. and he turns 34 in August. Soooo.... we originally thought by abstaining we'd avoid an August babe (because.. gosh.. I don't know what we'd do then!), but since this babe is due in September (and every baby thus far has been birthed at 41+ weeks), we're in the clear!
Phew! Long story, but I love to share with people ;)
We weren't going to get pregnant this month either. ;-) What homeschool mom wants to have a baby in September?
Great story. Congrats to your dh!
My dh and I are in RCIA this year.
