I've been having issues getting excited about this pregnancy because it wasn't planned and I just feel like it's coming at a bad time for us. My son is only 16 months old and I'm due right around his 2nd birthday. There's a 3 year gap between him and our daughter and we both felt that was good spacing so we had originally planned to wait until after he turned 2 before we started TTC again. DH is really excited though, probably more excited than he was about the other two pregnancies, and that has helped a lot. He finally figured out what I need from him while I'm pregnant and has been so patient and helpful and has really picked up the extra slack at home since I'm so tired and nauseous all the time. He insists that this is perfect timing because he just recently got a promotion and a raise and we're in the process of buying a house. I'm not excited to move while I'm pregnant but I've done it before so I guess I'll get through it again. I decided to watch The Business of Being Born the other day and that has really helped me get more focused on the pregnancy and get excited about another baby. I watched it all the time during my first pregnancy because it helped me re-affirm my decision to have a natural birth and it kept my confidence up. It was definitely a nice reminder of the joy that is coming our way when this baby arrives and it's getting me really excited for another homebirth.
