This time around:
I was done having babies. Dh... Was on the fence about it. My first pregnancy was horrible with many complications. My last pregnancy and birth was pretty uneventful, with the exception of Gestational Diabetes (as measured on home monitor) with numbers just under 400 after meals.
This pregnancy is a complete surprise. I had an appointment the next week to discuss permanent both control options.... So yah. At first, I couldn't find a fiber in me that wanted this baby nor a speck of joy about it. That is a new feeling, as we struggled with infertility for just over 3.5 years to conceive Bear, with some miscarriages before. It took a long while to conceive bean as well. I felt so guilty! But, given just a bit of time, I've come around. I'm nervous about having 3, and I hate how nervous (and often sick) pregnancy makes me. I'm also on a low carb/high fat/protein diet.
My best friend conceived the very same week as me. I'm hoping we make it to December together!
We, too, are do what works family, too. We lean most to AP in our parenting style.
I tried vegan for a year and got really sick. I seem to need my meat.
I love Jesus, Felicia Day, playing pc video games with dh, reading (esp. sci fi/fantasy),mountain biking, Stargate, Netflix instant, board games, learning new things, repurposing things, cake decorating.
Things I like least: Monsanto, cleaning, noisy places, jello with fruit in it, my kids screaming.
I'm hoping for a sticky healthy baby and betting it'll be a New Years babe.
