Hello, everyone. :)
@snowydays: I've been waking a lot in the night around 3 in the morning. Today it was 4. My metabolism kicks into high gear when I'm pregnant, morning noon and night, so from experience I know I'm going to need to stock up on snacks in the bedroom. Crackers, Apple slices and peanut butter, etc. I'm prone to hyperemesis, so I'm being proactive. It's good you're not having to deal with the vomiting yet. Sometimes it can be avoided, others not. Best of luck to you, Mama!
I'm beginning to get used to the idea that I am pregnant again. DP and I were avoiding pregnancy, as I'm going back to school in January after a semester off.
I didn't want to see the same midwives again, either, and there are no other local home birth midwives, so I called them on Thursday to make an appointment, and I'll be seeing them next Friday. They are reputable, well-liked, professional midwives; I was unsatisfied with my previous labor and birth experience. Probably because I was missing my previous midwife who just got me. At any rate, it looks like I'll be advocating for myself and practicing my assertive voice, which has always been a good thing.
I went to a ladies night with friends tonight, and as I worried I might, I couldn't help sharing the news. One friend guessed and then ti was all over. My family knows; I waited a couple of days and was admonished for keeping a secret, LOL -- they're a crazy bunch but they always celebrate babies enthusiastically. DP's family will not be overjoyed -- they're really a 2 child limit sort of family, and we're both getting up the nerve to tell them to get over it. Wish me luck...
