Doing the Happy Dance!
Yea! I'm pregnant! Found out last week (actually one week ago today).
I miscarried our last baby (Stella- born at home) at about 12-13 weeks. That was almost a year ago that she was born. But it's weird, I don't feel any fear about losing this one. I just KNOW I'll hold this baby, full-term, in my arms. With Stella, even before I got pregnant I thought I was going to lose her.
So, dh has a new job with fabulous hours, which I am so happy about because his last job had horrible, totally unpredictable hours. Everything seems just right.
Ds is 2 and when I told him I was going to have a baby we did the happy dance together. (I don't think he's certain about what I was saying, but he could sure tell I was happy). Around here the happy dance is going around in a circle, fingers snapping, and singing "happy, happy, happy" as loud and much as you can.
Will be doing another homebirth, thinking of a waterbirth, outside as I'm due September 25 and it will surely be hot enough!
Not much sickness, but I have a great sense of smell (one of the first things that clued me in), super tired, especially in the morning, and breasts are achy when ds wants to nurse. But, he's been really understanding about "nanas hurting" and we agree to try and see how long we can go. I've also discovered that if I nurse him sitting up (me) then it hurts much less. I think it has to do with more for him to hold onto, less direct pressure on the nipple.
Anyway, I am glad to be here and look forward to going through the nest 9-10 months with you all.
