I got a diaper in the mail today from a sweet diaper fairy! A perfect little size small fleece Angelwraps AIO~~one of my faves! This diaper means a lot because the mama who fairied it must know from other boards what my life has been like for the past few weeks!
I found out that I am pregnant with baby #4 due in January~~~it was a shock & a surprise to say the least!! I am never one to look down upon a blessing but my DH was weeks away from planning a vastectomy & WE WERE DONE!
It has taken me awhile to adjust to the idea & no one IRL knows yet save for a good friend or two. In light of some mama's heartache that has been talked about here in the last few days, I have come to see this baby as yet another miracle & I thank you diaper fairy for thinking of me
I just wanted to add I understand your feelings. We too thought we were done. I found we were expecting two weeks before I was accepted to nursing school. After 2 years of prerequisites and working so hard I found out I couldn't get the required shots. It all worked out for us in the end. I decided I need a break before start anyway.
I know the feeling, after our second was born dh was absolutely done. I wasn't sure about a month before our dd's 1st birthday I brought up wanting another one in the coming months, he and I got into a big disagreement about it and I let it go for a little while. I finally came to accept 2 was fine and that dh was maybe right and told him to schedule the vasectomy consult. Well a week later I found out I was pregnant with baby #3!! I freaked out because I had finally gotten excited about having just my 2 etc and after telling myself so much I was fine with just 2 it was weird kwim? Now it all worked out and I love her so much and she has brought so much to our family
Oh wow! Well congrats all around. I can imagine your shock as we have that "done" feeling so I can't fathom expecting again. You are right, though - what a blessing this baby will be for you. I truly believe that things happen for a reason. As this baby grows inside you and his or her personality starts coming through by way of well placed kicks and frequent hiccups, you will not be able to imagine life without them.
