Weeellll….we’ve been hem-hawing about having another baby for months–nay, years–now. We’ve even “tried” off and on quite a few times! Then we just weren’t sure what we wanted to do, so we took a break.
Well, my sweet hubby kept asking me if I wanted another baby. He’d ask our boys if they wanted a brother or sister. He’d mention “now or never” and ask if I’d made up my mind.
I’ve knows for quite a while that I’m definitely open to the idea or having another baby but I wasn’t SURE one way or the other.
Then recently, I’ve been feeling the draw again…that puuullll to become a mother again.
It’s that time of the year, too…when we got pregnant with the miscarriage baby, Mother’s Day, Ethan’s birthday…when I’m thinking about pregnancy and babies again.
And I noticed on Countdown to Pregnancy that if we conceived this cycle, I’d be due December 28. That rings a bell–that was our due date with the miscarriage baby.
Songs on the radio…looking at baby pictures of the boys and feeling that tug on my heart…I finally thought, “Yeah, we need to think about taking another leap of faith.”
Drew prayed about it. He said he had peace. So we’re going for it.
The night before we first “tried,” Ethan added, “getting a new baby” to his nighttime prayers….like he KNEW or something. Funny.
This time FEELS different. Our hearts are in it. Life is good, our family is doing great, I’m feeling amazing…it’s time.
So we’re taking that leap of faith and this time, we’re sticking with it!
Assuming my fertile phase just passed, we’d be looking at news before the end of April. If it doesn’t take this month, I’ll start charting again. I had to brush up on my Fertility Awareness knowledge–thankfully, a lot of it is still ingrained in me!
The last two times we really made up our minds we got pregnant on the first try so of course that’s my request. But really, any time in the next 10 months would be lovely.
Here we go!!
