Well, here we go again with the whole pregnancy thing! Yes - I'm preggo! We're pretty excited about it and think that Ayden will be the cutest big brother ever. We'd be happy with a boy or a girl and have reasons for wanting either one. I think there'd be something incredibly cute about having a boy, so that there's a set of brothers close in age. It seems that brothers have kind of a neat bond with each other. However, I'm dying to have a girl also. I mean, come on, the outfit options and accessories are way better! And there is something sweet about a big brother with a little sister to take care of!
So much for fertility friend. I won't be charting for awhile - at least not that kind. I do feel it necessary to add a note here as natural family planning gets such a bad rap. This was not a failure on the part of our prevention method - natural family planning. Last month was the first month that it was even possible for me to get preggo. And we knew I was fertile and um...didn't take um necessary precautious...ahem...um. We just kind of figured, "What are the odds???" Hmmm...famous last words. And here we are.
I'm five weeks along at this point in time. The baby is roughly 1/8th of an inch big. Crazy! Life is such a miracle to me. It boggles my mind how it's not there one minute and then there the next. I think the whole process of pregnancy and childbirth is extremely fascinating!
Right now I'm in the process of asking around for a good midwife. I'm changing things from how they were done with my first child. I want things a lot less "medical", a lot less intervention, that sort of thing. So I'll update on that when I have more information.
