As you may have gathered, I am a big fan of stews. As soon as that weather turns chilly, I am busting out my big pot and away we go. I like stews because they are warm and crazy easy. That whole celery, garlic, roots, and meat mix is always the base and you can add just about anything for a twist. Lately, I am trying to get back ….
That’s right, and this one was a bit of a surprise! This ultrasound photo was from 10 weeks and I’m about 13 weeks now.
I haven’t told any family yet. To be honest, I really don’t want to. Those of you who have a lot of kids will understand. People are pretty excited about babies one and two. Especially, if they are different sexes. And after our infertility troubles for so many years, it was a joyous announcement.
Number three brings a lot less fanfare and people insisting you MUST be done now. With number four, everyone acts like you are a little insane and start quizzing you on your birth control practices. And number five? Well, by then you would think people would just assume you like a big family and keep their negative thoughts to themselves. Alas, they don’t.
I figured even though my paraguard sat too low, it still would have left a few days worth of copper in there to do the job. My polycystic ovaries could pick up the rest of the slack. And then the fact that I am many years past the “advanced maternal age” cutoff, could have rounded things off nicely.
Basically, the odds of conception were very low, but life apparently had plans for me.
My husband is extremely excited and is rather annoyed that I wouldn’t let him tell anyone yet. I find it hilarious that he seems more excited this time than with any others.
So once again, I am sitting on a secret.
I was thinking I could just not say anything and see who had the guts to ask first. Seeing as how my abs gave up on life years ago, I should pop out pretty soon here. I could just drive everyone crazy wondering if I’m pregnant or just really enjoying the awesomess of burritos.
And if anyone asks, yet again, “don’t you know how that happens?”, I might just twirl my hair and reply “No! Tell me in explicit detail!”. 😉
So, our plans to sell our house this spring and buy some acreage, are a little bit more complicated. I would prefer to not be homeless when we have this baby, so here’s to hoping we find a new places quickly!
