The Rest of the Story


Many of you know that James and I have been trying for Baby #2 for one year. It's been a stressful year, with many ups and downs and false alarms. We were completely unprepared to deal with infertility, because we conceived the first month we tried with Wendy.

I strongly suspected that this was no false alarm, especially after having quite a bit of nausea over the weekend. I finally tested on Sunday, when I was 4 days late, and was SO happy to see the plus sign!!

Two funny things about us finding out:
1. I had a fertility consult scheduled for this morning, to try and find out why we were having trouble conceiving this time around. I got to cancel THAT appointment, and schedule a prenatal one instead!

2. Shortly after we found out, James and I were laying in bed, talking & dreaming about the new baby. When will we tell people? How will we tell people? How old will Wendy be when the new baby arrives? As we lay there in our snug little cocoon, dreaming of Baby #2, we heard a splash from our bathroom. James got up to check it out, and our toilet had flooded our bathroom! We spent the next several minutes with towels & mops, trying to minimize the damage. How's that for ruining a moment?

Thanks for being excited with us. Our first appointment is Oct. 28th; please help us pray for a healthy baby!

Regarding the Unisom for morning sickness, it works great! Only side effect for me was post pregnancy I turned into a "drunk" on even one Benadryl. But totally worth it to rid myself of the urge to purge.

Happy for you, good thing the appointment wasn't for Monday, they'd have charged you for not cancelling within 24 hours:)

Congratulations!! What wonderful news -- babies are just the best. :) I bet Wendy's going to be over the moon about her little sibling.
