Well, after only two months of trying we are so excited to announce that we are expecting baby number six. I’m six weeks along and feeling pretty awful. LOL but loving it too! DH doesn’t seem as happy about it as I am. I think he thought it would take longer to get pregnant, or that somehow it wouldn’t really happen. Things are kind of up-in-the-air with his job and I’m sure that those two things together are stressing him out. He sure seemed on board with it when we were trying! 😉 I think he is worried too about the razzing his friends will give him about having six kids. He laughs about it on the outside but I think it really bothers him when they give him a hard time about it. I know they mean well…I just wish they’d leave well enough alone and just say congratulations.
I’m having a really tough time with my emotions this time around. I cry at the drop of a hat over anything. With my others I got more angry-annoyed type of emotions so I’m hoping that this surge of estrogen is a sign it’s a girl. I’m pretty sure after this one we will be done. Adoption just hasn’t worked out for us and I don’t think I can handle another pregnancy/birth. I may eat my words on that, who knows, but right now I’m starting to have those “what-on-earth-was-I-thinking” thoughts. So I think if this one is another boy, I will bawl my eyes out for a while. I have no clue what we’d name him…I’m plumb out of boys names. I’m seriously leaning toward Octavius George just to be mean. I’ve always wanted a “Gus”. LOL it could be a cute name though, I think it’s growing on me!
I just wanted to post here officially so you didn’t think I had fallen off the planet. I’m going to try my hardest to keep accepting clients and as far as now I don’t intend to take maternity leave until May. I may change that, so if you were thinking of getting a session in, the earlier the better is best.
BTW we are due May 11th, Mother’s Day!
