Forgive me, readers, it's been 14 days since my last post.
But now that the nausea of the past couple of months has past, and I can finally stay awake later than 8:30 pm, and I'm a little less worried about something going awry, I can happily tell you all that the adults in our household will be outnumbered by children by May 5th, 2008.
Yep, we're blasting our way through early childhood: Siofra will be 4 and Paddy will be 27 months when this new addition arrives. But I'm happy about that. Seeing Siofra and Paddy's friendship develop has convinced me that having kids close in age is the way for us to go! I was reassured by Sarah's post last week...and I would also encourage anyone thinking about having a second baby relatively close in age to the first to do it. Sharing a childhood with your brothers and sisters is a great gift.
So, there's the news...it's still weird to be saying it out loud, especially since it's still kind of abstract: there's no belly to show yet (except for the one that two babies have left me with) and no flutters to feel. It's that weird time when you stop being really sick but still don't feel pregnant. I guess the next few weeks will change that, though!
So, at least this will give me something to blog about! Expect a lot of writing about midwives, sciatica, heartburn, doula support, and the mix of excitement and freaking out.
6 months to go!
