I wrote a post awhile ago about deciding whether to have a third child. I spent most of my summer debating the pros and cons and felt paralyzed to make a decision. I liked the idea of one more baby but not the costs, stress, pregnancy etc. associated with it. I was afraid I would regret not having one, but I wasn’t sure I could handle it either. And, I also thought it might be too late to even have another. I am in the advanced maternal age range now you see.
I wrote my post after a summer of debating and then it happened, I felt at peace with my decision to stick with two. I was feeling pretty good about my decision. But.. apparently when I published that post I was already pregnant and had not found out yet. Yep, that’s right I am pregnant with #3 after all. It’s happening! Am I freaked out? Oh yeah. But I am starting to get excited too. I had a rough first trimester full of doubt and morning sickness, but I am coming out of the fog and starting to feel good about things, as well as better physically.
Baby #3 Due in May 2016
So here we go… I am sure there will be lots of documentation of this pregnancy from here on out. Stay tuned!
