Well many of you know that I wanted a third and dh did not. I was actually starting to envision my life with 2 only and thinkIng that dh was probably right and we should stick with what we got. We are happy and with 2 at least it's one adult per kid. My brother is running his first marathon in November so I thought maybe it's time to start training long again. I bought new running shoes since my old pair was one kid and a couple of marathons old and a new running bra (not cheap for what I need).

And then I realized AF was late. I've only had three cycles since Oliver was born so I thought my cycle was just off. Couple of days later I tested with an Internet cheaply I had left over from Oliver. It was positive but the test was expired by a year so I ordered new ones online. I teach in the town I live in and often run into people at the store. Did not want to get caught with that. I was freaking out because I thought dh would be PISSED.

Well the tests arrive. Y ups and I'm not home. Our puppy ginger gets ahold of the box and rips it open. Dh gets home before I do and finds the. I. He texts me and asks if there's something I need to tell him. I'm freaking out more and when I get home I say it's probably nothing. I take the test and my hand is shakIng so much I don't know how I got any pee on it. It's positive. Dh never asks me what the result was so I didn't say anything. I get no sleep all night and the next morning dh comments that there was a part of him that was excited when he saw those tests so I told him.

What is funny is that I'm freaking out...did t want them 2 years apart I'm afraid of how that's going to work out and dh is all calm about it. I havent made an appointment yet so I do t know when we get to check for hb and all of that, probably not 10-11 weeks judging by my other pregnancys.

So the bottom line is that we were not as strict about birth control as we should have been. We used pull and pray and didn't worry at all about it when I thought I was in the safe zone via period tracker. I must have ovulated early that last cycle in order for this to happen (my cycles have been 32 days since it came back).

Due date is feb 17 or somewhere around then and sorry for typos. That was a lot to post from my phone.

No, I would not do any fulls while prego. Just too intense. I am still going to do the halfs.

Congrats! I know how you feel about starting to think maybe 2 is best. I'd still love a third, but maybe we're just meant to be a 2 kid family.

Congrats!! I'm sure once the shock wears off a bit, you'll be less freaked out for sure.
