Well, I'm not preggers any longer ... we had a baby boy on August 28th. Christian was 6 lbs. 11 oz. and 19". Cute as a bug. He was earlier than expected but we are super happy that he was (and is) healthy. Issues with my health had me in and out of the hospital from week 35 on and the doctors decided that it was better for both of us if I had a c-section at 38 weeks. Now we have a girl and a boy and we are done.
What a difference from having one child to having two. Just don't have enough hands or time to do everything. Very different but loving it. Feeling the no-sleep, not-enough-time, what-shower, where'd-I-put-my-purse, gotta-pack-the-diaper-bag feelings again after three years. Also feeling older. Ancient some days. I know plenty of people have had kids around 40 years old and I wonder if they felt as tired as I do at times.
CJ is our last child. Part of me is relieved and part of me is so sad. After lots of soul searching and knowing that the risks and problems will only get worse each year, we decided to have my tubes tied. DH said he would have the big "V" but after discussing all the options between us and with my doctors the best decision was to take care of me. Such a big decision and so emotional. It is hard knowing that I'll never have another baby, especially after trying for so many years and Kate being such a surprise.
I just wanted to put out a little blurb since I'm finally back online.
