Officially fertile...

Well, possibly fertile anyways. As of this morning my IUD is out and hopefully pregnancy has straightened out my body and my cycles return normally.

We're not going to start trying for #2 until August, but wanted to see if I even ovulate since we had so much trouble last time. I'm so excited, nervous, anxious, you name it about having two kids. I want a sibling for Wyatt so much though. I want him to have a built in playmate as a kid and I hope that her and his brother or sister are close their whole lives. 

We're doing things a little differently this time. The plan is to not tell our family that we're trying to get pregnant. We've told a few friends over here, but it really want it to be a total surprise for our families. I'm even planning on playing it off like we're waiting until next year (with our history it may very we'll take a year to get PG). We're hoping for a due date in May/June/July which would make a thanksgiving or Christmas announcement fun. It's easier for us to keep that kind of thing a secret from our family since we live 3 hours away and only see them sporadically. 

I had been really struggling with the thought of this pregnancy being my last. While the weeks 5-21 sucked in my pregnancy with Wyatt I thoroughly enjoyed weeks 22-40...like a lot....like as much as I loves meeting Wyatt I was sad I wasn't pregnant anymore. My conundrum? I'm pretty set on only  having 2 kids even though I feel like I would enjoy being pregnant more than twice. That has lead me to VERY seriously consider being a gestational carrier (surrogate) after #2 is born. Obviously I'm going to just see how pregnancy #2 goes first, and maybe I'll change my mind, but right now it's something I really want to do. I'm really hoping that I have a happy healthy second pregnancy so that it's an option in the future. 

So that's what's going on in that department....we'll be trying for another baby starting in August so fingers crossed it doesn't take 11 months like last time...and I really hope to be a surrogate in a few years.

Someday I'll get around to getting pictures off the camera and on here :-) there may be a few picture heavy posts down the road!
