Party of FIVE! We're PREGNANT!




Well if I could, just to let you know, NFP DOES WORK I just suck at it! I was a little unsure if it was "safe" and apparently I ovulated three days later....so those little guys were a waitin'. Im in complete shock. When this precious lamb is born I will have a two year old and a one year old (three months later I would have a three year old, a two year old and a three month old baby). AAHHHHH! I may not be blogging this time next year! lol! I may not be going much of anywhere. So..once again we are going to pray that I don't get insulin dependent gestational diabetes.. but I've been 2 for 2 so my chances are high to have it this time as well. But either way, we do whatever it takes to get a healthy baby! I think my due date will be June 2, but I always deliver 2 weeks early so it looks like middle May. I guess that whole pregnant in a bridesmaid dress thing is pretty much solved...although I will be nursing my baby at the wedding. OH MY! I cant believe it. well I hope you guys enjoy that blog water because it is definately potent!

Congrats! The rhythm method (I assume you were using something similiar to that) is what we have used the whole time we've been married (unless you count the total of 5 months I was on the Pill... Quinn asked me never to do that again). Pregnant four times (one miscarriage). Dr. Radbill always said that he calls people who use that method "parents". What a blessing!

Yea! You are an amazing mother and God has chosen to spread His Word through the world by allowing you another life to shape. You are blessed and honored by Him!

It was funny to me to recognize your two sweet ones at the park on Sunday. I haven't seen them in person, but I have spent enough time on your blog that I recognized them right away! (then I saw and recognized Jorge, it was good to see him again) By the way, Dobermans are great!

Potent, indeed! I wondered if you wouldn't be next ... God grants our desires, even if they're secret and incomplete. Am I crazy?

YAY, YAY, YAY - I'm so glad you were next. My heart sank when I saw the post on myspace and I thought if she isn't pregnant I'm gonna be sad - what bigger news could there be!! Now, let's get the ticker going! YAY - so happy for you!!

Woo hoo! Congrats! Okay, I totally can't count because when I saw "party of five" I thought, "is she having twins?" Whose the next taker of the blog water?!!!

Okay, so I woke up in the middle of the night last night and sat up in bed and thought "Rachel is having a girl". No, no prophetess here, I was just thinking of the way you got pregnant and some say that if the "stuff" is sitting there before you start ovulating then, if you get pregnant, it will be a girl.

I don't know why I thought of that in the middle of the night. We shall see anyhow.

kim.. i would love for you to be a prophetess! ha! Im also not supersticious (sp?) but I checked the chinese birth chart, which was correct with the boys, and five out five charts said GIRL! I just hope the Lord agrees with that. I mean, I know its already been decided.. and you are absolutely right..the further you are away from ovulation....which we were three to four days away..we'll see. I always said that I hoped for at least four kids and that I could definatley see them all being boys.. but maybe this one will be our Eva. Oh by the way, that would be here name. Eva Isabell.

I love that you thought that in the middle of the night.. good stuff. you crack me up.

Yep, I would guess a girl too. :)

As for the paci thing with Jorge, you can do it ... believe it or not my sil just took both from both of her boys at the same time. Hers are 29mo and 12mo. It's worked out great for them so far.

Zach ... our paci giver-upper is 28mo. Sam will be 4 in December. He gave his up when he was 26mo. HTH.

hey kim.. i actually was going to say that Natural Family Plannng is a little more militant than the rythm method.. I have to chart my basil body temps before i get out of bed, chart my cycle length and (this is gross for the guys) my mucus. So I knew that my fertility was around the corner, but I just didn't think the corner was as close as it was. I didnt' hit ovulation on the mark, but i did not consider the factor that those little swimming fellas can live for 5 days. so they were wating. But the good thing is that God is the one who opens and closes the womb.. so even though I prayed I would not be pregnant, he knew better what His plan for me was. Many a woman has hit ovulation on the mark and not been pregnant, but God wanted me to have this baby.. so have this baby I will. I think rythym only counts the days of the cycle and not the other two factors (temp and mucus). fyi.. that's probably more info than what you wanted.
