Yes, after 5 years and no new babies, we decided to add another one. Who doesn't want all their kids in school and then start all over again?
I have to admit, I'm scared. I'm really scared. My fibromyalgia has not been on its best behavior and I'm in a lot of pain. The doctors have given me permission to continue most of my medications but some I've had to go off of. It's been a pretty miserable experience but the outcome will be well worth it.
My husband keeps asking if I'll have a few more kids after this. Ummmm…..NO!
I struggled with this decision to have another because I was really afraid of my body reacting the way it's been acting. It was also a fear of me not being able to care for the baby the way they deserve.
I never always felt our family was complete and through a lot of prayer, this is the choice we've decided to make. Come hell or high water, this baby is going to be here in January (or sooner, given my history) and will be a blessing everyday and through every tear.
I've pretty much been confined to my bed. I was first put on bedrest for a week and I'll probably be on it later in the pregnancy. My motivation is high but my ability is low. I'm thankful to family and friends who have always helped me. I know my kids wouldn't be as well taken care of without them.
I'm excited to see what this little peach will look like and the personality they'll bring to our family. I'll be updating as much as I can and able to! XOXO
