…another baby that is. To those people in my “inner circle” it is no surprise that we are (okay, I am) very interested in getting pregnant NOW. I struggle between the idea that I should go see some fertility specialist to turning it all over to God and just letting things happen. I have no idea what that conversation with the doctor would look like considering I don’t have challenges in this department (knock on wood)- and it’s worth mentioning the last time around I went to fertility acupuncture to “get things going” (what does that mean exactly?) only to find out I was already pregnant for all four visits. TYPICAL.
I have been taking pregnancy tests as often as some people floss. I am driving myself crazy with the whole thing. Today, one of my friends and I were talking about it and she reminded me that with a seven month old, things are easy. He just sits and drools and giggles and poops and says “dada” while I can still manage to get things done. When they are on the go, I guess it’s an entirely different story. Wire cords become their new favorite thing, electrical outlets seem like something that might be worth exploring and stairs? Forget it. That is just a full-blown playground. Not so fun when you are trying to breastfeed a week old baby and the older brother just decided to attempt stair diving.
When, in the course of this conversation, she sensed that my relentless pursuit of the next little bundle was not going to waiver, she advised me to look at Britney Spears. That poor girl lost it on the heels of having two babies close together. I have no interest in getting to the point where my mom or husband enters the master bedroom quietly (thinking I am getting some much-needed rest – undoubtedly needing something as basic as locating the clean nipples) only to find me shaving my head.
I have zero interest in being pregnant forever. Line ’em up and knock ’em down is my motto when it comes to matters of the changing table.
Simply put, I have the patience of a gnat. Pray that I win the fertility monitor on eBay.
