Finally!

Oh my LJ Friends, you have no idea how hard it has been for me not to tell you that I am pregnant.

Here’s what happened:

As we got closer to logging in our dossier with China, it became obvious that the increasing popularity of the program meant that we’d likely wait a minimum of two years for our baby.

So I suggested to Damon that we might take one more crack at getting pregnant. If it happened quickly enough it wouldn’t interfere with the adoption timeline. Damon said he was all for it, provided nothing jeopardized us going to China on schedule. While the bio baby was theoretical at this point, the Chinese baby is concrete to us and neither one of us was willing to do anything to fool with that.

The next part of the plan was fertility testing. We still didn’t want any treatments, but thought it would be good to know if there was any point in trying again. One of those tests for me was called hysterosalpingogram. A doctor injected dye through my reproductive system and then watched on a monitor to see if there were any blockages. We got the all clear, and the information that the test tended to enhance fertility for a few months. And that was all it took. About a week after the test I was pregnant, although I wouldn’t know it for a few weeks.

This all went on in early January. I’ll be 13 weeks tomorrow and am due 10/7. It’s been a little bit of a bumpy ride, complete with miscarriage scares, which has made it a little easier to keep the secret. But now I’ve seen fetus gymnastics on the sonogram and am starting to feel like we’re in business.

All of this also explains why I’ve been so absent from LJ. On one hand, I haven’t been feeling so perky. On the other hand, it’s hard to skirt the subject entirely and still post anything authentic.

I will warn you, it’s my first time being pregnant. I’m pretty sure I invented the condition and everything about it is fascinating. Feel free to skip my posts if you find this annoying.
My feelings won’t be hurt.

Damon and I are over the moon. Two kids in two years is a kind of insanity, but we’re up for it. And after that, I will be closing up shop. Because two… is my absolute limit.

Who likes the idea of a “Where the Wild Things Are” bedroom for two little kids?

  6. I’m just so absolutely thrilled for you. I had really hoped that you would find this happened as soon as the adoption was a sure thing–it’s funny how often that actually happens–but I didn’t want to say so. πŸ˜€

    • Thank you! My father does not have your restraint and has spent plenty of time yelling “I told you! I told you!” into the phone. Which is hilarious. He’s over the moon over knowing he’s got TWO grandchildren on the way. It has also helped cool him out on calling me every few days to ask if it was time to go to China yet.

      • Well, this is the perfect way to go about it. They’ll be so close in age and you only have to go through labor once!

  11. In case I haven’t made myself really clear, I’m probably going to be obnoxious about this. And then when you get a date to go to China, I’m going to be obnoxious about that too. I won’t want to be, but I won’t be able to help myself.

      I am grateful to you for the offer. I’m fully committed, but having never done it it’s good to know I’ve got a pro as a friendly resource. And how perfect that I can just carry on until the China baby gets here and, I hope, I’ll be producing plenty for her too. She may not be willing to learn to nurse, but at the very least I’m sure I can get it in her somehow.

      • I think the time could really be so wonderful. You may turn out to be a great pumper, too, and be able to give your second child breastmilk in a cup if she won’t take it from on tap. She might take well to nursing though!

      • Fingers and toes crossed. I want to get myself one of those no-kidding-around hospital grade pumps so that I’ve got the best chance of success.
        But yeah, I’d love to actually nurse both babies if #2 will take to it.

  86. Congratulations, and a safe and happy pregnancy to you all! Having personally invented the condition of having two kids, I can assure you that it is insanity indeed, but fun anyhow.
    I gave your name to my cool neighbors, who are thinking of adopting. Well, not your name, exactly, just told them I would ask you if you’d share your experience with them. They’re still on the fence about many things but are talking about China in a way that suggests to me that they don’t know a lot of the details about the adoption process.

      I’d be delighted if my OCD-like level of adoption research could help some cool people. They should feel free to email me at jaysaint at gmail dot com. From there I’ll be happy to e-share or give them my phone number.

  88. Congratulations, and a safe and happy pregnancy to you all! Having personally invented the condition of having two kids, I can assure you that it is insanity indeed, but fun anyhow.
    I gave your name to my cool neighbors, who are thinking of adopting. Well, not your name, exactly, just told them I would ask you if you’d share your experience with them. They’re still on the fence about many things but are talking about China in a way that suggests to me that they don’t know a lot of the details about the adoption process.

  97. Fingers and toes crossed. I want to get myself one of those no-kidding-around hospital grade pumps so that I’ve got the best chance of success.
    But yeah, I’d love to actually nurse both babies if #2 will take to it.

  98. Thanks so much!
    I love your announcement magnet artistry. If you have photos I’d love to see one. I’m glad we’re not the only Sendak fans. I feel like those stories will give my kids a good idea of what I’m hoping for for them.
