"Daddy says we can have another baby!"

Recommended Posts

That's what I woke up to this morning! While I was out at a charity event last night my husband sat and talked to the kids about the idea, to make sure they would be okay. Seems he realized most of his worries were that they would resent another kid (he has issues with his own siblings). Then they elected my 6 yr old daughter to be the one to tell me :)

 

(actually, originally it was the youngest who was elected, but when my husband had him practice what to say he kept saying "Daddy says we can have TWO babies" so he got fired, lol)

 

I honestly am SOOOOOO happy! (and already have an appt on the 4th to get the IUD out)

If you do end up having twins we are ALL showing up to celebrate!  :party:

 

IN the meantime, so happy for you!

I'll need the help after my husband keels over from the shock, lol. 

 

My father is a twin, has another set of twin brothers, and his mother was a twin. There's a 50/50 chance he inherited the hyper ovulation gene, and if he did he would have passed it to me. But since neither myself or my sister have had twins I'm thinking unlikely. 

 

Plus I have home births, and twins would rule that out. But if it happens, I won't complain.

OH, and I did tell the kids that you NEVER know if you will actually get a baby. But we can hope for one :)

That is exciting for you!  You must be a lot younger than me, because if  I was pregnant now I would be almost 70 by the time the baby graduated high school. Yikes!

That's so exciting!! I'm happy for you! I know what it is like to desperately want another baby. I'm glad your husband is on board with the idea.

Your husband is so sweet. What an awesome way to handle that.

 

He really is. Honestly, as upset as I was about not having a baby, I was even more upset about there being something between us...I don't like it when we aren't on the same page. We make a great team.

I am a hyperovulator. It's not just genetic. After a period of hormone flux, or with increasing maternal age, it can happen to anyone.

I'm so happy for you! I know you've been waiting for this agreement. Our caboose baby arrived when I was 43.5 and is closing in on his second birthdayâ¤

Thanks! I'm taking DHEA and CoQ10 as they have been shown to help with ovarian reserve and egg quality in older women. And a prenatal, extra folate, calcium/D/Magnesium. And fish oil. Hoping that plus a history of being easily fertile counts in my favor.

dh will be 75. .  . and we still don't have any grandkids.  he's often mistaken for the grandfather.  he says 'we're having our own'.

oh, I'm glad to see the fish oil.  good quality.  it's so crucial in brain development (the corpus callosum specifically) - starting in utero.  for boys' especially.

I have honestly never known any couple who deliberated the idea more than you two have. (LOL)

I should say, one of the deciding factors was a surprise. I put on the old Lucille Ball movie "Yours, Mine and Ours" the other night. He really liked it, and the way they found ways to make things work, and seeing how the siblings helped each other out. He said it was the best thing I could have shown him. 

 

Gotta tell you, that $2.99 rental was the best money I ever spent!

I'm PRETTY good. And at this point, after diapering 3 kids I know what I like and even more, know what I don't like. I dislike pocket diapers, they ALWAYS leak for me. Always. I think, and this sounds dumb, but I think all the darned dog hair in my house gets inside, and pokes holes in the laminate or something. 

 

My favorites are Mother Ease Sandy's (but now they have a new trim fit version I'll have to try) and regular old pre-folds. I have a zillion Pre-folds already, some that are now 16 years old. And I've already gone through my wool phase, so that's good. I like it, but again, with pets I end up with dog and cat hair stuck on them and can never seem to get it off. Not attractive. Love pull on covers like Bummis. 

 

So a few covers, some Sandy's, and I'm good :)

Good luck! It took us 2 yrs from getting my IUD out to baby. We did have a miscarriage in there, too, though.

My ob said to try to be together every other day from day 8/9 to day 16/17 of your cycle. He calls it painting the fence method but it worked!

Hey, at least it is fun to try  :laugh:

 

I have no idea what will happen. I don't get any fertile cervical mucus with the Mirena in, so I am not sure of my cycle/ovulation/etc. But, since the Mirena thickens cervical mucus that makes sense I guess. Also, I had NONE when I concieved my son. Totally dry. So much for a dry day being "safe".  The only one I was kind of trying for, or at least not active preventing, we got pregnant the first month. So I've been very fertile in the past (other one I conceived while on birth control pills) but that doesn't mean I still will be now. But trying will be fun, and even if it never happens at least we are on the same page now.
