Babies Babies

Early ovulation = Baby #3 [added picture] :)

Posted by   + Show Post

My husband and I use NFP. We did it successfully between baby #1 and baby #2.  We usually abstain from sex starting 5 days before my O day and about 3ish days after, but I ended up ovulating two days early, so we ended up only having done the deed 3 days before my O day during my fertile period.

I was expecting my period today, but I am known to be a week longer than normal since I am breastfeeding my 13 month old and sometimes thay delays my period.  I took a test anyway, like I normally do, just in case, and I could not believe it! I was super shocked at first but now I am becoming more excited about it.  At first I was worried I would have to work having a third child, but my husband will be able to make it to where I can still stay at home thankfully.  I am due February 17, a day after my daughter's 4th birthday, and my son will be 21 months old when the third one comes.

We didn't want a third baby, but we are taking this as a blessing.  We feel that God wanted us to have another child after all, hence the really random early ovulation (which never happens lol).  We thank him for this new baby. :) I feel ashamed because I used to say that if I got pregnant again, I'd abort.  As soon as I saw that positive sign, I knew that was never going to be an option.  I was talking out my butt. There's just no way I could ever do that.

When I have my c-section, I will be getting my tubes tied.


I just did this image this morning!
