I've been dying to share some news with the community: we're having another baby, yay! I'm pretty superstitious about these things so I had to wait until I was out of the first tri to tell you (we had a loss last fall which made me extra cautious about announcing it to anyone).

I'm due on Valentine's Day; our son will be four and a half. We wanted them to be closer but some secondary infertility issues rendered that impossible... in fact we had completely given up on having a second child and were really getting comfortable with the idea of being a single-child family when we got the happy surprise. So don't necessarily believe the doctors when they tell you it's probably not going to happen!

Anyway, just had to share :)

Congratulations! That's how it went for my husband and I in between our first 2 kids. My 1st son was 3 months shy of 2 when I miscarried, and after that had ovulation issues. Then right around New Years 2010 got pregnant with our 2nd son. We too were comfortable with only having one child, and then surprise. I couldn't be happier. Enjoy your soon to be newborn valentines baby.

Awesome! And congrats! I know what you mean. When we were trying to have a 2nd child, the pregnancy test from the store said positive, & the doctor's blood test said negative. Go figure, few months after that, we finally had a positive blood test result. lol So I never trusted store pregnancy tests after that. Oddly enough, the one for my 3rd, actually was a positive store test; but still I tried the blood test just to be sure since I'm a type I diabetic. And yup, now we are a Verizon Bar family from the tallest bar to the shortest bar, or a family that makes a hand complete. :D

Congratulations!  It's been awhile since I've been on here, but I remember you talking about trying to conceive awhile back... that is WONDERFUL news for you and your family!!
