Re: June 2013
Joining in :-) This will be #6, due June 6. This is only the second time ever that I'll get to be in the early part of a ddc. In 4 of 5 pregnancies I've been due the 23rd or later.
I would just like to say that my absolute favorite thing about Diaperswappers is that I don't feel like a total freak of nature of expecting number 6, though all the fluffy goodness comes in a close second :-) Sometime, I get so used to all the big families "around" here, that when I go back to RL and get the comments from people, dirty looks, etc, I'm look, "Huh? Oh, right. People think we are totally irresponsible or total weirdos." Oh, well. I can get past it, I just really like that I don't feel that here at all!
I'm going to wait probably a month to tell anyone at work, I guess. I'll probably tell our family around the same time too, I suppose, though I was thinking it would be fun to just not tell people and let them figure it out... Or maybe a facebook announcement about "cheaper by the half-dozen?" though a lot of our family isn't on fb and we aren't really either... Don't know yet. I'm only 3w5d, so super early, but I was thinking to tell my couple of girl friends this week, cuz I'm just so excited.
Though, I do feel surprisingly guilty. Like, who am I to want another when I already have 5 amazing kids? But I do... Anyone else with a lot feel that way, or is it just me?
Congrats to everyone! So excited for the next 8 months :-)
