Re: Third Trimester????

I am another one of those at the end of the month, i am 23 weeks today. I found out really early we were prego, beggining of 4th weeks i think. So I feel like I have been prego FOREVER. I do love this part when I can feel baby and see baby jumping all over. And its so exciting to know what I am having finally. But I so look forward to giving birth and prayfully feeling somewhat normal horomonally again.



I have been married to my marine for 10 wonderful years and spend my time knitting and happily homeschooling our 9 yo girl, 6 yo boy, 18 month old girl and our newest addition arrived 30 days early on Sept 23 at 1:05 pm weighing 5 lbs 11oz.

I have in the past after yds was born considered an IUD. My BFF has had a copper IUD since 2008 and loves hers.

I am always fearful of the "what if's" they list, like the IUD moving and needing surgical removal because it gets lost, or breakthrough bleeding (which it seems every contraception I have tried other than barrier makes me bleed for months). I like the IUD idea vs surgery though, simply because I can change my mind later if I want. I think I am just scared to commit to a device. I appreciate you reminding me of an IUD. The idea of an IUD is actually appealing to me at the moment. And there is no harm to just maybe just give it a try first perhaps. Thanks for the suggestion!

Re: Third Trimester????

Hehehe...We have the same due date, LOL. It was a scary realization this morning that I am in double digits already. Which means I am cleared for an Unassisted homebirth (hoping for #3) in like 11 weeks.
