Due Nov 2, with baby #4



We thought we were done when DS3 was born, but surprise! We got a BFP yesterday morning (two, actually)... we were practicing NFP, so I know my conception date. Going by that, I'm due November 2.

Total shock... between NFP, condoms, EBF around the clock, and next to no alone time for mama and daddy, we figured we were safe from a surprise BFP . Especially given that we had a lot of trouble and two miscarriages while conceiving our first three.

We have three boys. DS1 (Bodie) was born May 2007, DS2 (Oren) was born Ocotober 2011, and DS3 (Greyson) was born July 2011. So after November, I'll have a 5 year old, 3 year old, almost 17 month old, and a newborn! I'm terrified, but just hoping for some sticky dust and a healthy baby right now!

Congrats to you! We tried for over a year to conceive DS1, and then 18 months for DS2. That wait was so hard it, but so worth it! An unplanned pregnancy is so ironic for us... as scared as I am, I can't help but laugh.

And thank you, for your husband's service! My DH served 9 years, and got out before DS1 was born to finish school. I miss the military life, but do not miss the deployments!

Thanks . You'd think I would have it down by now, but sometimes I feel like a total first-time mama with DS3!

congratulations!!

I'm also expecting #4, our kids are pretty close in age too.

my ds2 and dd were 18 months (less a day ) and it was easy peasy with them.

Thanks everyone! I'm terrified, but really looking forward to adding another blessing to our family!

It's nice to see several other mamas expecting #4, how exciting!
