As many of you know, we started trying for baby #2 a few months ago. I had some checkups done to ensure my blood sugar levels were normal and I started tracking my ovulation using the e.p.t. Ovulation Calendar app since Aunt Flo was right on time for three months in a row.
We wondered if it would still take 3 years like it did to concee Rissa or would we be successful sooner?
We officially started trying in March which was around the same time I received a few e.p.t. tests to review – the analog (interpret the lines!) and digital ones.
e.p.t. is the pregnancy test brand I prefer and it was one of their digital ones that clearly told me I was pregnant with Rissa.
At the end of March I started to feel very, very tired, and my period was late. Normally that meant little to me, but the past three months had been like clockwork. I took an analog test the first day of my missed period.
The proof is in the test!
Of course, being excited and wanting to be certain, I also took another two, three, four tests! A couple digital and another analog – which are all easy to take and read. All were positive!
I trust e.p.t. but couldn’t wait to see the doctor and determine the due date. I had a pretty good idea based on the ovulation calendar though!
I’m happy to announce today that I’m going to be a mom again (not that I ever stopped!). Baby #2 is due to arrive around the beginning of December! As of today I am 11 weeks and one day along. Normally I would wait until 12 weeks to make a big announcement, but I thought Mother’s Day would be a good day to share my news! My only thing now is trying to figure out how to turn off the ovulation email alerts!
