Number Two

My little man with his bunny from Nana

Now that we are settled in our new home {house tour post in the works!} and we love this kiddo more than anything, we have started talking about a second baby. We both always knew we wanted at least two kids. We want them close in age and I am afraid to wait much longer with the issues we had getting pregnant the first time. The question now is when and how. When do we start trying? How long do we try on our own before going back to the RE? Do we go straight back to the RE even though our diagnosis is Unexplained? Does my body know what to do now that I have been pregnant?

One positive thing this time is that we now have Infertility insurance coverage, up to $10,000. For my last treatments, we were 100% out of pocket and we spent almost $7,000. Of course Grayson is priceless so it didn't matter, but it sure is nice to know that if we need help again, we have coverage.

I miss being pregnant. I miss all the milestones of pregnancy. I miss the excitement. I miss my belly and his kicks. I even miss the doctor appointments. I know, I am weird :) I really loved that entire experience. Even though his delivery wasn't smooth, I even miss that. Everything was new and exciting, and I loved all of it.

One of Nick's friends and his wife have inspired me... I really want to wait to find out the gender of this baby. I know what pregnancy and birth are like now, so I think it would be fun to keep something a mystery. I imagine the doctor pulling the baby out {my OB and hospital do not do VBAC's, so I will have another c-section} and announcing "It's a ....." in the OR. How exciting would that be?!?! And then Nick and I can tell our families in recovery. I just think that would be so cool :) Hopefully we can stick to that plan.

I'll post more once we get closer to this next part of our journey.

xoxo,
Megan

  2. We think alike Megan. Even though I am so happy that Ari is finally here, I miss being pregnant and all of the excitement that came along with it. My hubby and I have always dreamed of having more than one child. With how hard it was to have #1, part of me keeps telling myself I should be content and happy with one. However, I really want to give Ari a sibling some day. I want to experience all of "this" again - this being watching Ari grow and change every day. It's SO much fun! Big decisions ahead and to be honest, I'm scared to enter the ttc world again.

    1. I know what you mean about being scared. It's exciting, but it's different for us now. Hopefully we will have different journey's to #2!

  3. You do make darn cute kids! Good luck and I'm praying you don't have to go through the IF rollercoaster again. But that's awesome you have coverage this time if you do.

  4. Yay!! I can't wait to see where your new journey takes you! Hopefully it's fast and you don't need any medical intervention--though I'm really glad you'll have insurance if you need it. I think we're going Team Green if we can get pregnant again, too. F is even more into it than I am, but we figure we already have everything we need whether boy or girl, so why not? I wonder if we'll get to be pregnant again together...that would be awesome =)

  5. So what insurance do you have that covers infertility? We don't have any coverage.
