Back on the Fertility Train Again

Over the past few months, my husband and I have been talking about 2.0.  You know, baby number 2.  Between the two of us, one was not on board.  At first Jon didn't want a second, then I got intimidated by the idea... and then over the holidays we both had an epiphany that we'd like to increase our family to include one more child.

For a while, I didn't want to share this with anyone.  When people knew we were hoping to have our first, I felt a lot of pressure.  Well meaning friends and family members would ask in their own way how that was going.  If I were at an event and I was choosing to drink water, I'd get looks or questions about whether I was expecting.  In the first couple of months of trying, this wasn't too much of a big deal...

Months turned to years... and still we were struggling.  Until, almost 2 years ago we got pregnant.  Then lost that pregnancy.  And then got pregnant the very next cycle.

So, I was nervous to tell people that we were expanding our family.  But one side effect of that choice was not saying anything here on the blog.  This community, though I don't know any of you in person, pulled me through some of the toughest times we had.  Though, I hope that I'm not going to have issues with 2.0, I know that if I do... I can come here. 

So there it is.  A run for 2.0.
