We are excited to announce that we have a new baby coming in April of 2013! Choosing to have another child is difficult. I was ready for number one, okay when number two came, shocked that number 3 snuck in, frustrated that 4 had such perceived bad timing-and then this time. This little number 5 has been the hardest. Coming off of birth control was the hardest decision I've made at this point-I cried before and after my Drs appointment. 3 of my 4 are in school. Vinny is an easy kid who still takes naps. I felt a glimpse of freedom that had been only on the horizon for so long. And yet, the nagging didn't stop. I couldn't find the peace I searched for. So, the decision was made and here we are.
I'm so excited and overwhelmed. I wish I was in better shape, weighed less, and was younger. But hey, I'm a mother of four, and here I find myself. I've been pretty sick and don't enjoy that, but it will hopefully pass within a few weeks.
We are pretty sure it is another boy. I thought for sure Ammon was a girl, and Vinny-so maybe I'm just changing tactics ;)
Probably no one would ever believe me if I told them I wanted a boy. But honestly, I am so in love with each of my boys and each one is so different-that another boy would be wonderful. And honestly, a very comfortable idea for me. My gut is saying it is a boy for what that is worth.
We are also setting a record in the surgical residency program for the most children ever by a surgeon resident here at the Marshfield Clinic. We had been tied at 4.
