Still in shock? I am!

I laughed so hard as I read all of your comments on my last surprising post~ I pretty much said the same things, from Holy crap to you have got to be kidding me...

We weren't planning on trying until June when we were in Scotland, but this little bean evidently wanted to be there too and not just a souvenir! Seriously, it took us nearly 2 years to get pregnant with Lily....a surprise pregnancy, me? Every month with trying to get pregnant with Lily was timing out the days, having sex, putting my feet in the air, not moving for like 2o minutes to give the swimmers some time to get on their journey. This one...nothing. Yep, good times were had then went straight back to enjoying a Saturday afternoon.

I called my ob-gyn and told them that I was pregnant...an hour later, the doctor HIMSELF called to congratulate me. One point for Mr. Second Opinion doctor! My first appointment is on May 11th, so that we can do an u/s and (please, God!) see a heartbeat. My left tube is kind of rough terrain, so first things first, is making sure that the baby is in my uterus. He has already told me that we will do a c-section at week 37 (if not a little before depending on how my uterus is holding up), which will put this baby coming right about Dec. 3rd...Lily's estimated due date from last year. My ob-gyn was telling me that although I'm a difficult case, that he has seen worse. Which, as crappy as this sounds, makes me feel better. He was telling me on the phone the other day that he has done c-sections before where the uterus was so thin that he could see the baby through the uterine wall. I feel so blessed to have this doctor, and my trust doesn't come easily anymore.

Anyways, the news is still sinking in, and I'm causiously excited...I've only told a handful of people IRL about the new baby. I have a few people in my life that were against me getting pregnant again, so those people will be told after the first appointment. My whole family was here last night, so we did tell my family and they are over the moon excited. My mom was crying because she was so happy! We're all aware of the risks involved with this pregnancy, but I will be getting the best care available and will be closely monitored...so, I plan on enjoying this pregnancy and taking good care of myself and our new little family member~

We're tring to come up with a clever nickname for the baby instead of just saying "the baby" over and over again. Any suggestions?

I'm so happy for you. It is shocking isn't it? I know I was shocked... I like you, took forever, laying there- I pretty much laughed when I read your post, because that was us, for 2 years with Angel! How about Little Bean, or Little Bugaboo or even, The Gift or Miracle (smile)? I'm never any good with nicknames.

I am really hoping the first time is the charm for us, because 37 weeks (when I would have my c-section also) is my mom's birthday. I think that would just be awesome for her to have a new grandbaby on her birthday. AND in time for Christmas!!!!

I'm so excited for you. But I also understand you fear. I feel it too. I really do.

I'm so happy for you and your little "good times" baby! It sounds like you have a wonderful, supportive doctor, which is great. Yay!

A great idea to name that little munchkin. Let me see if I can come up with something! (If I knew you better it would have been easier!) lol! :)

I'm so happy reading this. It gives me hope that someday we won't struggle so much with infertility. I'm so happy for you. I can't wait to hear about your first u/s. We love calling this baby Number 2, because this is our second child. Maybe that would work for you, or something that means "surprise"!
