Ok friends, there seemed to be many inquiries about my last post... To set the record staright, YES Mindi and I will be trying for Harris' sibling ASAP. (hence the pregnancy tests, sperm, etc.
I am currently still waiting for my first post partum period, but I have an appointment with my Ob/Gyn on April 3rd. During that appointment, I will most likely get my annual exam, and I will also be consulting on the potential to have her jumpstart my periods. Before becoming pregnant with Harris, I was diagnosed with PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome). Many of you may be familiar with it- I know ther were a few other girls that had the same problem. PCOS basically screws up ovulation and cycles. She may, once again, give me an Rx for Metformin, which will help my ittle ovaries calm down and start working again, along with (possibly) progesterone to get aunt flo in gear. Because I am not breastfeeding, my period should not stay away for long. At that appointment, I will speak to her about when it is feasable for us to begin IUIs again. I know that there is a possibility that I could get pregnant right away, and I know that there is a possibility that I may not get pregnant for 2 more years. We just have to try try try. If I could have my wish, I would get pregnant again RIGHT AWAY. Some people may think that I am crazy, but here is my reasoning...
1. I want a sibling for Harris that is VERY CLOSE in age. I want this because I feel (from my own experience, as well as Mindi's) that siblings closer in age are more closely bonded during their childhood through adolesence.
2. I am really excited to give birth again. While I did not especially enjoy being pregnant, I LOVED the experience of giving birth- man, it was INCREDIBLE!!!
3. If Mindi and I decide that we want more than 2 kids, we will not be getting too old to have a whole whord of them... ;)
4. More tax deductions. No, that was just a joke ha ha.
And for your viewing pleasure, her is a little video of tummy time- yes, he makes noise! A lot of noise! Weeee!
