V$ and I agreed that after our cruise we would be ready for a baby. After 10 months of waiting of course I was ready for a baby RIGHT NOW, but this time around I didn't chart or over obsess over getting pregnant like I did with Vayden. Because I'm in tune with my body and have a regular cycle I knew when I ovulated, how do you think I didn't get pregnant in these last 10 months? :)

On April 3,2010 I woke up at 3am from a very clear and very real like dream that I tested + on a HPT, sooooo because the dream was so real, I got up and took a test. BFN, I went to bed trying hard not to cry, I figured that if this was our month that by April 3rd I would get my + HPT. That morning I wrote off being pregnant that month and went for some much need retail therapy. By April 5th (Vashon's 3rd birthday) and still no AF but still sure that I was just a few days late and not pregnant. I sat V$ down and told him that we could hold off TTC until October 2010 since he's supposed to deploy in January -February. I didn't want to be selfish and have the baby while he was gone, that would more than likely be our last child and given the birth experience he got with Vayden I wanted him to be there for the rainbow baby.

We took Vashon bowling for his birthday and while Vashon was waiting for his turn he told us he was sad, when we asked why as sighed walked away and sat down as if he was bored. V$ looked at me and said he needs a brother or sister.

The night of April 5th I couldn't stop eating carrots and couldn't get well rested in bed, I told myself I would hold off til the 8th to test again but I couldn't help it. So on April 6th at 7:30am I found out that I was

While V$ was at work I chose to surprise him so I wrote a note and put the test in this box and addressed it like it came from someone else.

This is what he read

We are so excited, and I have such great feelings about this baby. Like I said 2010 is going to be our year and this baby is due December 10, 2010. I am going to walk in faith that we are going to be blessed with a healthy happy child, that gets to come home with us, and that this pregnancy will go smooth.
Keep us in your prayers.
