Now that the dust has settled a bit

I had serious moments of "What the fuck have we done" and the whole "this ruins everything" emotion that I guess is natural with a surprise like this one yesterday.

I'm sure I will still have moments like that. Having 2 kids just a little more than 2 years apart is a challenge that I was not really planning on facing any time soon. All the comments I've received in congrats and well wishes have really boosted my confidence and this morning, I woke up excited at what our future as a family holds.

Donnie even said that he is getting excited too and that is far from the initial reaction I actually imagined. Already he is rubbing my belly and talking about Quinlon being a big brother. He seems to think we are having a girl and despite my initial feelings of it being a boy, I am feeling a lot of my intuition in the direction of girl. We really have no preference, but hot damn, I would LOVE to knit some girly, lacey, things with ribbons and all... LOL

Added the widget back. It's nice to see an old friend. I can take credit a being the spearhead of this widget's growing popularity. I LOVE it and was super excited to find it. I was actually look for widgets for my Mac laptop and came across that one for websites and the rest is history. Can't wait until Panda looks less like an alien and more like little baby.

Ok, back to knitting and cleaning...

OMG! I "met" you on TTCAL and have not followed your blog for many months. I popped on today to see these two pink lines! Congratulations to you and Donnie and Quin. My girl is still bfing and not sleeping through the night too at 15 months. I'm not listening to any of the cio "advice" or the other nonesense I hear either. Good for you.

oh trust me, everyone feels like that. cannon was planned and even when i did see the 2 lines appear on a pregnancy test it was still an 'omg omg omg' reaction. you will be just fine, you are an awesome mom and both of your babies are so lucky to have you. :)

Yay! Sometimes I worry, too, about how the heck I am going to handle two, but I'm sure it will come naturally for both of us. :)

I have had those moments in the early stages of every single one of my pregnancies! Cooper and Maren are 20 months apart and Maren and Briar are 28 months apart - there is definitely a learning curve to having kiddos so close in age, but they ADORE each other and will (hopefully) continue to be best friends as they grow up . . . you will do great!

(And I know you know this, but be gentle with yourself . . . I nursed Maren until I was about 14 weeks pregnant with Quinn - it took A LOT of energy, but it was worth it, and helped with some of the, "OMG! What have we done?!" feelings.)

i'm right there with you on wondering how i'll handle another kid, but things will work out. if for no other reason than they have to!

Jess, I can't even tell you how man "WTF HAVE DONE?!" moments that I've had. Well, I'm sure you read my "I've ruined my perfect 1 boy, 1 girl family! WAAAAAAAAH" thread. *eye roll*

It still comes and goes for me. It seems like the sicker I am, the more I 'regret' this, and the better I feel the more excited I am.

It's normal to have those "WTF" feelings. I had them with Zilla and him and Nae are 6 years apart. Congrats again! I'm so very happy for you!
*HUGS*

Congrats!! I know the feeling. I am nine weeks away from my due date. And my little ones will be 22 months apart. Both girls. So scary and exciting. I think you will do great!!
