When we were in Virginia Beach last May, Liz surprised my friends and myself by announcing that she wanted two Mommys. Her explanation was quite simple - She wanted me as her main mommy to play with her, and the other mommy to take care of a baby if we had one.
Well, now we're having another baby, but no, we're not getting another mommy. I'm almost 18 weeks pregnant so well into the 4th month of pregnancy.
All has been going well. I've just been really tired, but everyone says that's normal for a second pregnancy. The docs are a bit more cautious with this pregnancy and we've had a few ultrasounds and Baby Hedge looks quite great. The baby is due at the end of August and likely will come right around when Liz starts Kindergarten. They'll be five years apart.
Liz is very excited to be a big sister. She's even said to me, "I can't wait for the baby to come to help me clean up my toys." She's going to have to wait for that for a long time.
As most of you know, it's very rare for an average-height couple to have two children with achondroplasia but with that said, we're still at a higher risk of having another baby with achondroplasia. Though, the percentages are low.
We'll probably do a couple more ultrasounds when Baby Hedge is bigger and we might even find out if it's a boy or girl!
