Water retention and...baby #4??
Wednesday, April 24, 2013
So I hopped on the scale to find that I was right! The pizza definitely had me retaining some water! I'm back down to 190. It's not where I want to be, but it's in the right direction!
Hubby and I were watching the season finale of Bones season 6. We are totaly addicted and Netflix has enabled us to watch EVERY EPISODE! After our youngest came into the living room for the umpteenth time to say he had to pee, I made a comment about how big the kids were getting and how it made me sad.
His comeback: He's been thinking about how nice it would be to have another baby.
I would love to have another baby, if we could guarantee it would be a girl! But to hear that from the man who, after taking on my oldest as his own, only wanted ONE of his own? My jaw dropped! I would kind of like to have a fourth. But I really have mixed feelings about it. He made a good point that this one would probably grow up alone. My youngest is 4 yrs old and he was talking about having another in the next 2 yrs or so. So that would put 6 yrs between them. There are 5 yrs between my oldest and middle child. So, I'm not sure.
But I HAVE been putting off getting a test. Sometimes I feel like I could be pregnant. I've been having heartburn and feeling sleepy all the time. Ugh. I'm not ready to put my body through that again. But I want another baby! And not just bc it's a baby. I want to enjoy watching another little one grow up! I love kids! I came from a big family. So I kinda feel like four would be the perfect stopping point! And now we are in a pretty nice financial position to take on another child. I don't know.
