We'll Be Home For Christmas

Recently, a friend asked Sophia if she wanted a baby brother or a sister. "I want TWO sisters!" was our toddler's emphatic reply. Which wouldn't have worried me, except for the dreams I'd been having ALL WEEK about giving birth to twins. And if I were a superstitious person, I'd say the double-yolked egg we cracked for breakfast would've been a scary sign.

If you hadn't guessed yet, we're pregnant! And it was quite a relief when last week's early ultrasound showed just ONE tiny bean with a beating heart.

7-week Ultrasound

7-Week Ultrasound

At the beginning of the year when my Crohn's Disease was really bad, we were thinking about baby number two but were worried about a high-risk pregnancy. After three months of success with the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and feeling great without any scary medications, we decided to go for it.

My body must be in a really healthy place, because the first month we tried, "Voila!" We weren't expecting it to happen so quickly, as it took five months to conceive Sophia. And get this—according to the ultrasound, my expected due date is December 25, 2007. No joke! The midwife checked and re-checked her due date calculator in disbelief. Start placing your bets...
