The "Splinter" Has Been Removed
So here I lie, letting the sperm do their swimming thing. JT, I do plan to work on seating charts while I am propped up on the pillows, but my lesson plans are done for the week. That's the beauty of teaching all the grades and seeing one class from each grade each day - once I do them for Monday (or in this case, Tuesday) I just repeat and refine for the rest of the week. But I digress.
It *is* different to try for #2. Obviously our logistical issues were made more challenging by having to work around Natalie's needs. But it's different psychologically, too. I swear to you, I NEVER ONCE thought to myself during our TTC and pregnancy with Natalie, "Ohmigod, what are we doing?" I knew what I wanted and was just waiting, waiting, waiting. This time, though, not more than 4 minutes after sperm entered my body, the unbidden thought came flitting through my mind. It was brief, and it was mostly about our small house and modest income, but it was a thought I hadn't experienced before.
