I’m baking up a baby hummingbird.

So, yeah, this happened. And there I was on Twitter not long ago, going on about only wanting one child and that I was done.


I started feeling pukey and kind of off but thought the stress of our move was a big part of it. Then I peed on a stick. Positive. I peed on another stick. Positive. Wow.


I’ll be honest. Because of the awful experience I had with the doctors throughout my pregnancy and delivery of the hummingbird, I’m scared and full of anxiety about possibly going through that again. But I think it’s doubtful and I need to keep good thoughts. Another great thing about moving to Maine is we’re not required to see military doctors! Halle-fucking-lujah!!

I was going to save this news, especially since I’m early in the pregnancy (and because of the miscarriage I had a few years ago just a few days after announcing I was pregnant) but this isn’t something I could keep to myself for the next few months.

I’m feeling really overwhelmed with everything going on but giddy at the same time. I really want this baby so bad, even though I kept on telling myself that one is plenty.

Now run for cover before my crazy ass pregnancy hormones kick in!

    Lots of hugs, and prayers for a calm and easy pregnancy, and that you find a doctor or midwife who will listen to you and take the very best care of you! Cheers to the hummingbird, who gets to be a big sister! Perhaps this will be the answer to fully healing from the trauma of your first experience. I have read and reread your first birth story and honestly would feel the same about going through that again. (heck, my first was pretty textbook, and when I found out I was pregnant with #2, I had a day of absolute panic and flipped out, telling my husband “You mean I have to give birth AGAIN?? nope, not gonna do it!”)
    Everyone is different, every birth is different, and you will be a rockstar!

  17. Rachel June 24, 2013 at 06:51 #

    Congratulations to you and your family! I think you will have a better experience in Maine with non-military docs. Will keep you in my prayers for a safe and happy pregnancy.

  18. Marie June 24, 2013 at 07:08 #

    Congratulations! Hope its delightfully easy pregnancy with no heartburn and healthy food cravings 🙂

    CONGRATULATIONS! Maine Med is a GREAT place to have a baby. Had both of mine there and all the docs and nurses were great. Except for the nurse with my first baby who on my first night woke me up what seemed like every ten minutes for blood pressure checks. She made up for it the next night by dealing with the tarlike newborn poop!

  20. Megly Mc June 24, 2013 at 22:21 #

    Awwww congrats!!! I delivered in a military hospital the first time, but I was saved because I had civvy midwives. The uniformed drs were a nightmare in OB.

    Best wishes to you!!! xoxoxo
