Let me start this out by saying I am NOT pregnant.
But how do you know when your ready? Last night I kissed Tim bye before he headed to work ( because we are back to him working nights ) tucked Ethan in bed and settled in front of the TV with a glass of wine and turned on "What to Expect When Your Expecting", you know the new Cameron Diaz movie based off of the book. It was cute, definitely cheesy, but a cute movie none the less. Well at the end of the movie -spoiler alert- all these different women in their different situations ( easy pregnancy, crazy pregnancy, adoption etc) have their babies on the same night, and I lost it. Next thing I know I'm sitting there boo hooing thinking about pregnancy and wondering if I'm ready for another one.
Now my immediate answer to that is NO! As much as I like the thought of getting pregnant again and having another sibling for Ethan I know that we aren't ready. Financially we have a ways to go and will definitely need to have moved into a bigger house ( which in itself is a whole post), and with Tim most likely getting out of the Navy next year I want to know that he will have a new job before we have another little one.
But at the same time I want to say " things will have a way of working themselves out" and that we should go for it. Yes that's my heart talking, not my head. But I do miss being pregnant, the good, the bad, all of it.
So now the questions how will we know when we're ready?
Because I don't we'll ever know, we just have to go with our gut and hope for the best.
