It’s funny how we were planning to have another baby later this year or early next year only to find out days later that I was already 1 month along, hahaha!
So without even trying, we’ll be expecting a sibling for Damien sometime in September 2020.
I suspected that I was pregnant about two weeks ago when I started feeling crampy after an intense workout. Yes, I was working out like there’s no tomorrow for the past several months and it’s a good thing that this didn’t affect the baby so far. That’s gonna stop soon, I’m afraid.
A couple of nights back, I felt persistent cramping in my lower abdomen after spending hours at the mall with Damien and the hubs. That’s when I asked the husband to get me a pregnancy test. I couldn’t wait for the morning to take the test so I took one as soon as we got home. It tested positive and I just stood there for a second trying to process the whole thing.
I showed the test to the hubs and we literally spent the next one and a half-hour in shock. Not that we’re unhappy for being pregnant – quite the opposite because we wanted Damien to have a brother or a sister before he turns two – we just didn’t think conceiving would be this easy. And that we’d be conceiving this soon.
This early, I am already thinking of a good baby name. I felt that I’ll have another boy but I am crossing my fingers for a girl. Dorian Rocco is the working name right now. I like Rocco because it’s modern and Dorian is the name that we’ve already had in mind for a second boy. Vivienne Celetine still, if it’s a girl.
The good news, we’re doing this a second time so I feel that things will be less stressful to handle as far as where to give birth, what baby stuff to get, etc. Our only issue now is finding a full-time yaya for our little Peach!
So yes! Our family is growing soon so watch this space!
