Yes, folks… I’m expecting!
Long before we had our little guy, my husband and I discussed how many kids we wanted to have. “Let’s have four!” we had agreed. After all, we both come from large families—I have four siblings while he has five. The “large family” idea was one we both wanted to continue with our own.
And then we had our little guy, where I changed my mind. “I’m done with one,” I had said, miserable and sleep-deprived. Now that I’m less miserable and sleep-deprived and that we’ve gotten a better hang of this whole parenting business, we decided a second kid wasn’t such a bad idea. We wanted LO to have a sibling, and I felt like we were ready for another one. “This is it, though,” I warned. “We’re stopping at two.”
So imagine my surprise—among many emotions—when the doctor announced during our first sonogram, “I have good news… and better news: You’re having twins!”
Twins. Two newborns and a toddler. Wow.
And so begins this insanely new chapter of my life. What does this mean for the blog? In addition to what I’ve already been writing, you’ll read more stories about the pregnancy months, both good and bad (I wasn’t exactly jumping for joy at the news of twins, if that gives you a hint—more on my first reaction soon to come). You’ll also hear more about the early newborn and infant days, as well as the joys and challenges of parenting more than one child. And of course, everything there is to learn about twins.
I’ve also decided to slow down my blogging schedule to two to three times a week, based on your recommendations. This comes very timely, since I’ve been battling morning sickness and fatigue like I’ve never experienced before with my singleton pregnancy (it’s exhausting creating two placentas!). You can get email updates whenever a new post gets published so that you don’t miss new posts.
Other than that, expect the same types of posts you’ve been receiving, with just a few more interesting twists and turns.
And before I sign off, I want to say: thank you for reading Sleeping Should Be Easy. From new readers to old, I truly appreciate your readership.
