8 Reasons I Believe My Next Pregnancy Will Be Extra Memorable

This won’t come as a surprise to you, but I am SO ready to get pregnant. It’s been a long time coming and while I am still waiting, I have good feelings that it will happen soon. Positive thinking is important.

I am firmly planted in the two week wait and while I sit here, it’s not unlike me to daydream about living life as a pregnant person again. It’s been over 4 years since I was pregnant and while that may not seem like too long, it feels like a lifetime to me. From the baby fever and waiting for my husband to get on board, then struggling with 14+ months of infertility, there has been a lot of opportunity for that positive thinking and imagining what the next pregnancy will be like.

I wonder if I will have a multiple pregnancy since I am older and on medication to boost ovulation. I wonder if I will ache more since I’m older and I’m curious if things will be easier this time around since I have older children who would be able to help out a lot more.

Any way I look at it, I believe that this next pregnancy — whenever it happens — will be totally memorable, maybe the best one yet.
