mostly because we have the patience of gnats (or some other unpatientlike creatures).

At first, she didn't believe us. She kept saying, "No, you're not. Quit joking around. You're too old to have another baby." Once we explained that it was not a joke or a trick, she got this really upset look on her face and said she had to go to the bathroom. When she came out, she still looked really upset but wouldn't admit she was upset. I asked her if she was worried that we wouldn't love her as much as the new baby, and then she started crying and said, "Yes!" in the most sobby, pitiful voice. Once we reassured her that we could never love anybody more than her, she calmed down, and now she's really excited. I think she is going to be a fabulous big sister, and she's excited about a new baby. She's been really solicitous, too--asking me if I feel okay and helping around the house. I'm so thrilled she's excited. :)

So far, I really don't feel like I did before in my previous pregnancy. I'm not sick like at all. I'm really tired, and my boobs hurt, and my knee is killing me, and I have to pee every three seconds, but I don't feel anything like I did when I was pregnant before. I'm trying not to find that disconcerting and find it comforting instead with varying degrees of success.

So, here's the skinny.

My daughter Emma was born in 2002. I was 23.

I had a not-so pleasant experience as a pregnant person and new mom for a variety of reasons. )

So, why, given that experience, do I want to have another baby? )

I still have some reservations about having another child. )

Overall, though, I'm deeply excited hope to have good news in the next few weeks as Josh and I officially start trying at the beginning of next week.

ETA: I realized that I should also explain that Trashboat is our nickname for the baby and comes from an episode of Regular Show. I tried to name this journal Trashboat, but alas it was already taken.
