I have baby fever. It's official. I've been looking up ways to chart fertility while still breastfeeding. (Cuz you know, I haven't had a period since October of 2006. Gotta love it!) I would like our little ones to be fairly close in age.
So check this.
From the beginning of May until the beginning of October Anthony will be in school in San Diego. His current ship schedule is this: His crew will be deployed to their ship (in the middle east) for 6 months, then they're home for 12. They're gone now, and will be home in mar/apr, so they'll be leaving again in mar/apr next year. In between those big deployments they won't be gone more than 3-4 weeks at a time, puttering around the gulf.
So my question is this, where to fit a baby in there? The things I feel Anthony should really be there for, as a father and for my sake, to help me out, are the last couple months of pregnancy (when I'm huge and have a toddler), the birth, and first few months with the new baby. If we tried and got pregnant right before we left here, he'd be here the last few months of the pregnancy, the birth, and first few months (most likely). I'd be due around December. I'm thinking that'd be a fairly good time (if we get pregant, don't even know if I'm fertile again and I don't want to give up BFing Ray until he's 18 months if possible). The other good time, would be right before he deploys next spring.
In other news: Our computers shipped friday! USPS willing we'll be getting them this week. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
