After Enza was born Sept 25, 2008 I had the Mirena IUD inserted to prevent pregnancy. It was cheap and I didn't have to worry about daily birth control. I didn't have any complications with the Mirena, and even though over the year that I had it I read and learned lots of things about IUD's that I didn't like or agree with, I already had it and it was working. Birth control is a very sticky subject for me. I dislike hormonal birth control, I was on it for 10 years before getting pregnant. Of course it was only after coming off of it that I learned the dark secrets of birth control and what it's doing to our bodies own hormone function. It's pretty yucky stuff, and I always wondered what I was really like. How were these synthetic hormones altering my personality, temperament, sex drive, even my complexion?
I went home (remember to my parent's home) and decided I was going to wait to say anything, even to Jason because I didn't think he could keep it a secret from my parents. But while making dinner I HAD to tell him, I couldn't keep it a secret standing right next to him! But I made him promise not to say anything.
After that weekend I made Enza a shirt to deliver the news.....
Enza was going to be a big sister and we were going to have another baby! What a blessing! My estimated due date was January 31st 2011!
