Differentiation/insemination

We’ve decided to spin the TTC events of recent weeks and months thusly: Child #2 wants firmly to establish her or himself as wholly separate and different from Natalie even prior to conception. If today’s attempt works it will have been nearly diametrically opposed to the insemination that brought us Natalie.

Last month we were hoping that the similarity of the third try would be our lucky charm. This month we’re pinning it on the differences. Whatever it is, please let it work.

*A weird consequence of assisted reproduction is that one can be present at the conception of one’s (hoped-for-but-not-assumed) sibling without quite the same ick factor!

  1. Today a co-teacher was saying that a second child’s disposition is a direct and opposite reaction to the first child’s. That seemed to be true, when I thought about it, for most families I know. Here’s hoping that it’s true for yours too, even this early in the process.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. My brother and I couldn’t be more different, so I’m all about the “direct & opposite reaction” theory! Wishing and hoping for you that it proves true!

  3. yeah, my sister and i couldn’t be more different so let’s hope this is a good sign of things to come. (and then number 3 & i are scarily alike and my darling H is also like her uncle, aka #3)
