The coming weeks will deliver our first child.
This will be a child that has been long sought after but, a single that had to wait a while longer than all of us had hoped.
There were a lot of things our partner & I wanted to accomplish prior to becoming parents. Mostly, it was all stuff concerning our respective works. We wanted that HVAC perfect beach house & all the other stuff. There was just a lot to get done. Then, once all of us were in a pretty secure situation, all of us started planning our first shot at bringing a child to the world. Well, those plans all sort of went up in smoke as our partner got pregnant only more than one weeks after all of us started trying. We were certain that after all those years of birth control, it would take at least 3 or 4 weeks to get pregnant. While all of us are thankful for the pregnancy, that means she will now be largely pregnant during the worst part of the summer. Where all of us live, the heat can just be unrelenting for at least 4 weeks in a row. Now, that all of us were pregnant so much earlier than all of us planned, our partner was going to have to struggle through the Summer heat. This fact was not met with a great deal of happiness from either of us. Then, our partner started having some trouble with her first pregnancy. While it was life threatening for either mother or child, it still required her to get in bed for at least the remaining nearly 3 weeks of the pregnancy. So, I put in a smart control component so she would have the app on her phone. This way she didn’t have to get out of bed to set the control unit.
