Am I really, done having kids?
I was 10 weeks pregnant when our doctor asked whether we wanted to know the gender. We had said no in the ultrasound room, but faced with the question again, I looked at Gavin, and he just said it was up to me. Remembering a Buddhist saying that “when you don’t know what to do, do nothing,” I decided to say, “I don’t know if I want to know.” It wasn’t like I couldn’t find out at any other time in the next six and a half months, so what was the rush?
I’m very blessed to have a flexible job that understands that emergencies happen and sometimes you just have to pick up your things and go get your kids from the babysitters and work from home.
Throughout my ten years of competitive swimming I have learned a very important lesson, which is never let the people around you make you underestimate yourself.
