Just Found Out!

I just found out yesterday afternoon that I was pregnant with number 2. We weren't exactly trying, but we weren't "not" trying either. I didn't have any of the symptoms that I had last time so I was definitely caught off guard when the doctor said I was pregnant. DH was definitely happy, which is nice to know! Now I am scared to death about the increased cost of child care, which will be the biggest expense, but I have time to figure that out. Now I am just trying to let it sink in!

What's going on....

Hi there, well i'm not actually trying to conceive but had to choose a catagory. However, I am a bit puzzled!! I have a 28 day cycle usually, regular as clock work, therefore my last period was dec 9th and I should have been due around Monday. However, I have had no cramps or signs of AF coming as I usually would. The puzzling thing is, I was away for xmas and returned to my partner on the 29th of december and well yeah we had some catching up to do! er hem... plenty of action... but I doubt I would have been fertile at this time as it would be day 21 or so of my cycle.

first blog

Well I've known for almost 2 weeks now. I've been sick since thanksgiving. I can;t seem to keep anything down. And when I do manage to find something that doesn't come back up, I get diareah. I've been soo tired. My boss is noticing it at work. He says that I've been "moppy" I don't feel like I'm getting any nurishment to not only myself but the baby too. I've been to the doctor once on the 8th and that was just to test. All they did was have me pee in a cup like I didn't do that twice already at home. I have my first real dr appointment on the 23rd. It seems like so far away.

There's a first time for everything!

Well, here goes nothing! I've always had "too many" thoughts for my own good when it comes to my health, fertility, and everything else that comes along with that. So this is my "starter blog", the Alpha, and probably the most vulnerable thing I'll do when it comes to writing this blog. My problem isn't with the blog, its just getting it "out there" and the first try is always the hardest, and its almost unrealistic to think I'm going to hit the save button down there below. So here goes nothing... or a lot of rambling, at least.

Tristine's Triumph -- Entry One

It sure is a good day for my husband to get called into work. As soon as he goes to work this morning, I must run to the drug store and pick up an el-cheapo brand home pregnancy test.

Tristine's Truimph -- Entry Two

I am pregnant. I am so scared. I am worried about my reaction to seeing the pregnancy test result. I cannot believe my body just started trembling.

Tristine's Triumph -- Entry Three

I could not keep the news to myself for long. I had to tell my husband. He deserves to know and I want him to go to my appointments with me.

Tristine's Triumph -- Entry Four

This is going to be more complicated then I thought. Already I am running into difficulties to just getting my records sent to the right office.

Tristine's Triumph -- Entry Five

Well, now that my OB/GYN has my records, I called my doctor's nurse and spoke to her about being pregnant again and asking about where we should go from here.
