My name is Katie, and I'm from Texas, just north of Houston. I've been lurking on here for a few weeks but I want to finally join you ladies if that's alright.
I actually got my (very faint) BFP on 3/24 after I waking up from a super real dream that I was pregnant. When I saw what looked like a line I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me (it was 5:30am)! I waited until the afternoon, then went and bought a digital and sure enough, it was positive! I confirmed it with my OB the following week.
I had a m/c last September--a blighted ovum. So needless to say, ive been freaking out a little! Well, since my OB knew I was worried, she did an u/s on 4/7 and I measured 5w1d, and only saw an empty sac. My doctor didn't seem concerned and had me come back yesterday, exactly 2 weeks later for another u/s. I was beyond nervous, I thought my heart was going to beat out of my chest!
But guess what! This time I measured 7w2d and we saw AND heard a strong heartbeat of 164!!!! My due date is December 7th It was the neatest thing I've ever seen and I could have watched that little heart beating all day! My doctor was really happy to see me relax a little and is letting me come back in two weeks for another u/s
A little about me...I'm married to my dh John and we have been married for almost 2 years. I'm a kindergarten teacher and I absolutely love my job. John and I went to Jamaica for spring break back in March and it looks like this baby is our souvenir!
Anyway, I know I'm still going to be worried to some extent until I'm out of the first trimester but I'm really happy to be here and look forward to knowing everyone.
