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.
I've never posted a picture on here so Im sorry it's so big. I will try to figure all this out really soon.
Hi Katie! Congratulations!! We share a due date!
What an awesome start to your baby's story! Looking forward to getting to know you!
