Hello all! I've been lurking for a week but figured it was about time I said hello! I got a BFP 4/19/12 and my EDD is 12/20/12. I have a 12 yr old DS, a 7 yr old DD, and a 2 yr old DD--all three born in September! Before my 2 yr old was born, I had two losses, one early at 5 wks 5 days and one at 17 weeks. My 2 yr old was born 6 weeks early; my water had actually broken 9 weeks early and I was hospitalized for 3 weeks! EEK! Hopefully that won't happen again! After my 2 yr old was born, we figured that we were done having kids . . . that is, until that BFP last week anyway! We are both very excited to welcome our 4th child in December, but a little apprehensive at the same time because of the previous losses and preterm delivery. I have told my two closest friends about the pregnancy, but otherwise, we haven't told anyone--not any of our family or our kids. So it's a big secret for now!!!
Other than that, I would say life is pretty busy for me. On top of the craziness of having 3 busy kids, I go to school full time and I am a fitness instructor so I spend a good 3-4 hours a day at the gym followed by 8-12 hours of studying. Phew! It's a lot! But I love it. Luckily, I am out of school for the summer so I will have some time to enjoy my kids and my pregnancy. So far, I have not been sick at all, just really tired. That makes me THINK BLUE since I wasn't sick with my DS, but I was really sick with my DDs. Guess we'll wait and see at the ultrasound!
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all. I have made some good friends on these boards with my previous pregnancies and losses so I hope to make some new birth buddy moms here!!! Congrats to all of you!!
