Your eyes needed... updated :(

DO YOU SEE A LINE!???? I'm freaking out! :eek: (no fb comments plz, if I I am prego I'm going to wait a while!)

Well, it ended up being a blighted ovum. I started bleeding last Monday night and u/s showed an empty sac. It's been a tough week for me, dealing with this and on top of everything my grandfather died on Thursday. I was soo damn mad at my body when I first found out, kind of felt like it failed me. I'm trying to think about it differently now, like my body did the right thing not allowing a pregnancy to progress when the baby wouldn't have been healthy. I'll be OK, I have the best husband in the world and a super cute little man to concentrate on for now. Thanks for listening, I love you all!

Yeah...I decided to make the pic private on my flikr because I realized my friends and family have access to my photostream and I don't want anyone happening upon that pic accidentally b/c I'm totally NOT ready for that!

I just took 3 el cheapo tests this morning that showed a positive, and I bought a first response that showed the same thing tonight...glaringly positive. So I guess it looks like I'm prego! I am freaking out for realllllll! We were in the "not trying to prevent" stage, but I really didn't expect to be pregnant. I know it only takes one time, but damn, we only had sex once last month. I think my husband is pretty proud of himself :rolleyes:... Trying not to get too excited until I go to the Dr. The beginning uncertainty is so hard to deal with for me!

There, I fixed it! I put it up on photobucket instead of flikr....everyone I know has access to my flikr photostream! I didn't think about that when I intially uploaded the photo so I put it on private Smile

Thanks, Erika!
It's hard to say with me...before I had E my cycles were all over the map, but they've seemed to be pretty regular since I quit nursing. The first day of my last period says I should be due at the end of December/beginning of January!

Thanks, Steph! I'm not going to lie - I'm scared out of my mind. We have a good routine going with E, daycare, and work...and I know it's going to be a LOT different with 2. Daycare is soooo expensive, I'm really going to have to reevaluate paying for 2 vs. staying home or rearranging our schedules so we don't need daycare (don't even know if that's possible). But that will be a hard decision because I honestly love the interaction E has with the other kids in his daycare class. But...don't want to put the cart before the horse, all that is still a ways away! It really IS a good thing that the human gestation period is 40 weeks - I know I'm going to need that time! Smile

Don't stress too much about the routine, things will fall into place, the first 2 months will be a bit crazy ( we are finally starting to get back to normal), it will be wonderful for your kids to be only 3 years apart. I'm so happy we had the oops and Evelyn was born only 2 years after Emily, it was crazy and we so can't afford the second one, don't even want to think about preschools, they are so expensive here, but I know we will manage somehow.

I've got three years between Harry and Miller and it's fantastic. Harry was really willing to help out, and also at an age where you can explain things and he'll understand a bit more. He was also out of the baby stage, and very much wanting to be a big boy, so we played on that a lot.
You'll be fine. It'll be hard, but you'll adjust. (((hugs)))

Thanks, Steph. I was thinking the age difference would be similar to that of you and your boys. I'm glad to hear the encouraging words! E is getting more and more independent as the months go by, so I'm hoping by next December he'll listen a little better!

Erin - I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, sending you lots of hugs. Unfortunatley I'm still processing my last loss which was a surprise pregnancy. We found out it was a boy and that he had Trisomy 22. I guess my body did what it was designed to do in those cases, but it still is hard some days and it's been almost 2 months now. I do know J gets a lot more hugs from me on those days though as I'm forever thankful for my little blessing.

Thank you everyone, I really appreciate your words

Thanks Lena, I am so sorry to hear of your loss as well. I agree with your line of thinking, our bodies did what they should have...but it's still hard to deal with. I, too, am grateful to have my little man in my life. Since this has happened he does get a few extra squeezes every day. I don't know what I'd do without him!
