Soooooo. Pregnant again. I was thinking about it, and this is the 4th time I've been pregnant in about 5 years. First was T, then the two I lost, and now this one WHICH IS STICKING BECAUSE I REFUSE TO CONSIDER ANY OTHER OPTION. HEAR THAT UNIVERSE? STICKING.
Anyway. If those other two pregnancies had come to fruition (or been mistakes) people would be asking me "You do know how this happens, right?" by now.
Kind of lonely on my birth board right now. I'm the only confirmed pregnant lady in April 2013 so far. I know how it happened...I have such a weird cycle. My cycles have been around 28 days, but I only have a 10 day LP, so most people who had a LMP around mine (June 22) are in March. On the other hand, I waited to test until the day after my period was due, but since I have such a short LP I'm only just now 4 weeks pregnant because of my late O date. Blergh.
What does all this mean? I'm lonely on my birth board!!!! LOL But that's okay, because those bfps are going to start rolling in any time now, and then I can have at least one other woman to compare symptoms with. I don't want to be a jerk by whining on the BB like "I wish you guys were pregnant already....Hurry up and get pregnant!" I'm sure they'd want to smack me. LOL
It is a long standing tradition in our family to sing "Happy Birthday" in a minor key to make it sound sad (we're weirdos that think Sad Birthdays are funny). I was totally singing the same tune in my head this morning "Happy Birthboard to meeeee.....happy birthboard to meeeeeeeeeee....." in a minor key. I'm such a jerk.
Anyway, feeling excited and hopeful about this one. I thought I would be more scared, but mostly I just feel happy and optimistic. Which feels good. I hope it lasts.

Gosh, I can't believe its been over a month since I posted about being the only pregnant lady on my birth board. People are starting to post on the June BB already!!! In some ways the time is flying, but in other ways it is crawling because I am always aware, to the day, how far along I am. It's like I'm painfully aware of each day before it goes by, lol. I just want to hit the 12 week mark, because I think (hope!) that once I am 12 weeks, I will be able to let go of some of this worry and just really enjoy being pregnant. That's the goal anyway. I think I might have been able to do it sooner if I didn't have a subchorionic hematoma throwing out blood and even *swoon* blood clots to keep me feeling nice and paranoid.
Oooh, but I saw the baby yesterday, and it. was. AMAZING. I couldn't believe how much he was moving (I'm calling the baby a he for now, because I can't stand to say "it" and "s/he his/her" is so cumbersome, and my dad predicted boy and he's never wrong. So it's he for now. ) Anyway, he was kicking his little legs, and waving his little arms around. It was completely precious, and reminded me so much of how babies act outside of the womb. Little love bug.
This has been a really happy time for our family right now. DH and I are closer and happier than ever, and T has gotten to this amazing age where he is just such a hoot to be with. I really feel good about bringing a new baby into our family, and adding to the love and joy that we have. I'm just really happy.
