    Default 7 dpo

    I'm pretty sure I'm pregnant... it's just a feeling. Last night at my nursing meeting, they talked about how they understand that life happens and people's situations change. How they work really hard to make the program work for everyone, and they understand that sometimes you just need to take a break to deal with life. They used pregnancy as a specific example. It made me feel a little better about things.

    I took an HPT this morning on an IC and got a shadow of a line. It shows up in a picture after I've tweaked it. The line is really skinny though, so I can't put too much into that.

    I started applying for homecare jobs, in anticipation of having another baby... it would allow me to be more flexible, and not work weekends. Maybe they would even let me bring the baby with. Who knows. I should probably just wait to see if I am pregnant for sure, before making plans for a new baby.

    Possible symptoms include: crampy/achy lower abdomen, sleepy, cranky, STARVING, and then last night I coughed and got really bad "tweaky" pain in my uterus. That only happens when I'm pregnant. Anyways... should know in a few more days for sure.

    Default 9 dpo

    So my symptoms from yesterday are:
    Had to pee 5 times at work (normally I only go once, sometimes not at all).
    Hip pain that shoots all the way down my leg
    Hot flashes, although I was at work and people's rooms are different temps, but they were all really brief.
    Boobs hurt really bad
    TONS of light cramping and pressure for the last couple days... it feels like I'm about to O.
    Creamy CM

    I got a negative HPT today, but it's really early for me to get a positive and it was on an IC. I'm going to buy a pack of FRER's today and start using them tomorrow. I'm like, 99% sure I'm pregnant... whether it's viable, who knows. But I never feel like this before my period... EVER. So, tomorrow begins the fun and games. I must say, I might feel a little disappointed if the test is negative, but relieved that I can continue on with my life as I planned.

    Default I'm pregnant.

    Well, I'm pregnant again. It wasn't planned. I took a test at 10 dpo, and it was definitely positive. I went in for blood work at what I think was 12 dpo, and my numbers were kinda low, but not out of normal range. Like, if I had waited a couple more hours to get to the Dr, they probably would have gone up to where they have been for my normal 12 dpo. Anyways... HCG was 46 and Progesterone was 16. I was hoping for an HCG in the 50's, but whatever. I have a bad feeling about this pregnancy... like I have been expecting to miscarry. It's maybe because that's what I'm used to feeling, but my tests have been really slow to darken. First test was Saturday and I got a nice, but pretty light line. Slightly darker line on Sunday afternoon, and all yesterday my lines were pretty much the same as Sunday. Today, it's a little darker. Just about as dark as the control. I know I'm reading too much into the stupid tests, but it's all I have right now. I just have a terrible feeling that I'm going to go in for blood work tomorrow and my HCG is only going to be in the 60's or the 80's... I want them to be over 100. It's possible that I was only 11 dpo when I went for the test, in which case I'd be really happy with those numbers.
    I keep trying to tell myself that my numbers are only a few points off my last couple pregnancies, and not to get worked up about it... but in my experience, when I have to continually convince myself that things are working out, they tend to fail. I'll know more tomorrow. Until then, I have two tests here... I plan to take one the next time I have to pee, and then I'll probably take one in the morning so I know what to expect. I really hope the line is a TON darker and I can at least stop worrying for the day. At least they haven't been lighter.

    If it makes you feel better... I was used to m/c too. When I got pregnant with Hannah, my numbers definitely weren't doubling, but they were going up, and the docs gave me my usual gloom and doom message... but I delivered her 8 months later, small but healthy. I'll be praying!

    Default 2nd BETA

    My second BETA came back really good! It went from 46 to 146... so it tripled It made me relaxed and happy for about a day and a half. Now I'm getting nervous again. It's really only because DH told a couple people, and now I feel nervous. They're close friends that would totally be there for us if something happened, but I still wish he would have waited at least until our u/s. That's also making me nervous. Yesterday I set up my official OB appointment where we will get our u/s and all that. This Dr. didn't offer me any extra early u/s, but I'm alright with that. I had 3 with Wes and it made me really anxious. This way, I have the one date to deal with and then we'll go from there. I also have a doppler, so I'll be trying that one out in a few weeks, just to see. Anyways... that's all I have for now. First u/s is at the 8 week mark. I hope it all works out!

    Default Still pregnant!

    I'm still pregnant The ultrasound last week went really well. Everything appeared as normal as it can at 8 weeks 1 day. I was able to hear the baby's heartbeat on the doppler last night and also today, so that was comforting for me. I have to say, I've really been struggling with my emotions about this pregnancy vs. school. I don't want to get into it because I feel horrible about not being totally excited yet, but I'm still young, and school will be there when I'm ready again. This way we can have our three babies and be done, and then I will go back to school
    I can't help but think this baby is a girl. I don't know if it's because I already have two boys and just figure this one is a girl or what.... but I seriously have MAJOR girl vibes. To the point where I started buying baby girl summer clothes (mostly because they're super cheap right now and we only have boy clothes). I am hoping baby is a girl, but love my little guys and would be totally happy with a boy. I figure, at least I got out my little baby girl shopping before I knew what it was, and if it's a boy, I'll still have experienced that a little bit. Anyways... that's what's up. I have my NT screen soon so I'll update with that... hopefully everything is super healthy and will be great!
