It's been a while!

I haven't been on these boards in a couple of years, I think. It was fun reading back and seeing new babies and pregnancies!

I wasn't always sure if out our was a big family before, so I posted sporadically anyhow. Smile but I got a bfp about a week and a half ago! Baby #5 is on the way! This was not completely planned, my first unplanned pregnancy. Ha ha! But after the twins, I really needed a physical and mental break for a while. Smile and I got the bfp on their 4th bday! Lol.

I'm nervous, I've had two previous miscarriages. I also was diagnosed this summer with pelvic congestion syndrome, which is basically varicose veins in the female organs. It hasn't been terrible for me, yet, just extremely heavy periods and mild cramping, but I do Wonder how it will effect a pregnancy. I have my first appt at the end of the month, so we'll see what the doc has to say. We are excited though,it not telling anyone's is after at least two apps, so mums the word if you are my Facebook friend. Smile

OH RACHEL!!! Exciting news! I love hearing about your twins antics and personalities on your status updates Smile I'll keep it hush hush Smile I'm always super quiet about pregnancies for a while too because of losses. In fact, we didn't mention anything on Facebook until I was over 20 weeks with this baby--and I still haven't said too much about it.

Very exciting news! Hope it turns out your pelvic issues have no effect on the pregnancy.

Thanks ladies. I know most of my Facebook friends know better than to say something, but always feel like I have to spell it out, just in case. Smile am thinking it wouldbe really fun to hide it until April fools, and tell everyone then, but I'll be like 18 weeks then, I think, so I think I may be showing too much to not tell. Lol

This baby is my #5 and we didn't tell anyone until 16 weeks and most didn't know until 18-20. It was getting to be fall though, and I was wearing more clothing layers Smile

Holly, do you tend to not show much? I start pooping out early, but I was able to keep the twins a secret until 14 weeks, so we'll see. I am starting this pregnancy with a little more fluff than any other. Time, hoping baby can hide out in there longer. Lol
