I wanted to begin this journal early on through this pregnancy, b/c although I have been pregnant two other times, they have not resulted in a baby. I feel like each pregnancy has been so special to me and I want something to remeber each one by, so now I start my journal!
After my second m/c my OB decided to go through all kinds of testing, and luckily everything came back negative! He suggested that my progesterone might be a lil low but nothing to really worry about at the time.
Through my last pregnancy I had an u/s done which showed a blood clot, so through this one the doctor has me taking one baby asprin a day!
So, we began trying to concieve on my second cyle after the m/c!
I took my first test on 12/14/07 and the second line was there, but barely so I was nervous and didn't say a word to anyone!
Then I took another test on 12/17/07 and WOW that line was there for sure!
I tried to tell DH that night, but everytime I went too it just seemed wrong... so I waited until the next night and I put the test on our dog's collar and sent her into the dining room where DH was!
She dropped it on the floor and tried to eat it, until he found it! He was sooo happy... although I could see in his eyes the fear set in!
We waited a few days before we told my parents, and I told my best friend! My DH has not told his best friend, and sometimes I can tell he just wants it so bad he doesn't want to get excited for that possibility again!
Now the waiting period has truly set in! We had a wonderful x mas and we are currently in the process of buying a house so things are moving and moving fast!
My only symptoms so far are tender breasts.... I would love to have more so that I know that lil bean is still in there!
I also tend to have a ton of gas pains, but I have always had issues with constipation even without being pregnant!!!
I am counting down the days to our first appointment! I am so nervous yet so excited! I just know that this time is it for us! Everything in our life has been falling into place and although our luck still stinks (we ran out of oil last night, darn oil)... but we always get back up on our feet! I just feel that this is it with this pregnancy!
The doctor I think has made a big help with that considering I really like him and he promised us one healthy happy baby... and I won't be greedy... I just want the child so BAD!
