So here I am still in shock but knowing pretty well that this is the real thing. I m/c my Little Love at 11w2d 6 months ago. I was due next Wednesday. Being preggo doesn't take away the pain of my loss and who know how I'll be then.
None the less I'm happy that we've been blessed with such a miracle. I'm praying and praying for this little guy to hang on tight.

If all goes well I'll be delivering this LO on or around July 9th according to a few different sites...others say July 10th. I'll have to wait and see what my doctor says. I'm going tomorrow for my first beta and then we'll see when he wants me to go in. I was 6 weeks preggo when I had my first u/s last time. Hopefully I wont have to wait to long to see this little guy.

From the moment I Oed I had a good feeling about this. I just had this feeling that this was my month. I had crazy symptoms that I tried to ignore but they wouldn't go away. That is why I tested Sunday with a $ Store test and there was a faint line after a few hours. I thought it was a fluke so I did the serum testing and there was a faint positive...which I didn't believe. Until I tested Monday morning and I totally saw something IRL. And obviously there's the proof that Erny knocked me up!! LOL

So today is the day. I'm leaving in about 2 1/2 hours for my beta test and other blood work. I don't know when I'll be getting the results but hopefully it's soon and hopefully its good numbers!

I'm a little paranoid but I'm trying to stay calm and not think about it too much. Dr's office never called with results and to schedule another beta count and/or appointment. So finally I called. The nurse/receptionist said that the lab hadn't called but she would call them to get my results and call back. She called and said that my levels were at 97 on Wed...13 DPO. I don't know but they seemed low to me. She also said that my Dr was home sick today so I have to wait until Monday to see if to go in for an appointment or go do another beta count first. So I have to WAIT! Ugh I hate waiting. She said that most likely since I'm early in the pregnancy I might be sent back for another beta in a week or 2 weeks :eek: Are you kidding me! In 2 weeks what's the point...by then I can get an u/s and see a heart beat. So either way she said she'll call me on Monday and let me know what the doctor says. Hopefully she says to go again no later than Wednesday. If not...I'll probably...cry!!! Sad

I finally got a call from my doctors office. Well they called at 9:30 this morning which is faster than my last doctors office! Anyway...the doctor wants me to go in and get another beta test on Wednesday. I'll be 20 DPO by then so we'll see doubling and increasing numbers. It sucks that I'll have to wait till Thursday or Friday to get the results back. I'm so anxious to see this LO's heart thumping away. Hopefully next week or the following he'll schedule me for an u/s!!!

Yesterday I went in for my second beta testing. I got a call this morning (that was quick) and my levels at 20 DPO were at 2708!! Yahoo I'm very excited. My doubling time is at 33 hours. So no more beta testing...my doctor wants to see me for an u/s. I'm going Friday the 21st at noon! I'll be a little over 7 weeks by then. I can't wait to see my little guy!! Yahoo

So DH and I decided that we will wait until after the first of the year to announce the pregnancy. Yeah ok...how about this...I'm already starting to show! I'm getting rounder. I'm sure it's just bloat...my pants don't fit right anymore and it hurts to suck in my gut! LOL
People are going to start to notice and I don't want our families to find out from other random people who guessed right.

So after the u/s next Friday...we might tell some of the family and let others find out after the 1st trimester. We'll see how all of that goes.

I've been really busy and haven't posted in a while. But here I am again and I have quite a bit to catch up on.
First of all...it was all bloat and my pants went back to fitting me. But at the end of the day I seemed bigger than the morning. This morning I found that I couldn't button my pants. This happened around the same time last time. We'll see how it all goes.
I had my first prenatal appt and u/s on Friday Nov 21st. We got to see our little one and got to hear the heartbeat! It was amazing!!! HB was recorded at 133bpm. Baby measured .99 cm (9.99mm). Doc wants to see the baby measure over 1cm (10mm) so I'm going in again on Dec 11th for another u/s. I'll be 10 weeks at that point so we'll be able to see arms and legs and movement. I'm excited!
At my first appt., the baby measured at 7 weeks. Off by one day based on my calculations. I was thinking 7w/1d. Oh well it's only one day. So I'm not changing my EDD until I see what happens at my next appt.

Did I mention I'm feeling boy? Besides "the feeling" I had 2 boy dreams. And here's the bummer...doc doesn't do the "big" u/s until 22-26 weeks. I have to go every 4 weeks after next weeks appt so that would land me at 22 weeks for the "big" one. I'm going to try IntelliGender though! LOL

Here is the sonogram at 7 weeks

Tomorrow I'm going in for my 10 week u/s. Doctor wants to make sure the baby is over 1cm. I'm excited to see our little one. We'll be able to see arms and legs and hopefully movement.
Oh and I'm sick too! Ugh. I feel better than this morning but I really felt horrible. My head hurts, body aches, can't stop sneezing or coughing and my throat is sore. I'm just waiting to go home and get some rest.

I ordered my IntelliGender tests Sunday. I'm curious to try them but I know not to trust it 100%. I've read they've been wrong on some people.

10 weeks 1 day

I'm sick!!! I started Wednesday. Yesterday I stayed home cause I felt horrible. Still feeling sick but hopefully with rest and lots of fluids I'll get better.

So Thursday was my 2nd prenatal appt. Dr did a full physical and then went on to the u/s. I ignored everything he said and even the baby as a whole. I went straight for his/her little chest. And once I saw the little bubbling of the heart...I felt so much relief. So finally they called Erny in. Again I couldn't help but tear up at the sight and sound of the heartbeat. His/her HB was going at 169bpm. It was at 133bpm @ 7 weeks so all is going great. Also @ 7 weeks he/she measured .9cm and this time he/she measured 3.35cm. The Dr said that everything is progressing as it should so he's confident that everything will go great!
I have another appt at 14 weeks on Jan 7th. But before that, I have an appt with a perinatologist for an NT scan. I go in on 12/30 for that one.
Oh and the doctor changed my date to July 10th. According to the size I would be due July 8th but he kept it on the 10th. Hopefully the baby will come on the 8th. That way it'll be 07/08/09...hehe
