Hi. My name is Erin and I just found out last week that I am pregnant with my first baby! My boyfriend and I are so excited! We have been trying since October, or at least that is when I stopped taking my BC. Based on my last period, I am about 5 weeks, give or take. My EDD is 9/22/07. WOO HOO! My little sister's b-day is 9/29, I would love for the baby to come close to that date, what a great b-day present, huh?
I have somewhat mixed emotions today, very very excited but also nervous about what is to come over the next 9 months. My boyfriend has gone through this twice before with his ex-wife, so he has been great as he understands my moodiness and is such a great support! While this is our first, our family consisits of him and I, and our (I think of his children as I would mine) two little ones, Aliya (age 6) and Abe (age 3). Below are some pictures of us!
As far as how I am feeling physically, I have some slight cramping which I have read is normal for early pregnancy. Yesterday I had a little spotting, it was very light, a pinkish/brown color. I have also read this is normal just as long as it is not super heavy. I am tired and not really hungry, which I think is strange as most are hungry, no??? Smells are starting to get to me. Other than that, feeling pretty good!
Gosh, searching this site, I came across my post from back in January and it brougt many tears and uncovered emotions that I had not felt in a little while... We lost our little one due to a MC at just about 6 weeks on Jan. 21st.
But, here is the good news!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am now pregnant again! We are elated, but I am very nervous at the same time. I am almost at 7 weeks, so I am praying that this little one will carry full term. : )
I feel exteremly good, I have experienced very minimal cramping and my boobs are hurting like crazy! I have not had any MS symptoms, knock on wood! I am having really wierd dreams and am exhausted all of the time.
I am nervous also about telling my parents. I am off to visit them tomorrow and I have no clue how I am going to tell them. Wish me luck!
Well, that's all for now. Can't wait to watch my progess and see/feel my little bundle of joy grow inside of me. So strange.!!!!!!!!!!
