Well.... after 2 months of trying with the fertility monitor - we are pregnant again!! To get pregnant, we bd for 5 nights in a row, and the 2 nights before ovulation I stayed in bed after to give them time to swim! :) It must have worked!!!! :) :) :)
So, at 9DPO in the evening, I got my 1st faint positive test, followed with more faint positives on 10DPO and 11DPO. On 11DPO I went in for a blood test - and the quant came back at 24. On 13DPO, the pg line was starting to darken, and my quant came back at 48 - perfectly double. Dr. Goerish called and said everything looks good, I'm just early yet. She scheduled an U/S for 2 wks later when we should be able to hear the heart beat!
No spotting - I'm hoping there won't be! Symptoms include larger bbs with veins, bloating, a little more dizzy, and increased CM. I'm at 143 for weight, and really hoping to stave off weight gain for as long as possible!! I was exercising prior to this and plan to continue using the heart monitor. Mark and I are both excited - and a bit nervous at the prospect of having 2 little ones to take care of! We are both thinking it will be a boy this time.... but of course we just want a healthy baby!!
July 17th; 14 wks + 3 days
Wow - I haven't written in a long time! I've had 2 ultrasounds, both went wonderful. My mom came with me to the first, when I first heard that sweet sound of the heartbeat! I'm glad she was there to experience that happy moment with me. The second was at my first Dr. appointment, and by then the baby's arms and legs were moving around - it was amazing. I've been a lot more sick with this pg than with Grace, however, I've only vomited once about 1 week ago. Dr. Goerish did give me a prescription for anti-nausea at my last appointment, which I've been taking sporadically. My allergies have been much worse this summer, and I've had to take Benadryl frequently during attacks - not sure why. I was supposed to have my 2nd app today, but Dr. Goerish was in surgery and it was rescheduled for Thursday. I'm going to try to demand that my u/s appointment be made at that time, so I can arrange to have off from work. When I look back and remember I was more sick with Ben than Grace, it leads me to think this might be a little boy! We've decided to wait to find out until the birth day! I really hope and pray that this little is healthy!
P.S. - I'm out of my maternity clothes, and weigh 153 lbs (about 5 lbs of weight gain so far). We purchased a new scale - so all comparisons are off. However, at my 1st app I weighed 5 lbs less than at the same time with Grace. We'll see how things progress! :)
