I'm sorry I've neglected my journal... I thought I had updated it but I guess not. Well my visit to the doctor was not good news like we had hoped. We did suffer a miscarriage. The doctor did an internal ultrasound and found the sac but it was long and stretched out instead of round like it should be. There obviously was no heartbeat and I was in the process of having a miscarriage. I believe I passed the sac a few days ago and I've also been having blood taken for the past few days to check my levels. And they have been going down ever since my first visit... so sad to say that we lost our little bean.
I'll update this journal again once we decide to start TTC again. We're still not sure yet.
Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!

We tested yesterday and it said positive... So we are pregnant again! We didn't make it through the 2nd cycle after our miscarriage so I hope everything will still be okay. It's hard for us to get excited again until that blessed 12 weeks come and we know we're in the clear of another miscarriage (for the highest risk) I'm estimating we'll be due on March 6th, so that puts me at about 4 wks 3days pregnant! We're keeping this good news hush hush until the 12 week appointment!
Please pray for this bean to stick!!!
Well we did have another bleeding scare about 3 weeks ago... We headed to the Dr. just sure I was having another miscarriage. But the Dr. put me on thyroid medicine and progesterone and it's been helping. We are now almost 9 weeks along and hopeful that things will still be okay. We heard the heartbeat about a week ago and it was just breath taking.
We actually had a chance at having twins (naturally) because I have two sacs, but my Dr. doesn't seem to think there was ever a baby in the second sac, but still ... it could have been possible. That sac is still there and causing a bit of nervousness in my Dr. We are hoping that my uterus will absorb this sac and not try to pass it because it may be a threat to my current baby. We'll see in time...
Here are my crib options...
This one is from walmart and its about $100
And this one is from Target for about $125, and both of these are convertible cribs...
