After several days of worrying and fear, I took a test on Sunday, December 13, 2009. The test turned positive almost immediately. I knew it would, which was why I waited all weekend before taking the test. I had no other symptoms at all at this time, until the middle of the night on Saturday the 12th. I thought my breasts felt a little full and that's when I pretty much knew.
Saving money always gives me an adrenaline rush. So imagine the rush I felt when I discovered that dollar stores now sell pregnancy tests and are giving name-brand competitors a run for their money. 27 dollar-store pregnancy tests were tested and compared the results with the early-response name brands. The dollar store brand was 100% accurate.
So I've been reading on a few websites on and off today at work. Mostly about fertility and getting pregnant after you go off the pill. I put 9 books on hold at the library! One for my hubby and one that I'm expecially excited for, "What to Expect Before You're Expecting". I've also been reading all about pregnancy! The blogs, FAQ's, and websites are full of all kinds of information. Some of it breaks my heart to read about these wonderful women who want nothing more than to have a family. It makes me thing of how my mom must have felt. She and my father tried for 10 years to have children.
My husband and I have been married for almost a year and a half. We've decided that it's time to bring a baby into our family! We have a wonderful 4 1/2 year old yellow lab, but we've been feeling like something's missing. (How cliche does that sound?) I went to the OB for my yearly check-up a few weeks ago and got the 'ok' to go off the pill. I have two weeks left of my pack and I'm starting to get NERVOUS! A zillion thoughts have been running through my head, "Are we too young? Are we being stupid? What if something goes wrong? What if we can't get pregnant? Is our apartment too small?
My last period was on the 24th of August and here I am surely pregnant with a HCG level of 9432. How is that possible??? I should be about 2 and 1/2 months pregnant, yet my HCG level shows 6 to 7 weeks. So I'm abit confused with the results and my last period. And for sure my belly doesn't look 6 to 7 weeks pregnant. So I truely need some advice from the wise.

I've never written a blog before. I am almost 6 weeks pregnant with my second child. I decided to write this because I wish I had an account of my first pregancy. My son is 13 months old so it wasn't that long ago that I was pregnant with him, but it all feels so different, and it is difficult to remember. I wish I knew what I was thinking then.
Wow. Talk about a big surprise. My hubby and I have 3yr old twins and an 8month old baby. All our children were conceived with fertility treatments. We were told we couldn't get pregnant on our own. Now I'm 6 weeks pregnant and freaking out!! Four children under 4 years of age is going to be alot to handle. Anyone else out there who has gone through the same thing??? I'm looking for all the advice I can get!
