First Trimester

First 2 Months

First month: I found out I was pregnant December 27th (5 weeks), LMP 11/22/2009. My husband and I had been trying for about 3 years. Ever since I got my IPhone I started tracking my period with one of their apps. I have a very irregular period. Sometimes it will be 28 or even 31 days for my next period with spotting in between.

I noticed that I had not marked any type of spotting for almost 6 weeks. I kind of ignored it for a few days till I was noticing that I was waking up in the middle of the night 3-4 times to pee. So I decided to take a test and sure enough it came out POSITIVE! Smile

My First Pregnancy!

I am very excited to blog about my first pregnancy! My husband and I have been patiently waiting for the right time to start trying to get pregnant. Finally the time seemed right and only after one month of trying were were successful! We are over joyed, shocked it actually worked and dying to tell everyone! When is the right time to make an announcement to family and friends? I've been doing alot of reading and it seems its best to wait till after the first trimester. However, we are bursting at the seams to tell family!!!

Unplanned and Unprepared

Well, according to my LMP (last menstrual period), I am about 8 weeks pregnant! From the title, I'm sure you have already come to the conclusion that this was very much an unplanned pregnancy. After much intense, emotional self-reflection, and a few arguments with my parents, I have come to the conclusion that terminating my pregnancy is not an option. I've always wanted to have children, it's just that now isn't the right time. But, I'm determined to make the best of the situation. Speaking of my situation, I feel I should fill you in on a few facts:

Should the Yolk Sac Grow?

At my first (transvaginal) ultrasound, the technician measured the black dot and said I was approximately 3 weeks and 6 days. Prior to my ultrasound, my doctor had looked at my BBT chart and estimated that I was about 5 weeks along, so there was a difference of about a week.

I didn't worry too much, but I had experienced a little bleeding so the doctor had me come in for blood tests just to make sure my hormone level was rising properly, which it is.

This is my husband and my first baby and we are really (REALLY) excited. Although it was a complete surprise to find out I was pregnant, we couldn't be more thrilled. Every one has been telling us how we're both pregnant and its a team effort and such, but my husband works 6 days a week between 10-12 hours a day so he hasn't gotten to go to any of my appointments with me. I found out I was pregnant alone, I went to my first appointment alone and when I heard the heartbeat for the first time I was alone also. SO I decided that I was going to find a way to include Joe in "our" pregnancy.

My neck and my lower back/bum hurts Excrutiatingly

I am trying to figure out what to do. I don't know if I am sending this to the correct place so if you know who would be best to help me out please direct me there. My neck and my lower back/bum REALLY hurts! I believe that it is worse than what I should be going through; yes I am pregnant and back pain is a part of the whole thing but it shouldn't be this bad.
