My BIG News


Monday, October 22, 2012

Drumroll please....

I'm pregnant!!



Okay, so many apologies about this picture:
1) It's blurry.
2) Please ignore gross wet paper towel in background.
3) There really is vertical line there, I promise you. The directions on the test said it didn't matter how faint the line was - if it was there at all, it was a positive test!

I found out just over a week ago and have been dying to share the news ever since. So far only my parents know, and a few Sparkers who noticed my suggestive status updates. Not even my in-laws know yet! Jess, my baby daddy (haha), didn't want me to share the news yet, especially since when I was pregnant back in April we told my parents, his parents, and I shared the news with SP, and then I miscarried hours later. I started off terrified that something similar would happen this time, but now I'm 44 days along and feeling more confident. Plus, I read something online that calmed me down: Miscarriages are common (enter some statistic here). There's nothing you can do about it, and if you have one, you just try again. I don't know why, but that concept calms me down.

Anyway...I'm 6 weeks and 2 days today, and according to the internet I'm due somewhere between June 15-19. I have a first trimester educational class at my doctor's office this Wed., an appointment with a nurse about a week later, and my first ultrasound in about a month. Also, since I have a blood clotting condition, I have an appointment with the hematologist to learn how to give myself anticoagulant injections - FUN. Ugh.

My symptoms have been very mild to this point, for the most part I'm feeling really good. The less fun stuff - major mood swings, feeling bloated and a little achy, being tired, and slight nausea, do come and go, but they haven't been bad (yet?).

So...if you're my friend on FB of course I know you won't say anything about it there... but I'm so relieved to be able to have an outlet to blurt out my happy news SOMEWHERE! (here!)

    Thank you for letting us know - even if not "officially" - as your Sparkfriend, that means a lot- I loved the post with the 3 smiley faces--- and just so you know- I did say a prayer for you guys that day :-)

Really, really happy for you Susan! (And the Baby Daddy of course)

Based on the status on Sharon's blog, your sense of humor has definitely NOT left you-- that comment about running naked in Miami cracked me up!

    YEAH!!! awesome news!!! I had a md tell me that miscarriages happen because somewhere along the lines of all the "creating" something goes wrong and so its the body's way of terminating the pregnancy because something didnt form/fuse, whatever! lol, right.


we only want happy healthy babies =) keep us posted!!! cant wait to follow you! xoxo
