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!)
