Eating my words

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

In my last blog post I was convinced I was down for the count . . . as it turns out, I am pregnant! Temp spiked again the following day and on Sunday afternoon I broke down and took a test. Plus sign appeared almost instantly. Today is my second blood draw to make sure hCG is doubling as it should (and yes, I'm nervous). Doc is having me take extra progesterone, as I was toward the low end of the "okay" spectrum. Started orals AND injections yesterday. Thankfully, the injections are only twice a week and will be reevaluated in a couple of weeks.

While I am more nervous this time around, I am also really hopeful. If this bloodwork comes back okay, I hope to be able to shift the scales to only a little bit of nerves and mostly hope. I keep praying "Please God, let everything be alright."

    Congratulations. We raised 5 sons and it was always hectic around the house.

    Thanks all. We sorta thought the timing was perfect as we found out right before our birthdays (mine is tomorrow, hubby's is next week) and baby is due right before our anniversary (June 5). So this little one is celebratory all around.
