About 2 weeks ago I took a pregnacy test due to some familar symptoms I was having. Didn't really expect it to be positive as I was on birth control and breastfeeding but I took 2 and they were both big fat POSITIVE. Now my husband and I were completely caught off guard and kind of hoping to have another one maybe when my almost 9 month old turns about 3. But warmed up to the idea and have kind of gotten excited about it. Anyway, the news spilled out 4th of July to my family and extended family. This is completely out of character for me since I am the type that likes to wait, find a heartbeat, let the news sink in etc, etc. The following day we had the first ultra sound appointment to give us an idea of how far along we might be. Well, they found some blood and since I'm really not far along at all (maybe 5 weeks) my OB says it is much too early to tell-I may miscarry, I may not... Anyway, we have really gotten attached to the idea of another one and it is frusterating and a bit scary to play the waiting game for either blood or a heart beat. Just thought I would post this in hopes all you mommies could send prayer and good thoughts our way no matter what happens. The next appointment is July 20. Thanks!
