Welp, If you’ve read my sidebar info then you can see that.. I’m pregnant with baby #2! I always said after Katie that I didn’t want another, but continued to think every now and then about giving Katie a sibling. After my weight loss and then health problems- we did try in 2009 and I think 2010 to get pregnant a little but there was too much imbalance back then. We usually stayed protected but the last year or two we’d have random unprotected sessions. Wellll, one of those was in early June of this year. Was looking for my period around June 20th. Nothing. My period had actually been *earlier* each month by a couple days so I thought well, maybe it’s resetting. Waited. Nothing. June 30th gets here and I’m thinking uh, well, I’m late. How long do I wait to test? I was a little in denial that I might be pregnant haha because of my past struggle with PCOS to get pregnant with Katie. I wasn’t even sure it would happen again. July 3rd, Sunday, we had went to church then stopped by Whole Foods and then Wal-Mart. I picked up a cheapie pregnancy test and a Clearblue 2 pack digitial that told me about how many weeks past ovulation I was. We made it home and I’ve never had a test you had to use a little dropper lol. 3 drops of pee later and I watched the test… at first it looked like I had messed it up but then it started to settle. DARK- POSITIVE- LINE. It was a bit shocking, lol. Yup, no wonder my boobs felt a bit tender. I went to show Brad and was shaking and had to sit down LOL. I took one of the digital tests later that evening… Pregnant and about 2-3 weeks past ovulation. Next day the digital said 3+ weeks past ovulation.
The nausea has been pretty dreadful. It’s like an empty stomach nausea, where I don’t feel like I’m gonna be sick but just annoying. However, I got sick for the first time yesterday. Everything else has been great. We got to see our tiny bean at our “pregnancy confirmation” appointment yesterday and I got my pap smear too. NP said I’m about right on track for my estimate of about 8w1d (now 2d) and so I should be due late February. I told the NP about my pregnancy with Katie and how she was early so she said they might want to start progesterone injections to help prevent that so we’ll see. I go back next week for my first official and long appointment! Brad is gonna try to take off again to take me.. I know he can’t take off too much tho.
Speaking of Brad- he finally went to see a behavioral specialist about his stress and they are gonna try him on low dose Lexapro and start therapy too. I just want him to be as happy as he can be! Especially since we’re gonna have a second baby to take care of. Katie is over the moon excited about being a big sister. Our whole world is gonna change next year!!! I’m really excited and felt so in love with our tiny bean when I saw that tiny tiny flicker of a heart beat (160bpm!) on the screen. I was surprised they did an U/S! So thrilled when we came in and saw my name already on the U/S machine.
Feeling so very blessed! Praying we can get some extra income somehow so that we can get everything we need and I know it will all work out <3
