It's time for me to join too! I'm Krista, married to Leif, and our son Kai just turned 3 in July. We decided to start trying (which for us means, no stressing, no obsessing) for number 2 in June, and apparently hit it on the second cycle. Yay! We weren't charting or anything, so I feel pretty lucky.
I got my BFP today, which is a shock. I mean, I knew I was preggo, since I spotted on the day I was due for AF, and it was like, wake with fresh blood, then an hour later - nothing. And still nothing, since Monday, when AF was due. Plus sore boobs, nausea, excessive hunger and thirst. All tip-offs, as you ladies know!
The BFP was a shock b/c I have kind of this weird thing where I don't test positive on home tests, b/c low hormone levels or something. I've been pregnant twice in my life and never passed a piss test, even when pregnant like 6 or 8 weeks. I even pretty much flunked a blood test with my son. Read my crazy story here
if you are interested.
Anyhow, I wasn't expecting confirmation (test wise) until I missed AF #2, so it's exciting to know this early! I'm due around April 23-26ish. My birthday is April 12, so that's pretty cool. I'll have just turned 29.
I still have to make an appointment with the Dr. in town who is the only option for VBAC without driving to Anchorage (I live in small town Alaska). We would prefer birth center and midwife type situations, but you can't argue with reality, so it's to the hospital I go. Anyway, he seems curt but really supportive of the mother's input and desires. So I'm happy for what I get. I really want a VBAC, but at the very least I know I'll get a TOL, you know, like another chance to do it the normal way. I hope I can!
Best of luck to everyone. I'll be pretty darn happy once I make it to the last week of September when I can tell people!
