Can I tiptoe in here? I know the same can be said for all of us, but I am so very nervous and tentative with this one. Got confirmation this morning that there is indeed a little bean in there. I'm a bit nervous, as my symptoms (or rather lack thereof) are the same as with Paisley. With Bug I was exhausted and with Riley I knew almost from conception that I was pregnant and had symptoms even before I could realistically test. With this little bean and with Paisley I haven't really had symptoms...more just suspicions because I've been more aware of when I ovulated and knew there was at least one time around ovulation with each of them that we didn't use protection. (My problem isn't getting pregnant...it's staying pregnant. I'm evidently rather a fertile myrtle, I just can't hang onto them).
Of course right now I feel like crud, but I think it's more due to this crummy head cold that Bug gave me!! Sitting here drinking orange juice and wondering what all I can do naturally to relieve the crud. I guess you could say with this little bean I am CAUTIOUSLY optimistic...because unlike with Riley and Paisley, I have been religiously taking prenatals and will be calling later today to see about getting in to see a doctor right away to check my levels and see if I need to be on progesterone, etc. I'm going to be so much more proactive in trying to keep this bean!! With Paisley, even after the early (4wk) loss of Riley I think I got too laid back about it all after the first 2-3 weeks...and wouldn't you know, at 4 weeks from knowing (at 8 wks) I started spotting...and hearing the heartbeat didn't mean anything.
The lack of symptoms at this stage don't worry me overly much...but like I told my friend, if it meant a healthy take-home baby, I'd be totally willing to deal with morning sickness!! I had pretty much round the clock queasies with Bug, but only threw up once...so yeah...I'd welcome the queasies (even the pukies) if it means this one sticks and is healthy!!
