I just got back from the gyno. I went because I'd been having some pains in my lower abdomen, and I'd thought maybe I was having problems with endometriosis again. Doc said she wanted to do a pelvic exam to make sure everything felt right.
Her eyes got wide, and she looked up at me and asked me if I could be pregnant. DP and I have been on again off again for years, and he's not DD's father (long story). We were together once right after DD was born, and a handful of times since then. We're pretty serious now (just got engaged, in fact!) so I figured it might be a possibility even though AF hadn't returned since DD was born.
Well, we did a test, and got a BFP. Gyno wanted to do an ultrasound to see how far along I might be since I had no idea. She said my uterus felt big, but didn't appear too terribly worried. Anyway, as soon as the u/s image popped up on the screen, I gasped. It looked like a near-term baby!!! My due date is estimated to be April 15th. Oh, lord. DD will not even be 10 months when this one is born!! I held onto about 10 pounds of DD's baby weight, but I don't have any discernible belly. WHAT. I'm so confused. I've had no morning sickness, felt no movement (until now, I'd just thought it was gas).
How is this even possible?? We had sex earlier than my pp check up, but I felt fine. I'm terrified. I'm still processing everything. Oy.
Also, this is perhaps a question for the breastfeeding forum, but DD is still EBF except for a very small amount of baby-led solids. My milk supply seems ok, and she's still gaining weight beautifully. Do I have anything to worry about here?
Somebody call TLC! Oy, ladies, talk me down!! How could I have bee 31 WEEKS pregnant and not know it????
