I am still in shock. We have been trying for several months. This will be -see I am still speaking in future terms- is my 5th pregnancy and a with bad history which includes a stillbirth. And just to make it a little more interesting, some series chronic medical conditions too, including celiac and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have one DD 6 years old, also gluten intolerant. I should be about 4 weeks a 2 days, but doctor today said more like 6 weeks. I think her calculations are off because I know when I O'd and she based it on LMP.
We are currently living in Toyko, Japan which makes this whole birth process even more interesting, especially with a language barrier. Originally I am from New Orleans, DH is from New Zealand and we are here for his sabbatical year. Not sure yet which country we are going to deliver in, it's up for debate next week...AFTER I take my GRE exam which I have been preparing for the last 2 months.
In my free time I do a lot of reading and studying of herbal medicines since I have been moving to a 'less-prescription lifestyle'. I hate taking medicine, it's even worse when you know it might be harming you more then helping.
I did not think it would happen now. And I am half disbelieving that I am going to carry through, but well, I am joining the club anyway!
Congrats to everyone!
