Hello all! I was hesitant to join in but you all are just so lovely and it's so comforting to hear so many of my own thoughts/fears/joys echoed in your posts so here goes.....
I'm Sarah, mother to two sweet girls, Big C 5 /12 and Little C 2 1/2. We are excited to be pregnant but a little nervous due to past experiences. I think my due date is either Nov. 8 or Nov. 12. And some days I feel so GOOD b/c I feel pregnant but not overly sick and tired (which in my unscientific opinion must mean it's a boy-so different than my other pregnancies) and other days (of the whole 6 that I've known I was pregnant) I'm really nervous and freaked out. More peaceful than freaked out, in general. So that's good, I guess!
Last summer, I had an ectopic that ended in a rupture and surgery. All went as well as anyone could hope for in that situation but I've found it to be quite a traumatizing and stressful thing to move past! So, here we are, hoping for the best! And I'm so with any/all of you who have expressed how hard this waiting in the early days is. I really struggle with it! I think by 6 or 7 weeks I can go in for an ultrasound and get confirmation that it is in the right place.
So, I'm really glad to be here. And looking forward to staying here this time!
