Hi All! I just wanted to give an introduction. I took a Dollar Tree test on Wednesday night, Dec 8, one day after my missed AF and got a BFP!! DH and I weren't trying, but we weren't preventing, either. We've both always felt like we were meant to have one more baby, but thought we were a bit crazy, since I'm 39. We also felt that, if we got pregnant with another, it was meant to be. My youngest is almost 5 (Jan 2), so it's been a while since I had to think about all the needs of pregnancy and having a baby.
It's really odd timing, because I just started a job on Dec. 1 and got my BFP exactly 1 week after I started. Not really sure when I should tell my employer, but I'm thinking about waiting until I start to show a bit. The only problem with it is, I am required to lift boxes up to 25-35 lbs. It's not regular, but often enough. Plus, I end up walking at least a few miles each day, plus 3 flights of stairs several times a day. With my last pregnancy, I had bleeding problems right after my BFP, and had to take it easy for a few weeks, just to be careful. I'm not sure what I'll do if it happens again.
My kids are going to be so excited when we tell them. We were thinking about telling them tonight. With Christmas coming, it would be really hard to keep it a secret with all of my family around, so we'll be telling the family in a couple weeks. It's only fair to tell the kids before that. Here's to hoping they can keep a secret!! :D
Anyway, I can't wait to get to know all of you and to have this great group of ladies to talk to during the next 9+ months.
