hi there :
Well, after going to the hospital for mastitis, they got me thinking about my LMP, and decided to take a HPT.....which came out positive! Horray!! I'm worried about my milk because my DD is so young (14 months), but we are very excited none the less. I want to have a midwife, but I called he OB who delivered my DD to confirm pregnancy and talk about the mastitis meds, and had that apt. today. Well, their test was positive but light, so they did an US and didnt see anything. They ordered a 48 hour blood draw to see if my levels were going up or down.
I had my first draw today and will have another on saturday, so we'll see I think monday wether I'm staying pregnant or not.....
I was really worried when they said that, but when I got home I realized my period was on the 13-16th of sept, NOT earlier like I thought. I had told them the end of Aug/early sept....
So, heres hoping it sticks! I sure FEEL pregnant! Everything I eat is going right through me (sorry for the TMI, but last pregnancy I got it too, MS through the other end ), I feel sick to my tummy, tired, and nursing HURTS (aside from the mastitis which is mostly gone now thank goodness!

Send me sticky dust please?
I look forward to getting to know all you mamas a lot better in the future! :

update:
the OB has been in surgery all day (glad I go a mifwife with the amount f csections this guy has been doind lately! sheesh!) but I bugged the receptionist until she told me that my numbers went up with the 2nd blood draw from the first! She told me hes the only one who could tell me exactly what the results mean and "read the curve" but I feel a lot better at least knowing they went up and not down. I've had no cramps, no blood, and lots of throwing up So I'm hoping they just had me all worried for nothing!
The receptionist thinks he'll be back to call me before the office is closed today and I sure hope so because it sucks to be just waiting and waiting!

I STILL don't have a due date lol

He called me last night at 10pm (yeah, I had just gone to bed with DD....) because he was finally done at the hospital, and told me that the numbers were lower than he usually sees, but they TRIPLED in the 48 hours so I'm likely just really early in pregnancy and everything looks great as far as hormone levels go! yay! I think I just O'ed later than usual, I'm likely only 4 weeks or so pregnant :
He asked me to come in in 3 weeks for another ultrasound, but I want to talk it over with my midwife first....

so yay! I'm pregnant! and due in late june
