to wonderful people with on the way!
Well, after 4 years, 4 mc, SIF and coming to terms with not having anymore kids and selling/donating all of the baby loot (diapers, Ergo, stroller etc) just weeks ago I had several days of clues (sore breasts, fuller breasts, tiredness, weak stomach) followed by two DARK pink lines last night and confirmation from my doctor this afternoon. I am a tad unsure of my LMP date since we had stopped TTC a few months ago. But the baby is due not later than Jan 20th ( I recall the week I had my period in April). Excited, but after 4 mc we are nervous nellies. I had blood drawn today to check my hcg levels and will do that again on Friday. Have an early ultrasound scheduled for Tuesday. Wish me sticky-ness. I really want it to actually happen this time. In positive news, I have more nausea and breast tenderness than I did with my earlier miscarriages, which could be a good sign. And the miscarriages were all close together, fairly soon after my first c-section birth...I keep telling myself that I just needed more time to recover and get healthy. Both my husband and my mother claimed to dream a couple weeks ago that I was pregnant. We shall see.
Regarding me: I am just about 28 and have been married for 6 years. We have 1 son who is 5 next month. I WOH in a field I love (non-profit management and fundraising) but my career is flexible with some telecommuting time. My husband is a ft student and works pt in a medical field. We have been through a lot to get to this point and I am really hoping it works out. My husband was so sweet about the surprise test- last night when he brought me my prenatal vitamin, he brought 2 champagne glasses filled with water to toast the BFP test.
