My name is Darcy, I am 30yrs old and my husband & I just found out we are expecting baby #2 by October 10th! :love

Last year we tried for 7 months and by month 8 I thought I was finally pregnant but it turned out to be a blighted ovum. Then two months later I ended up w/ a partial molar pregnancy! I had to have a DNC and get my blood drawn every week until my hormone levels dropped to 0, then my doctor told me I would still have to get my blood done every month for a year and could not attempt to conceive until after a year and that even then my chances of having a healthy pregnancy would be slim. Obviously this was emotionally devastating for me, I sold all of the baby stuff we had kept from our 1st and we decided that we were blessed and okay w/ only having one child.

Then came a surprise...I had missed a few days of my BC while sick with a bad cold but didn't think anything of it and after missing my period in January I took a test and it was positive! I was shocked and scared! I had continued taking my BC up until that morning! My doctor was skeptical and thought the molar had come back but after doing a very thorough ultrasound it was determined that I was indeed 5 wks along. I am so excited but also worried that something will go wrong. I am 8 wks, 3 days and have a long way to go.
