CAUTIOUSLY HAPPY

Oct 06, 2008 - 7 comments

Well, it's been a while since I updated my journal, something which I use to update quite frequently in May, June & some of July. Then there was the shock of a 3rd missed m/c, and the D&E in the middle of July. DH & I decided to take some time off from the TTC journey, but I kept on w/ my "cocktail" of meds, baby aspirin, prenatal, folbic tablet, and an extra mg of folic acid.

So a week ago Sun, after realizing AF was 7days late, I decided to do an EPT, only because I wanted to rule out preg, cuz there was NOWAY I could be prego. I figured since it was only the 2nd AF since the D&E, that it was just going to be weird, and come whenever it wanted. And being DH & I might have BD maybe 4x all month, I just didn't think I could be prego. So I do the test, and low & behold, a complete shocker, a BFP!

This will be our 4th preg in 15 months. We're are CAUTIOUSLY happy. I've done 2 betas, had good numbers that doubled in 2 days, BUT ultimately an u/s will tell us what we need to know.  I've been offered to do an u/s this Wed, where i'll be 6W5D, but I'm REALLY scared. Getting the great betas took a really heavy weight of my shoulders, but the u/s will tell me the real truth. I do have a different outlook on things these days. I left everything in God's hands, and I got prego. If this baby isn't in his plan, then I can accept it.

I'm praying my cocktail of meds is doing the job. Still contemplating the u/s this wed, I suppose I should just get things over w/ to see if we're going to get good news.

I was a Feb09 mommy, and I miss all the mommies on the site. Seeing all the progressing u/s pics and adorable belly pics always pick me up! You all helped me thru a really hard time!

I'm praying that i end up a May 09 mommy!

Congrats!

Don't feel like you need to rush the ultrasound! take a little time absorbing the news-

The only reason I say this, is because sometimes at 6 weeks the dr will miss a faint heartbeat or not see the baby- I have a tipped uterus and with my daughter (who is two now) they couldn't see the fetus then at 8 weeks BOOM there she was! they were trying so hard to get me to D/C- I refused and asked for one more transvaginal at 8 weeks- they finally gave me one, I think because they wanted me to see that it was time to let go- but low and behold she was there.

So even though you probably feel like you don't want your hopes up- don't run the risk of getting them prematurely dashed either...

I will pray for you!!
