Pregnant!

I have been taking tests almost daily for 4 days. My friend Tisha was insistent that she had a hunch I was preg so she bought 7 of them, for everyday until I would "know for sure." I finally got tired of taking the Dollar Tree tests which rarely tell you early and decided to pull out the REAL GUNS. I took an EPT which will usually tell you 5 days early.

Two lines.


Yikes!

Apparently we only get pregnant in April.

Grayson's due date was January 4 and his birthday is January 13, 07

Jonathan's due date was January 10, 09

This baby's due date will be January 14, 10

SO let the worrying begin! I can't say just how scared I am that this baby will have Anencephaly and die. But I am trying not to dwell on it. Lightning doesn't strike twice in one place right? And I am on a TON of folic acid- 4 mg, as opposed to 4-800 micrograms that the normal woman takes.

Fingers crossed.

We're having a baby!! :)

Rock on, Jaimey!!! From personal experience, it's a scary ride until you get back the good news from your amnio (if that's the route you are going) and then the tears of relief and joy make the 2nd half of the pregnancy amazing and more special than you can imagine!

Unfortunately, I wish I could say that the worry will decrease over time, but it doesn't. Our rainbow baby is finally here and I still have to pinch myself to know that it's real, that he's healthy, and that he's really home to stay. One day at a time, one check up at a time, one heartbeat at a time. You're in my thoughts and prayers! I so know what you are feeling, and scared and anxious are just words that don't describe a fraction of the 'feelings.' By the way, I think it's good you told your secret. No matter what happens, you'll need support throughout!
