That's right, I have some big news! HUGE news, amazing news, a miracle, and a blessing.
I have kept it quiet for one week now and can no longer hold it in, I would have told you all sooner, but because of people IRL I had to keep it quiet, but NOW I just can't keep it in.
I AM PREGNANT!
Yes, sex does = pregnancy.
A week ago, I was NOT crying tears of joy. This is NOT something we planned to happen SO soon, now fast forward one week later and I am in love with this little blessing and wouldn't have it any other way.
So, here's the thing. Tomorrow I have my first ultrasound, I "think" I will be just barely 6 weeks. So, I am not expecting to see the heartbeat, but just hoping all is well. So here is where you guys come in... with Noah and Aaden so many prayers were said by you all, now here we are again asking you all to say just a quick pray for Baby #3 (B3). I am SO nervous because we all know that the only pregnancy I have carried to term was an IVF pregnancy.
How did this happen? Good question. In mid September I took my last BCP. I figured the boys were a year so we would try for a year on our own and then when they turned two we would start the process of using our frozen embryos. I had a period in October and then again sometime around Thanksgiving and then... Christmas came and I realized my period didn't. I quickly took a test and almost fell over when I saw the two lines. I cried, but not happy tears. After a few days of worry, the worry turned to joy and now here we are.
I worry for my boys, I worry for bedrest, I worry for financial reasons, I worry for my career, but most of all I worry for the health of this baby that I didn't realize would make me smile from ear to ear.
So, tomorrow is our first big hurdle. We hope to see all the normal things you would see at just barely 6 weeks. Next hurdle would be in February when the cerclage would be placed. My doctor doesn't anticipate bedrest with a singleton, so that would be another hurdle to cross. Financially we are discussing selling my car, and maybe moving to a smaller less expensive rental, which isn't ideal, but OH WELL!
We are blessed and I pray constantly for the health of this little blessing, I cannot wait to be a Mama to three, and I cannot wait for N&A to be Big Brothers.
