Here's the announcement that many of you already know -- thanks to Facebook, word of mouth, loud announcements, etc.
I am pregnant!
Yep, this positive pregnancy test goes way back to late Friday evening, October 28, 2011.
Without going into too much personal detail, we were a bit surprised. If somebody would've told us that morning that, by the time we went to bed, we'd know we were expecting another child, that somebody might've received a strange look.
Marc was actually gone that evening....at church, counting money from our church's Judgement House production.
If you like to read complete and utter honesty, here it is: When I saw the positive pregnancy test (when Marc was gone), I seriously laughed. I didn't laugh because I was upset or anything....in fact, quite the opposite was true. I was excited.
I was just surprised and had to laugh at God's timing....you're just going to have to trust me....I'm not going into a lot of details.
When Marc came home (Luke was in bed at this point), I said, "Do you want to hear something kind of funny?" He said, "Sure." (AND, I know he wasn't expecting this at all).
I said, "I'm pregnant."
Marc responded, "Really?" (with excitement)....
And, it's all gone from there.
SOOOOOOOO, Lord willing, Luke will be a big brother at the end of June/first of July. The official due date is July 6....we'll see what happens.
On another pregnancy note....
At nine weeks, I had a sonogram. The sono tech made a couple of weird comments that concerned me (but I know they're not supposed to say everything).
Two days later, I received a phone call from my dr's office stating that the radiologist's report came back on the sono. There was an abnormality with the gestational sac.....Come back for another sono at 11 weeks (two weeks later).
I was a MESS for a couple of weeks. Researching this topic on the internet, as is with other health topics, reveals NOTHING good. I was convinced that pregnancy would possibly miscarry.
Finally, Marc kindly suggested I get off of the internet with that topic. I did. Admittedly, I was better then.
At 11 weeks, we went in for the 2nd sono. The tech didn't say anything. But, my dr's office called first thing the next morning to say that the abnormality had corrected itself!!!!!
So, we're all good right now.
Everybody always wants to know how I'm feeling....I felt rather crappy from about 6 weeks - 12 weeks. Since then, the nausea is mostly gone (though it creeps up occasionally). I have been very tired, and that has not yet subsided.
The worst part has been that, for the last two weeks, I've had this head cold that I CANNOT get rid of.
When I was at my routine prenatal appt. last week, I had my dr. listen to my lungs....Yep, they sounded clear. And, I haven't had a fever.
SO, there's nothing that I can take to help it. I'll just have to "ride it out."
It'll get better, but it's frustrating.
