I've Been Keeping a Secret

A very small, very sweet, 7 and a half week old secret.


We have one wee babe that survived the journey through my deformed tubes and found it's place in my ute.  It has a nice strong heartbeat and my EDD is May 11, 2013 which is also my mom's birthday.  Today I am 7w5d.  I've been really nervous since that test came up "pregnant" that I would have another ectopic.  I went for many, many blood draws and was assured that my betas were normal and doubling in a way they never did for my ectopic.  But it wasn't until Monday when I went for the u/s and saw the tiny baby right where s/he was supposed to be.

I've been feeling really sick with this pregnancy.  The nausea comes in waves all day long, but I've managed to skate by with minimal heartburn, which was torturous with Isabella.  And being pregnant all by yourself is a lot different than being pregnant with a toddler so the exhaustion is hitting all new peaks.

But I'm happy and hopeful that this baby will stick.  I still have about 4 weeks until I'm out of the "red zone" and I have a really good feeling about this one.

Now might be a good time to invest in some new kid videos so you can nap on the couch while big sis watches tv.

Congratulations! So very excited for you. I'm due next week and have been very sick this time around - I hope the nausea goes away for you soon. And it is tough when you have a toddler. I'm not sure how people do it! Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy!

That's so awesome!! I'm praying for a wonderfully healthy pregnancy, even with the sickness.

Stefani said...

Yay!!!!!! Congrats!! :) it is so much different the second time around, especially after a loss but if baby is tucked in tight and has a strong heartbeat that is a wonderful sign :) I'm so happy for you and I hope the nausea passes quickly - that's musetabe. Hugs to you!!! :)
