I’m pregnant again. We found out on January 11th. Between then and now we’ve slowly been telling people while doing several tests and waiting for an ultrasound. Wanted to wait until after that before making an “official” announcement, but also wanted to capture my thoughts early and often. Husband refers to this as “Baby Alzen: The Remix”, so happy listening. 😉
I took a pregnancy test a week ago that was negative. The nausea I was experiencing was apparently from a stomach virus instead of a growing fetus. This week I started to get unusually thirsty. This was one of the first changes I noticed the last time I was pregnant. Sure enough, the second test came back positive.
Of course we’re excited and happy, but we’re also very hesitant this time. I wonder if it’s like this for all couples following a miscarriage or if it’s just our personalities to set up walls to protect ourselves from getting hurt again. I think part of it is that we haven’t told anyone yet. Currently, remembering the exhausting task of tracking down everyone about a miscarriage keeps me hesitant, but I can’t keep quiet for long.
Had the ultrasound this morning and saw a happy little heartbeat. Everything looks healthy and going as it should. They’re estimating me at just about 7 weeks. It’s possible we could have another miscarriage, but just like last time, we’re not the folks who wait to tell people. Would love if you all joined us in celebrating new life and praying for a happy health baby come September 2014!
