So as some of you know from reading my blog I had two miscarriages in the past 10 months. Then loooooong cycles followed suit making it near impossible to time when I was ovulating. so anyway I took charge of my fertility and took my temperature each morning and plotted and graphed, recorded signs, symptoms, mood etc until finally on cycle day 55 I got a positive OPK (ovulation predictor kit)and my temperature reflected my suspicions. So we took a leap of faith and only one week later we got a positive pregnancy test! We are super happy BUT so scared that this bean won't make it. I'm looking for every symptom and yes, I do have a few but nothing compared to when I was pregnant with Jada. and I'm only 5.5 weeks along so this is very early in the game. I'm driving myself crazy and waiting for the call for my ultrasound is putting me in further craziness! I decided to be proactive and bought a 3mhz Doppler ( my DR only has a 2 MHZ) off Ebay but it will take some time to get here and it takes a longer time to actually pick up the fetus heartbeat.
Phew I think that's about all there is to say for now. I am letting you all know now because I could use some extra prayers and good thoughts for our bean. If you could spare a good thought or two it would be greatly appreciated!
P.S If you know me in real life please do not become offended that we did not tell you, as we are keeping this news off of facebook and the like until we hear a heartbeat and get the thumbs up from my DR
Now Before I Chicken out I need to hit publish
thanks for reading
