We’re having a…..


Oh I just laughed and laughed when the nurse called to tell us. Between my sisters and I there is one girl and this will be the 7th boy! My third 🙂 I love my boys though, I always knew I was going to be a boy mommy and now I will have 3 sons.  Very excited and happy. Genetically everything looks great. Next stop, anatomy scan around 20 weeks. I’m 14 weeks today and sporting a little bump and feeling fine!

    Congratulations on your pregnancy! Thank you so much for sharing all of the details of your own experience. It is very encouraging. I am curious, how do you know when/if your pregancies are “early implanters” or not? Is it because the Hcg tests start showing positive sooner after ovulation?

      Yes, that is how I gauge it. All 3 of my successful pregnancies (I’m assuming this one will be successful) I have gotten a positive test by 10DPO (E1 was 8DPO but would have been 7DPO if I had tested, E2 was 9DPO.) All my miscarriages were 11DPO or later. Now I’ve known MANY women who have gotten positives at 11DPO or later and it has worked out for them, but that is my pattern and I do think its interesting.

    Congratulations, on your new baby boy!! Your story has given me so much hope. It was nice to see my fears ,my dreams ,and my craziness coming from someone else. YAY, I’m not CRAZY, just a women who has lost her children before she got a chance to show them how much she loves them. Unfortunately, we lost our third baby this Father’s day. A part of me doesn’t want to try again but when I tickle my daughter I know it so worth it. My first pregnancy ended as a chemical pregnancy, I was 22, my family as a history of difficult pregnancy after 25, needless to say I thought I was going through it early. We waited several months and tried again in July 2010. Amazingly, We got pregnant on the first try again. I was so excited and scared at the same time, its a feeling most will never understand. First it was get past the first 5 weeks, that’s when I had my miscarriage, then it was see a baby on sonogram , next it was hear the heart beat, then it’s make sure it’s a healthy baby. The trepidation never really goes away. Amazingly, she was born April 2011. I am so happy for the blessing she has been. And in May of this year, out of no where, I’m ready for another baby. Again, we get pregnant on the first try. BUT, I know in the bottom of heart its not going last.( Did I cause it?? Of Course Not!! Why doesn’t it feel that way?) So, my husband and I have decided to stop “trying” and just have fun in bed. I am secretly hoping to get pregnant again on the first go around, realizing it’s July again, and morbidly analyzing that before my daughter I had a chemical Pregnancy as well. Again, I just wanted to say thank you. I cried, I laughed, and was reminded of how much our children are worth the emotional rollercoaster.

      I’m so sorry to hear about what you have been through. I understand how it feels to secretly hope to get pregnant and yet be scared sh*tless that it will actually happen…and what will happen after that. I’m glad you found some comfort here. Best of luck on your journey.
