Here we go again...

Welp, it would seem I'm pregnant again.
It's still unofficial as Dr. K won't do a beta until 14dpo, which is Thursday. But four tests agree.

I actually was dreaming I was pregnant yesterday morning, woke up and took a test. And then another to confirm.

It was sort of strange how calm I felt most of yesterday. I smiled, told Robbie he was going to be a big brother, then set about my normal morning. I ended up running all over town looking for a big brother shirt for Robbie to surprise David. I took the afternoon off and asked David to meet us for dinner. Changed Robbie quickly before we went.

Of course, David being Mr. Oblivious never did notice. I had to prod about his new shirt "Oh it's nice, where'd you get it." I just started laughing. He FINALLY got it and just grinned. We started planning right away. NOT something the old Trish would have done.

At one point the waitress asked if we had other children and we glanced at each other like "do we tell?!" and I did. She was so excited. You could tell she's definitely not infertile.

This morning I got up and took another. It was extremely, extremely light. I started to panic. Took another (last one in the drawer.) and it's about the same as yesterday. Maybe a little lighter. I spent about 45 minutes fighting back panic about a chemical pregnancy. In the end, I gained control of the anxiety. I know that what is to be is to be. This pregnancy is in God's hands and no matter how many sticks I pee on, that's not going to change.

I debated buying more tests today, but ultimately decided to wait for my Thursday beta. The RE's office did call me in some prometrium (hello gooey crotch. Oh how I've missed you.) and some folguard. Once it's official on Thursday, I'll call my OB & my high risk OB and see how they want to proceed.

I assume my first u/s will be the week after Easter. We just hope for ONE healthy baby. I did have two good follicles at my scan, so anything is possible.

So here we go again. Pregnancy #4. Can we get a baby #2?

I have been thinking about you so much the past couple days...the waiting was killing me. Congrats! You are in my prayers.

Congrats! I am sure you know this but I will tell you anyway. there is so little HCG at this point the color of the test does not matter. A positive before 14 days is a positive. I used to go crazy about how dark the stick was. Good luck on Thursday. I have been checking yur blog daily to see if you were going to POAS.
I am very happy for you!

Thank you to everyone.
Pretty sure morning sickness started this morning already, which is reassuring (and unpleasant) so we'll see what tomorrow brings.

Ramblin' Red said...

Damn...I'm all teary and I know hardly anything beyond what you've written.

I've never lost a baby, never struggled to get pregnant (3 kids) and yet the pain, the baited breath of hope you must be feeling reached out to me and held on. May God bless your family with peace and health for 9 months, resulting in 2 wonderful miracles.
