This is my blog to keep track of my journey on getting and being pregnant. I had my fist miscarriage around 11/17/11, but I will not let this hold me back. I never thought about miscarriage my fear was always that I couldn't get pregnant. It took a while for my body to get back on track but we are now pregnant again thanks to our faith and not giving up hope! I'll rant, talk about my fears, my strugles, the high points, and the lows. I'll be a first time mom and would love any tips or help you can give.
Mama to be is 26 years old and a photographer, Baker and part time nanny. Younger sister, 2nd oldest cousin, loves her cat almost more then anything.
Daddy to be is 28 years old and a railroad employee and taste tester of baked goods. Youngest brother to two sisters and a brother, uncle to 2 nieces and 5 nephews.
We started our ttc journey in June 2011. I became pregnant on my 3rd cycle of trying, the end of September. We were very excited and had our first ultra sound on Nov 17th but they did not find a heart beat. We cried and cried that we lost our little ball of excitement and love and 10 days later I miscarried. I was 9 weeks along but had hope that I would soon try again.
Little did I know that my cycle would not be normal after the miscarriage. My first cycle including the miscarriage was 107 days! It was long and stressful but I knew god would get me on tack when he was ready. I’m now in my 2nd cycle and recorded 3 positive opks 3 different weeks. I decided it was now time to seek help and get things back to normal. I found a new doctor who is kind and caring. I look forward to seeing her on April 28th to discuss my blood work and what might be going on with me.
The main thing she told me was not to bbt anymore or stress! Because that will wreck everything. She said to keep using opks but once I get one positive don’t keep taking them. So here we go on a new more relaxed ttc journey :-)
4 days after I met my new doctor and stopped bbt, I still had not gotten my period yet, I saw on the paper work for my blood work they were checking my Hcg so I said what the heck let me take a hpt (which came up negative) and then another opk (the 4th positive one I got this cycle). It came up positive, now Husband and I had just bd the night before, not knowing the surprise we would get Monday afternoon. Husband wanted to keep bding but I was already late in my cycle (cd 47) and was nervous because I was ovulating late. I said “if it happens then it’s ment to be I don’t want to try this time, I’m fine with just letting it happen. If I didn’t take the opk we wouldn’t have known anyway”
Brown creamy discharge started 9 days later and then we found out that we are in fact pregnant again! So 5 months after we lost our first ball of joy we are excited and ready for our next ball of joy!
At our 20 week ultra sound we found out that we are having a little girl! We are naming her Kennedy Emma and she is due Jan 6th 2013!
