To begin, I have to apologize for my unexplained absence over the last month and a half...wait, 2 months??? Is that right? Ugh....I'm sorry. Life has been....to say the least....in transition. The kids and I are back with Rob, but we are not yet in our own house. My mother-in-law has been gracious enough to let us rent from her until we get the right house. We have started the homeschooling year and gotten back into the routine of co-ops and field trips....
And on top of all that....the news!!!
I'm 10 1/2 weeks pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow...yeah, we were trying but I was not expecting God to bless us so soon, with my past history! So we were kind of blown away and are VERY excited and grateful.
Nausea set in at 5 weeks and I was pretty miserable until my first appointment at 9 weeks when my OB gave me zofran by day and something else for night. We were both surprised that I had lost 7lbs in those first 9 weeks. I had only thrown up a handful of times but it was really the nausea that kept me from wanting to eat or drink- anything! Now that I'm on meds, things are much more manageable and I can eat again! Not alot at one time, but it's a big improvement over not wanting to eat a thing.
Baby was moving during my ultrasound and we saw the heart beating away. It is only one little bean in there (I was pretty convinced that I must be having two with the kind of nausea I was having), and baby was in the right place, measured right on track, and there were no cysts or anything unusual around my ovaries this time! Unbelieveable! Maybe this will really be a problem-free pregnancy! I can hope and pray!
So 10 1/2 weeks gives me a due date of April 11th. This must be God's sense of humor, because Isabel's birthday is April 27th and Ian's is April 5th. Maybe we just make April babies? Anyway, I'm getting too far ahead of myself....I am trying to take it day by day and be thankful for each day I have with this growing little babe...because I know how quickly things can change. My heart has really been torn for the blogger friends who have recently lost babies, and my prayers are with you for God's healing. Also heavy on my heart have been some special bloggers and friends still struggling with infertility. My prayers are for you as well!
I will try to be better about updating! Sadly, I haven't been reading blogs very much either these last two months. Trying to get things balanced while we are trying to find a home ;)
