let the ride begin....

I'm pregnant! I had some abdominal pain Thursday night, and called my clinic for advice. The doctor on call wanted me to take a pregnancy test to rule out an ectopic pregnancy. (a tubal pregnancy). I took a test, and it came out positive, so I went into the ER. The tests were all inconclusive either way, so they kept me overnight. In the morning, they were STILL inconclusive, though the doctor was fairly sure it was not a tubal, since I had no more pain. However, they kept me all day Friday just to be sure. Some of the hormone levels were not rising as fast as expected for a normal pregnancy, so I had to go back in today for more blood work. The results just came back, and everything looks great!!!

My doctor hasn't given me a due date, but according to the Internet (lol), my due date is October 17th.

We haven't told Kaia yet. We're going to buy her a "I'm a Big Sister" T-shirt and let her read it to find out.

Though this was a bit earlier than we had anticipated for another child, we're really excited! We'll keep ya'll updated as the months go on.....



This part really should be it's own post, but gonna add it here.


Andrea came Thursday night to be with me in the hospital. She stayed with me all night, and all day the next day. I wasn't released until around 9 pm on Friday night. She was with me the whole time. I would have been climbing the walls without her, since most of my time there was waiting, waiting, and more waiting.

Thank you, Andrea, for being there. It meant SO MUCH to me.
