Week 9 - How we found out
Baby L at 8 weeks. Was not expecting another ultrasound. Was so excited to hear that heart beat again! 176 BPM! Strong baby!
We are 9 weeks today and Baby L graduated to a Fetus today! Baby L is a size of a grape.
Before your pregnant you hear all kinds of stories and advice.
I'm only about 4 weeks away from the second trimester and honestly I cannot wait!
The dangers go drastically down in the second trimester and that is really what I get mainly worried and upset about.
I have not really felt like sharing, I guess not knowing where to even start. In early January I was feeling awful. I was so emotional. I knew something was wrong with me. Honestly I was so worried. My anxiety was crazy, I was overwhelmed. All I could do was sleep. I did not know what was going on. I noticed some changes in my body. I actually made an appointment to talk with someone, that is how worried I was.
Well in December I was late, and purchases a cheap pregnancy test. Took it and it was negative. So I just put the other one under the sink. I started a few days later. So it is January 24th, and I realize I still have not started. I was late again. It was the morning and Josh had left for work. I was getting ready for work. It was a Friday. I went and took the test.
Almost immediately I see a positive line. I'm just stood up and said "No, no I'm seeing things." So I left it there for the 5 minutes.
Came back. Still positive. I changed lighting, went to different rooms. Still I could see the line.
I went to the store and bought 5 test all together. I took ALL 5. ALL said I was pregnant. I was so excited! Josh was so thrilled. We both didn't know what to do, we just could not think straight!
I called my mom and she told me to call the Dr. Then go from there.
The Dr. confirmed I was pregnant, and I still could not believe it! I still cry when I think all the emotions I felt that day. Went and seen Josh. We cried. We laughed. Mostly we hugged and smiled.
I had all these symptoms and still never made the connection. Just never thought it could happen naturally. I had finally been at peace with it and was concentrating on our plans and school
January 31st we seen our baby for the first time. However, I was so early all we could see was a gestational sac.
The two weeks that followed were full of fear, happiness, tears, and the biggest thing is HORMONES!
I will write a post about that... trust me its been an adventure.
We seen the baby again on February14th and heard the hearbeat for the first time you can read that here
I have to say the blog will be involving a lot of BABY L!! :)
I know this is long, but this a documentation of our journey through life and on January 24th our lives changed forever. God is just so good to us. His love for us is never ending! He gave us a child... Cannot wait to meet this baby. Only 32 weeks to go! LOL :)
