My Pregnancy Journal!! Week 20 (Official U/S Results are in)
UPDATE in 4th Reply!!!!!
Well ladies I have had a LOT of you mention my keeping you updated with pics, u/s, etc. So I figured I will make a post, just like I did while TTC (Which you can view HERE) and it will be a nice way to keep in touch!!! So here goes :)
Background- Af started January 3, 2013. We believe ovulation occured
January 16, 2013.
Our first positive tests 9dpo,10dpo, and 11dpo but I doubted because of past experienced with wondfo!
Retest 11dpo PM
Retests 12dpo FMU
Confirmation 12dpo Blood Test HCG of 32
My 1st Trimester
Obviously I was not preggo yet, but I started spending a lot more time in prayer and reading my devotions asking for God's peace and blessing!
I was in complete denial that ovulation even occurred much less that I would be able to conceive. I had some typical progresterone symptoms early on however that kept me hopeful!
(1/30)Well this has been a great week. Earlier this week I started to "feel" pregnant. I still doubted myself BIG time, for lack of disappointment I think. But I felt very different. I was moody and emotional. I began having severe cramping which I remembered from being in my 2ww with my daughter. I had what I can best describe as round ligament pains (or pains that shot through my lower abdomen when moving to quickly) I also had cervical pains. I had an increase sex drive along with extreme sensitivity and multiple orgasms during sex. This truly made me think...maybe this is it? Even Hubby brought it up. I also had a soft cervix dry cervix! Other then that just typical slight nausea, slight breast pain, slight dizziness, etc.I was completely shocked to find out we were expecting baby #4. I feel so absolutely blessed to be in this position and I am so excited about what is to come. I can't wait to hear my baby's heartbeat on my home doppler, and feel him or her move. And I loved getting fat HAHA I can't wait to get a big bump. Thank the Lord for this blessing again!! And I look forward in continueing to share it with you all!
I set up my first apt with my Midwife on Feb 14. She will meet me here in my home to go over everything! I can't wait!!!
WE PICKED OUT OUR FIRST SET OF NAMES EEEEKKK! (FYI I change names like I change clothes during pregnancy until I find one that fits my baby in utero so I suspect this will change ALOT but we got a set. I really love the girls, name. The boys name is nice but I expect it will change! So here they are :)
Aubrie-Grace Emilia and Elijah O'Dell
(1/31)WE are 4 wks pregnant!!!!
4 wk FMU Wonfo test. I was very excited to see how dark it was!
(2/1)I am feeling really good. I have lost about 5 lbs in about a week. Which is always lovely!! I am never very Hungary, no cravings or anything!! Dizzy spells still come and go along with breast pains. And I am always ready for bed early, AND SLEEP GREAT!! So thus far its really great!!!! It almost makes me nervous!! Strong symptoms always made me feel like it was a good pregnancy. But hopefully it will continue to progress well!
I got to run and grab my pregnancy journal from Barnes & Nobles, which I am so excited to start!
And I also went ahead and got my first baby item. I know its way to early, and something could happen to us still so early, but I have to have faith in this pregnancy. And enjoy every minute :) So I will post a picture!!
(2/4) Still feeling really good. Absolutely loving feeling great and I think its starting to finally set in I'M PREGNANT :) I found another little out fit on sale the other day
My final progression. No more testing here..Its been fun, and its kinda sad it may (or may not) be the last time I ever get to have a positive pregnancy test. But its time to relax and move on. Here are the last of the progressions!
