Happy... sooooooo happy! I decided on Friday, after my beta, that I wasn't going to test anymore for now because the shading of the lines was freaking me out. If this bean is sticky, it might be our last, and I want to enjoy this pregnancy. No amount of stressing is going to keep this baby with me. I'm trying to focus on the positives, and I'm actually really surprised by how semi-peaceful I am feeling. I actually have a good feeling about this. As it gets closer to tomorrow's beta I'm getting more nervous, but I'm trying not to let it drive me crazy. This is a different approach than I've had before, and I'm hoping that tomorrow's results don't make me feel like an idiot for trying it this way.
I had a lot of weird symptoms the week I tested and then I've felt pretty good. I'm just now 5 1/2 weeks so it's right about now that the symptoms should be kicking in.
I woke up today with enormous porn star boobs! I figured that was a good sign. Then I started thinking about how I haven't been as tired as I have been in the past and then I laid down for a "quick minute" while I was cleaning and woke up almost two hours later.
I just want to get really far into my second trimester and then I think I'll finally be a little more at ease. I feel so unsure and I'm trying to kick any negative thoughts out of my head but this first trimester stuff after loss just plain sucks!

In pain. My back has gone out again, third time this pregnancy. This time, its the worst pain ever! Happy knowing that Im just about 12wks away from delivery and each day is so precious to me. Sad to know that the next time I feel a baby move in a tummy will be with one of my son's baby. Scared for my growth scan on Tuesday and seeing if the blood flow issue has resolved itself.
But most of all, Im looking forward to Aug 10 and 11th as I watch my oldest son graduate boot camp in the Army. It will be 9wks since I last saw him and I will hold him in my arms for those two short days and send him off again for another 4 months without seeing him. August will be very emotional for me, but I cant wait!
Thank you Shortcake for my beautiful siggy..]
Momma of 8 beautiful children now. Most recent is Jerry Jr. born 11/19/12 at 37wk, 7lbs 6oz and 19.5inches and Baby Reymundo born 10/7/13 at 35w6d, 6lbs 7oz, 19.5 inches. Momma of 5 angels. New siggy to come!
I am extremely happy. I hit the 3rd trimester mark. I am loving my Hypnobabies course. I am trying my hardest to just enjoy pregnancy. No use complaining all the time since I have wanted this for so long. I love feeling Marsi move. I am just good.
I am feeling really good about things these days I adore him moving all around and I love that I actually look nice and pregnant right now. People comment on my belly and it makes me happy. I am getting really, really excited for him to come. I am a little nervous about our birthing plans, but getting better about just believing in myself and telling myself I can soooo do this thing! I never thought, in the beginning, that I would get to the delightfully happy stage. I almost don't want it to end!!
Feeling anxious. Worried all the time that I'm not pregnant and just won't know there is a problem until my next appointment. I have no symptoms to lead me to believe there is a problem - just can't wrap my head around that this time things might actually work out. And since the m/s has eased up a bit i don't feel really pregnant.
3 weeks from tomorrow I get my anatomy scan and i've got a trip to Disney in the middle so hopefully that will be a good distraction!
I've looked at my chart (or half chart, I wasn't able to temp for various reasons until about half way through my cycle) trying to figure out if maybe I ovulated late. But if I ovulated late then my hCG would have been impossibly high on the 8th. If anything, I ovulated earlier than "typical" and I'm further along. I just can't figure out the timing for ovulation given timing of sex, the negative test I got on 7/2, the levels I had 7/8, my doubling times, and my symptoms now.

Two 10w losses (11/2010 + 8/2011)
Happy and anxious for anatomy scan on August 3rd.
Kind of annoyed that we're having out of town guests on Friday who are staying with our in laws and I'll be expected to spend every day with them until they leave which will probably at least a week. Love them but really really really like some downtime, you know?
I had my rainbow baby on December 14, 2011. Now my family is complete!
