I haven't posted I think at all since having Jakob 8 months ago...He was a very fussy newborn, and didn't sleep, and now he's crawling and into everything, so it's hard to find computer time...but of course he's so worth it!! I love him so much, and he's brought so much happiness into our house...We all love him

Yesterday I took a pregnancy test even though I was spotting and thought AF was coming...I never expected to see a line, but I did...I then took 2 more tests and both came up positive! so I guess i'm pregnant!...I'm not sure of an exact due date because my cycles are so short, but i'm thinking somewhere around feb 20th...I was due with Ella in Feb, so it's going to be interesting to go through a pregnancy the same time as hers...I'm still in shock! I honestly didn't think I was pregnant and had just bought 2 boxes of tampons the day before expecting AF at any minute...I wasn't on birth control, and we usually do "pull n pray" which actually works well for us...Well one time DH didn't, and the next day I had a positive OPK...I never thought it would happen without even trying after everything we went through to get pregnant with Jakob...I got a blood draw yesterday and will get another tomorrow...My dr also prescribed me some progesterone which i'll pick up and start using tonight...My spotting has slowed way down today *knock on wood*, but i'm still very cautious about it...I haven't told anyone outside of JM yet, so no mention on my FB for those of you who know me...I haven't even told my mom yet! I did tell our kids because they are older and would of figured it out eventually, especially if something goes wrong...I wanted to let them know.

I took another FRER this morning and it's a little darker than yesterday...I hope I don't obsess about lines too much, but i've got like 100 IC's so I figured what the heck might as well keep taking tests.

here's a picture of yesterday and today's tests ( also took a digital yesterday too)





and here's my sweet 8 month old boy

Congrats! I'm also a little worried about a Feb EDD since that is when we lost our Lilly I am really excited about how many PAL ladies that are in the Feb DDC so far

BTW Jakob is ADORABLE!

thanks ladies....I don't think it's actually hit me yet...maybe when the morning sickness starts....I think i'm still in shock honestly....I'm hoping that this pregnancy is easier than my last, and i'm too busy with Jakob to worry constantly like I did with his pregnancy...Going to get my 2nd blood draw today....I'm going to ask at the lab if they can tell me the numbers from friday, if not then i'll find out tomorrow.
