Well after having my third child, SO's second, I was positive I was done having children. For a few months now, SO has been saying he really wants another. I was not convinced! But, I always kept it in my mind as a possibility. Well on July 8th, I decided I was ready! I spoke to SO and he was thrilled! We discussed when we would like our fourth to be born, and decided that anytime but the summer time would be ideal. It just so happened I would be ovulating on the 10th, and the next few days would be my most fertile! Also, my EDD, if baby was conceived this cycle, would be perfect!! It would be April, when SO isn't too busy at work, and my late mother's bday is April 7th! So we went for it!! BD'd on July 9th, twice, and on the 12th. I cramped from the day I O'd, and at 7DPO I started to get indigestion and gassy. Then at 9DPO my gums bled a lil! I knew I had to be pregnant!! I took HPT's everyday, and got BFN's! I got a lil nervous, thinking I wasn't gonna get a BFP this cycle. On 11DPO, I took a $store test with FMU, and got an iffy second line. At this point I had poas so much that I wasn't sure if I was seeing things, or not. After much debating with SO, he went out and got me a FRER two pack. I took a test as soon as I got my hands on the box! lol! And what do you know? I got my BFP!! I jumped up and down in the bathroom! lol! I came out, put up the test in front of SO, and said "Here we go again! We're pregnant with #4, baby!!!". He smiled and said "I told you!". hahaha! He's never been the sensitive type! But He was very excited!
July 21, 2009 BFP!!
Made my first prenatal for August 24th at 11pm! (8wks and 1day)
Expected AF a NO SHOW! I'm 4 weeks along, according to LMP! Yay!!
As of today, our dad's, closest friends, SO's siblings, and SO's mom, know about our news. With the exception of MIL's reaction to the news yesterday, we are very happy with the reaction of everyone!
I have been experiencing many symptoms. I've been cramping since I O'd, have had a lil hunger increase, constipated, gassy, just started getting sore bb's, a lil fatigue is settling in, and have been dizzy here and there, with a lil queasiness. I think my bump is a lil big, a lil early, this time around, but it could be due to bloating! We shall see how the bump progresses....lol
I'm 5weeks along today! (according to EDD) Over the past couple days I've been feeling a lil more queasy and a lot more fatigue! Starting to get headaches, and think it's related to the constipation and gas. Sexy, huh? lol!
I had a HUGE headache last night. The worst I've ever had!! Went to bed around 10 with the headache, and woke up three times until I finally got up from the pain at 1am! George finally got home at about 1:20am with Tylenol, and by 2am it was finally gone and I was back asleep.
I started getting nausea yesterday. I haven't thrown up yet, knock on wood, but I feel yucky. I hope this doesn't last long!!!
Six weeks today, according to LMP!
Wound up getting very sick around 11pm! Threw up and was on the potty till after 2am! I think it was from being constipated for so long, and/or a lil bug. Felt better in the morning!
What a horrible past couple of days!!! Sunday I was 8weeks! Monday, the 24th, was my first appt. and u/s. Not what i was expecting!!! The baby is measuring 2 weeks behind! I had some blood work done and was basically told to expect the worst! Tuesday morning I got my results back. HCG @ 65,000 adn progesterone @ 16, low! I was rx'd prometrium 200mg, once every night, and have a 2nd u/s scheduled for next monday the 31st, if I don't miscarry before then. All i can do is wait!!!
I had my 2nd u/s today, and no heartbeat. Not much more to say...

Reason: adding info
Oh! I hope you don't feel nauseated very long! And I hear you on the headaches. I get migraines a couple times a week without preventatives (which I obviously can't take now)...I feel your pain. And, I'm glad that Tylenol helps!
