I had my appointment yesterday! I had no idea how far along I was because my periods are SO weird. I nurse, and I exercise to an extreme at times, both of which play around with my hormones. The last few months or so, I haven't even been able to chart my cycle to know when I ovulated. In September I took a test and it was "positive." All my girlfriends said it was positive, there was a very clear line. But then I took two more other brands, and they were negative. Then I had spotting, which I took as my period, and that first test was a false positive. So I've had a few more weird periods, just spotting the whole time, then mid february I felt weird, very sick, very tired,heartburn etc. So I took a test and it was a dark line before I was even done peeing. So Then I was wondering if the test I took in September was really a false positive, or maybe the other ones were wrong, I drove myself crazy trying to figure out how long ago the symptoms started. I got myself thinking so hard, that I would not have been surprised if the midwife had told me I was 20 weeks along. Every gas bubble, I was like "is that the baby? or gas??" ROFL

Sooooo..... yesterday's appointment, I showed her the picture of the test from Sept. She said it is a positive test, so she was confused too. She tried to feel my fundal height, she said what I had been feeling was muscle, which I didn't have any of when I was pregnant with my first two, so I was mushy back then and it felt different. She couldn't find the heartbeat with the doppler, so she had me do an ultrasound. I thought I was going to be at least 8-10 weeks right now, just from the last time I had bleeding/spotting. They did the ultrasound, and lo, I am ONLY 6 weeks! It is crazy that my test last month even picked it up, let alone was so dark so instantly! She said with my nursing and back on my marathon training schedule, I probably ovulated late, especially since I haven't been able to track anything. She said the test I took in September was a blue dye test, and she has seen quite a few false positives. She said to stick with red dye if I can help it. I told her that won't be an issue, DH claims he's getting fixed after this one.

Due date is October 26th. I'm guessing I'll be a week or two late like I was with my other two, so I'm kind of planning on an early November baby. I'm so happy to finally have an answer. I was going batty.

Thanks all.

I was actually getting kind of upset, thinking maybe I was pregnant since September! I was thinking, gosh if this *is* our last one, I want to savor every moment, not be brushing off movements as gas bubbles. LOL So I am very happy, actually, that I am only six weeks. And the midwife pointed out too, now I have that much more time to prepare for birth, and another little one in the house.
