Hi to anyone that reads this! I think I'm doing this right hopefully. Journaling looked like a good idea so I thought I'd give it a try. Please bare with me! (:
In March, I was seeing my boyfriend of two years (now ex). About mid-March we had a night unprotected, but didn't think any thing of it. We broke up a few days later, feeling like I had drifted apart from him.
On March 31st, I went out with a guy I have known for about 2 years. We decided to keep seeing each other a lot, even though he lives over an hour away. We were unprotected since he had gotten a vasectomy before we ever really talked.
April 13th came with a few days early menstrual period. This was weird for me since it was early & lasted two days (I'm normally on time and lasts longer than two days). It worried me enough to get a HPT, which came back negative.
May 15th came (my normal menstrual day) & nothing. I waited a couple weeks and still nothing. I then took another at home test and out popped the dark blue positive line. I called my boyfriend, Anthony, right away. He knew I was having a problem with my cycle and we had talked about if it happened that I was pregnant from my ex and the first was a dud. He agreed to stay with me, knowing that it was impossible for him to be the biological father.
In June, I went and told my ex, who I suspected to be the biological father. He rejected the idea that it could be his and stopped talking to me.
July 9th came, my first check up. I wasn't measuring the 16 or so weeks which we had figured, so my doctor got me an ultrasound right away. My ultrasound measured the baby at 13w, 4d which put my conception date on April 8th.
After the news, Anthony went to get himself checked ( he hadn't went back after the vasectomy, figuring it had worked).. It hadn't, which put us in a questioning state.
Anthony is set in his ways, believing and happy that the baby is his. I have tried to contact my ex, but have received nothing.
Anyways, yesterday was my 2nd checkup. Baby's heartbeat was over 160 and healthy. Until we got to my ultrasound results. It turns out I have an 'underlying' placenta, which he wants to keep an eye on. Later I Googled it, now confused where exactly the placenta is since there are different spots which mean different things. I was up every few hours last night from nightmares about the baby.
My doctor doesn't want my ultrasound until September, but if I start having pain or bleeding I'll go in for an ultrasound right away. Right now I'm just praying for this baby. <3
Absolutely love this, btw. Helped me get a lot out.
Hi and welcome to journaling! Sounds like you've had quite a journey so far! I'm glad that Anthony is happy and set in his ways...sounds like you have a real keeper there. Glad your baby has a nice healthy heartbeat. Keep on thinking great thoughts, and September will be here before you know it!
