We are PREGNANT!!!

crazy. We were trying. I got some vitamins and stuff from "Nature's Pharmacy" and I guess they worked! I was charting so I started testing last week Thursday and was getting these faint shadows that didn't look positive but they definitely weren't negative. Last night on Joey's 6 month birthday/angelversary I got a definite positive on a dollar tree test and today on a digital. I just can't believe it. I expected to be trying for months and months but I've only had 2 ppaf's.

Last night I completely had a breakdown before I tested. Sometimes I step back and say how the f**k did I get here? 6 months? really? I feel like it was ages ago, I feel like it was yesterday, I feel like I'm doing incredibly well, I feel like I should be more sad, I feel like it never happened, I feel like I'm pregnant with Joey.

I never thought I could feel so many things at once. I'm so over the moon excited. I'm scared out of my mind. I want this baby, but I want Joey back. How do you differentiate?

With a stillbirth at 40wks, there is no safe time...when the heck do i tell people?


I'm not sick. My boobs are killing me. I have wicked cramps. But I'm so thankful I'm not sick. So far this is much more like Jamie's pregnancy than Joey's which is good for me psychologically.


Anyway, just wanted to share my immense joy and unbelievable sorrow and confusion wtih you wonderful ladies I'm so looking forward to snuggling a newborn! FINALLY!

due mid-June.

Woooo! I am so excited for you and I know exactly how you feel! I got my BFP 7 months to the day after Ethan was born, and I was excited and terrified at the same time!!! I am going to be your cheering section these whole 9 months!

My first ultrasound with Erin was on Cora's 6 month angel day. And I felt all those same things. By the time Erin was born, I felt like I'd been pregnant for nearly 2 years straight. (and with Erin I was due June 21st, so you're doing the same thing I did!)

It's exciting but so incredibly terrifying at the same time. A huge messy jumbly knot of every emotion possible.

Hey Rebecca we're not that far off from each other! ONly a couple weeks! Of course, with triplets you'll probably be earlier than 40wks, but my doc with Joey had said we were inducing by 37wks next time. I'm going to a different doc though so we'll see.

Thanks ladies!

Kathryn,

If you don't mind me asking, did you ever find out the reason for the stillbirth? Also how soon did you start to TTC ?

Joey's cord was really tight around his neck so they are assuming cord accident butu we declined autopsy. He also had a single umbilical artery/2 vessel cord and a medium sized omphalocele so any number of additional things could have been wrong that we didn't know about. Genetically he was normal. I just couldn't live with the "we don't know what caused this" but I CAN live with "it was probably this or this". If I remember correctly Jamie (ds1)'s cord was also around his neck twice but it didn't cause him any problems. We'll be monitored closely this time and I'm trying to get in touch wtih Dr. Collins at the Pregnancy Institute who researches cord accidents.

I didn't get a ppaf until July 9th or something and Joey was born april 4. We pretty much started right away as my cycles are really irratic and many are anovulatory. Our doctor told us to "not be pregnant for a year" and i said "yeah right!" plus ds1 is 5 now and we don't want the age gap to get any bigger if we can help it. I had it in my head that it would take months and months, but this time I just knew I was prego! My 2nd ppaf was august 31 (over 50 days from the first!) and I started taking like 9 vitamins each morning prescribed by a homeopathic pharmacist, as well as a female endocrine spray 3x/day and vitex 2x/day and I think I finally o'ed around cd24 or so. My goal was just to ovulate and regulate my cycle a bit, but we caught the egg. So we got our bfp officially on Joey's 6 month angelversary.
