I wanted to keep this a secret for a while. And I have, for a few days. But today I'm filled with a surge of Hope that makes me feel okay. Even though my stomach is in knots as I type this (I'm still very fearful).

Wednesday afternoon I decided to take a pregnancy test. It was positive. I was very reserved, VERY reserved. I showed Chris and we just kind of looked at each other. He's reserved as well. Thursday I got it confirmed with a blood test. Definitely pregnant. I also had a little bit of spotting. I began crying in my doctors office afraid I was miscarrying again. He was wonderful though, and got an OB nurse on the phone for me. She told me that it might just be plantation bleeding, and to take it easy and see what happens. Bleeding has subsided. It was very light pinkish, and dried looking at other times. Exactly what she said implantation bleeding looks like.

Today I'm beyond tired. I feel as if I haven't slept for days, and have actually fallen asleep a few times without meaning too... thats a good sign, right?

I confided in one person who has helped me feel so much better about all of this, and today I actually feel that this pregnancy might last. Of course I'll be on pins and needles for the next few weeks, but I thought I'd share with you guys.

Baby Hope is due on August 13th. I guess I'm good at making August babies. This will be my third.

Oh... Beth! I was wondering about your semi-absence around here. I really hope this is it for you. I will be saying little prayers for you and your tiny bean.

Take it easy.

Yay! Yay! Yay! I'm sooooooooooooooooo excited!

There is one correction, though. Your baby is due on 12 August, not 13 August. As Teri's Alisha and I can confirm, that's the coolest day ever to be born on.

Oh Beth! Congrats! I am so happy for you! I hope that you can ease your mind soon, but that feeling of everything is going to be ok is usually right. Got to go with the gut feelings! =-) Another august baby! Yay! Anyways, wishing you a Happy and Healthy 9 months.
