I just wanted to thank everyone who responded to my post several weeks ago about my brain aneurysm and wanting to have another child. Sorry I didn't respond for so long.

I have since had an MRI that showed my wrapped/clipped aneurysm is unchanged. YAY! The neurosurgeon again said to go ahead with TTC if we want. So we are and now AF is late. If I am pregnant, I will be receiving my prenatal care from a high-risk OBGYN, as many of you suggested, even though my doc insists my risk really isn't that "high". Better safe than sorry.

So can I join ya?

Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.

So I tested Saturday morning. . .BFN. But I'm kind of a dork and can't exactly remember when I got my period last month (I've always been pretty irregular and we weren't TTC) so I don't know exactly how late I am.

I do know that if I don't receive a visit from AF by the 20th, something's definitely up. So I'm gonna TRY to save my other test until then.

I feel SO sure I'm pregnant though. I feel just like I did with my son. He was a totally unplanned pregnancy, but I swear I knew the day after I conceived. It's this full feeling, cramping, breast changes, etc.

I'm actually feeling a little scared too. I trust my doc --implicitly! But part of me is screaming, "What the *&%@ are you doing?" I can only try to stay positive and pray that this pregnancy (if indeed I am pregnant) won't be a freaky, near-death roller coaster like the last one.

Welcome! Keeping my fingers crossed that you get a BFP quickly and have the most boring, normal pregnancy ever!
