I am pregnant! We are so over the moon, incredibly happy! There were lots of happy tears this morning. The line is way darker than two days ago. (See below) I had told quite a few people about our struggles and those people who knew we were trying to get pregnant got a call or text this morning. My momma being the first and she was so happy I thought she might start crying.
I called the doctor and talked to her nurse. They started talking about scheduling a pregnancy confirmation appointment with ultrasound at 8 weeks. I was like, “do you guys not do blood work? I follow a lot of blogs where people get blood work done.” The nurse said that they don’t usually do blood work but they can. I told her that it would make me feel a lot better if we had blood work done because I am a worrier. I am getting my hcg and progesterone tested today and then retested on Thursday. I am a huge believer in being your own advocate in everything especially when it comes to your health. I am the one that has to pay for it so it shouldn’t matter to you guys.
I have my 8 week appointment scheduled for September 16th and they said that they do ultrasounds at a different building on the complex and that they would call me to get that one scheduled but they try to schedule it all on one day.
So far, I am only feeling really extremely sore boobs which makes it hard for me to sleep since I sleep on my stomach. But any symptom makes me happy because I know it means I am pregnant. My cramping from this weekend has pretty much stopped though the nurse said it could continue for a few more weeks. She also said it is not uncommon to have spotting and not to be worried unless it is a full flow like a period. Thankfully I have had zero spotting and I hope it stays this way. I know if I start spotting I will freak out regardless of what they say.
I started looking for a book to get…like a “what to expect when you are expecting” for myself and for Jay. Does anyone have any recommendations. As you know I love to be informed and do research and I would love to have a book to guide me.
