Taken at 9 weeks...
[written on 10.5.10 - Week 5]
Yes, you read that right... We are pregnant [again]!!! We found out on September 28th and this time, we found out together! It was pretty cute.
If you remember this post when I just couldn't find the groceries... part of my problem was that I came in the house, put most things away then went the bathroom to take my test and brought some things with me that went into the bathroom. When I took the test, without telling Mr. Hope what my plan was, I decided that I would pee on the stick and then leave it in the bathroom for him to see. I went into our 1/2 bath and was fixing my hair because I had just gotten home from work and I didn't want it up anymore. I told him he needed to go in the bathroom and see the results. He was kind of nervous. Asked how long he was supposed to wait and what it would look like if it were positive. We went over the options and before I knew it, he was in there checking.
I was still in the 1/2 bath and I yelled in, "what did it say?" Only to have him come right around the corner and say, "it worked, it's positive!" And immediately we hugged. It was pretty cute. We're both so excited and being very cautious about what we do or say until we know that we're in the clear. I actually go to the dr. on Friday [10.8.10] to make sure that everything is in order for this pregnancy. I'm not sure that she'll actually tell me anything other than take it easy and take your vitamins, but I wanted to check. They weren't reluctant to get me in, so I'm just going with it. Plus, it will be good to see my dr. again and tell her that we're pregnant.
Over the last few weeks, I've not been feeling good. Before we found out that we were expecting, I started to get a scratchy throat, that turned into a drainage thing, and then it turned into a sinus headache. I'm working through the sinus headache now and before I knew I was pregnant, I was doing theraflu cold and cough. Only to know now that I couldn't take that. So today, because my headache is getting so painful, I called my dr. She said that I can take Robitussin, Tylenol Cold and Tylenol but not the two Tylenol's together. My only problem today, is that I don't have any of those things. So I'm just suffering through it. They did say that if my headache wasn't soothed by those things that I needed to see my family dr. or visit the urgent care/emergency room. It's not that bad but I'll keep that in mind, just in case.
Other than that, you'll see that we have a new name for our embryo, Sprout. It's an "s" name, I know. But it's super cute and I really like it! And yes, Mr. Hope came up with this one again... He's good like that.
Outside of my cold, I've had a few moments of nausea but nothing that wasn't cured by drinking some water, taking a nap, laying down, or eating something. It's been pretty managable, just annoying from time to time.
I feel pretty good and I'm axious to meet to with my dr. I'll write about that once I've met with her on Friday.
Oh yea, and it appears [from all the online pregnancy calculators] that we're going to be due around or on June 4th, 2011. In our minds this couldn't be a more perfect time, because with my husband being a teacher, he'll be in his final weeks before getting out for summer as we stretch to meet the due date! And once I'm done with my maternity leave, he'll still be on break. What a joy!
More to come...
UPDATED TO SAY: Today on December 6, 2010, I'm 14 weeks and 3 days.
