One door closes....

Another one opens!

I told you all we were having a HUGE week, well last week I was awaiting my first period after the miscarriage and it did not come, and I was feeling like death! So I figured, hey why not take a pregnancy test, thinking there was NO way I would be pregnant considering I just miscarried on June 1st. 

Well of course first thing that morning I did not have to pee....seriously so annoying because I ALWAYS pee first thing, anyways about 10am I finally felt the urge to pee so I ran into the bathroom with my stick in hand and peed, literally as I was pulling it out of the pee stream (haha that makes me giggle), the plus sign appeared! HOLY MOSES! I was in shock, it never appears that QUICK and it was dark as night, I was clearly pregnant again!!

But of course now I am a tad hesitant to get too excited. 

We had NO idea how far along I was since I did not even have a chance to have a period, so I went in Tuesday for blood work and my numbers came back pretty HIGH, we had thought I was only about 4 weeks, so seeing that my hcg levels were over 29,000 was a tad concerning, I of course started thinking what if it's twins!? {insert panic attacks} The nurse said well you must be about 7 weeks, which wasn't adding up since just 7 weeks ago there was ANOTHER baby there that we were about to miscarry. We scheduled an ultrasound as soon as possible which happened to be today. (It was originally Monday but I HAD to move it up...I do not handle suspense well!)

I could not sleep thinking about the what if's and just the stress of it all. Last time I had an ultrasound was in the ER, the day before I miscarried and it was a horrible experience that I never want to relive again. I had to drink a TON of water for the ultrasound which I thought was weird since they usually do the 1st ultrasound transvaginally, well they did it externally which was really cool since I wore a dress haha! So I hiked it up and the gel was applied and off she went. I mentioned I drank a ton of water...well I had to pee horribly and was not allowed to, so every movement of the wand made the urge that much worse. On top of that my heart was very heavy the entire time because I had no clue what to expect since I may or may not be very far along. She measured my ovaries and all the boring stuff then she said she found the baby bean...with a HEARTBEAT!! I was so excited, she even pulled up the audio and we got to hear it, it was really truly the first time I have really gotten choked up hearing it. She informed me that the baby is measuring 6w4d give or take a few days, which just baffles me since I miscarried 7w2d ago! God certainly works in mysterious ways and I am LOVING every moment of it! 

The picture is crummy because it was from my cell, and the baby is SO tiny still!  But see it on the right side...oh and there's only ONE haha! 

I am extra excited because this baby is stronger and bigger than the baby I miscarried so that is a BONUS, I am just praying everything works out the way it should this time around! I just want to get to 12 weeks then I will feel a little bit better! We are beyond excited for this little bean and cannot wait to extend our family of 4 to a family of 5. I am still in a little bit of a panic of how I will be able to handle it all, but it will all work out, it always does! For now I am just grateful for the blessing we received and cannot wait to meet him or HER in March...ps it better be a girl! I NEED PINK in this house! haha

I struggled for a minute about when to spill the beans but last time I told you all ANYWAY that I miscarried so who cares, I am pregnant and I want everyone to know it! lol Good or bad we will get through it! Hopefully it is all GOOD this time around! 

If you could please, keep us in your thoughts and prayers through this first trimester!! xoxo

  14. Awww I just found your blog b/c you posted a comment on Raven's blog. I've got two boys too (3 and 1 year) and we (I) was sooooo set on going for the girl. But I think we are probably going to stop with our two boys. Definitely haven't completely ruled out another one in a few years but for now, there's no way. So I will be stalking your blog to see what this little bean ends up being and then stalking to see how you handle another one! Maybe it will help us make a decision later on! Hope you get your girl!!! But I know you know how wonderful those little boys are too so I'm sure you won't mind either way! :)

    Praying for a healthy little baby!!

  15. I came here from another friend's blog and I'm so glad I did. Congrats! I'm so excited for you guys!

    I just found out a few weeks ago that I am pregnant as well (due March 4). I don't have any kids yet, but I did have a miscarriage in December, so that is constantly on my mind. I find myself comparing things and wondering about my little baby (or babies?!) since I won't have an ultrasound until the 5th of August. I've decided that I just need to enjoy each day because it is really a miracle, just like your little one (who, I am crossing my fingers for you, should be a girl).
