Thoughts and Happenings

Thoughts & Happenings 06/09/17

My hCG levels from yesterday were almost triple what they’d been on Tuesday!! They went from 4,833 to 12,771 in forty-eight hours. 😊

This is fantastic news as it means the pregnancy appears to be progressing normally!

Some thoughts on this day at which point I’ve known about baby #5 for a little over twenty-four hours…

I honestly didn’t want to be pregnant a few months ago. I just wasn’t ready yet. We should have been using birth control but I guess I didn’t realize that I wasn’t ready. When the possibility of it came up, I found that I didn’t like the idea of having to experience pregnancy symptoms again so soon. That being said, I would have whole heartedly embraced being pregnant if it had been time.

But now! I am now soooo happy to be expecting again! I’m only a little concerned about a few things, but all I can do is take care of myself and leave the rest in God’s hands. ^_^ I truly hope that our fifth and final baby is on his or her way!

I just turned thirty-seven last week so I’ll be considered advanced maternal age again but I’m healthy so… πŸ˜‰

It’s funny, only about an hour after I found out yesterday, I startled at the thought that I’ll have to choose between having a repeat c-section or a VBAC. I mean, I knew this before but all of a sudden it’s real. lol

I’m really excited, we’ll be telling the kids tonight! πŸ’• So, shhhh, please don’t say anything to my daughter, Maggie, yet!

I’ll be back next Thursday to share how the next ultrasound goes. Thank you for praying and for supporting me, ladies. 😊

    1. Thank you!! We are so excited! 😊 I’m not loving the symptoms that have started this week (lol) but I’m thankful for what they hopefully mean. πŸ’•

      1. Oh I know so much what you mean – I had kind of a rough first 15/16 weeks of feeling miserable. Not fun, but so worth it right? 😊 I hope you feel better and will keeping praying! πŸ’•
