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… 😉
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! 💕 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. 😊
