Announcement


So, I realized I haven't officially announced my pregnancy here on my blog, so.....

I'm pregnant :)

I announced it on facebook a while ago, but I figured if you don't have a FB you might not know.

Today is a day of mixed emotions. Today is the due date of this baby. It would be much more difficult to deal with, I think, if I wasn't pregnant again.

I lost the first baby back in July, and was able to conceive again in October - as quickly as possible, according to my doctor. After a couple of bleeding scares and an emergency ultrasound back in November, things are going much more smoothly now. I am currently about 19 weeks, and next week we find out the gender of the baby.

To be honest, I am very excited to find out whether we will be expecting a boy or a girl, but I am also worried that they will find something wrong at that appointment. Last week I taught my biology students about genetic disorders, and ever since then I have had all of those swimming around in my mind.

Kleinfelters?

Downs?

Turners?

Cri-du-chat?

The possibilities are endless! Ah!

I know I must have faith that all will work out for our good.... I do really believe that. I just think about the worst possible scenario I guess...

This is a picture of me at about 16 weeks. I have more pictures, I just haven't uploaded them yet....but I will! My baby bump is definitely more obvious now.


Stay tuned for more updates!

I'm so excited for you! No worries, that first initial blood test they do rules out most of the genetic disorders. But I understand, I'm still worried that something will go wrong even though the doctor says everything is perfect at every appointment. It's just our motherly nature to worry I guess. Can't wait to find out what you're having!
