Oh YES...

Sorry, for the delay...unfortunately I have been at work  all day. 

So, my Wordless Wednesday meant exactly what you think it meant.  Yes, we are expecting a new little one...Baby H as we have been calling him/her.  And theres quite an interesting story behind this pregnancy... In fact just 5 days ago I didn't even know I was pregnant. Seriously!!! And, yesterday not only did I see Baby H but I heard his/her heartbeat.  Wow, what a whirl wind.  We are beyond excited. 

So, now for the interesting part...for the last month or so I haven't felt the best but had just passed it off as the heat (which is usually 100+ every day), from working extra, or that I was coming down with something.  And frankly with vacation's and planning Maddox's BIG ONE I just haven't taken the time to think about it.  So, this past Saturday I had woke up around 3 AM with a UTI, so I headed to the doctor as soon as they opened for antibiotics.  But, when I got home I thought...well I'll just take a test to be safe...and well sure enough!!!!

With our history of infertility and the fact that drugs upon drugs (remeber this post) wouldn't even cause me to ovulate we just never thought it would be this easy.  We had tried 16 months, with 12+ of that being fertility treatments with Maddox.  In fact I had already scheduled an appointment for September to restart my Metformin for my PCOS.  After stopping nursing at the beginning of April, I had my first & ONLY cycle at the end of April.  Once again didn't think much about that because of my history of PCOS & irregular cycles being my norm. 

I had recently been stressing about the fact that Maddox could very possibly be an only child and that I might not ever be pregnant again.  We had already faced the realization that we'd probably need to go back to the reproductive endocrinologist.  We definitely knew that we wanted more! 

And, for an even more interesting part to the story, the hubs, has been thinking I was pregnant for the last couple of months.  He says he just had that "feeling".  Plus, he swore that he had my morning sickness last month... He had even told his dad and my mom.  Hmmm, I kept passing him off saying YOU'RE WRONG.  Hehe, guess he was right. 

So, yes we're very excited to say that WE'RE EXPECTING, AGAIN!!! As of yesterday I was 8 wks, 3 days.  Baby H's heartbeat was nice and strong at 174 bpm.  And our due date is set for March 6th 2011.
