Yes, you read that right…I am having another baby…a little bit of a surprise but we are excited. So this post might be a little TMI but hey, it’s life….
So to rewind a little bit…After some complications with my IUD & the cyst, my doctor and I decided to remove the IUD, back in May as my body was really going through a rough time. She wanted me to have a solid three months without any types of birth control (besides condoms) because she thought I might’ve developed some things from the complication with the IUD. She also pretty much told me that it’d take a SUPER long time to even have a baby right now because my body is so OFF….(TMI time).
I was traveling the first week in August and when I got home, we had a little “slip” if you know what I mean…;) We didn’t think anything of it as again, I’ve had some problems which gave the doctor sure signs that I couldn’t become pregnant but than again, we should’ve been careful even though we were careful every other time. Well August went on and I did what I was always doing, eating well, working out and having an occasional adult beverage. In the beginning of September, I kept checking the calendar thinking ok, any day now. but the days just kept going on without a visit from a certain “someone”.
I noticed in the middle of September, I started getting flu-like symptoms and couldn’t understand why I was feeling SO tired all the time. One Saturday while Bob was working and Keely was at my parents (September 20th to be exact), I decided to pick up a digital pregnancy test from Target. While I was unloading my groceries, I took the test, continued to unload (waiting three minutes) then before taking Hank out, checked the test to see in bold letters – PREGNANT.
I was dumb-founded! I did a double take, looked at my dog and thought this can’t be right. I took him out then proceeded to take another test which of course came back with test error. Feeling unsure, I cleaned my house, ate pizza then picked up Bob from work around midnight. When he got into the car, I handed him the test and said, “Got something for you.” He looked at it and said, NO. Are you serious? Yes, sir, couldn’t be more serious. I ended up going to CVS on the way home to pick up another test because I really needed to make sure it’s true.
After taking five more tests saying pregnant with all of them, it finally sunk in that YES, I am pregnant. We weren’t planning to have another one right now but we are totally stocked about Keely becoming a big sister and very excited to welcome peanuts #2 into the family. We told her that Sunday night that she is going to be a big sister and she proceeded to get her baby doll and hold it and tell her that she loved her. I think she will be an amazing big sister and little helper.
I scheduled an appointment with my doctor for October 2nd to really get the confirmation. I know the second pregnancy is always different and let me tell I can already tell it’s going to be different…hello to all day sickness and needing to sleep ALL THE TIME! I’ll give you the rest of the deets in a few days so I can talk about food, fitness and etc. Have an awesome day. Cheers! XOXO
