So very blessed! Pregnant again!
I was planning on only sharing my news after my 8 week scan, but I just can't wait!
I found out two weeks ago, on the 19th of August. It was more of a routine pregnancy test, really wasn't expecting to see a positive, especially as all the ovulation tests I had done earlier the month were negative... But yet, I got a positive!
The positive test was only on the ClearBlue digital pregnancy test - when I did a normal Clicks pregnancy test, it was negative... I was feeling quite pessimistic! However, I went for blood tests early on Tuesday, and then again on Thursday. Poor Wyn had to keep reassuring me, telling me not to stress so much, and he was being quite the optimist, shame!
When the nurse phoned on Thursday with the results, I was so sure she was going to tell me the count hadn't doubled... But, indeed, it had! Hcg levels of 36 had gone up to 87. Yay!!!
I have remained anxious, but last week decided to do another hpt to see whether my count was still going up. (The ClearBlue digital test shows a 1-2, 2-3, or 3+, which indicates how many weeks since conception, according to the levels of hcg hormone. Oooooh the relief when it said "3+"!
I am 6w1d pregnant today. So I am officially past the point when the bleeding had occurred last time.
I reckon I can stop POAS (peeing on a stick) now!
We haven't told Mia yet. Our first scan appointment is in less than 2 weeks, on the 17th of September. I think we'll wait until then before telling her.
Due date is 29th April 2013.
So far been feeling good! Bit nauseous in the evenings, and today was first time I felt a bit nauseous in the morning, but some Marmite toast fixed me. Tired - but manageable!
I feel very blessed, gosh, so lucky (and fertile!!!) to fall pregnant so soon again. This is what I wanted and hoped for. ♥
