An Announcement That Some of You Already Know

If you follow me on twitter or read my husband's blog, you'll already know this but I figured it was about time I announce it officially since so many already know.

I'm pregnant.

This is the first time that I don't know exact dates. My cycles were still all messed up from my miscarriage. That means I was getting negative pregnancy tests after my period was due. I was really confused. Then, about five days late, I had some very light spotting which I thought was my period starting. When it still hadn't started three days after that, it occurred to me that perhaps it was implantation spotting so I tested again. Surprise, surprise! That one was positive.

So, based on last menstrual period, I'm due July 11. Based on the date of implantation bleeding, I think I'm due July 20 which puts me at 6 weeks today.

I'm not having a lot of symptoms yet. I've started to notice some mild nausea late in the evenings, a little fatigue, and extra trips to the bathroom. I'm expecting to start getting really nauseous and vomiting next week. Sometime after 7 weeks is when it started with Mika, Sammy, Josh, and Ethan. When I start getting really sick is when I feel like everything is going okay and I can relax about early miscarriage worries.

So...I'm still in the initial worry period.
