- Wedding: December 2012
first post here! Sorry it might be a little long!
a little background: my husband and I have been together four years and married a little over six months. He has talked about wanting a baby for the past two years. I have not felt ready yet, especially because I am supposed to start nursing school in the fall. I was hoping to wait until after school and get a steady job before trying to get pregnant. I am already two years behind because my dad got really sick after my first year at school, and I came home and helped out and worked so my dad wouldn’t have to support me.
Well, I am now officially 12w6d pregnant! At first, I was so scared and upset because it kind of derails my plans for school for a little while. It took me some time to get used to the idea of having a munchkin, but I have really started to warm up to the idea. At my 8w appointment, I found out I had low progesterone and was prescribed progesterone. Since then, I have been trying not to get emotionally attached because I know the risk of miscarriage is increased with low progesterone.
Today, I had another ultrasound and the ultrasound tech couldn’t get a good view because the baby was curled up into a tight little ball. She had me move around to get the baby to wiggle around and we watched the whole time on the monitor. We could see baby stretching its legs and arms out and at one point it was turned straight towards the montior. I can’t even describe how that made me feel. I think it is about the coolest thing I have ever seen, and I couldn’t believe how emotional I was getting.
I’m having a hard time containing my excitement at work, but thanks so much for listening! I’ve already called my husband twice today to tell him how excited I am and I don’t want to wear him out just yet. Haha!
