Here We Go Again!

"Hi, Dr. B said to call when I was pregnant."

"And are we?"

"Yes we are!"

"Congratulations!"

"Thanks! I'm just not sure what the process is from this point"

"Is Dr. H-Y still your family Dr?"

"Yes."

"Well, you'll need to see him first for you prenatal blood work and a referral back to our office. How far along are you?"

"4 weeks, 1 day."

"And you've had 2 miscarriages, correct?"

"Yes."

"Okay, well, we'll have to get him to schedule an ultrasound for you between 7 and 8 weeks to check for viability. I know, it's a horrible word."

"Yes it is, but I understand." (said laughing)

"And then we can see you on, let's see... March 17th at 10 am. By then we'll have all the results."

"Okay."

And so went our conversation. Later, I called my GP's office and set up an appointment for 4:45 in the afternoon. I went in, sat down, and said, "Guess what? I'm Pregnant!". He smiled.

I have a requisition for my blood work, which I'll do tomorrow. The results should be in by Monday at which point we'll decide when to schedule the ultrasound.

I laughed when he made the comment, "Well hopefully third time's a charm. But you certainly don't have any issues getting pregnant."

No kidding.

Nausea and exhaustion aside, I'm feeling pretty good. It's a little surreal right now. I mean I know I am pregnant and I feel pregnant, but there's a small part of me that's somewhat unconvinced, that is still controlled by the fear. But I am excited. We both are. R is back to saying "hello" to my belly again.

It makes my heart so very happy.

Fingers crossed - hoping for best results. The fear doesn't go away, but it's totally manageable. As each week goes by, you'll feel more and more confident. Plus, the early monitoring will help. Lots of luck. I'll be thinking about you!
