If you guessed me, then you’re right.
As of tomorrow, I’ll be 11 weeks pregnant with Baby #5.
It all began on February 22nd, when I had a hunch to take a test….
Okay, I took a bunch of tests…Who am I kidding?
Oh, and yes. I did get a little carried away. Those weren’t all of the tests…but…I didn’t want to look too crazy…
Then, I had my first midwife appointment a few weeks later. I went for a dating ultrasound because we weren’t totally sure when I was due because of my weird cycle. I thought I was almost 7 weeks, but it looks like I was actually 7w5d pregnant at the time.
I posted the ultrasound picture above, as well as the journal entry picture on my Facebook page on April Fool’s Day. I never expected such a huge response, but there was a huge discussion thread going on, and lots of likes. It seems that about half of the folks thought I was joking, and half thought I was serious. I knew I had to follow it up! The next day, I posted this:
I’m due in early November, although it would be kind of funny to have a Halloween baby since I have a Mother’s Day kid, a birthday kid, and an anniversary kid (as well as one conceived on New Year’s. TMI?)
So far I have had one birth center birth turned C-Section, 1 uncomplicated homebirth VBAC, 1 homebirth VBAC in which I transferred to the hospital AFTERWARD due to postpartum complications, and a planned hospital VBAC with an OB. I’m planning on a hospital VBAC with a midwife this time. I guess I just have to experience it ALL, right?
I hope you don’t mind hearing about pregnancy! I kept up my pregnancy vlog last time, and I’m considering doing it again this time.
