Catch Up!


There has been so much that has been going on this last week. The most important though is I found out I was pregnant on the 12th. I hadn't even missed a period yet. But somehow I knew, I had been having super smell almost making me sick. I already had cravings for bonless BBQ chicken EVERYDAY! I took another test a few days later just to be sure and it was positive too. I have been having pain on the left side for about a week. It is the same type of pain I had when I used to develop functional cysts on my ovary. I called the Dr. Monday morning to make an appointment and was hoping they would get me in soon because I was afraid that it might be a tubal b/c of the similar pain. Well... they told me to come in asap and they would run my blood and do an ultrasound. Well the ultrasound revealed I had a Complex Cyst on my ovary but since it was early in pregnancy they couldn't see the embryo, they couldn't tell if I had a tubal in addition to the Cyst or if it was just an early pregnancy b/c my blood suggested that my hormones were low (which indicates an ectopic) but that is why they want me to come back Wednesday morning to take more blood. If my levels havn't doubled like they should then it is probably a tubal. They told me to take it easy and take off from work until after I go back on Wednesday and we'll see where we are. I have so much going on at work that I hate to take off especially since I don't have sick or vacation days to use... I have been hating my job anyways lately so if they fire me since I'm during my evaluation period I wouldn't care... (Even though we desparately need the money, I'd find something else) Or maybe I could go gungho with the photography thing....

I'll update after tomorrow after I go back to the Dr.

Yes, we were trying... We have been trying since last May when I had my IUD removed and had no luck... so when I started my new job in Nov, we quit trying and used protection because I wanted to make sure I was there long enough (1year) for FMLA when the baby came. We decided Feb. 1st to start trying again and that was the day b/c that is the only day.... I guess we did it good :)
