When it rains, it pours… and I’m posting twice in the same day after a 4-month hiatus. I figured now is as good a time as any since the news will be traveling down the good ol’ grapevine pretty soon…
Although we are super-excited that we’ll be adding a rainbow baby boy to our ranks this year, we haven’t been eager to share the pregnancy news because of last time. The first three months were anxiety-ridden and each day seemed like an eternity, wondering if I would miscarry again. I breathed a sigh of relief when I got past twelve weeks… then thirteen… fourteen.
Because I’m Rh-negative, all my pregnancies are high-risk and I need to see a specialist, in addition to my regular prenatal appointments. I had my first specialist appointment this week and everything looks great, so even though I know something could happen at anytime, it’s a relief to know that – at almost 20 weeks – medical intervention is possible at this stage.
I’m trying to take it one day at a time, enjoy the kicks that are becoming stronger and more consistent, and avoid the scale at all costs. Wish me luck!
