On Thanksgiving Day I went to the grocery store
to pick up a few items and walked by the meat department...
I almost passed out from the smell,
so curious little ol' me decided to purchase
and take one of these bad boys.
Imagine my surprise with the word NOT
did not appear in front of the word PREGNANT!
I screamed, I cried, I yelled.
Mr. Sergeant thought that one of the camel crickets
that Maryland seems to have an abundance of had wandered into the bathroom.
(I'm terrified of them and will usually scream if I run up on one)
So try to imagine his surprise when he finds out the real reason for my screams.
A mere 6 months after giving birth to Baby Ro,
I find myself "knocked up" again.
Don't believe that breastfeeding hype,
don't believe those damn charts.
I'm living breathing proof that they don't work. LOL
Well, not always.
Fast forward to Saturday after Thanksgiving.
I win a lucky trip the ER
after having heart palpitations and shortness of breath.
Blood work done, Congratulations!I am indeed pregnant and about 7 weeks along...
Cue more testing, my HcG levels are 89,
for someone of my gestation the levels should be somewhere in the thousands.
I have to get my levels checked again,
but so far every doctor I've spoken with has said this is not a viable pregnancy
and to expect things to happen within a few days or so.
It's been 3 days and nothing is happening.
So, this is where I am.
I'm went from shocked
Well, I don't know exactly what I'm feeling.
I can't quite pinpoint it.
Numb really, I guess.
I just needed to talk about it
because I have not been talking about it.
you can only talk about it so much with a significant other
who is out fighting the good fight
many miles, many many miles away.
I don't want to be Debbie Downer
when I get to talk to him,
so I put on a good face and
try to be upbeat in lieu of all that's going on.
I wasn't sure about writing this post.
I went back and forth about it.
So here it is.
It's out there now.
This is what's happening.
This is where I'm at
Prayers and Positive Thoughts
Lots of Love,
