Together Again

in Does this baby make me look fat?,Worlds' Goodest Teecher

My work friend C, who was also trying to concieve, has been successful! Last night around 6:45 p.m., I got a text message from her that said: I think I’m pregnant! Very faint line but def there! I was so excited I got chills.

We were pregnant together the first time, and we were both trying this summer, but we were both worried that one of us would be successful and one wouldn’t. I personally thought it would be her, since she’s ten years younger than me and only took three months to concieve her daughter. But then this cycle (which was to be her last try until next spring, because she can’t afford to take time off during the school year), she thought her timing was off and she had missed her chance. She didn’t even tell me she was going to test, but last night she was in Walmart and the tests just called out to her.

I’m praying that this goes well for both of us. I have such a hard time not worrying, especially in the beginning. I can’t believe our good fortune that this baby is planned to coincide perfectly with the school year. I keep expecting something to take that away from us. I need to hear a heartbeat, but my first prenatal appointment isn’t until the end of October. Once that happens, I’ll worry until my amnio at 16 weeks. Then I’ll worry until 24 weeks, when the baby is viable. Then I’ll worry until delivery.

I asked the Hubster what he thought about renting or buying a doppler this time, and he said, “I have a better idea; why don’t I just yell really loudly at your uterus every night?” Okay, I understand his feelings… but he didn’t have to be so sarcastic about it.
