The hubs and I are expecting!!
We are due in July! We are beyond excited and cannot wait to meet our little one
So why have I been asking for all your prayers? Well let me explain. We found out we were pregnant the weekend before thanksgiving. I immediately made a dr's apt for that Tuesday since my Primary Care Manager is off post and I needed to go through her to get an ob/gyn referral. When I went in for that apt to confirm the pregnancy the urine test was faint and when I told my dr I had some mild abdominal pain she immediately told me that most first pregnancies end in miscarriages and that it sounded like I had an ectopic pregnancy and she needed to order an ultrasound to confirm it. Well the ultrasound was scheduled for two weeks later. I was a wreck. Two weeks to wait and see, two weeks to get our hopes up to possibly have them dashed. It didn't help that two of my closest friends found out we were pregnant around the same time and both miscarried. So I was a mess. Luckily God intervened and I got an earlier ultrasound apt. There I got to see the little sac, no baby since baby was only measuring at 4 weeks and I was told that to see only the sac was normal. So after the radiologist and my dr confirmed that it was not an ectopic pregnancy and everything was normal my dr put in my ob referral. I luckily got referred to the hospital on post. I called to make my first apt only to be told that my referral wasn't for an ob, it was for a delayed menstrual disorder so they couldn't see me. So it took over a week to get the correct referral admitted. I guess they had a temp working in the referral dept and she had messed up all the referrals. Luckily last week my correct referral was submitted and I have our first apt schedule for Dec 10th. I cannot wait for that.
We are officially 8 weeks along and while I know that's still early I couldn't wait to share the news. So there you have it! Thanks for all your prayers and support. I continue to pray that baby is healthy and developing right on track!
