So why am I soooo excited...I think I'm pregnant! Now I can't be sure yet but I seem to be experiencing some of the same things I did with my first pregnancy. I am three days away from when my cycle should start again and I have been having very sensitive breasts with sharp, shooting sensations. I have felt so tired in the evening...like run over by a Mach truck tired...for the last three nights. Even more interesting is the feeling of euphoria...it's like I'm on something really good... I took a home pregnancy test yesterday but it read negative. It's possible I'm not pregnant, but it may also be my Hcg levels aren't high enough yet to detect with a home test. So I am going to have a blood test on Wednesday. Please say a prayer for me.
I do want to say that deciding to have the band has made a huge difference in my opportunity to add to our family. Losing 50 lbs has improved my chances of having a second child at nearly forty years old by least ten fold. Working with the band and making positive lifestyle changes, has made a dramatic difference in my life. I know that this next pregnancy (hopefully I'm already there) will be so incredibly amazing because I took the time and care to look after myself. If anyone else out there is pregnant or trying to get pregnant, I would love to hear your thoughts. I would love to hear your comments even if your not...lol.
