Special Delivery from the Easter Bunny

It's very important to listen and pay attention when your body gives you signals about your health. Believe me. I know.

After going back and forth (and back and forth) in my mind, I finally decided to invest $8 in my sanity on Saturday night. I brought home my little investment and realized I had to wait until morning to use it. As you can imagine, sleep didn't come easily.

Sunday morning, I got up and tried out my investment and walked away to wait for the results. Lovie came in the living room a few minutes later and said, "well, you can quit worrying about it now" and showed me the results. I have attempted to recreate them here:

Not sure what that is? It's the result of a pregnancy test. The big blue plus sign? Yep, that's a positive. We're pregnant again!! I was surprised, but not surprised. Like I said, I kept going back and forth in my mind that there was something going on. We told our family and friends and were taking guesses at how far along I was.

With Stinkerbelle, we had been trying for a year and were watching for symptoms like hawks. We got the doctor's confirmation when I was six weeks pregnant.

I went to the doctor yesterday and he did a sonogram to take some measurements to see how far along I am. Go ahead. Take a guess.


Try 21 weeks pregnant!!! Basically, I'm already halfway done! Right now, the due date is estimated at Aug 3. I go for another ultrasound in a couple of weeks and we'll find out the sex of the baby and whether the due date needs to be adjusted.

We're slowly recovering from the shock around here. Poor Stinkerbelle. She doesn't know that her little world is about to be turned upside down.

Happy Easter!!!

I'm laughing outloud! You are the ONLY highly-educated, MBA-holding, American woman I know who would NOT know that she was pregnant until she was 21 weeks along. Amazing...

I agree the with lucky you, 19 week pregnancy comment! Glad that little Marly arrived safe and sound.
