Announcement Day!

Happy Labor Day! This is the day I'm officially announcing that.....I'm 13 weeks pregnant and into my second trimester! Really, today!

Now, for the real "I'm pregnant" post, that I wrote the day I found out.

Hello. Today is Wednesday June 29th, and today I found out that I am pregnant again.

Let me explain. My period has been going for maybe 5 months? I've forgotten at this point. I knew I could theoretically get pregnant, and that was a good thing. Eric and I wanted our kids to be spaced about 18 months apart! So that would put me at having one more period before finding out I was pregnant at the beginning of august.

My last period started June 6th. That means it's been 23 days. That's really quick to find out you're pregnant again. We weren't trying, but we weren't exactly not trying either. Why did I bother testing today, so close to my last period? I just had a feeling yesterday. First it started with me wanting TONS of fruit over the last two days, something prominent at the beginning of my last pregnancy. Then last night I thought "oh man, my skin is bad. Am I pregnant? I'll pee on a stick in the morning", but I didn't really do any math, I just had a feeling.

What's my reaction? Well, my literal first words to my husband were "Oh F*ck, I'm pregnant again." I mean, it's only one month early, why am I so bothered? I'm not really, I'm just scared. I'm also sad because it means I'll be 4.5 months pregnant at my friend's wedding in October, where I'm a bridesmaid. Who knows what that dress will look like now!

But I'm logged into baby center again, and the due date is sometime early march. Based on my last period, it's March 11th, the same day as original due date with my first miscarried baby. However, since I found out that I'm pregnant 23 days into my cycle, I imagine the date will be probably a week earlier than that in March. I'll update after seeing my OB and getting an estimate based on the size of the baby.

It's also worth noting that I miscarried after about 3 weeks for both my miscarriages. So for now, I'm keeping quiet, to maybe everyone? Haven't decided. Not telling anyone besides Eric today anyway.
