Due date? May 17th
How’d you find out? We’ve been trying since March or April and I took a test once my period was late.
Other children/pets? We have two boys. The oldest is 8 and the youngest is 3.
Job? Stay at home mom but I’m putting my teaching degree to use this year and started homeschooling my oldest.
Things you like to do? I enjoy spending time with my family. I also like reading but I don’t take the time to do it.
Spouse/partner? My husband and I have been married since 2008.
First appointment? I don’t have a first appointment scheduled yet. I should have that scheduled this coming week.
Any symptoms? Random cramps, occasional gaggy feeling, random tingles in my boobs, and overall stomach not feeling settled.
High risk / concerns? I’m 36 so I will be considered “advanced maternal age”. It made me happy to hear my doctor tell me at my yearly checkup that he has many moms upwards of 40 having babies and he doesn’t even bat an eye at it anymore.
I did end up with a c-section with my youngest. As much as I would love a VBAC, I think our plan will be a repeat c-section and I will get my tubes tied.
Between my two boys, I had a missed miscarriage (16 weeks) and two chemical pregnancies (both around 6-7 weeks). It was a rough few years.
To top it off, both of our boys inherited benign infantile seizures from me so the first year hasn’t been a pleasant one for us in the past. Thankfully, both boys are healthy now and have outgrown the seizures just like I did.
While I’m absolutely ready for one more baby, I’m still nervous.
