Last week I felt pregnant after 3 months of trying, and 6 1/2 months after the death my daughter Amelia. I felt a little crampy, but not PMS, and I just felt pregnant. No test could pick it up and I was losing my mind.
All week I tested. At least once a day. Then this week I got the digital tests. I swore I saw a line, but of course, my husband wasn't going to get excited because it was so faint he couldn't tell for sure and he wanted this so bad he needed to be sure before celebrating. I even started knitting for the first time after since I lost Amelia and it felt great. It is a rainbow colored blanket, of course! And this morning I get up, expecting to see more of the same, "not pregnant" in the window of my test, but pregnant showed and I thought I could die a happy woman. After all the heartache and loss I get my rainbow baby. I hope he or she is healthy, I hope I can give this baby all it needs, but the most important thing is for the first time in a long time, I hope!
I have to call the high risk doctor and set up my appointment, and I will be testing to make sure this baby does not have trisomy 18 like his or her sister. I am so excited!
Congratulations to you!!!!!! And a very healthy & happy 9 months!
I am so sorry to hear you lost your daughter. I lost mine as well back in August of 2011.
It was absolutely heart breaking & life has just not been the same since...
We started trying in February & so this is my 3rd cycle. I can't wait to be pregnant again. I crave it SO much!
