 Pregnancy Ticker

And then there were four....

On December 5th I went into the ER. I was having severe pains in my stomach. I was diagnosed with Ovary Torsion. I went in for Surgery the next day. They gave me a blood pregnancy test and it came back negative.

On December 21st, I was still ridiculously nauseated, i could smell things from a mile away, and I was losing weight. This to me...could only mean one thing. I took a jaunt down to the grocery store    on my lunch break and bought a pregnancy test. I was going to wait...but i couldn't. I slipped into the bathroom and took the test. BAM! Instantly POSITIVE! I freaked. i had a perma-smile the rest of the day. Although being pregnant this soon after Mina is dangerous, having surgery while being 4 weeks pregnant and not knowing about it is dangerous, and being deathly ill for the next 5 months is not fun. A baby is a blessing. And that makes me happy. I didn't have a miscarriage, i didn't have  an ectopic, and I got pregnant on one Fallopian tube and a torsed ovary. That my friends is a friggin miracle in my book.

This baby was originally due August 8th, then August 20, then September 24th (the docs were confused by my surgery, and didn't want to do an ultrasound too early.)

The baby is officially due AUGUST 16th , 2013. 4 days before Josie's birthday. Which is rad.

Mina i feel may not like this baby at first,she loves being the center of attention, but as time moves i hope that they are besties!!

Well that is our awesome news. I wish all my friends their own miracles, dreams, and wishes.
