So I wasn't really ready to announce this again but we found out on the 1st that we are expecting again. Yes, I am still in shock about this because I just stopped with the contraceptive we were using because it was making me too sick all the time and I dealt with being sick for a year. Before going to Texas we decided to have my IUD removed but faced some fear when I was told that they were unable to find it so I went in for a sonogram and they were able to locate it and at that moment I was not pregnant. We left to Texas and I stayed for a month but I got real sick not relating to pregnancy and then when I finally got over it I noticed I was really nauseated so on the 1st I took a pregnancy test thinking there is no way I am pregnant because we had been too busy with visiting family and the funeral of my uncle for us to even have time to make a baby. Well I guess I was wrong and just for the record it only takes one time to get pregnant. Who would have known that? Well I should, right? Anyways the reason for me announcing it now is because I have been in so much pain for the past week and a half. I am assuming it is because of all the traveling that has messed up my stomach but it hurts so bad. Last night my stomach hurt so bad that I was really swollen and it almost looked like I was about seven months along which is impossible because I am still in the first trimester. I was up for a long time because the pain was so strong. Finally it passed and I was able to get back to sleep. The swelling in my stomach has gone down tremendously but my stomach hurts a lot still. I am going to try and take TUMS or something like that and if it doesn't resolve my problem I am going to have to go in and find out what the problem is. Please pray for me and this unborn child.


P.S. I am not really sure how far along I am but we are assuming anywhere from 5-7 weeks and by the look of everything this baby should be here by early May but nothing has been confirmed because I have not been able to see my midwife which is why we never made a formal announcement of this pregnancy.

Congratulations! We'll be in DC for just 4 days. We evacuated and just got word that our house is fine, which is a HUGE relief!
