What a year! I've taken a big break from blogging for a lot of personal reasons. I usually stick to just school topics but I wanted to share a few things. First, I got married! Dave and I have been together 10 years this July and we've been engaged for 6 years...yup 6 years! We are not center of attention people and we are terrible dancers...traditional weddings were not for us! We ended up doing a small wedding with about 17 people and went to dinner after in a private room in a nice restaurant. It was no stress and perfect for us! I would have pictures to post but my photographer/best friends computer was destroyed when lightning struck his house so I have to wait until he gets the computer fixed and re-edits all the pictures.
The next big news is we are having a baby!!
It has been a rough road. I got pregnant in February and miscarried in March. We accidentally got pregnant again in April. My hormone levels were very low and the doctor didn't think the baby would make it. I started taking Progesterone pills twice a day and my levels went up. To check your levels, you have to do blood work every 48 hours...it is extremely stressful waiting to see if my numbers were doubling. Then I started getting all the symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy so I had an emergency ultrasound. They could see the gestational sac so all was good. THEN I started bleeding which is terrifying for anyone but especially someone who just had a miscarriage. I went in for another emergency ultrasound. They found Subchorionic Hematomas...a fancy word for clots of blood in your uterus. The clots can move up and separate the placenta from the wall causing miscarriage so I was told I could go to work and come home to lay down. During all of this, I couldn't even begin to think about blogging! I had my first regular appointment the day after school ended and we saw the baby flipping around and the blood clots are gone! So hopefully I'm in the clear now and I can stop worrying all the time....well that last part isn't true, I'll always worry.
This has been my motto for the last few months.
Thankfully, now that I am less worried about the baby, I am starting to think about school and blogging again! I can't wait to start sharing about some of my experiences over the last year! Stay tuned :)
