So.. I haven't had time to post much but, wanted to give an update after my eventful day yesterday. I woke up bleeding... mostly spotting but it was red/pink. So, i called the mid-wife and she told me to head to the ER since it was Saturday. Well, everything looked good... my hcg was like 146,000, cervix was closed and the ER doc didn't see any sign of bleeding. Had a TV u/s and there was my sweet little baby.... 8 weeks exactly and a perfect heart rate of 162 bpm! So, i'm not sure my last u/s at 6 weeks said i was like a week and a half behind but, it was right on yesterday. I'm sooo happy. I was just told to take it easy and not lift over 15 pounds ---- easier said than done since my almost 4 year old is about 34 lbs. and the baby is abou20!! but, i'll do what i can... i was just so happy to see my little baby!

maura - we've told some family and a few close friends but, we haven't really gone public yet. DH has a few family members that live out of town he needs to call before I can post on fb because i don't want them to find out on there. so.... i just got to get him on that which is easier said than done lol.
