Lucky number SEVEN!

Number seven. Seven. SEVEN!?! It seems surreal at times. We got married and planned on four. AT THE MOST.

Who would have ever imagined we'd have seven children? With no plans of stopping? It's been an amazing experience and our expectations are that it will only improve.

I'm hoping to document this pregnancy every step of the way.

We found out we were pregnant on Tuesday, January 4th. Today I am five weeks and four days. Not very far along at all. I usually feel pregnant by now. But I've yet to feel anything. I have no symptoms and that scares me.

I've miscarried before. It's not fun. The unknown is hard to handle sometimes.

I went to the Doctor on Friday to have my HCG levels checked. I got the results yesterday and also had another level check. I was five weeks on Friday and the level was 7075. That's a good number. If yesterdays was close to doubling then everything should be OK. I've had some spotting and some cramping so I don't think I'll stop worrying until I've had an ultra sound.

I'm feeling a bit more "yucky" today. As bad as I hate it, it's a welcome feeling.
It's usually a good sign.

I'm excited about keeping this journal of my pregnancy. Here's hoping the next 35 weeks are productive ones!!!


  1. I'm so happy that all is well so far! I'm rooting for you and your precious family. Great new blog. :)
