Trying not get too excited...

Postby sarahkm » Thu Nov 24, 2011 09:38 pm

Hi there,

So my period is about 2 days late and I am praying that this is it! It would be such good timing. I'm having some of the typical PMS symptoms (sore breasts, mild cramping) but I'm wondering if this is it because I usually am very regular with my periods
I was laid off 2 weeks ago and am currently visiting family in CO without my husband, so I don't want to take a test until I'm back home. I'll be home Monday afternoon. I say it would be really good timing since I'll have a definite reason not to stress about looking for another job right away. It is going to be financially tight, but we'll find a way.

More later....Sarah

Test was positive! First appointment set for next week!
I'm trying to figure out how and when to tell everyone...probably around Christmas when we see them!
Currently on 12.5mg Metoprolol daily, LDA, vitamins. Probably will be put on Lovenox and large amount of Folic acid.
