LOL! You'd think I'd know by now :) I POAS this afternoon, yes I was impatient enough that I didn't wait until tomorrow morning, and saw a very very faint line. My period isn't due until the 25th, so it is really early. It is so light, I question whether it is there, and have to keep looking back to make sure it really was pos. I am SO excited! What a joy that God has blessed us with another baby to love!

Ok, now the nervous questions. I am still nursing Lia about 2-3 times a day, and have never been pg while nursing before. Any BTDT advice would be great. I will probably call my OB next week to go in and talk. I really want a home birth this time around, but unless DH is on board it will be in the hospital again for me. Praying for an uneventful full term pg this time! WOW! I'm pregnant!!!! LOL Praise God I am so blessed! Yes, I am still giddy with excitement. Ask in a few weeks when morning sickness kicks in and I'm sure I won't be quite so giddy :) I just had to share this with women who will be excited for us. I can't wait to tell DH! My birthday is Thursday, so I think I'll wait and give him the news then.

Congratulations Jennifer!!!! I am so happy for you and your family.

I love that goofy smile and giddiness that comes with a 2nd line. What a nice feeling. And what a lovely birthday gift for your dh. I found out I was pg with Brian Patrick on my last birthday. It is the most memorable gift ever. :)

Prayers and positive thoughts that you have an easy, healthy pg.

Hugs,

Congratulation! My tests are always very faint even when af is late.

I have nursed while pg every time, well except for the first. It can be hard if your nipples get sore. I am always nursing at night too and thats really hard when I am nursing and have to go pee SOOOO bad and have to wait till they are done. Typically they wean when my milk changes but last time I went all the way through and then tandemed for 8 mos. It can also be really difficult to get all the water you need when you are both nursing and pg. I tend to get dehydrated.

I hope you get your hb. There really is nothing like it.

Yay, Jennifer!!!! What wonderful news! I think there are 5 or 6 of us now who are newly pregnant- I guess they come in waves around here, lol :-) Are you hoping for a boy or girl? It looks like you have 4 boys and 3 girls, right? My little niece's name is Alex so I never know, lol. Either way, what a huge blessing! I can't wait to hear what your dh says. Mine was jumping up and down- hehe.

Congratulations, what wonderful news. I nursed twice while pregnant. I nursed my first one up to the time I was 8 months pregnant. I only stopped because I didn't want to nurse two at once and I didn't want to stop her right as soon as the baby was born so she didn't have jealousy issues. I tried to nurse another baby when I was pregnant but my milk completely dried up, so I had to bottle feed her. It is hard on your body and you get very tired. Make sure you take your vitamins so you can keep yourself healthy.
