Hey everyone! My name is Heather, and I just found out that I'm expecting yesterday! This is very unexpected, as DH and I thought we were being super careful and had no chance of getting pregnant. Well surprise, here I am! We have four other kids -- Hannah (9), Keira (6), Tyler (4), and Ethan (16 months).
We were "done" having kids and very happy with our family, but I guess God had other plans for us! My last pregnancy wasn't a smooth one at all, I ended up developing pre-eclampsia towards the end and had a complicated labor & delivery. I also experienced two miscarriages before that pregnancy, one of which was in the second trimester. So I am very nervous this time around, and not completely sure I'm ready for this rollercoaster ride! I'm still in a state of shock, as I had no idea that I was pregnant. But I'm excited nonetheless.
My periods have been a little irregular, so I'm not exactly sure how far along I am, but calculating from my last irregular period and factoring in symptoms, I'm guessing my EDD will be 11/9/12. Will hopefully be able to get to the doctor in a few weeks for confirmation. Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you and experiencing this journey again!
(Oh, and please excuse the outdated siggy, I haven't been on IVillage for a while, guess I need to change that!)
