I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Wow

One baby.  Great heartbeat.  Measuring perfectly.  WOW.  I am still shaking and in shock. 
 
We are beyond excited and scared!  Very different feeling from the last pregnacy.  Definitely very appreciative but so apprehensive.  We will just take it one day at a time.  I have graduated to an OB and will be followed both by him and a Maternal and Fetal Medicine group (because I am considered high risk).  My first appointment is next Weds and hopefully we'll get a better idea of how appointments and all will go throughout.  I'm glad to be followed so closely, so hopefully we can bring this baby home with us in about 7-ish months.  NO SOONER!!!
