Back Again...and Expecting

Hello readers! No you are not imagining things...I am back again. And by looking at the above picture, you can see I am pregnant! This is baby #5 and it's for sure our caboose. I'm filled with a lot of mixed feelings about ending this jounrey in my life.

I must admit that this pregnancy has found me sad and weepy a lot of the time. Sometimes I start to worry because all I can think of is how afraid I am of having a "Hailey" experience all over again. But I know I am in control and I can do things to prevent that from happening again. Recognizing the warning signs is the key, and I am doing that. Just tonight I sent my OB a lengthy email explaining some of my feelings, so we will jump on a game plan.

I'll try to go into detail about my feelings in a later post. As of now I took a Lunesta 30 minutes ago (Yes, a Lunesta. GASP!) It does happen on the rarest of ocassions. I may be an expert at this, but I am still human.

I am due the second week of April and am so excited to meet the final member of our family. My big U/S is scheduled for Nov 17th, in two weeks. Wish us luck!

Good luck with this last pregnancy and I can't wait to read the rest of your blog. My sister in law is going through much of the same things you went through so I'm anxious to read this to maybe help her get the help she needs.

Congrats! I am so happy for you

Having gone three weeks on like two hours of sleep a night I felt on the verge of losing it and had to take ambien regularly. I think your journey has also helped others realize at times it may be necessary... sleep is very important and I didn't want to end up in the hospital etc

Thanks for sharing!
