I have been biting my tongue and sitting on this for so long, it’s time. Time to come clean and put it out there. The secret is out!
After the storm, rainbows appear.
It is with excitement and caution that I write this post. About 11 1/2 weeks ago, right around the time I was about to go to Detroit for NAIAS, something miraculous happened.
A psychics prediction came true…almost
“You will either find out in September or give birth in September 2016 and it will be a girl”
So we are expecting our rainbow, baby #5 in September. We don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl yet and we won’t be finding out for at least another 7-9 weeks or so. Honestly, after everything we have endured the last year, my only wish is that this baby is healthy, boy or girl.
I have been followed closely by a really great fertility specialist at a really amazing clinic The Reproductive Care Centre in Mississauga. It was by far the best experience I have ever had in a clinic and I would recommend them to anyone who needs to see a fertility specialist as the care was most definitely first rate. My doctor was so amazing and understanding and helped ease my fears by offering multiple ultrasounds over the last 11 weeks as well as monitoring my HCG. I sadly (and happily) now move on to the next phase and will be seeing my midwife for the first time next week. I am so thankful to make it this far and feeling very blessed.
Now the truth. This pregnancy is kicking my a$$. I have been so sick and exhausted that I have barely had the energy to keep up with my day-to-day stuff and the other kids let alone writing on the blog. So this folks is the real reason I have been taking the time because honestly I just don’t have the energy for it all. I am sure my age is playing into as well as already having 4 kids to take care of. I am feeling so excited to finally share the news with you all and I hope that you will follow along with us as we welcome baby #5 into the fold. I will tell you that this pregnancy, after our loss, has been hard. It’s been hard for me not to worry or check every time I wipe. It has been a very stressful 11 1/2 weeks as the fear of losing this one was so great and has been on my mind daily. Today though I breath a sigh of relief, our little rainbow is perfect and everything is doing good in there. 9 more weeks and we will find out if we are having a girl or a boy and I am excited to start enjoying what will most definitely be my last pregnancy and baby. Stick around, there are 6 months of fun to be had!
