So I've put off writing on here for awhile now. No reasons in particular, just been really busy for the past few months. Since I was on here last, life has changed A LOT. I found out I was pregnant again in April, and got married in July. Honestly, I'm SOOOO happy right now with life. I've been blessed greatly, a lot more than I deserve. As I said, I found out in April that I'm pregnant again!! Actually, I found out April second, so my husband (fiance at the time) just thought that I was April fooling him. But I wasn't, and after a trip to the ob-gyn, I found out I was about 5 weeks pregnant. At about 13 weeks I switched back to the doctor that I was going to with Aaden ( I started out going to a doctor who was closer, but realized I felt more comfortable going to someone who I was already used to, and who knew my history with Aaden well.) They done some blood work to see if I had a protein s deficiency and a couple other things (What happened to Aaden was never really certain, and they wanted to make sure that I wasn't at risk for a blood clot, since my protein s levels had been a tad low after I had him.) The protein s came back a little low and they wanted to put me on blood thinners JUST IN CASE to be on the safe side. So, low and behold I've been giving myself LOVENOX injections in my stomach for a month now. Which, by the way, are NO fun at all, but I'd rather be on the safe side of that. I got an ultrasound scan done at 16 weeks, just to check on baby. Everything looked GREAT!! Baby was moving all around during the whole thing, but the little stinker wouldn't uncross his/her legs to let us see the gender! Now I'm 20 weeks and 4 days pregnant today! I go tomorrow for another ultrasound to try to determine the gender. That means I've already made it halfway through (duh!) I'm a little nervous, after what happened with Aaden, but Jesus has helped me through this every day, step by step. And my faith is now greater than it has EVER been! My husband has been so supportive through this whole thing. He's such a blessing to me and I've never been more in love in my entire life. It's so nice to have him here to go through this whole thing with me. When I was pregnant with Aaden, his father didn't really give much through the whole thing. And he was most definitely not supportive. So having Caleb here through this one has been a blessing in itself. He's so in love with me AND our baby. It's so sweet to watch him rub my tummy and talk to the little baby already. I've been feeling baby's kicks and wiggles for a few weeks now, and I'm thankful for every single kick and wiggle that I feel (Yes, even those kicks to the bladder that send me running for the bathroom every time!!) Caleb has even got to feel the kicks a few times, but our stubborn little monkey likes to move around so much, it's hard to catch a kick from the outside! I honestly can't Thank God enough for all that he's done and is DOING for me and my family. He has blessed us so much, and he continues to do so, even when we deserve it the least. Jesus loves us so much! I would appreciate all the prayers that may be sent my way. I've got a lot of faith and I'm trusting in Jesus throughout this pregnancy, but who couldn't use more prayers?! Also, if anyone else has been on LOVENOX during pregnancy, I would love to have some advice or even just some comments on how it worked for you!!
