8 Weeks!

Although I know that this post will be a little behind, I wanted to start this blog in order. So here goes.

I found out that I was pregnant on July 21st, although I had my suspicions the week before, which would have been 3 weeks along. I took three different tests within the next week or so, just to be sure it really took.

I was so relieved when I finally went to my first appointment at 8 weeks along, August 18th. Everything appeared to be going well - good heartbeat (and only one!!), good visual on ultrasound - no problems.

For those of you who don't know, I have a uterine malformation called a bicornuate uterus. It's fairly common, as far as anomalies go, but it's been a source of worry for me with this pregnancy and leading up to it. The condition does attribute to miscarriages and breech births. Some think, myself included, that it affects fertility, as well. When Ben and I first decided to start a family, we were surprised by how long it took us to conceive, especially considering the good fortune most of our families have with fertility!

My doctor has assured me that we'll treat this pregnancy as totally normal, until something pops up that would make us think otherwise. After all, I had a completely normal pregnancy with Scarlett, unless you count the breech position that led to the C-Section. Fingers crossed!
