In other News

As you may recall I had made a New Years Resolution, at the beginning of the new year. That goal, was not only to get pregnant, but to have a baby, this year. I think I should have just made the goal to get pregnant, thinking back on it. I wanted to be healthy, and know what to expect, other than a baby. In March I found out I am prediabetic, so I joined the gym in April, and was trying to be religious about going. I was doing well, at least until I got sick with the stomach flu. That was the second week in May, and after three days of the yuckies, I still wasnt feeling well so I went to see the Doc. I was having quite a bit of stomach pain and The Doc ordered an ultrasound on my abdomen. I found out the cause of all the pain was from Gallstones! That made sense, and surgery seemed to be the only option, but from my research there were some symptoms that I was having that were not common for Gallstones. A few days later, I was out with my Mom and Sister and decided to stop and get a pregnancy test. My Sister decided I should take one at her house to see. I did and I am!! Great News! BUT, now what? Still in pain...

I talked to my Doc, and they said they can still do the surgery, but I need to see a Surgeon. The Surgeon said in the second trimester. My OB said between 12 and 24 weeks and had determined I was about 8 weeks.

Side note: My due date is Dec. 25th, Christmas Day! But We'll see. Due dates are subject to change.

I have my first ultrasound next friday, so we'll see if it changes any, if it does then that will extend the waiting period to get the gallbladder out.

Piece of advice: never say "How could it get any worse" in any situation, because it can, and it will. I'm proof of that!

Oh wow, Congratulations, and Condolences at the same time! A friend of mine had kidney stones while she was pregnant, yucky stuff. I hate to even have dental work done when I'm pregnant. Good luck!

Congrats you guys! I am so excited for you. As for the gallstones, I got those after Ariana, not a fun thing to go through when you are pregnant. I will tell you though I didn't get surgery I did an all natural cleanse, which usually I think are kind of bogus, but it seemed to work. If you want to look into it let me know I still have the information. Hang in there sweet girl we will be praying for you:)
