Well ladies, looks like I'm joining the 1st Trimester club! I'm Kassie, I've been married for 8 years to my awesome husband, and we have 3 kids ages 5, 4, 2 1/2.
We're living in Spain working for a non-profit here, trying hard to learn Spanish... and after my period was 8 days late, I took a test and sure enough, it was positive! It is kind of a surprise, kind of not.
I had an awful time last fall/winter with my birth control & had to go off of it. In May my husband is getting a vasectomy, so we decided to just try to trust God & see what he had for us... apparently that was kiddo #4!
We're excited, but nervous. 4 kids is a lot, and we really want to do this parenting thing well...
My first OB appointment is next Tuesday, I'll be about 6.5 weeks then. Hopefully we'll be able to see something with the ultrasound.
*I just posted this on the "Am I Pregnant" board - but I remember this one being more active. Sorry for the duplicate!
It's a long story, and I have a good reason for posting instead of calling my doctor - I recently moved to Spain and my Spanish is not good enough yet to call anyone here. [br>[br>First of all, I am/was on birth control. It's called Donabel, and it's like ortho-tri-cyclen. [br>[br>I had to get my wisdom tooth (yes, I only had one) out so I started antibiotics last Wednesday (this was at the end of my second week of pills). I think my husband and I might have "had relations" once before we remembered that bc and antibiotics don't mix. Anyway, Friday I had my tooth out and started bleeding. I had a very, very light and short period (about 4 days long, with very little bleeding) starting on Friday right after my surgery. [br>[br>But I have been feeling symptoms like pregnancy symptoms all week. Super tired, really emotional, over-sensitive breasts, constipation, cravings, heartburn, discharge...[br>[br>My husband has gone downtown to see if he can find an open pharmacy to buy a test, but I wanted to see if anyone here had advice or wisdom for me. [br>[br>Thanks!View Thread
