Pregnant

A few weeks ago we found out that I am pregnant again. We planned to get pregnant next month or later, and we thought that this particular month we were past my ovulation cycle. Apparently, it shifted by a few days, so here we are.

I am happy, but worried at the same time. After what happened last time, I fear to be fully excited. I put my emotions on back burner and just try to take it one day at a time without worrying too much. We don’t even know what the due date is yet (since my ovulation has shifted a bit) — we’ll find out this Friday, but it should be sometime around the end of September. So I am around 7-7.5 weeks pregnant right now.

For some reason I am sure that there is a little boy growing inside of me this time around. I guess, we’ll find out soon enough.

This pregnancy so far reminds me of my pregnancy with Aroshka. No morning sickness, no strange cravings. I am more tired than usual, but that’s expected. I try to nap every day while Arosha is napping, and it really gives me a big energy boost. Plus, I rarely sleep for 8 hours during the night, and right now I need at least 8 hours per 24 hour period to feel like a human being. The only strange thing that I can think of is that chocolate has change its smell to me. I love chocolate, but now it smells pretty disgusting, and I don’t even want to try it to see if the taste changed as well.

We went to see a new doctor a week ago. A girl on a playground recommended him to me, and I thought, why not. He seems to be OK. He has offices in Brooklyn and Staten Island and shares practice with his father and brother. We saw heartbeat during the ultrasound, and my heart melted just a little bit. I really really really hope that our little pea is healthy and that this pregnancy will have a happy ending.
