I will start with the hard and end with the happy... Here goes.
Three days after my last post (on February 13) I got a call from my OBGYN about the results of my lab work. When compared with the results of my previous labwork my HCG levels did not rise like they should have. She told me that I was either having a miscarriage or I had an ectopic pregnancy and wanted me to come in for an ultrasound.
I went in that afternoon and the ultrasound technician did not see a baby in my uterus or any evidence that there was a baby in my uterus so it was determined that it was an ectopic pregnancy and I began immediate treatment for that to prevent the rupture of my tube.
After 6 weeks my HCG levels were back to normal. And we have to wait a while before we can try again because of the medication I was treated with. It was a scary and rough time but I am doing better every day. I don't talk about it a lot, I will mention things about "before we found out we were pregnant" or "after we lost the baby" but I try not to dwell on it because it just makes me sad...
Now, on to a happier topic, SCHOOL!
We have started back with doing school but not structured yet. We will start a more structured curriculum in September after we get back from the beach (when she is closer to 3 years old). She loves school and asks to do it each day so we incorporate little activities into our days! It is so much fun to watch her learn new things. I'm not going to lie it is frustrating sometimes but I have to remind myself that she is 2 and she will get it and then within the next few days she does! She makes me so proud!
One of her favorite activities... Using the dot markers!
Her second favorite activity, sorting the "puffies" as she calls them.
And finally, pretending to be Mommy. Oh I love this girl to the moon and back!
