I am so nervous. Frightened to death really. I know this is suppose to be an exciting time in my life but I cannot help but worry constantly that I am going to try my luck one too many times. I should be happy with my healthy little boy. And I am, but still....
We actually were not planning on trying for quite a while. But one night DH and I were playing a game after ds had been put to bed and at the same time looked at each other and said in unison, Lets have one now!
My doctor thinks everything will be fine. He says there is no problem. My iron levels are low but not as bad as they have been and my body seems to have adapted ( I dont suffer too much from the anemia, I am pale and can get a bit run down, but I am also very active) And if it puts the pregnancy in danger I can easily get injections to help.
Even with him reassuring me, I am still scared. I just don't want to worry my husband. With the miscarriage in March, it was actually a good thing. I had been really sick with a bad flu, I was down to 98 lbs and had been extremely dehydrated. I am now at 105 lbs, perfectly healthy and on an excersize and diet plan.
So, now I get ready to dive in head first in the pool and hope things go well. Thanks for listening!
