I called my OB's office to let them know that I had a positive pregnancy test a few weeks ago, and when the receptionist saw that I just had my postpartum checkup in July she sounded concerned and said she would have the nurse call me back. After a long wait the nurse called me and let me know that they needed to test out my HCG (Human chorionic gonadoropin) levels. The further you progress in your pregnancy the higher these levels get. So I dropped Dylan off at Patty's office and went to the labs where they drew my blood. Hopefully I will hear the results tomorrow. If the results are high enough, probably over 1,000, they will do an ultrasound.

I really wasn't worried about this pregnancy until today. We wanted our children to be close in age, and I am in love with the idea of how good of friends these two children will be. But the concern of the nurse, made me a little nervous about everything. A part of me feels selffish for getting pregnant again so soon and possibily putting my health at risk, but I also feel like I have so much love to give and this is what I was meant to do with my life. I hope everything turns out fine, I will update with results soon.
