I Think Im Pregnant

So I have been about a week late, and I totally attributed it to my diet and all the weight I’ve lost. But then after two weeks of being late, I thought, ok…..I need to take the test. I definitely knew I wasn’t pregnant, because we have taken measures to prevent that from happening so soon after Caspian was born. I just wanted piece of mind as if there’s even a one percent chance that I am, I would need to stop drinking, stop dieting, and stop doing work outs to tone my stomach.

Then I peed on the stick and sure enough, those two lines showed up. $H!T! I thought….. How on earth did this happen??? We always knew we wanted to have a third child, but so soon?? We went out of our way to make sure it wouldn’t happen this soon after Caspian was born…..and then BAM! Apparently all it takes is for me to sneeze and I’ll get pregnant.

It’s still early and I haven’t even been to the doctors yet. I’m just slowly trying to wrap my head around this. I was just now getting used to having to care for two babies. How on earth am I going to manage three??? We will be outnumbered. How would we go anywhere? Is there such a thing as triplet strollers?

I don’t want to be negative about this news though. I love babies. I love taking care of them, playing with them, cuddling with them etc. What I don’t love is pregnancy. I HATE it! I can’t think of anything I hate more. All those doctor visits, needles, needles and more needles. And the weight gain. I had just started to lose weight and get my confidence back. Now all that’s thrown out the window. Back to blowing up like a whale. I just wish I can skip these 9 months and magically have the baby appear in my arms. A girl can dream right?

My husband isn’t worried about all that though. He’s more worried about my health. Is it even safe to have three cesarean sections in a row? My uterus is just now healing from the surgery I had 4 months ago. What about uterine rupture? Pelvic pains in the third trimester? Will I have to be wheel chaired around?

Just slightly freaking out. No big deal.

So because of this, I am stopping the ketogenic diet and for now will reintroduce fruit and cereal back into my diet. I will resume the diet after one year. Unless I miscarry (but hopefully that won’t happen.)
