Patience is a virtue

It's been extremely hard to be patient since I found out I was pregnant.  It feels like I'm driving my power wheels and the battery is running low.
According to my LMP, I should be 7w and 4 days along today, which would make me 8 weeks this coming Saturday.  But because the heart rate was low and visibility was sparse last week during our first ultrasound, we're not exactly sure how far along I am.  I can't imagine it to be more than a week off (if that), but still the unknown is frustrating.  This pregnancy app I downloaded on my iPhone gives me daily alerts and I don't even know if PJ has made those milestones yet!
I go back a week from today (2/29) for another ultrasound, to check development and that will hopefully give us a "without a doubt" age.  I know I'll have answers next week, but I just wish time would pick up a little.
I never knew pregnancy would be this complicated.  I've already been scared and worried and I'm not even 2 months along yet....sheesh!!
I think they should have a "pregnancy" course in high school that discusses all the good and bad, ups and downs - - - that might even prevent teens from getting pregnant if they knew the real truth about it. 


  1. I would so love to teach that class haha

  2. I know exactly how you feel! I actually loved pregnancy, however it didn't love me! (i have the scars to prove it ;) ) I also have horrible patience. I will tell you though that once little pumpkin is here you will be wondering where the heck the last 9 months went!! Its funny how when you are looking forward to something time seems to move so slow, but after something happens it feels like it happened so fast!! Life. =o)
