New Hope?

So, this week has been a bit crazy. On Monday, I received some exciting, yet completely TERRIFYING news...I'm pregnant again. That's right -- Baby #4. While we were elated to find out the results, we were also both scared beyond belief. I think we still are. Instead of just getting excited and having faith that this is IT and that this baby will be healthy, I can't help but wonder...How long will we be pregnant? Will it end tomorrow? Will we have yet another crazy unexplained loss at a different point than our first three? Or.....will we have a completely normal 9 months, resulting in a healthy child? It's hard not to worry, especially when you consider our track record. I suppose all we can do is hope and pray that this baby holds on and grows like it should!

I have my first appointment with an OB scheduled for 2 weeks from today, so here's hoping all goes well between now and then, and that we continue to receive good news. I'm going to have to find some way to keep my mind occupied -- so as to avoid stressing out too much. Hum...easier said than done!
