January 25th, 2010 ~10 weeks and 4 days pregnant and counting...

On December 17th, 2009, I found out that I was pregnant. Could it be true after 6 miscarriages in 5 years??? Well, it was confirmed with a blood test. I knew that I had to stop my Sandostatin and Diovan ASAP and call my Endocronologist.

Here I am today, full of nausea, fatigue and Acro symptoms already. My eye lids are slowly swelling, my nose is enlarging and my jaw and joints crack daily. It is all worth it though. The residual tumour will be monitored by Visual Field testing at the Optomotrist (No MRI for me) and lots of bloodwork. The baby is fine at this time. I had an early Ultrasound and the heart was beating and everything else was were it was suppose to be. My next Ultrasound is on Feb 10th.

My husband and I are still cautious but really hope that I carry through my 9 months!!!
