I'm writing this entry on Thanksgiving Day (8W4D pregnant) and this year, as with every other, I have so much to be thankful for. I have been blessed with 5 of my own beautiful children (Justin - who will be 14 in January, Karah - 12 1/2, Kalissa -7 next month, Ahleeya 3 1/2 and Kasey - 13 months) and a lovely step-daughter (Alexandria - 11 1/2).

I have a great career as a Recruiting Executive for an IT Solutions Integrator, a faithful partner, a place to call home and money in the bank. This year I have one more thing to be thankful for; my sixth child enwomb with NO MORNING SICKNESS! How I've been blessed six times over to avoid the rath of that evil symptom that lurks upon so many women I don't know, but I have definitely added that to my thankful list today as I gorged myself on Thanksgiving fair.

Of course the absence of morning sickness is not the only symptom I am lacking; actually I'm lacking them all. If it weren't for the fact that pregnancy test read positive, I would never know I'm expecting again. I usually at least have fatigue and frequent urination by now and with my girls, very sore breasts from day one (that one escaped me with my two boys). This time I have nada.

At first I admit I was concerned. I had four losses between my 2nd and 3rd child. Two of my losses were miscarriages (a blighted ovum and a loss at 10 ? weeks) and two were ectopic (one in each tube). The ectopic in my right fallopian tube ruptured and resulted in a loss of that tube. So with my history, there is a chance that this pregnancy might not be viable, but I refuse to let myself think about it. I have a very peaceful feeling and amazingly I'm not concerned. Maybe it's mother's instinct, maybe it's the fact I've done this so many times that I know every pregnancy is different. I'm not sure. I just feel that everything is ok.

My OB/GYN practice doesn't usually do an early U/S unless you are unsure of your LMP date or your HCG levels are not inline with the expected. I'm sure of my dates (I know exactly when I conceived) and my HCG levels that were tested twice one week apart were normal (though very low the first time). However, at my first prenatal visit at the midwife scheduled for me for an U/S on 12/3. With my history of loss, they watch me very closely and I'm honestly glad to get such good care.

I love my practice. There are 3 midwives and 2 OBs. I chose it when I found out that I was pregnant with my fourth child after delivering my first three with two different OB's. I wanted to try a delivery with a midwife, but it was very important that I also had access to an OB as I have a history of preterm labor and polyhydramnios so I am considered high risk. I definitely have not been disappointed. This practice is everything that I hoped for. I receive excellent care and my last two deliveries were with the most fantastic midwife ever. She knew me better than I knew myself and was just the most intuitive and supportive person throughout everything.

Sadly enough, though she is still with the practice, my fantastic midwife is no longer doing deliveries. I about cried when the other midwife relayed this information to me at my first visit. I'm sure the other two midwives are great (they are both new) but there is just something about having someone you trust who knows you so well. I also had a semi-complicated delivery with my last baby (he was malpositioned and large) and my midwife is aware of all of this and was prepared to watch me closely this time to make sure this baby didn't get too big. I just have to tell myself that the new midwives will get to know me too and I will get as good of care from them as she gave (I hope!). Besides, my favorite midwife is still with the practice and I can see her for my prenatal visits towards the end of the pregnancy for her to watch me just like she promised. Things always seem to work out in the end for me; I'm sure this time will be no different. PregnancyAndBaby.com
