I'm pregnant with baby #2 and I'm starting to think I'm either crazy or further along in my pregnancy than I originally thought.
We started trying to get pregnant in November. In December I had some spotting a week or two before my period which never happens to me normally. I thought it might be implantation bleeding so on 1/1 I tested first thing in the morning. It was negative and then later that day I started my period which was a bit heavier than I'm used to but otherwise normal. Never bothered to test again because of the period. Throughout the month of January there were a couple of things (getting dizzy when I stand up and breast tenderness) which made me a little suspicious but I just thought I was imagining it.
Tested again on 1/30 and received a positive pregnancy test. That would make me 13 weeks this week. However, I swear I've been feeling baby movement at night for the past week. It's not something I notice during the day but when I'm laying in bed and everything's quiet I can feel little sporadic movements in my lower abdomen. Then today I *swear* I put my hand on my lower abdomen and felt a bump. Am I going insane or is this possible?
Is it possible that maybe I actually was pregnant in January and maybe miscarried a twin or something? I've had one appointment with the midwife so far and they did find a heartbeat but that's about all they did. We haven't had any ultrasounds yet because of insurance/financial reasons and didn't think it was necessary because I knew when my last monthly period was.
