Trying to keep it together

Today is a big day. Warren is taking his listening DLPT as I type this. Tomorrow is Reading, and next Monday is his OPI. I know he will do just fine, I just feel for him. He and I have both been in this situation before, it's definitely not the easiest of times. He has really kept it together this time, I'm so proud of how well he has done. I don't have any worries about his test, and he seems confident as well.
The biggest thing I am worried about today is my blood test. I get my results back today from my doctor. She wants to check my HCG levels. The doctor is trying to rule out if it's an ectopic pregnancy. I am supposed to be going into my 8th week, but on the ultrasound it only showed up as a 4 week pregnancy. So, it really had me worried.

And one more equals four..

Yes..we are in the process of becoming the Mulcahy's, a family of four. I am now 7 weeks and a few days along, may actually be a little more, but not too sure. My first ob appointment is next Friday. So, we will hopefully know more shortly after that.
My ob while still in Monterey is the same one I was going to when I was pregnant with Shannon. It's kind of sad because we leave Monterey in less than a month. So, I will only have one appointment with her. Too bad she can't fly out to Utah to deliver this baby..
On the topic of moving, husband takes his DLPT on the 23rd and 24th. And his graduation is the 9th of October. Needless to say, it's going to be a very busy next few weeks. I actually think I'm holding it together pretty good. Warren is overly stressed preparing for the big test.
Back to the pregnancy...
No one warned me it hurts and aches more with the second pregnancy. I feel like I constantly have a pulled muscle in my lower abdomen. Luckily, no cramping or anything like that, just achiness. I don't remember being this tired either. If I don't sleep 7-8 hours a night, with a cat nap during the day, I feel like I am practically worthless.
