FOUR home pregnancy tests

I missed my period October 2012. I figured it was because of the visitors (my cousin and his new wife) we had living with us. I figured it was her cycle messing with mine - and of course the stress that I've been going through. I should have my period the first week of the month, so this month when it didn't come I decided to take a test over the weekend. After talking to my sister (stay at home mother of 3 boys) on 11/05, she convinced me to stop at the DollarStore and pick up a home pregnancy test. I caved and did. Picked up FOUR, just to be safe. hehehehe It was a long day (left work about 7:30pm), hard night (Mom was feeling bad), tough evening. I ended up still wide awake at midnight. My husband was already snoring in bed. I figured, good as time as any to pee in a cup. I took the first one, and BAM! two lines. I opened a second... TWO LINES. Now my hands are shaking and I go to the bedroom to wake up the husband. He drags his feet to the bathroom, looks at the two sticks and says "just test again in the morning." Not the reaction I was hoping for. But by the morning, he was ON BOARD! He wakes me up, "come on, go pee!" Two more tests, both positive. I spent much of the day at work scheduling doctors appointments. According to my calculations, I'm due June 7, 2013. This afternoon I will go to my first doctor's appointment and hopefully he can run a blood test and let me know for sure, for sure. So excited Smile Supposedly, I'm ten weeks pregnant and my baby is the size of a strawberry.
