Hi, ladies! Hope you have room here for one more. I thought I would stop in and introduce myself.
My name is Katie. I am 31 and a SAHM. This pregnancy was a total surprise to DH and me. In fact, I had a negative test at a routine doctor's appointment about three weeks prior to my positive test at home, and had just assumed that was that! My cycle is pretty irregular anyway, so between that, the fact that we were not TTC, and that negative test result, I ignored my early symptoms and lack of AF for over a week before I finally figured out what was going on. By the time I realized I was pregnant, my nausea had kicked into full swing, and the last three weeks have been kind of rough. Yesterday and today have been a bit better, though, so hopefully I have turned the corner!
I have not had my first appointment yet, but I have my dates figured out pretty well, I think, and I figure that I am due around January 4th.
My other pregnancies were very planned, and we do not typically have an easy time conceiving, so this has been such a shock to us! We are already crammed in a house that is too small and we have a car with no room for another carseat so I guess it is time to get shopping!
