Very Planned Baby #1
I'm Rachel, 25, and DH is Jason, 25. We have been together for 6 1/2 years, married for 1 1/2 years. The only child we have is our 2 yr old Dacsle, part dacsun part beagle. I am currently searching for a full-time job while DH is a Latin teacher for a prep school. This was a very planned pregnancy since I stopped Birth control in May, we decided we wanted a summer baby so DH will have the time off to help and started TTC in September. Even though I lost my job in September we decided that we did not want to wait to start our family and things will workout. So I started charting, DTD, checking temp and reading every pregnancy book known to woman.
11/15/2011- I expected to wake up, put a pad on and go back to sleep, but found no blood, so instead I peed on that addictive stick and saw those two pink lines...and left it on the counter for DH to find when he got out of the shower...we were both Excited and unbelieving.
11/19/2011- Told our parents they are going to have a grandbaby, 1st grandbaby for DH's family, 6th for mine.
12/17/2011- Told my other immediate family via Skype and they are extremely happy and excited.
12/13/2011- 7weeks 4days, got our first US and saw the HB, 149, now we starting to believe there is something growing inside me..well there's the HB and the nausea that lasts all day for the last couple weeks and lasted until about week 10.
12/18/2011- Told rest of DH's family at his grandpa's bday party, we had the best gift...his grandparents were elated for us and can't wait for their first great grandbaby.
12/25/2011- Told the rest of the family via Sype and at DH's parents house...it gets more real the more people we tell.
1/17/2012- Had 2nd dr appt and got to hear the HB at 150...still can't believe there is a human growing inside of me, but it seems to be doing well, and the nausea has finally cut down to only when I think of certain foods, not all day.
1/18/2012- DH told his boss who added our new addition to the faculty meeting's agenda...a copy is going in the baby book!
