Bret and I were married in June, and have been trying to concieve since our wedding night. We thought it would be difficult for us so we wanted to start trying right away. (Two years ago I had to have one of my ovaries and one of my tubes removed because of a cyst that was the size of a volleyball; can you imagine! It was very scary and ever since I have been extremely concerned about my fertility...Bret was by my side every second-as he has been since we were 15 years old! We are 23 now and ready to start a family. I am a teacher and he is a software engineer.)
What a miracle when we found out last week that we had been successful. I think I have taken 6 pregnancy tests since that first one because I just can't believe it! We are 5 weeks tomorrow.
We struggled a lot with trying to figure out when to tell people. It is so hard not to. We are having both sets of parents over for dinner tonight to tell them together. I think we will wait until 8 weeks to tell friends and other family. My biggest fear is m/c, and we pray that the baby will grow strong and healthy in the coming weeks.
My first symptom before I even knew was that my breast were extremely tender. I am getting used to that, but have had a terrible headache off and on this weekend. I have just given up my beloved coffee and diet coke addiction, so that doesn't help either. I know I have to do what's best for my child now, and it will all be worth it. No nausea or morning sickness yet, thank goodness! I am so excited! I look forward to sharing more as we continue on our journey
