So I had a journal going for a little while in the TTC side and we found out that we are pregnant just last week!!!! I did a HPT on CD27 and what do you know...BFP!!! It was a test from a box that my mom had brought with her once when she came to visit as a good luck charm. I hadn't used them yet and thought why not try it? I guess it really was good luck! Thanks mom!
I still did not believe it was true...so I searched around the bathroom for another test of another brand and drank a few bottles of water and waited a couple hours. AGAIN a BFP!!! I had waited until DH was in the shower to take the test in the other bathroom and when I saw the 2nd BFP I ran into our office and did a little happy dance and tried not to scream! I could NOT believe I really finally got prego!! We had been trying since December last year.
I waited until we got to the apple farm that we were going to to tell him. I had a card and a cute I LOVE DADDY onesie that I got for him months ago just for this day.
When he opened the card he said "Shut up! Really????" He was so excited. We immediately decided to call my mom and tell her. She of course was super stoked too!
So that is my special day! I am going to try to keep this journal of my symptoms and such. So here goes what I have so far...
*I am currently 5 weeks and 1 day*
-tired, fall asleep by 10pm at the verrrry latest. Feel like doing nothing but sit on the couch after work. zZzZzZzZz...
-go from content to STARVING within seconds, and feel sick to my stomach when I am at the starving point. Learned to start carrying around some goldfish crackers or something just in case.
-white discharge (today I started getting lots of it and its real white...sorry if TMI)
-slight headaches towards the end of the work day sometimes
-very very mild cramps
-abdomen and lower area feels sort of tight today
hmmmm I think that is it....
First appt with doctor is Nov 2nd for lab work, then Nov 6th for u/s and pap! WOOHOO can't wait!!!!!!
Ok all...post more tomorrow!
