So this is my story of the next 9 months! My husband and I have been "talking" about starting our family for a couple of months now. We realized that we weren't probably going to ever be willing to say that we're ready (financial conerns, being independent etc...), but we both knew that this is a good time in our lives to have a baby. We've been married 3 years, and have bought our first house, so why not now?!
I realized 3 days ago that I should be seeing AF anytime. So I went ahead and took a First Response which was positive, but I couldn't believe it! I said a quick prayer right then that this baby would be healthy, and that everything would be OK. I told DH that morning and then we both left for work. I would say that his response was not immediate joy! He was shocked and said, "How did this happen?" DUH!! (that's what I said!). Well when we got home that evening he said that he couldn't concentrate all day...this was all he could think about. He was very excited by that evening and was asking when we could tell people etc... ! I knew he'd be thrilled....after it sunk in!
So I waited 2 more days and decided to take a Clear Blue Easy test. I wanted to see WORDS instead of judging by a faded line! It of course said "pregnant" so I called the Dr and made my first appointment. October 10th. She said they will do a sonogram that day too. DH is going to go with me.
I have been experiencing extreme fatigue, and some nausea. Nothing too bad yet. I have figured out that pizza gives me horrible heartburn!! That makes me sad because we LOVE pizza, but my body just can't handle it!
I can't wait to tell our families! We really want to wait until the 1st trimester is over before we tell anyone, but it is going to be SO HARD! I'm thinking about just telling our immediate fam after my dr visit, and wait on the rest of the world until November. We'll see how that goes.
The reason for the subject of this post? Judging by my LMP, this baby is due on May 25th. My birthday!!!
