Or at least I hope it is :-). I am starting this journal for many reasons, but mostly to keep an account of my first pregnancy(mostly b/c I have SUCH a bad memory). Hehehe, I just found out that I am pregnant (well I took a HPT yesterday morning and it was SO faint that if you looked at it at the right angle, a second line was very faintly there (I didn't tell anyone!). So this morning I took another and it came out darker .
Here is some background information on me and DH. We have been married for 5 years and together for 11. We had originally agreed in August of last year (2005) to wait exactly a year to begin talking about getting pregnant. As the new year approached, August seemed SO far away! So in preparation I started taking Folic Acid (right after xmas), just in case. In March, a dear friend got pg. Then in April, we discussed that maybe we would start in June. Well, as April past (as well as DH 30th bday) I was really itching to get pg. But I really wanted to wait. As May was going by, I really wanted to get pg, but knew I should wait. Hahaha. Well the weekend I was ovulating, I thought, well maybe we could try. I thought we wouldn't get pg, and that we would have just tried. HA! We had sex on Mothers Day and that was it. I either ovulated on Sunday or Monday. And that did the trick! Denial is still running through me!
For my notes:
First day of my last period: 4/30/06
Bding: May 14 :pinksperm: :bluesperm:
O: May 14 or 15
First Testing (First Response): Tuesday, May 23 ( BFN, nice try).
Sick: Wednesday: Woke up very nauseus, dry heaving shortly later
Second Testing: Thursday, May 25. Didn't feel as nauseus as on Wed. The test had the FAINTEST second line. So faint that the only way to see it was at an angle b/c if you looked at it straight on, you couldn't really see it. I didn't tell anyone. Saw my sister who was on bedrest.
Third Testing: Friday, May 26. Darker than previous day and the line was there (although still faint). I woke DH up about 20 minutes later and told him (it was 6:20am, which is extremely early for us!). Then at 8am, I called my pg friend to tell her as she was waiting for my results. It seems that our children will be 2 months apart I hope this sticks.
EDD: February 5, 2007
Symptoms: nauseus, cramping (lower and upper abdomen), back aches, smaller appetite, I get up at 5:45am (and if you knew me, you would think that was weird! I usually sleep until 7:45 and you have to drag me out of bed) and I am tired at night. I usually can stay up and read, but lately, I just can't, I fall asleep after 2 pages. Not sure if that is b/c I wake up so early or because I am so exhausted.
One of the reasons that I really wanted to wait to get pg was because I am hosting my sisters shower in a week from tomorrow. I didn't want to be sick or nauseus, but things happen for a reason!
So much more to share, but I have to get going with my day. More later on my DH and how cute he has been!
