Well I found out 8 days ago that I am pregnant! Tomorrow I will be 6 weeks! I am so incredibly excited and in complete disbelief at the same time. Everyday I pay attention when I go to the bathroom to make sure I'm not spotting, I pay attention to the "cramps" I get and wonder if they're not too severe. I am so paranoid that this is going to fizzle out on me! My husband still can't believe that I'm pregnant even though he's probably more excited than I am! He won't really be able to know the I am pregnant for sure until we go to the first doctor's visit and we can do a sonogram.
We weren't trying to get pregnant. We had specific plans set in place and we were going to hold off on trying for baby #1 for about another year. Well obviously nature didn't want to wait! lol I didn't even realise I was ovulating the night we had sex and he came in me. Almost every time we have sex he pulls out (yeah, not the most reliable method of birth control but it worked for us for 2 years). I thought I had another week until I started to ovulate so I wasn't really concerned about him coming in me. Then the week of 3/16 I should have been on my cycle. I realised on 3/17 that I was about a day or two late. Plus I had some major heartburn going on. I just figured it was what I was eating for breakfast and didn't think much of it. I told myself I'd give it til the end of the week before I would let myself jump to conclusions. I had been sick and on anti-biotics half of February so I just thought that was throwing me off.
Thursday, 3/20 my hubby and I were at the gym and I realised that I didn't have the same amount of energy as I did before I got the flu and a sinus infection and was really concerned why I wasn't lasting long. Then my husband told me that he had a really vivid dream of a pregnancy test a few nights ago and he really wanted me to take one. I just kind of laughed it off, but inside I was starting to suspect something myself!
I woke up at 9am on Friday and really had to pee. So I got up, got the pregnancy test, peed on the strip, put it down on the counter, finished peeing, and then looked at the test . . . I couldn't believe what I was seeing! All I could think was "Oh my god!" No way! We weren't planning on this yet! What would hubby think? A few hours later I went to the doctor's care down the road and peed in a cup there. They confirmed it; at that point I was 4 weeks, 5 days pregnant! I got a prescription for some prenatal vitamins, got that filled then went home to tell Dave. He was soooo happy! I've never seen him happier the whole time we've been together! I'm not that far along but we have told EVERYONE!
Now I'm just absolutely paranoid that I'm going to miscarry. :eek: I've been working out, eating as well as I can, taking the vitamins, but I'm still really nervous. Everyday I remind myself, "well I still haven't gotten any spotting or my period, so I'm still pregnant!" I think I'm going to have to remind myself of that everyday until I get the all clear from the doctor.
