Well I have been thinking about making a journal for some time and I guess now is as good as any to do so. I am 13 weeks pregnant today!! and this is our first. I guess I will recap a little from the beginning. I just graduated from NAU in May I moved to the Grand Canyon in April for a job. This is when I meet Harvey we started dating and in July I moved in with him. Towards the end of July I found out I was pregnant. I am 22 years old and just graduated college and just started dating Harvey I never in a million years thought that I would be pregnant so eairly on. But what is gods will is. I told Harvey after taking about 3 HPT with a very very dark line BFP with a good friend Drew. I expected Harvey to freak and not stay with me or realize that he didnt want to be a father yet and tell me to get an abortion. I was really unsure myself as to what the H**l I was going to do. But He didnt (at that moment I knew he was the one) He chalked it up and was prepared for a life together with our child. He is 23 and has a good job we both talked about it and it was something that we wanted abortion never crossed our minds. He right away (that night) told his mom whom lives down the street. She is excited to have her first grandchild. I was a bit more reluctant to tell my mother. I thought she would be disappointed in me for not being married first or have a steady job or know what my life plan was first. I felt like I was a teenager still and this news was going to get me shuned from my family and everyone would look down on me. I didnt want to dissapoint my family. I wanted to wait to tell her until after my first doctors appointment just incase I had a m/s. So I waited. In the mean time Harveys mother was soooo excited she told everyone and ther mom hehe. My work found out before I was ready to tell them and I kinda felt guilty that all these people knew and my own mother didnt know. But I was going to wait until August 28 my app was on August 27. Sooo long from when I found out.
Well at my first doctors appointment they did an entire background on me and Harvey making sure we didnt have any heretitary complicatons to worry about. Harveys mother had 9 miscarrages before she concieved and stuck with Harvey, thankfully that is not genetic to me through a son. All the women on my side of the family are gifted in the birthin area. My greatgrandma bless her heart had 13 children my grandma only had 2 but only wanted 2 and my mother only had me but wasnt married eigher when I was concieved and it was a long time before she meet my step father Rob her odd to concieve later on were slim. The only thing that concerned me was my theird cousin Tiffany who was boren with Spina biffia. The doctor gave me an RX for extra folic acid ontop of my prenatals I have been taking. Then I had to take a blood test. That was the worst part. (I hate needles) I really didnt get any proof that I was pregnant other then a pee test positive which I already knew form the 3 I had takin at home already. So I was still unsure but knew it was going to be fine. I bought 2 books one on names and the "What to Expect When Your Expecting" which I love its very reassuring and afformative.
This is what our baby would look like right now.
