Monday, June 27, 2005. 4:30 pm. I'm sitting on a toilet in a mall food court washroom, of all places (couldn't wait until I got home!), when I see that 2nd line start to appear. That couldn't *really* be a line could it? IT IS!
My legs are jello as I walk home. James (DH) gets home late (why did he pick *today* to stop for guinea pig food??), and by then I'm about ready to burst. After asking what the 2 lines mean (gee whiz!), he says "Cool, cool...so I figured out why the engine has a knock in it." Um, I'm PREGNANT???? Poor James, it took him a few hours before it really sunk in; he was up until 4 am thinking about it! We told both sets of parents that night; I couldn't wait! Everyone is really happy.
Four positive tests later and I'm still in shock a little bit! Really, it shouldn't be too much of a surprise; I went off the pill in March and we started trying in April. I did sort of have a feeling about this month.
I think my due date is March 8, although different due date calculators have given me March 7 and 9 as well. I'm hoping it's the 8th, as this is my mother in law's birthday!
I'm having symptoms already; I feel pretty gross and nauseated in the early morning, then by mid-morning I'm starving and it seems like nothing I eat hits bottom. I'm also feeling pretty tired.
It's too early to be really optimistic...I'm only 4 weeks today. I'm seeing the doctor tomorrow to confirm everything. Please let my little one stick!
