Preparing for Baby
Welp. Two tests from the hospital brought home from my boyfriend - both showed a line.
That's three positive tests.
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day..so I'll hit Planned Parenthood Tuesday (unless I find them open tomorrow) and get a doctor's opinion. That'll make it final and I'll start telling the families!
I guess this would be considered day 1. I'm not entirely sure which date was conception, either Jan 16th or 26th. Jan 16th was also the first day of my last period. I haven't gone to the doctor yet, it's Saturday so I have to wait until after work on Monday to get a second opinion test. The only thing that said I was pregnant so far was a clear blue test.
I'm in the 2WW right now. I O'd last Wednesday but I'm already taking HPTs. LOL! This would be Baby #4 for us. Right now we have two boys and one girl. The boys are 10 years old and 16 months old. The girl is 6 years old. Big age spans, I know. This is my second marriage so that's part of the reason. For DS #1 I got pregnant with him while I was a senior in college.

So, today is january 5th and yesterday I took a pregnancy test that came up positive. My Boyfriend and I have been trying for a couple months now. I know we are not married, but we both feel ready to have a baby and will get married later. He doesn't have the money for a ring right now so we figured we would just put the marriage thing off.
