We are going to have a baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
POSITIVE POSITIVE POSITIVE!!!!
I cannot tell you how in disbelief I am and how thankful and blessed I feel. It feels so surreal to know that there is a baby growing inside me- well right now kind of like a really tiny tadpole, whom I already love with all my heart. 🙂
My due date is the end of April and I am already counting the days before we get to meet our son or daughter.
Besides feeling like you are in absolute Heaven, the other feeling I think all women have when they find out they are pregnant, especially who have fertility issues, is being scared. Not being scared of having the baby, but of having this feeling go away. The doctors monitor you extremely close the first 2 months because your body doesn’t always make the right amount of pregnancy hormones so you have to supplement. I am praying that this baby stays in me for 9 months, and I will do everything in my power to make sure this happens. Positive thoughts and vibes please.
I am so excited!! I went out and bought ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting.’ I have always rolled my eyes walking past that book in the bookstore because I was extremely jealous of women who could buy that book. I thought who would want that stupid book anyways?? Reality: My dream book and I have it! I was beaming when I bought it and I just wanted to say to the cashier, “You know why I am buying that right?” wink wink.
We met my mom at our favorite restaurant, Blue Door, and she had blue and pink flowers waiting for us and was crying as soon as she saw us walk in the door. We then were both crying and hugged and hugged one another. I think this baby is not only a blessing for us, but for our family as well. We need something really good to happen and to focus on the future instead of the past.
We are telling Jack’s parents tonight (Friday) and I am sooooooo excited!!!!
More details later!
Time for breakfast- have to feed myself and baby 🙂
Breakdown of 2 week wait:
Barely any symptoms… here are things that in hindsight could have been ‘signs’
-slight pinching/ cramping… not like all over period cramps but a very specific area… implantation?
-The only alcohol I had was on our anniversary and I had a glass and a half of wine and threw up.
-Super emotional: lets be honest I always am, and who isn’t when you know you are going to find out if the last month of shots made you pregnant or not?
-Farts… a lot of farts!!!! My dog followed me around everywhere! haha.
