Well...you really won't believe this one, 'cause we don't. I'm pregnant! Seriously! After Matt's birthday party last night, I felt extremely bloated and not right, especially since I hadn't seen my period in over 40 days. Now, keep in mind, I'm an irregular gal so the date didn't seem to throw me. So I just sat up this morning and said I think I'll take a pregnancy test just to rule it out...and I did...and to our astonishment, it was POSITIVE!!!!!!! There they were, the word I'd been waiting on for over a year and a half...'Pregnant' on my niffty digital HPT.
So I screamed for Matt and we sat there looking at each other for 5 minutes, unable to form a coherent thought. Then he suggested I go get more dog food because we were out. Perfect. But actually, he really thought we needed more proof so off I went to clear out the grocery store of their entire stock of HPTs. Turns out, they were all correct! I got squeezed in to see the nurse practitioner today just to make sure I was pregnant and after I waited for what seemed like an eternity, they called me back, took my weight (ugh I gained 5 or so pounds:(), blood pressure and got a urine sample then the nurse walked in with paperwork and started with "Ok, which hospital do you want to give birth at?" and I said "wait...WHAT??? Am I really pregnant??", she said "Yes, girl!!! You're 5 weeks and 6 days! Your due date is June 4th." That's how I heard the most fabulous news of my entire life!
So here I sit, blogging about this experience at 4:30pm after I have daydreamed an entire day away. I can't tell you how surreal this is. I go in for the first ultrasound in 2 weeks and hopefully we'll get to hear a heartbeat! Until then, we'll try not to tell anyone...wish us luck with that! It's gonna be hard! And just to measure how I started out in this pregnancy, here's a belly pic...except that's not the baby - that's carb consumption:)
