Chris and I just found out a week ago that we are pregnant. It only took us two months of trying, I never imagined it would happen so quick!! I can't even explain how excited I am! So many of my family and friends are pregnant, I felt out of the loop until now!! My sister in law, cousin, and I will all give birth within 5 months of each other. That is so exciting to know that I have so many friends to get advice from and go through pregnancy with, and already have playmates for my unborn child! :)
I almost don't even believe that I'm pregnant, and probably won't until I see it on my first ultrasound (June 2 - 6 when I go to California, my aunt does ultrasounds). I know it will be teeny tiny and look more like an alien, but at least a cute one!
We told our parents about the pregnancy last night, I wanted to take another test and double check before I got anyone excited. I put the two pregnancy tests in a ziplock bag at the bottom of a gift bag, and put another gift for my parents on top of it. Just something un-baby related. I told them it was an early Father's Day gift and a late Mother's Day gift. Niether of them had any idea that it was going to be another grandbaby!! They will have 3 grandbabies come January, before my mom is even 45! I am going to have so much fun planning baby stuff and spending time with my mom throughout this pregnancy. It's an excuse to go shopping and to yard sales :)
I am already getting stomach pains that are waking me up at 2 am, I didn't think any symptoms started this early! I usually eat eggs for breakfast every morning, but the last couple days I don't even want to look at eggs or smell them! I am interested and excited at what is to come in the next few weeks. I will be 6 weeks tomorrow! :)
The retired pastor that taught at my church when I first started going there, who also did our wedding, didn't even know we were trying to get pregnant, and about three weeks ago he told me he had a dream that I came up to him and told him I was pregnant. So yesterday when we started telling our friends, I told one of my best friends Brianna, who is his granddaughter, to also tell him that I really am pregnant. He told her that on Sunday at church, just a few days ago, that he was looking at me and just had a feeling that I was pregnant. How cool is that?? But now I am going to be asking him a lot more often what he is dreaming about.... :)
I will try to post a picture soon, I already have a belly! (which isnt baby, I hear its bloating...) My "what to expect when you're expecting" book is telling me to take a good look at my waistline now, because in a few weeks I wont be seeing it again for quite some time!!
