I peed on a stick… =)

 

…and I’ve never been happier!

Though it really started with this stick:

Can you squint enough to see that very faiiiiiint line?

Praise God!!

All the positive pee stick peeing happened this past Wednesday and it’s been a whirlwind ever since. From finally getting to rush out of work when I was off to head to the mall, find the right present to tell the Hubs with and then home to wrap it and wait not-so-patiently for all the excitement to begin.

To my surprise, I called the doctor’s office and they actually scheduled my first appointment for today! It’s only a visit with the nurse for blood work and education, but just hearing someone else confirm that I am actually pregnant will be such a relief. The first BIG doctor appointment is mid-January and I can hardly wait to see the little one on the ultrasound and to hear a heart beat♥

More to come on the full story leading up to how I found out, pictures of what I gave Hubs to tell him(!), my official two week wait symptoms AND what happens at my first appointment today!

 

Pregnant by Christmas?

CHECK!!!!!!!!

  7. Congratulations! I think every woman has peed on at least 2 sticks to confirm what they're seeing. I remember that feeling when my stomach did a little flip and I almost had to pinch myself to make sure it was real! The blood work will make it seem more real but nothing will compare to hearing that little heartbeat for the the first time! What a great Christmas present!!
