We're Pregnant!

Yesterday was the most important day of my life, thus far.

I had a weird gut feeling, and asked Ryan to go buy a few prego tests. He looked at me like I was crazy, but obliged.

10 minutes later, he came through the front door with a box of EPT's. I grabbed the box, and headed into out 1/2 bath.

I sat there and held this little stick, completely not even nervous. It was the digital kind, so a little hour glass spun and spun... the box said to wait 3 minutes. Within 44 seconds, the word Pregnant popped on the screen.

I think I said something along the lines as :
"What the hell?!! HONEY!!!!"

Ryan ran over to the bathroom, grabbed the stick, and sat on the couch, staring.

And I stood there, with my jeans around the ankles, in complete shock.

We hugged, and cried, and screamed, and said Oh my God 30 times. Cried some more. FREAKED out!

Went to my parents house.
Told our families.
Told our friends.
Everyone is so thrilled.
So excited.
We are so blessed.

Every prayer I have ever prayed has been answered.
God is amazing.

I took all 3. I just had to.

I could barely sleep all night. I have so many thoughts going though my head. Im excited, scared, thrilled, anxious, nervous all at the same time.

The following are questions that I will post once a month, until my second trimester. Then, I will post once a week, when things start progressing rapidly, and everything is more exciting!

Total Weight Gain:
Zero. I think. I haven't weighed myself in like a week. Probably zero though. I cant imagine my little embryo and its parts weighing more then a quarter ounce.

Maternity Clothes:
No. No. and No. But, I am kinda thrilled that I lost a little weight before hand, so my pants are all a little on the baggy side.

Stretch Marks:
Obviously, no. Praying I can keep those under control.. they run in my family.

Exhausted. But, mainly because I couldn't sleep last night due to being so excited. Im not sure if the prego tiredness has crept in.

Best moment of the week:
Seeing the word PREGNANT on the pee stick. 3 times.

Not real movement of course. I feel little flutters every once in awhile.. but they feel alot like cramps, but not painful. Must be everything moving around and getting ready for baby =)

Food Cravings:
More like Lack there of. My appetite has been less then appealing. Started last week. I just kinda feel blah when I eat a full meal. Im going to enjoy this for now... as Im positive my appetite will come around, full swing.

Food Aversions:
Ya, that about sums it all up.

Belly button:
I have a super deep inney. So, I dont think my buttons gonna be poking out until the end of these long nine months!

What I miss:
Nothing. Its been 24 hours =)

What Im looking forward to:
Everything! Having a belly, seeing the Dr, meeting my little one on a sonogram, heart beats, boy or girl, nursery, meeting my little nugget!

Weekly Wisdom:
Let go, and let God.

Being PREGO!

I can not wipe this smile off my face. February can not get here soon enough!
