When Ryan got home I couldn't say anything except show him the 3 positive tests (yes three). He threw up his arms as if he scored a touchdown....Scoooorrrreeeee!!! (And that he did). We soon told our parents and then quickly let the cat out of the bag and told family, friends, and coworkers. Since then, it has been quite the ride. The lovely morning-lunch-afternoon-night-
But so far the pregnancy has been pretty typical (well from what I read....like I really know what to expect!!) I have been emotional, cried at commercials, had cravings, gagged at other foods, but have also felt so happy and excited. I think my best "pregnant day" was when I finished the last pickle and all I wanted was another. So....I drank all the pickle juice! Mmmm, my mouth still waters thinking about it. And then, I continued to sob (like the puffy red eyes, running nose, uncontrollable kind of crying) while I watched....The NFL Hall of Fame show. That's right. I think we will have a little sports lover here, because as I watched Darrell Green talk about his career with the Redskins, I had to think....who the hell is Darrell Green?!? And why can I not stop sobbing about him!
Yesterday we had our 12 week appointment and ultrasound. I think both Ryan and I got a little choked up looking at the big screen and seeing that there was more than just a bean in there. The little bugger even kicks, moves, and flings out all over the place. Amazing that I can't feel that yet, but I know that will come soon. We even saw him/her swallow and then as the nurse showed us the bladder...oops, he/she peed right then and there. The full bladder we were looking at was now a tiny dot. Makes us so proud. Our little baby can pee! lol
Well, now that I have created this site, I will keep everyone posted!!
