This is how I found out I would be a mommy!
Joshua’s surprise is inside the bag…
…And I do think he was quite surprised
when he pulled this out. Lol.
Exactly one month ago today, June 25, 2011, my life (and Joshua’s) changed forever. This was the day that we learned that we would be parents. I never understood how women, especially those who had never been pregnant before, could say they “knew” they were pregnant before they took a test, but now I do. You just know. I think I just kept putting off taking a test because, in my head, if I didn’t physically see the results it wouldn’t be true. When I finally took the first test and the results instantly popped up, I think the world stood still for a little bit. When I took the second test, I think it finally hit me, but still I was kind of in shock. I couldn’t wait for Josh to get home from work. I was so happy when he walked through that door, just so I could hug him. When the shock wore off, I think we both became a little more excited.
I called that Monday and made an appointment with the health department to confirm the results. They confirmed on that Friday that I was 7 weeks pregnant. Even then I’m not sure that it felt real. Then came the process of getting pregnancy medicaid and WIC and choosing a doctor. Our first actual visit at the OB’s office was this morning. Today we just went over the preliminary things, like blood work, going over both our medical histories, how the appointments will work, do’s and dont’s and such. She said that the baby is due on February 17, 2012 and as of today I am 10 weeks and 3 days along. We have an ultrasound next Wednesday and I absolutely cannot wait to see our sweet little baby for the first time!
