This morning was not like any other morning, I sort of jumped out of bed and rushed to the bathroom because I had this “feeling” that I should take a pregnancy test. I was supposed to start my period the night before and kept thinking it would come during the night but it never did which led to me to the urge of taking a test. In the past I was taking the test but didn’t really “feel” that it was going to be positive but this morning was different, I was sort of expecting to see the + to show that I had a baby growing inside me.
I went into the bathroom, ripped open a pregnancy test, re-read the instructions to be sure I was doing it right and started to urinate. I was told once by a friend that urinating a little bit then putting the stick in the urine stream was best so that is what I did. And then almost immediately this is what I saw………
I got teary-eyed right away and had to show George immediately, I was so excited and emotional. I ran into the bedroom and woke him up holding the pee stick so that he couldn’t see it right away. I told him I was turning on the light (poor guy had no idea what was going on) and he wasn’t too thrilled with that idea. I told him to open his eyes and look and then he saw it and his face was amazingly excited. I just can’t explain the pure joy and love I feel right now and it has been a little over 4 hours since I found out this wonderful news. I can’t wait to shout it from the roof tops that I’m pregnant and that George and I are having a baby.First doctor appointment has been made (blood work tomorrow) and I signed up on http://www.babycenter.com to get my weekly updates. According to the website my expected due date is April 1st which is hilarious since that is also Aayla’s birthday (Isaiah and Heather’s daughter). According to BabyCenter, our little Herron is 4 weeks old and the size of a poppy seed. I’m getting excited about this journey but one of the best experiences is to see George excited. He wants to tell everyone right away about the pregnancy but I’m trying to hold back and keep it a secret for as long as I can.
I need to look up health and nutrition for newly pregnant women. My main concern is to continue to be active and to make sure I’m eating all the great things that our little Herron needs in the first few weeks of development. I’m going to do some research and of course I’m going to pick up the excited baby books to start soaking up all this knowledge.
I feel so incredibly blessed and happy right now and I’m anxiously waiting the day to spread the news with all our family and friends. So far, the only people that know are myself, George and my boss (figured he should know since I’ll be going to many appointments starting tomorrow).
