What an amazing month this was! I mentioned in my first post that I was going to save February for another post. Well... here goes. By the way.. get comfortable, this could be a long one.
On February 7, 2010... I woke up feeling a little... well, different. My stomach was a little uneasy, and I thought "could I be"?... "No way, it's too early"... "Okay, I'm just going to take a test and see what it says". After a back-and-forth conversation with myself, I did it... I took a pregnancy test. I got so anxious and worked up about it that I just threw it away and ran out of the bathroom. A few minutes later, I went back in, dug it out of the trash can (gross I know) and there it was... a faint blue line. I couldn't believe my eyes, so I ran into the bedroom and woke Jordan up.. made him put his glasses on (he's blind without them) and asked "WHAT DO YOU SEE?!?" A big smile came across his face and he said "I see a faint line"... I totally freaked out. Finally, I gained composure and got myself dressed and ready for church. The whole time in church my stomach was in knots.. a part of me still wasn't convinced that I'd gotten a positive.
You see, Jordan and I had wanted to start trying for a baby, but when I missed a couple of periods, my doctor confirmed that I wasn't ovulating. Every month that I missed a period or was late, all the anticipations and emotions of thinking I was pregnant flooded my mind.. and each time... a negative. So, when I finally a got a faint... I mean faint line... you can see how I wasn't immediately shouting it from the rooftops. After church, I pulled my sister-in-law Aimee to the side. She is my source to go to for all things dealing with pregnancy! I finally confessed that I'd taken a test and gotten a faint line, but I wasn't sure if it was a positive. She agreed to come over that afternoon and read the test for me... before she even got there, I took another one.. lol... another faint blue line. Whoah! Aimee confirmed the tests were positives... be still my heart!
Because, I had trouble ovulating on my own and had to take one round of Clomid, I decided to go on into the Dr. to get the pregnancy confirmed and to make sure all my hormone levels were good. Everything checked out great and we got the "Congratulations... you're going to be parents!"
So... here we are, on March 2nd... I am almost 7 weeks pregnant. We are beside ourselves. We are ecstatic and couldn't be happier. Today we went in for our first sonogram and heard our precious little baby's heartbeat. The heartbeat was strong and loud (it was 132... I'm thinking it's a boy) Everything with the pregnancy is going great; I am healthy, and most importantly, my sweet baby is healthy. Thank you God!
When I originally decided to start blogging again, it was because I wanted to keep up with weekly updates throughout my pregnancy. This is such an amazing journey and experience, and I want to savor it and remember it.
Now... introducing "Baby Weathers" or as we like to call it... "Peanut"
