The Discovery

Pin It Now!
Today we found out that we are expecting our first baby! I am almost 5 weeks pregnant. I could not be more excited!

I have been having odd symptoms and should have had my period 3 days ago. I have been cramping (lightly), having hot flashes, heartburn.. It just was strange! When my period didn't come I thought "well, maybe..." and so I got a pregnancy test from the dollar store, not really thinking too much of it. When the second line showed up (faintly), I was confused. Immediately I Googled it and apparently even a faint line means preeeeeegnant! 

SO, I showed Mike and we decided a second more reliable test was in order. Off I went to Walmart, got the ClearBlue Digital test, and ventured home. Immediately I went in and took the test. You have to let it sit flat for 3 minutes and I was SO nervous, so I brushed my teeth, washed my face and hands, and then left the room. I asked Mike if he wanted to look at the result with me, or should I check first. He said he wanted to check, and so he did. I stood in the doorway and he checked. 

"What does it say?" I asked.
"Pregnant.." He replied, "That's so crazy!"

So here we are.. new mom and dad to be, standing in the bathroom doorway in shock. I hug him, and I'm sort of shaking (happily!) because it's sinking in for me. Mike on the other hand is still a bit in shock, and it hasn't really sunk in too much for him.

We sat quietly and I looked up some things about the baby and how far along I am. Downloaded some apps that track my pregnancy, etc.

Dear baby,

You are the size of a poppyseed this week. That's incredibly tiny! I'm going to do everything I can to take care of you, I promise. I'm going to eat healthy, and go for walks, and keep my stress low. I love you so much already, more than you'll ever know. Your dad and I are already so excited to meet you, and you won't even be here until August! In the meantime, please just focus on growing. That's all you have to do. I will take care of the rest because I'm your momma :)

me... your mom!

happiest day of my life
