Just over 4 days til our appointment..
I went on Amazon and bought Javi a bunch of books so when we redecorate his "big boy" room - he'll have some cool new things to make him feel special. He'll just about be 3 when the baby gets here.
And we want to get him this..
Most the important people have been advised of our newly discovered pregnancy... Only one left... My sister. I am concerned bc we have always silently competed & there has always been a little jealousy. The biggest obstacle is the fact that she is a bit older than me (7 years to be exact) and has medical issues which may deny her the chance to bear children. I think this will be an issue. I hope it goes more smoothly than I expect it to. We'll see.
EDIT: She responded as expected - you could hear the hurt in her voice almost immediately. Her blaise response made me sad for her and I know exactly why. We spoke this morning for a little while. I think she understands why we didn't want to wait to tell her and also I understand better why she was so upset. We have found our common ground I think.
I have been sworn to secrecy until early July but I have so many thoughts running through my head so I am going to dump them here. Those of you who are friends of mine on other networking sites, consider yourself lucky bc you get to read the news here when we aren't announcing it anywhere else until July.

I took one of those tests & sure as can be, it came back positive. We not-so-subtlely celebrated for a few minutes. Relishing in the fact that our efforts paid off and we have indeed procreated. The next morning I called my dr & made an appt for Friday morning to confirm the news. Went in & she entered my little room stating "Congratulations!" So there we go - a medical professional has concured that we are indeed pregnant. She estimates our due date around Januray 12th. She referred me to a
It is absolutely bizarre to me bc I have always been the crazy-color hair, rebellious, draw-outside-the-lines kinda girl. I have tamed down some but I am far from traditional. It is still so unreal to me. But I am going to do everything I can to stay healthy and calm for this baby. It is what I have wanted for so long and we are definitely happy it is happened.
I guess by the numbers I am only about 3-4 weeks? I took a pregnancy test on April 24th and it came back negative so it could be as little as 2 weeks. From here forward, I am going to attempt to keep a pregnancy journal on here. Here goes nothing..
