"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences."

The pregnancy so far...

This has been one WILD ride!! I have been "sick as a dog" for about 5 weeks now. It seems as though everything I eat doesn't want to stay down. (gross I know, but oh so true!) As of today, I am 11 weeks, 3 days. I have insomnia big time. I'm lucky if I get 4 hours of sleep a night...IF THAT! I am starting to have a belly, which is nice since thats all that reminds me I'm throwing up for something. LOL. On top of being preggo, we're also MOVING!! We found a 2 bedroom apartment in our same Ward & its in our price range. We feel so lucky right now, first the miricle of our lil nugget, then our apartment. Everything seems to be falling into place. We feel so very blessed. I just hope its not too long before I can take time out to blog again! LOL.

We're Expecting!!

So a couple weeks ago I wasn't feeling well. We thought it was the flu...a really bad case of the flu. When it didn't go away after a week, I started to wonder. (while sick I watched "I didn't know I was Pregnant" and they ALL said they felt like they had the flu) So the next morning I took a pregnancy test on a whim and it came out POSSITIVE!! I yelled "SHUT UP!" haha. Since Andrew was at work, I texted him and told him what had just happened. He was on a call, so I had to wait a whole 10 minutes to talk to him. In the mean time, I took 5 more tests. LOL. ALL CAME OUT POSSITIVE! So when Andrew called I said IDK if this test is right and could he pick up some on his way home? He said of course and that was the end of that. Well, I couldn't wait until 3pm when he got home, so I ran to Target to get some MORE pregnancy tests. I took them all, and got the same result...POSSITIVE. So I hope some together and put it on the toilet seat with a sign that said, "You're going to be a Daddy." When Andrew got home, he went to put the tests he bought in the bathroom & saw the sign. I started to cry and he was jumping for joy. LOL. So there you have it, thats how we found out we are pregnant. We are grateful for this experience and can't wait to see our little nugget!!!
Clearblue's digital test "popped" up RIGHT away...PREGNANT!

This is the sign with some of the test's I did.

Here is Andrew looking at it...with the biggest grin on his face!

The proud daddy-to-be!!
After telling some of our family, we went out to dinner...just us...to celebrate. We went to one of my favorite places Shima. It was good, however it didn't last too long. LOL. So after a year of trying, we're expecting a baby on December 1, 2010. We will definately put up new "posts" about our journey into parenthood.
