If you already haven't heard...I'm pregnant!
People have been asking me a lot of questions, so for
those who I have not talked to here's my pregnancy story.
Jeff and I started trying in about January.
It only took a few months before finding out.
One Saturday morning Jeff asks me, "Have you started yet?"
I said, "No, I think I've got a few more days." ...weird that he knows my schedule better than me!
I look at my calendar, "mmm I was supposed to start yesterday"
(Aunt Flow visits me EVERY 28 days without fail)
"If it doesn't come by tomorrow I'll take a prego test"
Jeff and I got a phone call that Sunday morning from
our dear friend's brother-in-law. He told us Garrett wasn't going
to make it after being in an avalanche accident and we should
come to the hospital and say our goodbye's.
After leaving the hospital and thinking about life, Jeff tells me we're
going to the grocery store to get a test. I got home, pulled out one of
those sticks and did what you're supposed to do.
I sat and stared at it on the counter, don't worry I've cleaned the counter since.
Ever so SLOWLY the lines started to form.
The test was positive.
I stood there with my eyes glued to it. I couldn't believe I was pregnant!
The combination of sadness from earlier that day and the rush of happiness
created a numb feeling inside.
We were still trying to take in the fact that our friend just passed away, when we
found out I had a little baby forming in my stomach.
It felt very surreal.
I emailed my doctor to tell him I was pregnant. His nurse told me I
needed to get my hormone levels tested just to be sure.
The nurse called me the day after getting my blood drawn.
"Hi pregnant lady!"
I'm with my dad in the car...and he doesn't know anything.
I quickly turn my volume down on my phone.
We got your test results back and your levels are pretty high.
OK...I'm thinking what does that mean?
You might be having twins!
Oh wow. I look over at my dad to make sure he didn't hear anything.
My brain is screaming WHAT!
She says I should have told you to sit down before telling you that news.
I'm glad I was sitting down.
After hearing that information I scheduled an ultrasound.
I had to wait two weeks to find out whether I was having twins or not.
I was so excited and so scared. I didn't know what to think.
When the screen was focused and the doctor told me there was ONE little
baby growing, I asked him if he was sure and he said yes.
I was relieved, but I had gotten a little excited to have twins.
It would have been one crazy adventure.
But I'm excited to have one, and have a less crazy adventure.
I was only 7 weeks at the time, but we were able to hear the heartbeat that day!
It was incredible. At that moment it wasn't surreal anymore.
I realized our baby was actually inside of me and I'm going to be a mom!
I'm at 11 weeks now and will continue to update on progress.
Next week I have an ultrasound so it will be fun to see how much
the baby has grown.
We told our parent's last week for mother's day and here are some of the pictures.
