Friday the 13th of November

Seemed like it took FOREVER for this day to finally come!

I got to meet with the Physician Assistant and she again performed a normal exam.

By the size of our lil' peanut she estimated our due date being July 4th!

Today was extra special... I didn't get to hear the heartbeat but got to see it! It's amazing to know something so small can already have a heartbeat! What a little miracle!*

I truly don't see how someone can't believe in God when you see life growing in the womb!!

Next appt is around the corner, on the 25th! Hopefully we'll have a more accurate due date and how far along we are!

I still haven't been sick so am very thankful for that! Hoping it continues that way :) Just ready for the exhaustion to be over with!


Oct 22nd!*

We had our first doctors appt! I absolutely love our doctor and am excited that she will be the one delivering our precious angel!

She performed a normal exam and estimated that we were about 5 weeks along! All we could see was a little dot, literally!

She sent me for bloodwork that day and then again 48 hours later and called to inform me that everything looked very promising and I was progressing well!

We then made our next appt for Fri, November 13th!

5 weeks ago tomorrow...

is when we found out WE ARE EXPECTING!!!

I was waiting on that time of the month but was feeling extremely exhausted ALL the time. Hadn't been sick and had debated on taking a home pregnancy test with Joseph but knowing I've never been consistent with how many days apart, I decided to wait a few more days.

That few more days turned into the next day when I went to Target and just had to have an answer so I bought one! Got home... the box said it takes 3 minutes to get an answer. Well this result was instantaneous. There were definitely 2 pink lines staring back at me. I think I looked at it for a good 5 minutes deciding whether the one line would sink back. I even read the instructions again to be sure I was looking at it right even though on the test it CLEARLY said 2 lines= pregnant!

I immediately called Tim and Sarah for advice on how to tell Joseph! I was going to go up to his work but called to see if he was busy and told him we needed to talk. His immediate response was : "You're pregnant, aren't you!?" He was more excited than I thought he would be since we weren't trying at the moment but we know and rest assured that everything happens for a reason!
