Hello everyone. So a friend of mine from high school started a blog posting about her pregnancy, and I have found it very interesting to read, and see what things she has been going through. I am going to be a little bit of a copy cat and do the same thing in my journey through this pregnancy. Right now I am 6 weeks pregnant, and the expected due date of the baby is August 9, 2009. This has been an exciting year for Nick and I, filled with the wedding and the recent move to Northern Kentucky. If you would have asked me on my wedding day when I thought I would first get pregnant I would have said no sooner than next summer. However, I guess God had other plans.
During thanksgiving break I began to think that I was pregnant. The following Monday I was in Lexington overnight for classes, and I was staying with some friends. That night I took a pregancy test but it came back negative so I put the idea of being pregnant out of my mind. However, by that Friday I still had no sign of not being pregnant, and I decided to take another test. We were going out for my friends birthday that night, and Nick and I were getting ready. I took the test, went to my room to get dressed, talked to Nick, and then walked back to the bathroom to fix my hair. I honestly had not thought anything of the test because the one earlier in the week had been negative. When I looked down and saw two lines I lost my breath!! I ran to the other room and showed Nick the test and we both just looked at eachother. I didn't know whether to laugh, cry, scream. I was soo excited, but also so scared. It was an amazing experience. I took two more tests after that to be sure. We could not keep our news a secret, and quickly everyone knew. My dad was the last to know because I wanted to tell him in person, and did not get the chance to see him until last weekend.
This is an overwhelming ride. I have not felt sick as of yet. Last week I had one day of nausea, but I think it was from a virus that was going around the preschool I am currently working at, and not related to morning sickness. At times I have to convince myself that there is really a baby in my belly because it does not seem real as of yet. Nick and I are currently choosing an OB-GYN, and I can not wait to have my first ultrasound, hear the heart beat, and see my little baby even though it will look like a seed. Nick and I have played the ring and string game, and it says that we are having a boy so we will see what happens. As of now I just pray for my little babies health and safety.
I have uploaded a picture from our wedding this past July, and our Christmas card picture. The doggy is our baby girl Bella Gardella. She is one, and I am mildly obsessed with her. We just got a new puppy, and we named her Sydney. I will post pictures of her soon.
