I'm Pregnant!!!

Wow, I am in shock! Here is the BFP story (as I can remember it, which might not be all that well since I am in a daze right now!)...

Our third cycle TTC started the day I went to my Ob/Gyn, who suggested with do infertility testing. I was obviously very disappointed and anxious, but since we couldn't start testing right away, I tried to keep my mind off of IF. We babydanced like usual, but had to go slightly off schedule since we were in Greensboro, NC for a business conference. It was at the hotel in Greensboro that I think we hit the jackpot, so to speak. At about 7 days post ovulation, I had light cramping that almost felt like a little hand grabbing the inside of my abdomen. It was painful, but I definitely felt something. Then for a few days, I felt nothing. All was normal. At about 11DPO, I started to have cramps, was achy, had sore boobs and a headache. Sometime I also started being consitpated...not sure what day it was, but it feels like forever! I was sure AF was on her way. But it's not over until AF shows.

Last night I talked to Matthew about when I should test...I was originally planning to test tomorrow am...the day AF was due. But today at work, I grabbed a test from the lab on a whim. As the test was working, I saw the line appear. At first I don't think it registered. I sat there for a minute and let it sink in. I honestly didn't know how to react at first. So I logged on to the nest and announced my BFP. As everyone started to congratulate me, I thought, "Wow, they are congratulation me because I'm the one who is pregnant!"

Since I wanted to tell M is person, I went to Target on my lunch break to buy a digital and form a plan. I ended up buying a baby card that was blank inside. I wrote to him how excited I was to be starting a family and how excited I am that he will be the father of my children.

The afternoon at work was torturous! I did my best to stay busy and keep my mind occupied - like that was going to happen! To help fill my time, I took another pg test, which was also positive! When I finally left work, I drove him and woke up M, who was sleeping in the car. I gave him the card. He smiled as he read it. This is how he reacted: "Wow, that is awesome!" Such a classic M line! Then I showed him my positive tests. We sat on the couch and talked about our baby and our future.

Then my stomach started growling! Even though I was planning on making spaghetti for dinner, I really wanted pancakes. So we went to IHOP to celebrate!

Today was such a wonderful day. I hope I will never forget it!

Here is the photographic evidence :P
