8 weeks pregnant!

Hello ladies!  I was on here YEARS ago when I was actively trying to get pregnant.  I haven't tried in awhile and haven't been pregnant in 6 years.

A little back history...I've had 5 miscarriages. All from 2007-2010. I have a condition called MTHFR. It's basically a chromosome disorder...that causes blood clotting and vitamin b and folic deficiencies. I've been told I can't get pregnant without mediciation.

My boyfriend and I have been on and off for a year now. We live an hour and half apart also.  Since August we've been together and doing really well.  I flew to Missouri on Nov 6 and came back to NC....I noticed I was sick but figured it was motion sickness from the plane.  I started thinking as the week went on about how my period wasn't right in October. So Monday the 14th on my way back home I stopped and got a test.  Sure enough! Positive right away. No waiting any mins on all 5 test.  

The bf is coming along with the news...it's just been a big shock! But we are happy. I'm trying to stay positive. I had an ultrasound Friday to show I'm 8 weeks as of today and a health strong heart beat.  The farthest I've been in any pregnancy was 7 weeks.  So praying this one sticks!
