Hi everyone!! So we just found out this past weekend that we're pregnant!!! and it's still not sinking in. We are just too excited! We actually just got back from the beach with DH's family and I took a HPT at 10dpo the morning after we arrived there and we looked at it together. We were just so surprised to see a faint line! I had been looking at the positive test gallery at FF with him the night before and he said if he hadn't seen some of the faint positives then he wouldn't have believed it was positive :)
We've decided not to tell friends and family until at least a couple of months in, so it was insanely hard not to spill the beans to everyone throughout the trip. We did tell my mom and dad because my mom is a doctor and I wanted to be able to discuss early pregnancy symptoms with her. So that was so fun :) We handed her a little poppy seed and said "that's the size of your first grandkid!" she was so excited! it was such a special moment :)
So far i've been feeling pretty good. Tired for sure, and my boobs are like...unbelievably sore, but no nausea yet. I'm a little dizzy and I'm having some cramping and headaches. I've been obsessing over week-by-week pregnancy guides and stocking up on tons of fruits and veggies and dairy.
This morning I made an appointment with my OB for the week after next. I would have liked to get an appointment sooner, to check my HCG levels and make sure everything is doing what it should be, but that was the next available. Luckily it's with an awesome doc. DH and I are going to tour the hospital on Monday in the meantime. We're pretty excited about that too :)
Can't wait to be pregnant with all you ladies! I can't tell you how exciting it was to be able to post my BFP on my chart and share our joy with you guys! You've been so supportive during this entire journey - I'm so thankful to have found such an awesome community! :) xo
