We’re Pregnant!!


Every fall, I like to make the drive up to Ohio to spend some time with my parents and to see the beautiful fall colors that just aren’t the same in North Carolina.  This year, Dan was unable to come with me due to his travel schedule, but I packed up the dogs and myself and set off for my drive.  It was a very peaceful and pretty drive through the mountains and it was great to see my family and some of my friends. 

I was actually out with some friends on the Friday night that I got into town and received news from one of them that she and her husband were expecting!  I was so excited for them, and now that I had two close friends who were expecting, I was even more anxious to have our own little peanut.

I went to bed that evening knowing that there was a chance I could be pregnant too, so I decided to take a test the following morning, and what do you know, it read in very clear letters “pregnant”  I was excited, and nervous, and unsure that the test was actually right all at the same time, but I immediately called Dan and told him the news.  I think he felt the same way I did, so after telling my Mom and talking to her a little bit about it, we got another test and again, it was positive!  I was beyond excited but still very nervous, and didn’t want to get my hopes up in case this was like the last. 
We ended up having a wonderful weekend, and I headed back home to be excited with Dan, talk with the Doctor’s, and let it all settle in.

About a week and a half later we had our first Doctor’s appointment, to confirm the pregnancy.  By due date calculations we should have been about 6 weeks pregnant, which is a little early for a first appointment, but the Doctor’s knew my history and wanted to do an early ultrasound to check things out.  I was a nervous mess going into the first appointment, and I felt like my heart was going to beat out of my chest.  The gestational sac in the ultrasound revealed that we were in fact pregnant but we were “expecting” to be about 6 weeks pregnant and were only measuring about 4 weeks 6 days, so there went my nerves again.  We talked to the nurse practioner and decided that we should come back in 2 weeks for a follow up ultrasound to make sure things were progressing the way they should be. 
So we let the waiting begin…
