Oops. We did it again.

I guess I could do a Wordless Wednesday with this one because the picture says it all, but it's Sunday, so instead I'll do a Sunday Thankfuls or something like that.Yep! We're pregnant! I had to wait to tell all my immediate family members first before I blogged about it, and frankly I was so busting and just couldn't blog at all until I could blog about this! So that's the real reason I've been MIA. I am a terrible secret-keeper and this has just thrown me for a complete loop! Ohhh the myriad of emotions I've been through this week, which coupled with raging hormones, was a very interesting experience to say the least. I bought the test last week and took it totally thinking "Nahhhh...". I was rushing through it too, taking it at the totally wrong time of day (around 5pm after drinking a bottle of water, which while you're trying to get pregnant is a no-no because you want to have all the stars aligned -- first morning pee without the water to dilute it -- yes, you can file this under "TMI" or you can file it away for later, either one). But we were not "trying" really, and as I finished peeing on the stick touted as the "most advanced technology you'll ever pee on", I heard the lock on the front door turn, and heard my husband's footsteps toward the bedroom. Just before he walked in, I saw it. "Pregnant." And my mouth was agape and I handed him the stick and didn't say a word. He was so super-excited he could hardly contain himself. I, on the other hand, was stunned. I was happy, of course, but terrified. Ironically, I had just hours before had a conversation with my friend about having more children. And I admitted to her that I had only just recently thought that I could even think about getting pregnant again. Think about it. I was a little scarred from the first one. My first pregnancy was riddled with complications and I wasn't sure if I could handle it if it happened again. But you know what? I'm just going to have to believe that whatever the plan is, I can handle it and hope for the best in the meantime. I have to keep my blood-pressure low and find my Zen place so I can keep the stress to a minimum. At least now I know what to expect. So our first appointment and sonogram is April 5th, which is so soon! If I had to do the math, I would say we're probably only about 4 or 5 weeks along right now, so it's early. But I figured, if anything (God forbid) happened, I would be blogging about that anyway, so it's only fitting that I share it now. Like I said, I'm not a good secret-keeper. I can "vault" other people's secrets, but not my own. I've been completely frazzled all week, along with nauseous and exhausted, all the normal stuff. But I'm so excited! Bye-bye guest room! Oh and I'm glad I took a picture of the test. The little digital "pregnant" reading wore off after only a day! The first time around, I did the one with the lines, and I took four of them because the second line was only the faintest pink line and I didn't trust it. But I still have them in a drawer and all the lines are still there. FYI.
