Josh and I found out we were expecting with a Clear Blue Easy digitial on August 8th after two consecutive days of negatives. I so wasn't expecting it to be a positive, but with my hubby still sleeping I thought, what the heck. To my surprise there it was, "Pregnant". I ran out to Starbucks to get him is favorite, a vanilla bean frappucuinio and a gift card. I cam back home and woke him up. He was very thankful for the morning jolt, but was confused as to what the gift card was for. With the pregnancy test in hand, I started jumping up and down and shouting, "Because you're going to need a lot more of these, Daddy." He couldn't read the test without contacts, so he asked if it was positive and gave me a great big hug. We were so thankful and excited about all the new changes in life.
Luckily for me, I didn't experience many symptoms. I had a little bit of nausea, but more often that not, just didn't feel right. I was extremely tired and experienced quite a bit of growth with "the girls", but other than that nothing too much.
My first appointment with the nurse was on September 5th and I didn't have much of a belly at that point.
