We had a great time with my family and a couple friends for Hubby's B-Day on November 1st. Everybody left and I thought I knew. We were all out of tests and you know prime time test taking time is right when you roll out of bed in the morning. But I thought I knew! So I gave Hubby that lovingly, tilted head, "you wanna go to the store and buy a test look?" He without even blinking said, sure Beautiful. He is sooo sweet!
Most of you know that we had a very high risk pregnancy with BabyBoy (post to come) and then we had a miscarriage the first week of July at about 8 weeks along.
I used to be sooo regular, so regular that we took a pregnancy test for preg 1 and 2 and found out the day Auntie P was supposed to come. After the miscarriage it was a completely different story. It was not so normal anymore, although I guess I can't ever claim to be normal haha!
Despite not knowing when the day was this time...I was already getting a funny metalic taste in my mouth, it wasn't because of something I ate, Hubby didn't have it :), it's one of those myths if you're having a boy! I had it with BabyBoy and I think the second so now there's no mistaking it for me! ;) It must be one of my symptoms. :) And when we were laying down watching tv, I kept feeling my tummy, something was different, I knew the feeling. But I didn't want to get my hopes up.
All of this was going through my mind as Hubby was on his way with the test! It was around 10 or 10:30 pm! I ripped the test open. I started watching the fluid pass through the window where the lines are supposed to appear.
I saw one line thinking oh yes, the stabilizer line, that one shows up first, now I am just staring like I'm winning a staring contest, waiting, hoping, praying that the second line shows up. I glanced up at the key and it was the pregnant line! It showed up before the stabilizer line! It was the darkest line we've ever seen in any test we've taken (the pic doesn't show it justice, haha)! We took three tests both previous pregnancies!
As soon as I saw that line and realized what it read...I started running to get Hubby and tell him to come look and see if my tearing eyes were playing tricks on me. He so sweetly agreed and I cried! And we kept repeating we're pregnant, we're pregnant! And thanking God, and crying, and praying, and thanking God, and thanking God! And taking a couple pics!
Thinking I completely had it all under control, I have totally cried when telling the fam and few friends so far! I would think oh I'm good, not going to cry this time, then right when the words come out of my mouth, I cry! :) haha
It is very early but because of our history, we would so love and appreciate any little prayers you can send little Bean's way! We know that no matter what happened we would want to share it with you because we know how powerful prayers are. We are almost 6 weeks along :) and our first Dr. appointment is November 24. We are optimistic that we will hear great news!
We want to be completely positive about everything because we cannot express how excited we are, but there's also a little feeling that we will continue praying like crazy that little bean is doing as perfect as could be! I almost want to wait before I talk about the size of the baby and more and more details until we hear everything is ok...
Thank you so much for all of your prayers thus far, I know soooo many of you have been praying for us so much and we could never thank you enough for that! You guys have been such a huge blessing! And thank you for your continued prayers for our sweet Bean! I can't wait to give you a great update on November 24th!
God bless friends!
