Can Anyone Say FINALLY!!!


(Sorry this picture is upside down, it won't turn!)

Yes, it is true...

WE'RE PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...These are our cute shirts that we had made a while ago so we could be ready to tell
our families as soon as possible! Heaven knows I can't keep a secret...

...SO EXCITED...

...Telling my Family...

So I started feeling pregnant around the middle of January, cramps, lower back pain, constant hunger, tired, some might say a little more irritable... Anyways, so I took a pregnancy test on January 17 and it was Negative... YES, I cried, but NO, I did not believe it because of all of my signs I was having... I also thought that maybe those signs were wishful thinking, but who knew.
So, I took another test on January 23. I woke up at 7:30 like always to take my temperature and my heart was pounding SO hard- I couldn't fall back asleep and I just felt like I should go take a test. So, normally when I had taken a test, I tell Andrew that I am going to, take the test and then run out of the bathroom without looking at it and then 5 minutes later we'd go in together and look at the results... This time I decided to let him sleep and I'd wake him after. So, I did my thing and then put the test in the bath tub and shut the shower curtain so I wouldn't peak at is...
While I was waiting for results I got on my knees and prayed...
I said, "Heavenly Father, I PROMISE to be the best mom ever! I PROMISE I will spoil the crap put of my kids! I PROMISE to raise them right!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me be pregnant!!!" (No, this is not an exageration!)
So, time was up and I opened the shower curtain and...
IT WAS POSITIVE!!!
Then, I RAN into our bedroom and woke Andrew up and was shaking my positive test in his face, jumping on the bed, crying, screaming- you name it! To say that i was extatic was an understatement! Poor Andrew was very confused and didn't know what was going on because he didn't know that I was going to take a test this morning. When he finally realized what was going on he was like, "Really!?!?!" Then he looked at me and looked at my test again to make sure... it was really funny! Then I kept crying so we laid in bed and cuddled cause we were SO excited!!!

That day we video taped us talking about our life changing news and I went back and watched it and it is SO funny because i am talking SO fast and am just going crazy! Thanks for the cute idea Lindsey! Later that day we went and bought one boy outfit and one girl outfit! I seriously just want to buy everything SO bad!
I really don't care what our little baby is, but if I got to pick I would probably pick a girl! I told Andrew that I want a pouty, prissy little diva and he said that he already lives with one and can't handle another... we'll see about that!

...Picture at our first appointment with Dr. Horsley!...


So, today I am 11 weeks and 3 days! YaHoO! Which puts our due date as September 27!!! We had our first appointment last week and it was SO amazing to hear the heartbeat and see the baby moving around in there! It is crazy that I can't feel a thing... yet! When Dr. Horsley held the monitor really still and we got to see the baby move for the first time it started moving it's tiny little arms and waving at us! It was SO amazing! Then it kicked it's tiny little legs and I was seriously fighting back tears the whole time! Andrew had his little boy smile and had a cute little giddy laugh- I know he is SO excited too! He's going to be such a cute dad! Everytime I think about him holding out little baby bear I get all choked up and almost start crying- I know it'll just melt my heart the first time I see Andrew with our little baby bear! Yes- baby bear is it's nickname for now ;)
I must be the luckiest girl in the world because I only had morning sickness for 2 weeks! (weeks 6-7)... My lower back hurts all day long, but honestly I rather have a back ache than feeling like I am going to throw up all day! I've had bad stomach aches at night which is no fun, but o well...
Well, hopefully everyone is just as exited as we are... Ha Ha! Not possible... Love Ya!
