Mission Accomplished

So after the maybe-positives on the pregnancy tests, I was finally able to get an appointment at the doctor. Well, not my usual doctor, but a totally new doctor. Yep, my doctor couldn't get me in for a few weeks. A few weeks?! Hello lady, I can't wait that long. So I totally bailed on my old doc and got myself a shiny new one!

I never went back to sleep after 5:00 a.m. on Thursday. I was too anxious, nervous, excited, afraid, and a zillion other feelings. James looked like a deer caught in headlights. The headlights being fear and anxiety! We got to the doctor at 10:00 a.m., and then had to sit in the waiting room for 20 minutes. The longest 20 minutes of my life! And of course, I'm thinking - did I really see 2 lines this morning? What if I'm totally not anywhere near pregnant and this is all just me being a prego-chondriac? I mean, I have been obsessed with getting pregnant, so I could have imagined it all. Possibly. I really hope not, that would be so embarassing!

We go back to the way back, finally, and I have to pee in a cup. Of course I flip out and am like, I can't pee - I have no more pee! I am supposed to get a blood test, I already did the peeing at home. The nurse assures me that the doctors' have stronger tests than my little EPT, so I go along with it. And ya'll, I'm telling you it was like 3 seconds flat and she says "yep, it's faint but it's're pregnant!" AHHH! So exciting, but lonely because James is in the exam room waiting on me and the doctor. So, we go in there and I tell him "it was right, we're pregnant." More shock and fear on his face. I have the nurse tell him we're pregnant, and after she leaves us to wait for the doctor he says, "I'm not believing any of this until the DOCTOR tells us for sure!" My little pessimist.

The doc comes in and confirms, yes I am pregnant. Four weeks and 3 days to be exact, and our due date is October 30th (but this will probably change). James is still in disbelief, and she tells him at least 3 more times that this is for real and we are pregnant. I am over the moon excited and happy and anxious and happy and anxious and get the idea.

This all still feels like a dream to me. I woke up today and was like, "Did this really happen?" I literally called James at work twice today to confirm with him that we did in fact go to the doctor and she did say we are pregnant. I am already totally in love with this baby. Seriously, I know that's weird since it's so freaking early - but I am already talking to the little bugger. I figure it's never too early to bond and train your child.

Right now our little lima bean is the size of a tiny apple seed. Isn't that crazy?

I deleted the picture since most of you thought it was gross....we'll go back to pictures when I have sonograms and such!

(or maybe gross, sorry! i'm obsessed with seeing what it looks like each week and you will get to journey with me!)

OK, I was right there with ya until the medical textbook illustration. When the little bugger has a noggin', I'll squeal and say it's cute. ;)

Dude, ya'll are up way late! I know, the medical pic is kinda gross. I don't think I'll post the next few weeks of pictures b/c they get kinda creepier. We'll just imagine a tadpole instead. :)

Beckers said...

Oh, go ahead and post the pics—it's your blog, missy!

BTW, I'm totally referring to the baby as "Lima Bean" from here on out—probably even after he or she is born. :)

OMG- I almost just spewed out my cookies I just ate. That pic really just took it to a new level!:)

CONGRATULATIONS!!! So excited!!!!

So, now, take it easy, don't OD on pickles, and get plenty of rest to save up for your trip to the Midwest. Just b/c you are preggers doesn't mean you won't be partying with the rest of us:)

I couldn't be more excited for you and I could imagine yours and James' face through every description of the unfolding drama.

I totally think you should follow the Stationary tradition and go with a name like Portfolio or something...anyway, gross picture, but cutest stationary story ever!

Ok already...we know the mission was accomplished...what we don't know is how the daily mission is going. Give us the nasty details, we can take it, we want it, we need it (we want to prepare our minds for it...for one day). DO TELL!
