AJ and I have been trying for baby #3 just about two months. I began to get frustrated, as I had gotten pregnant immediately with the boys. It does make things a bit tricky to find time to baby make with two boys and their hectic schedules. Not to mention a husband who works at night. But.. we obviously did something right.
I began taking tests last week. I just didn't feel right. I felt as if I had the beginning stages of pregnancy brain. I left things in odd places, leaving me to retrace my steps. The tests were from Dollar Tree and when I took them, I swore that I saw a faint line. The lines were nothing like I remembered from the boys. I shook it off as I was testing to early.
This week, I continued to have pregnancy brain and wrote two checks without completely filling them out. I also have been feeling really bloated and exhausted. I bought a set of EPT tests last night and ran home to try them. When we got home, I swore I saw a faint plus sign, and even called AJ in to validate. Again.. frustrated I turned to the Internet and saw that many people had the problem with the tests. I decided that today I would get a digital test. No debating... it was going to tell me Pregnant or not Pregnant. AJ laughed and said mine would come up "I'm not sure."
I couldn't wait to take the test. I had been cramping all day, and thought maybe I wasn't pregnant. I sat in my parents bathroom and said a little prayer. I watched the hour glass spin on the test and then I saw "Pregnant"! I think I was a bit in shock. I took a picture of it with my phone and sent a message to AJ. It said " OMG!"
He is already on me about watching what I eat, starting to exercise, etc. Really funny because he wasn't like that with the others. I teared up twice today when I thought about how this baby would not get to know Mamaw Grace. I know she has spent time with our little one and I am sure she is started him/ her out right. I know she will be watching down on us every minute as I know she does everyday.
I am so proud of myself. I haven't told a single soul other then AJ. It should be interesting to keep our secret as we are going on vacation with our families. I am sure it will come out when they see me pass up a glass of wine. No Michigan wine for me this year.
