Tiny Tiny

A long time ago when I envisioned telling Robert I was pregnant, I bought a baby outfit to surprise him with. I had forgotten that it was all wrapped and hidden in our closet, until the other night when we were watching a movie it hit me that I was actually pregnant and could give it to him.
Cute card for the dad-to-be
So tiny :)
 He had no idea what the package was, but once he opened it the look on his face was so sweet. I can't wait for him to be a dad; I have no doubt he will be one of the best. :)

Side note: we got another positive blood test back yesterday! Next step is my 6.5 week ultrasound on 12/13. So anxious to see a heartbeat so this feels more real.

Good news

I had my blood work this morning and got the much anticipated phone call from the nurse that I am indeed pregnant! She said my numbers looked really, really good and I was to come back in a couple days to retest and make sure my numbers double.
Taking a huge bite of this sucker as my phone rang
We are so happy, I don't event know what to think.

We're Pregnant!

Welcome to the blog! I thought this would be a great way to document my first pregnancy, as well as update our family and friends on our life.

On November 21, 2012 we found out we were pregnant with our first child! After quite some time trying, we are so happy and grateful. I am 4 weeks today, and tomorrow I will go in for some blood work to confirm I am on track. After wanting this for so long, it seems unreal and will definitely take some getting used to (proven by taking several pregnancy tests!!).
