We're pregnant!!!

I had my first doctor's appointment today and I measured at 9 1/2 weeks.  Baby Germanceri, who I think is a boy (Kris), was very active on the sonogram today and we determined that he/she looked almost like a gummy bear.  We are very excited and know our families are, too!  Baby will coming to a hospital near you around May 3.  

Written August 24, 2009...

Today is the day before my 1st day of my 4th year of teaching.  I had an open house for parents and came home late.  John came home even later after football practice on Ft. Bragg at 8:30 p.m.   He asked me, “Are you pregnant?”  I suspiciously asked, “Why did you ask that?”  He insisted he just got the feeling today and prayed God would remind him to ask me when he got home.  I suffer from a paranoia that I am always pregnant anyway, and I had one pregnancy test left in the cupboard so I said, “I’m going to take one right now.” 

 About 30 seconds later I screamed “John!” and he came into the bathroom thinking that it was a joke.  By that time my hands were already over my mouth. 

 We quickly grabbed 2 waters and ran to Food Lion down the road for more pregnancy tests.  As we drove, our dog Chula in my lap, I thought of all the signals my body was telling me I was pregnant.  I have had stomach cramps for about 2 weeks, headaches for even longer, constipation, fatigue, and the list goes on.  It’s no wonder I didn’t think it sooner.  All those times I thought I was pregnant and wrong, this time I had no idea.  But I did, does that make sense?

 I didn’t need to take another test, but I did anyway.  Sure enough, another plus sign.

Yay! I just happen to stop by your blog! I can't believe Becky didn't tell me! Congrats! I'm SO EXCITED for you two...it's the BEST thing in the whole world. That is going to be a beautiful baby!
p.s. Be careful what you say...I was SO sure that Molly was gonna be a boy. I was shocked when they said, "It's a girl!" Haha:)

aww, how wonderful! For my first, it took about 3 tests to convince me. For our second (due a few weeks before you) it took only one, but that is just because John said no more tests! LOL. It is just hard to trust those little plastic things!

Congrats!!! That is so exciting. Everyone thought I was having a girl but I had a boy. The spring is such a nice time to have a baby.
