I never in a billion years thought I'd ever be doing this post. Let alone so soon. But....
Yep, it's true.
There is no way this is real life. It's still insanely early and I should not be blogging or telling anyone about this just yet. But I decided with Oliver that I would not be afraid to enjoy being pregnant and I told pretty much everyone from almost day one. Whether or not something bad happened is irrelevant. At this point, I love this baby just as much as Oliver and I'm so hopeful for his/her future.
Josh seems to be excited as well. The grin on his face when I told him it was positive was hilarious. My cycles have been so messed up from having Oliver that I'm not 100% sure how far along I am, although if I had to guess I'm thinking I'm due January 31, 2013.
So, there's my big news. I haven't even had 24 hours to let it soak in yet. It was very appropriate for me that I found this out the day my family laid my grandmother to rest. Such a horrible beginning to a day that ended with such amazing news.
I want to take a second to say, and I do mean this with every fiber of my being, my heart aches for those who have trouble getting pregnant. I will never understand why or how this seems to happen without difficulty for me and Josh. Please know that I will NEVER take it for granted. I think about women with fertility problems all the time and I get so sad. I wish everyone could experience the joy of seeing a positive test. I hope these don't seem like platitudes because I could not be more genuine. I pray every night for other women who desperately want a baby. May you find your happiness very, very soon.
Obviously I will keep this blog updated now as the weeks progress. Hopefully I'll be able to get an appointment with my OB soon so I can get a definite due date.
Thanks for stopping by! Wow, let the crazy ride begin again.
