Plus One More Giraffe

Yes, it's crazy - I'm pregnant. Ahhh!

I was feeling off the last week of February. Mr. G and I agreed I'd take a pregnancy test on Saturday morning (our work schedules don't mesh any more so we're only both home and awake at the same time on weekends). I saw that second pink line and immediately sank to floor, head in my heads. It was such a shock!

Mr. G was surprised (and I think a little overwhelmed too though he'd never admit it) - he drove to the store for another brand of test, and all told I took 5 that morning. Ha! 

We just stared at all those positive tests and each other. Then we moved on to elation + surprise. :)
a bump!
I still kind of can't believe it. It's hard to wrap your head around! I've toyed with the idea that perhaps our infertility diagnosis was inaccurate but it doesn't really matter. Sometime this fall, we'll have a baby! (I'm officially due November 1st, but not holding my breath.)

The first trimester was rough. The secret for me was 10 hours of sleep a night and forgiving myself for eating nothing but carbs and dairy all day, every day. Maybe that means I'll have a baby that loves cheese and sleep? :)

At any rate, I'm feeling more like myself these days (holding on to that 8 o'clock bedtime, though) and glad I can enjoy this pregnancy and all the fun stuff still to come -
 the ultrasound coming up next month, feeling the baby move! Yay! 

Life is good!

  4. This is just the most amazing news! I'm so excited for you, just like I shared your pain when you guys were diagnosed as being infertile. Just such a wonderful blessing. Explains the silence on blogging in the best possible way. Feel free to post as much as you want about the baby - we're a similar age, and I'd love to be having kids!

    Gosh kicking myself that two days of work meant I missed this news the minute you broke it to the world! YAY!

    1. I wonder how much money those pee stick companies make from 'buy another one to check' like you guys ;)

    2. Thank you for the support! It feels wonderful to have friends who care so much!

      I will definitely be posting about the pregnancy & baby - let me know if you have a specific topic or questions :)

      Oh, those pee stick companies make plenty! We've told our story a bunch of times now and usually there's at least one couple in the room who did the same, haha!

  8. I thought I posted congrats on this but I cannot see my comments. I know I've been thinking of you - as my niece is pregnant too. First of the next generation to do so. So exciting.

    I'm starting here and will read forward so I hope all is going well for you.

    Edited to add: and now I remember why. Blogger won't let me. Grrrrr!
