So I decided when I first got pregnant to start this little blog so I could remember all that I was feeling and the excitement of it all.  This blog is mainly for me, and family & friends that want to read well as anyone else who is interested!  I have been keeping weekly updates,etc. so I will be sharing each post with the date it was written.

We are pregnant!!!  How am I feeling?  Well, I am still in complete shock.  I am so incredibly happy and overwhelmed by God's faithfulness.  I was so surprised when it actually happened.  Although, this is really the first month we've been trying that I just had a feeling it might be this month. 

This was the first month I used ovulation tests to pinpoint my most fertile days.  I knew then that my period should fall 14 days after that.  I estimated I would start anytime from Wednesday through Friday (12/7 - 12/9).  When I hadn't gotten my period yet, I decided to take a test Saturday morning (12/10).  I had heard that you have the most accurate results with your first pee, so I woke up at 5:45 a.m. needing to use the restroom and went ahead and took a test.  I could not believe my eyes when it said a big fat "Pregnant".  No faint line, this was a digital test and it just said Pregnant. 

I immediately ran in to tell Corey.  I walked into our room and over to his side of the bed.  I woke him up and told him the news.  Then he reached up his hand to give me a high five (haha) then pulled me into bed to hug me.  We snuggled for a bit and talked, then we decided I should go take another just to be I did, and it said the same thing! 

I took another test on Monday morning and went in for a blood test Tuesday.  I got the phone call with my results today (Wednesday) that the blood test confirmed I am pregnant.  So that is the little story of how we found out.  I wanted to make sure and get the details and how I felt down for memory of this very special day!
