We found out some BIG news yesterday! We’re PREGNANT! About 5 weeks along! Kinda came as a surprise but kind of not (if that makes sense). We thought about trying and then every time it was the right time I got cold feet and backed out wanting to wait a little longer. But to our surprise when I finally decided I needed to take a test I saw a little something I really wasn’t expecting. After 3 positive tests I think I am finally starting to believe it, but I’m still completely shocked, and thrilled of course!!
I immediately ran downstairs to tell my hubby Dan, and I was shaking so bad I didn’t even have any words, he said he wished he would have taken video of me telling him.  I started crying, I was excited and scared to death! I called the doctor today and started the beginning appointments, blood work tomorrow and we’ll be able to go in for our first sonogram at 9 weeks which will be about the end of February. This weekend we’ll probably be telling our parents and maybe closest friends because who can keep this kind of secret any longer!?!?! As soon as I have the blood work back and confirmed we will do that. Dan wants to tell everyone now and I’m making him wait! Since when am I the calm one? He’s usually the play it cool type and I’m the one who wants to do everything yesterday! This sure will be an interesting experience for us. More to come, but for now here is my very first belly pic, (aka my last flat tummy pic) that we took last night for the blog. (I have to get better at taking these photos, Sorry for all the junk in the pic!)
I’m going to keep track with a little questionnaire thing that I can answer the same questions every week, so hence this blog was born! A place to track everything, for myself and some friends and family who live out of town!

How far along? 5 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Still the same right now

Maternity clothes? No
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: This morning I woke up at 4am and couldn’t fall back asleep, I think I’m still having a little anxiety over this realization.
Best moment this week: Finding out we were pregnant!!
Have you told family and friends: Not yet
Miss Anything? I already miss my wine
Movement: No
Food cravings: No
Anything making you queasy or sick: No
Have you started to show yet: No, still very early
Gender prediction:  Have absolutely no ideas yet, still trying to believe there is actually a baby in there!
Labor Signs: No pregnancy symptoms of any kind, I will cherish this for now!
Belly Button in or out? In

Happy or Moody most of the time: I haven’t noticed a difference in anything yet, although I did cry when I told Dan yesterday, and I think I started to cry three times on my car ride to work this morning, excited and scared to death tears.
Weekly Wisdom/ Thought of the week: Take a test if your late, don’t chalk it up to being newly off the pill, it can happen right away! We apparently are proof of that!
Looking forward to: Getting blood work back confirming everything. I am in a little state of denial still I think. 4 tests can’t all be lying right??
