The Best Birthday Present Ever!


So we got home Sunday afternoon, being that it was my birthday I wasn't sure if I should take a pregnancy test or not. I mean let's face it, I have "thought" and "felt" pregnant many times and wasn't. So although it would make for a good day to find out I was pregnant it would also make for a bad day to find out if I wasn't. All weekend though I was starting to "feel" pregnant and even went as far to say that I thought I was! (Which I know better NOT to do, and anybody who has ever had trouble conceiving will understand what I am talking about.) But being that I am never one to wait for anything I decided to go ahead and take the test. Now mind you this decision really didn't take long being that Ben was still unloading the car when I did it! Right away there were two lines but since I was only on day 28 of my cycle, (if any man reads this he is going to be like, "What is she talking about?") anyways, one line was much lighter than the other, but I knew that didn't really matter, if there was a line at all, your pregnant! I had Rylan bring the test to Ben and he was a little confused by the light line but I told him it meant YES! We were both SO happy. It took us so long with Rylan and I knew with him that I needed to explore more medically to get pregnant. But this time I KNEW we would be able to get pregnant and I was so thrilled to have done it the second month we tried! I know, it's SO irritating to hear that when you have been trying a long time, so please forgive me for saying so, I just feel like I deserve to say it since I paid my dues the first go round. I guess I forgot to mention that I had been on the Clomid for 2 months and was having a lot of trouble with it. My doctor suggested that I may need surgery again but I didn't feel that was necessary this time so I decided to see the acupuncturist again. It is so weird b/c the month I got pregnant with Rylan I was on Clomid and got acupuncture for the first time. So to get pregnant again the first month with acupuncture just amazed us both. I really attribute our success though to the Lord! I am so thankful to have the gospel in my life and to be able to have the spirit to prompt me in the things I should do. It has certainly NEVER failed me! Thanks to everyone for their support again and I love you all!

I am SOOOO excited for you! I hope it is that easy for me the second time around, not that we're trying any time soon. Oh, and happy birthday, what a great present! So when does that make you due? Marchish?

My, that line is dark considering that you were only 28 days. Maybe it is twins with you coming up so clearly pregnant.

That is one of my fears right now! I go for my first ultrasound on the 11th of August and I can't wait. I want to make sure it is implanted properly and see how many there are. The only thing is that I think my pregnancy symptoms would be exaggerated if it were twins and other than being bloated and tired I don't have any other symptoms. I remember going through this with Rylan, it's kind of scary when you don't have any symptoms at all because you don't "feel" pregnant. Anyways, how did you feel with the twins?

I felt pretty normal until about maybe 6 weeks. Then I was SOOO nauseuos and tired. I was super hot as well. Those were the three things that seemed to be exagerated.
