I'm 24 and live with my husband and our 2 dogs. We met when we were 18 (him) and 19 (me) and have been inseperable since. We've been together for 5 years this September. We were told we could not have children after nearly two years of trying and just before my birthday last year, we got our positive. I almost fainted. I cried. I screamed. It was a day I never want to forget.
Hubby (Adam) also have 2 dogs that we adopted from the NSPCA. Mickey who is now 6, and we've had for 3 years, is a long hair chihuahua and my little boy. lol. Our newest addition was Codex, a terrier/chow mix, who is also 6, and we've had for 1 year. He's such a wuss and is intimidated by Mickey. He's my snuggle butt.
Adam and I are both homebodies. Neither of us care to hardly ever go out, and we hate having to shop for ourselves, because it means leaving the house. I guess with a little one that's something we'll just have to get over.
First child? Yes. and it took 2 years to make this baby.
First child? Yes.
What day did you find out? Nov 10th 2011
How did you feel when you found out? Well seeing how my dr said I can't have children, I freaked. I almost fainted when I saw the positive, then hyper ventilated, then started screaming around the house while crying "I'm pregnant!!!!"

How did the daddy react? Asked if I was sure first XD But he was at work so he couldn't over react too much. Told me to calm down, relax, and that's very happy. The closer we get to the dr apt the happier he seems to get.
