alllast visit: 3rd Sepmember since: Aug 30th 2012about me:
My husband and I are expecting our first child May 2nd 2013 after 6 months of active trying. Hoping for a healthy and happy baby rather than a gender. I'm currently 21 and at age 17,I lost my baby at 12wks gestation, Forever angel baby will be loved and missed.
I'm a cowgirl; I'm family oriented and I have Thalassophobia (fear of the Ocean); I enjoy all things cosmetic...from makeup to drapes; I scrapbook and love picture taking; My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving and I truly believe I was born to be a mommy.
IM PREGNANT!:: I had tracked my ovulation and monitored my temps and CM but this month of Auguest felt like a dud. I had already been trying for 6 months straight and all the other months I conjured symptoms up in my head and made myself overly excited just to fall dissapointed. I refused to feel defeated once again and so I let it go, I tried around ovulation time and stopped thinking about it. Finally the 23rd came around, and no Aunt Flo, slight cramping but no other symptoms, I just figured since I was 3 days late last month that maybe i'm still too stressed to start on time. Late that night as I lay on my stomach in the floor I noticed breast tenderness. Another sign of Aunt Flo? Maybe. I stayed up ALL night watching Dr. Phil and before i knew it, it was 4am! I thought to myself i really need to sleep and before that can happen I had to pee. I remembered I only have 1 First Response left from last month and since I already had to pee, I used it. I left it on the counter without looking at it for a good minute and when I looked, A FAINT PINK LINE (next to the dark pink line of course). My heart stopped. I thought "I MUST be tired." I angled it in every way towards the light before needing a second opinion, I couldn't wait, I woke up Hubby and had him take a look. Positive. We both smiled so big and hugged...He went back to sleep and I called my mom immediately. The Family (his and mine) were so excited and all smiles as we told them; we had many 'Best Wishes' and lots of pre-planning (Baby Shower...Clothing Sales...Good Strollers...etc.) They were more excited than us I think!! Since the 24th I've taken a ClearBlue digital as well. Definately Pregnant and Absolutely Ecstatic to be a Mom.
And that's my story. For those of you TTC, my advice is to relax, I know how frustrating it can be but it will happen.
