Holy crap -- I'm pregnant!!!

DH and I had been "trying" (hate that word) for the last 6 months without any success, then I had an apparent false positive urine preg last month....I know, I know, there's no such thing as a false positive, but there were 2 pink lines on one test, and the second, third, and fourth were all negatives. 

Anyway, we decided to take a few months off of the attempting process, mainly because we talked and knew that if I got pregnant this cycle we'd have a Christmas baby.  Well, apparently my body just needed a release from the supposed stress of counting cycle days, because I took several tests yesterday and each has said "pregnant"!  My calculated due date is somewhere between 12/20 and 12/24, so we'll see.  We're a little surprised, but giddy too.  And not questioning our little surprise!  H doesn't want our friends and family to know until our 6 week US to confirm heartbeat, but I figured telling my (mostly anonymous) online friends was safe! 

I'll surely have lots of questions soon.  Even though I'm an ER nurse, all I ever really see pregnancy related are the bad things, so I really just want to get through the first 12 weeks so this feeling of waiting for the other shoe to drop can leave me.  Bonus to my job....unlimited free US :)  That will definitely put the mind at ease!!

(And yes, it is pathetic, but the first thing I did once the shock wore off was go to lilypie and get my ticker :))

Re: Holy crap -- I'm pregnant!!!

  • Congratulations!!  That's wonderful news.  You're lucky being able to have an U/S anytime you'd like. 

    Ask away about being pregnant or anything else!! 

  • Congrats!!!

    Parker was a surprise, a great one.

    We had gone to talk to my OB less than 2 weeks before about what we need to start doing to "try" and get pregnant. Looks like we knew more than we thought we did :)

     Happy to answer any and all questions you have. As a mom to a 2 month old... I'm an expert :) At least in diaper changing I am.

     Wish you a Happy and Healthy 9 month!


  • Congrats.  We had a similar surprise after 9 months of trying.  Funny, I never believed that "just stop trying" hoopla. 


    The baby boards are OK for the occasional question, but definitely lurk first.


    Good luck! 

  • Yeah Erica!  How exciting.  I loved the unlimited u/s as well.

    Come on over to our St. Louis BOTB board  There are quite a few of us moms over there as well as moms to be and new(er) moms that are great for answering questions.

  • Congratulations!  Smile

  • Congrats! Happy and healthy 9 months to you and your little one!
