We’ve been a little quiet and haven’t been so adventurous lately and I figured I should finally update as to why! At the end of September I had been super nauseous, so on October 1st I had Dave run to the store to get me a pregnancy test, and some ginger ale and Altoids (those things save my life!). The next morning I took the test, thinking it would certainly be negative, but it turned positive instantly! I was so shocked! It was so hard waiting for Dave to come home from work to tell him the exciting news! I put the test in a cake pan with tin foil over it, and when he got home from work I told him I had made him a surprise. He said he definitely wasn’t expecting it and was really surprised!
Since I wasn’t quite sure how far along I was since my cycles are a bit irregular, and since I have had a few miscarriages in the past, I made an appointment with my OB right away and was able to go in on the 8th. They were thinking that I may be around 6 or 7 weeks based on my cycle, but they could only see the gestational sac and the yolk sac, but no baby yet. It was really hard to not know for sure if it was going to be a viable pregnancy or not and just having to wait for the next appointment.
