Guess What?!

On Thursday December 10, 2009 Cody and I found out we are expecting a little bundle of joy and we couldn’t be more excited! No it wasn’t an accident. We were so fortunate to conceive on our “first try.” As of this blog I am 4 weeks and 4 days along.

I had been having some early symptoms of pregnancy but thought that there was no way that we could’ve conceived that quickly. I kept trying to convince myself that I wasn’t pregnant so I wouldn’t be disappointed when I found out it was true. I thought the best way to do that was to take a test. So when I woke up on 12-10 the first thing I did was take a pregnancy test. I was watching it as it was doing it’s thing. All of a sudden an extra line started to appear in the background. I watched it closely thinking I must be imagining it. But sure enough, the longer I watched the darker the line got! I hurried out into the bedroom to my sleeping husband. I told him to wake up! He opened his eyes and looked at me with tears in my eyes, a smile on my face, and pregnancy test in hand. He moaned…I’m not really sure he was processing what this meant. He got up with sleepy eyes and looked at the test. Then a big smile crept across his face. He hugged me while I cried.

We called his mom on his phone and my mom on mine. When we had them both on the line, I held one phone up to each ear and told them together that they were going to be grandmas! My mom cried and his laughed with happiness! They were both shocked I think. None of us thought it would happen this quickly! Then I called my step-dad and Cody called his brother and sister-in-law. On my way to work I started calling friends and more family. Of course I couldn’t keep my big mouth shut and within seconds of arriving at work my co-workers knew. My friend Selena went our on her lunch break and got us our first gifts.

It just seemed like it couldn’t be real, so on 12-11 I took another one in the morning just to be sure. It too was positive….Can’t have 2 false positives, right? Also on the 11th is when Cody shared the news with his co-workers.

So here we are now…Today the rest of Cody’s family will find out and so will Facebook! That’s been the hardest part for me…not posting it all over the place! We wanted family to know first before Facebook did so I’ve tried to be patient!

Our first appointment is on Friday December 18. From what I understand we probably won’t have a sono that first day…Which is fine I guess. I’m so anxious to see my little bean. I think that’s when I’ll actually “believe” that this is for real.

I feel fine. I’m just tired all the time. I’m not sick at all yet, but according to Google I won’t be for another week and a half probably.

So, this is the start of a new chapter in our lives and we’re so excited!

Cody, Marissa, & Baby
