We woke up early today…to go to school and get some things done. I was NOT feeling like getting out of bed this morning. My I’m sore and I felt as though I was going to puke everywhere. But I haven’t vomited yet! So I reluctantly got out of bed and took a shower, shaved and dressed. I ate some breakfast and took my vitamins too. Walking around the campus on this very hot day is no fun at all.
I have discovered that my class shedule won’t be to bad as for as the physical walking part of it goes. We are going to get a bus pass so I can get shuttled from one section of campus to the other.
When we got home I relaxed on the couch for a while and then had a sandwich and some chips with juice. My plan to survive the semester is to keep food with me and a water bottle so I dont get dehydrated and will be able to knock back the nausea.
I want wait till I get into the doctor and get an accurate due date.. 🙂

So lately I have been feeling nauseated to the point I think I’m going to puke and never do.
We spent the day running around getting our car prepared and official in Virginia. We also turned in our application for Medicaid and should get a letter in a week or so. I really hope I get the letter soon, so I can be seen by a doctor and start prenatal care. Good thing I’m taking vitamins.

I think I am already going to have to buy some new pants and shirts to wear. The shirt I have on right now, has been riding up all day, and I have had to keep pulling it back down. My belly appears to be getting bigger too!

My mom knows I’m pregnant! I called her today to see what was up (not really planning on telling her I was pregnant) and out of the blue she says “Your Pregnant.” I said, ‘Yes, we found out Sunday”. So she and I talked about it a bit and she seems to be happy about it. 🙂

I’m what?!
This morning I took a home pregnancy test. I watched the dye go across the panel and I saw pink. The control line came up dark pink, and within 45 seconds the 2nd pink line showed up! I looked at in disbelief as I waited for the rest of the 3 minute time slot to pass…and started to cry. I couldn’t believe it!

I’m pregnant!

This is an unplanned pregnancy, but welcome. God has plans for us, and our baby too.

Pregnancy Reflections

First Month

I started thinking I might be pregnant when:
On July 23rd. I had a really funky metallic taste in my mouth, then it returned again on the following Monday, and has been coming off and on since. Not to mention the fact I was nauseated and really sore, so I began to wonder.
I found out I was pregnant when I:
Bought a pregnancy test, and waited two days to take it. I was really sore, and nauseous, and had gotten up twice in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. That isn’t like me, so when I finally got some decent sleep and awoke again, my husband went to walk our dog and I took the test.
I felt:
Shock and amazed! I couldn’t believe it…I never imagined that we’d get pregnant this soon in our new marriage…or anytime relatively soon after we’d decide to try for children, and there it was…a BIG FAT POSITIVE! I cried. I was happy, scared, anxious, you name it and I was feeling it!
The first person I told was:
My husband, and then the dog!
They reacted by:
Almost crying.
My baby will be born:
Estimated Due Date: April 1st or 6th 2008

more than likely at Lynchburg Baptist Hospital

The strangest symptom of pregnancy I had this month was:
Metallic taste in mouth, yuke!
My hopes:
To deliver to term a happy and healthy baby.
My fears:
That the first ultrasound won’t reveal a heartbeat.
