After a year and a half or trying, we are pregnant! I'm so excited, but also nervous. This was our first cycle trying Soy, so I guess it worked well!! The positive showed up very fast, and much darker than I had expected, 4 days before missed AF. It's been I think 3 days now and we are going to go to the store tonight to pick up one more pack I want to see if the line has gotten any darker yet.. if not it will worry the crap out of me!

This pregnancy feels WAY different than the last two. With Caleb, I didn't feel a thing besides cramping until wayyy later on in the pregnancy. With the miscarriage, I didn't even test + until the night before missed AF, and even then didn't have anywhere near as strong symptoms as I have now.

I'm only a couple days short of 4 weeks but I feel farther along, which I know is impossible! I have been queezy so much for a week now, I even mentioned it a few times to DH when it happened, but thought it was from working out. I am very crampy but not in a painful way. I have a few super strong AF-like ones here and there but for the most part it's stretchy and pull-y feeling- ALREADY! Wtheck? I know they say everything is quicker with the second but I haven't been pregnant for very long yet!

My boobs are achy already, too, and DH pointed out how they are vein-y yesterday. I can smell everything, and I am fighting a headache today.

I am SO bloated, probably from gas and constipation that is bugging me!

Mostly, the cramping just really bothers me. It scares the crap out of me! I hope that the crampy fades away sometime soon and gets replaced maybe by throwing up or something .

I am calling the OB in about a week when I am 5 weeks along, to schedule an appointment, and after that initial appointment I will call the midwife to see her and hopefully *fingers crossed* come up with a payment plan that she will work with us for.

That's about it for now! I am going to be writing in here a lot these first few weeks, I can already feel it. I am just so nervous! But excited! I'll update with whether or not the line got darker, lol.

OK- I am allowing myself to get a *little* excited now....

I got a GREAT positive!!!!

Top two are Saturday- 11dpo
and bottom is tonight @ 13dpo.

Definitely doubling every 48, it looks way way darker! Yayyyy!!

I was SO nervous it was't going to show up!
I think this is finally it!

Oh and we got digis too... lol. I know. Ridiculous. Tony really wanted to get the digi's he said maybe he will believe it more if he sees the actual word

Feel lots of stretching and lots of GAS lol going on down there.

This morning, for DH's sake, I took the digi and of course it read "pregnant" and that's the first time I have seen DH get that excited this far. I think with the m/c and then false +'s we have gotten.. even with the really dark line he just wan't buying it. Seeing the word I think really helped him out a lot.

I am so excited but part of me is holding back. Trying not to get too excited "just in case" But I think I need to let go of that part. It's hard, but I might as well enjoy this while it's here and now and I can.. no matter what happens I am pregnant right now and I want to enjoy it .

It's still super early but I called the midwife we contacted w/ our last pregnancy, to see if she is accepting clients for November, and she is! I actually caught her last minute while she was at the airport on the way to Africa. She does midwife work over there now and again but she gave me the number of her partner here, and told me she can take me on in November, and it all got me very excited!

Tomorrow we are stopping by the bank to see if we will be able to get a loan for the money for it. It would be the easiest way. If not, I am sure she would work with us for it, but I'd prefer to be able to give it all to her right away.

I guess we'll see tomorrow what they say! I am SO impatient these first few weeks. I hope they just fly by so I can stop over thinking everything!
