I'm Katie (29) and I've been married to my husband Freddy (42) for 5 years. I had a 'feeling' yesterday and took a test that turned positive as I was peeing on it! This will be our first and we are both very excited! We are due May 11.
I stopped birth control in May following my graduation from nursing school! I've recently started my new job as a nurse here in Connecticut on an orthopedics/neurology/urology floor. I have always wanted to work as a labor and delivery nurse (it's why I went to nursing school in the first place) but that job is hard to come by, hopefully next year I will be able to move to that floor. I'm still on orientation. I'm really stressed about that and now adding the pregnancy is also making me a bit anxious but I'm also very excited. I work long 12 (usually longer) hour shifts and will be switching to nights in 5 weeks so I hope I can manage it all.
So far everything has been going well but I've definitely gotten more nauseous in the last few days.
Sorry if I rambled too much but I'm so excited to be here!!
Thanks Vicki... for my beautiful siggy!
Congrats! You sound like me when I was pregnant with my first.. I had just graduated from nursing school and got my job when I was about 5 months pregnant! It's a hard adjustment, and toward the end you will probably get super grumpy (I know I did!) But I love working 12 hour shifts because you get four days off a week!! It's as close to being a stay at home mom as you can get without being a stay at home mom!
Congratulations! I worked 12 hour nights on Med Surge with #3 and Pulmonary with #4. until I was 35 weeks with both. I started dialating and effacing at 35 weeks so they took me off. I was realllly tired and sore when I worked Med Surge but I loved it and I miss it! I am not working now and wish I had work to distract me!
