This is not going to be as detailed as everyone else's, but here goes it!

I'm Ashley and I just turned 22. My DH is 25 and we have been married since April 5, 2008. We weren't going to start TTC until Oct/Nov 09 for insurance reasons. Well, about 5 or 6 times in Sept we DTD without protection for the first time and BAM!

Sunday September 27th I got my BFP at 8:30pm then used a digi to back it up at 10PM.
The next day I couldnt hold the news in! We told my parents/siblings/Grandparents! Most of them were in shock because they thought we were waiting a couple more months before we were going to try. This is our first pregnancy.

For my parents I wrapped up two baby bibs that said "I love Grandpa and I love Grandma". I told my mom and dad it was a housewarming gift because they just moved into a new place. She opened it and said "O, these are cute!" She knew I was buying baby stuff way in advance before I was even pregnant so she thought it was just bibs for when I did have a baby. I said "You dont get it?" and she looked at me really funny and was like "NO, your joking?!?!" Finally they caught on and were very happy! For DH parents(they live 2 hrs away) I sent an email to his dad and the heading was Grandma and Grandpa. I sent a picture of my pregnancy tests in that email, then texted his dad to tell him to check his email. DH got a call about 45 min later from his dad who was very excited!! DH's mom says she wants us to have 6 kids! HAHA

So far I am 6 weeks and this pregnancy has been wonderful! I have been really tired and have had some bad heartburn, but thats it! No m/s or nausea for me yet!

We had our first ultrasound at 5 wks 2 days and got to see the gestational sac. That was very exciting! I am going again in 4 days! I want to see that heartbeat!!!

Pregnancy Test!

5wk 2 day Ultrasound!!

6 wk 2 day Ultrasound! Heard the Heartbeat! 109 BPM (90-110BPM is normal at 6 weeks)

6 wks 2 days (Heart blood Flow and Yolk Sac pic)

Heartbeat was strong at 150 BPM!!

Here's a pic of my mom when she finally realized what the bibs meant!

Here is a couple pics of my belly. I already had that pooch and im already overweight sooo, thats not the baby!! HAHA
