First Doctor's Appointment

I had my first doctor's appointment today.  All went well, and Chris did a great job (in that he didn't pass out or make any embarrassing jokes).  I get to have an ultrasound it two weeks to determine the due date.  Since I was late last month, the doctor would like to tell by measuring instead of guessing.  I'm pretty excited about that!  Since I have been feeling a little crampy, she also had my progesterone level tested today.  She said the cramping could be totally normal, but it doesn't hurt to check, so I had a quick blood draw.  If it so low, she'll just put me on progesterone to boost it up. 

Next week I have an hour long visit with the nurse to get all the information I need.  But the doctor has already told me to start eating more protein and make sure I get lots of dairy and water.  She also said (and I'm so not lying!) that she considers ice cream healthy.  Whoo hoo!  We're having a baby!!

Two Lines!

Holy crap, the day has arrived.  At about 5 am on Saturday morning, Chris woke me up, insisting I go take a pregnancy test.  I was two days late (again) and he couldn't take the waiting.  So I got up, trudged to the bathroom, thinking it was going to be yet another negative since I have been feeling rather crampy.  I peed on my stick, set it down, and when I looked over, this is what I saw:

That's right, two lines, which means.....I'm pregnant!!  Chris said he was for sure not expecting our weekend to go this way, and I must say, I agree.  I will be calling the doctor today to make my first appointment.  We'll be keeping things quiet for the next couple months to make sure everything progresses as it should.  I'm feeling good (still crampy, though, which apparently is because my uterus is stretching...ALREADY??  the thing is the size of a poppy seed right now, what do I need to stretch for?)  I'm sure that will change very soon, though.  But to sum up, WHOO HOO!!
