One Lucky "Swimmer"

All last week I had been feeling very strange. Super tired at work. HUNGRY beyond anything I've ever experienced. Nauseous when I fed that hunger. Super edgy and really irritated at the constant trips to the potty all day and all night! I wrote this off to being stressed with my job ending and our PCS to Ft. Lewis. In addition Aunt Flo should be arriving soon; that explained the sore ta-ta's!

On Friday, June 24, 2011, I knew something wasn't right because the sore ta-ta's had gone away and yet there was no surprise visit from my monthly buddy. Now I was wondering!

I woke up at 6:20 am to get ready. R was graduating his last cycle of soldiers. He had been named Drill Sgt. of the cycle so I wasn't going to miss watching him get recognized for his hard work and caring efforts towards these young soldiers. Not to mention I was getting flowers too...Who doesn't like that! I had one pregnancy test left from a scare we had last year and decided, what the heck...

I knew it was too early to test but I thought to myself--- hubby and I HAD been talking about trying for a baby in the near future and on a whim, decided we'd leave it in the big guys hands and quit trying to stop a pregnancy...However, I was nowhere NEAR ovulation when this happened and it kinda takes an egg to make a baby....But what if?

I unwrapped that bad boy with a vengeance thinking the entire time about all the strange symptoms I'd been having. I don't know about you, but I HATE that 3 minute wait once you've tinkled on the stick...I couldn't help but stare at it, my eyes crossing and manifesting fake lines the entire time. It hadn't been two minutes before I got this!

The line was so faint though; I thought I was imagining it...After R's graduation, I swung by our nearest Rite-aid and bought a digital test. Those are supposed to tell it like it is:) Lord, I never thought that ticking time clock was EVER going to disappear! But it finally did and I got this!!!!

I'm going to be a MOMMA!!!

The doctors confirmed it today. I am 3 weeks and 5 days pregnant; due on March 7, 2011! That is a good month before daddy will deploy. The ironic thing is, the day after I posted on here about baby fever, we conceived. How wonderful and bizarre!
