I told hubby!

So FINALLY my hubby came home. I had a set up waiting for him! I had put a hamburger bun on a plate and on an index card I wrote "Looks like somebody's got a bun in the oven". Then I took 2 toothpicks taped it to the back of the index card and inserted it into the bun. Then I placed the bun in the oven. When hubby got home I was causually sitting on the sofa like nothing new has happened. He thought I was waiting for him to get home to test. So he ask me to go take a test now that he was home. So I agreed but then I said "Oh, shoot! Honey, I left something in the oven! Can you check it for me please?" When he opened the oven he almost cried. It was a fun way to tell him.

I had my first doctor's appointment on Wend. April 22nd. It was the first time I had seen this doctor so I was a little nervous. I had also had spotting a couple of times and was very worried. But she said I was ok. Then I got to do an ultra sound. I was only 5 weeks and 5 days at the time, so baby is still really just a blob. It was still magical to see though. It kind of makes it all "real". Since baby was so small I have to go back this coming Wend. April 29th so we can see the baby's heart beat. Now THAT will be exciting! I just wish my hubby could be here to see it. He just left today and will be home late Thursday night. That will be his schedual for the next 3 months.

I haven't had many pregnancy symptoms yet. Mostly fatigue. All I ever want to do is sleep ALL day long! Sometimes I will get nausous. I had to get up a few times at 4am and eat crackers. YUK! But it's all for a good cause. Well, as I said I am very sleepy and I gotta go. Can't wait to see my baby blob next Wend! :D

Wow, after 15 months of trying I'm finally pregnant! I found out Monday, April 6th. Of course my hubby isn't home and will not be home until Saturday. I want to wait and tell him face to face and not over the phone. I cannot even begin to tell you how many pregnancy test I have taken in the last 15 months! So when I seen a faint line in the test area, I was so overwhelmed! I ran to my sisters house, next door, and told her right away! There was screaming, laughing, and crying! I cannot wait to tell my hubby. He'll actually get home a bit early now, midnight 2night. I told him I had something planned for him from a while back forgetting he was working that day and he agreed to come home early since he could get a flight in.
It was important to me that he come home early, not only to share the good news, but to be able to tell my Mom. She will be going out of town early Saturday to her hubby's family for Easter. I want to try and catch her before they take off so she can have a nice Easter surprise! She's always always hinted around to wanting grandchildren, so I can't wait to see her face when we tell her! No one even knows we were trying, we kept it a secret, so everyone will be surprised. I also can't wait to tell his Mom. It will be her first grandchild as well! My hubby is her only child. His dad is offshore so he'll have to find out later. (Sorry Father-in-law!) I just cannot contain my joy over this much longer and feel I have to scream it from the roof tops for the whole world to hear!

I have waited for this day for so long. I remember at 24, 2 years into our marriage, I begged and pleaded with my hubby to have a baby. He wasn't ready and I had to respect that. I knew God had a plan and I needed to be patient. It's all seeming to fall into place now! God couldn't have timed it better for us. My hubby just paid off his car and mine will be paid off in 2 months! That's an extra $700/month we will have to pay on our other debts (which isn't to much) and enough to start saving for our baby. Also in 3 months hopefully his work will give him that job. While it will be even more difficult now to leave family and move to a new town, it will be great new beginning for our own little family. We would after all be safe from hurricanes and still only 5 hours away for family visits.

My life now is no longer humble or boring. This changes everything! I might have to change my blogs name to something else other than "My humble life"!

Moved Delayed

Okay, so I guess I'm giving up hope on ever moving out of this hurricanne ridden area. For now at least. They are saying now maybe June. It's all a bunch of BS if you ask me. Guess the economy is suffering to much right now to give promotions.

Anyways, besides all that, I'm doing good. Me and hubby started a new supplement to help us concieve. It's called FertilAide. He takes the men's I take the womens. I started it last month a week b4 my period. I'm now doing the last week of my 2ww (2 week wait) so in about 6 days I'll test. I'm really hoping we got it this time! Keeping my fingers crossed!
