What a day!

This day has been full of emotions to say the least...
Last night I was having really sharp pain in my right ovary, it even hurt to walk. So, I googled it & scared the crap out of myself by seeing ECTOPIC PREGNANCY among my search results, that made for a grrreat night of sleep, let me tell ya.
I anxiously waited for 9am to roll around this morning & put a call into the doctor. The on-call nurse called me back saying that the fact that my ovary hurt scared her & wanted me to come in & get an ultrasound to rule out ectopic pregnancy--awesome. Three SLOW hours & 53804 prayers later, we were at the doctor's office. The ultrasound tech did an ultrasound & saw absolutely nothing but a small cyst on my left ovary. Ok, well that made me feel good as far as ruling out ectopic pregnancy, but then the nurse questioned if I was even pregnant at hello, do home pregnancy tests lie?? THEYWEREALLPOSITIVE. Ok, anyway, I got some blood taken & two hours later the nurse called me back saying I'm still pregnant (thank God) and that I needed to go in for another blood test in Friday to make sure my levels are rising (Please, God!!), if so, we're in good shape... so, needless to say, this has been a whirlwind of a day!

Oh, well hello there!

Well, I decided to FINALLY make a blog after a year and a half of stalking others' blogs. I really wanted to wait until I got pregnant before I started one of these, just so I had something worth talking about.
So, here I am, knocked up (finally) and entered into the blog world. This is weird people!
My husband & I celebrated our 1 year anniversary this past August 8th, and that was the month that we decided we would starting trying for a baby. I was quite naive to think that "oh we'll just try once at any time of the month & it will happen." Pssshh, yea, right. After two months of no-success and no ovualation, my Gyno put me on Clomid, I was quite optomistic to be honest. Well after the first cycle (6 or so days), I began to get extreme abdomonal pain & ended up going to the Dr. for an ultrasound to make sure I didn't develop any cysts from the Clomid. All was clear, and on with cylcle 2 of Clomid about a week later... my optomism started to dwindle, but we stayed postive & kept persistant (if you know what I mean)... ahem, well skip to last Wednesday, December 23rd. I bought some pregnancy tests the day before just for shits & giggles and decided to take a test the following morning. I did my business, sat the test on the edge of the bathtub, waited the dreaded three minutes; and to my surprise, there were TWO PINK LINES ON THE FREAKING TEST. I thought for sure I was seeing things because the second line was quite faint. But, as I have read & researched, there is no such thing a "kind of pregnant" and a line is a line. 5 days & 5 tests later, sure enough, those lines are darker & I am pregnant.
So, follow me along our journey to growing this sweet miracle.
