Entry: Baby Journal: Surprise!! Apr 14, 2008

Yep!  That's two blue lines you see up there!

I just found out today that I'm pregnant.  I went to bed last night feeling very dizzy.  After Saturday's crappy race (I was tired, I was hungry and wanted to throw up, just generally not my race self), I just figured that I hadn't recovered, or just was a result of not eating right.

Last night, sleeping was a mess.  I woke up dizzy, like the room was spinning, several times, and had just a rough night of it in general.  I got up when Matt did this morning because I had two doctor's appointments to tend to today.  Matt saw that I was feeling less than stellar this morning.  I told him I was still feeling dizzy for some reason.  He joked and said he hoped I wasn't pregnant.

After he left, I looked into my everything pregnancy book, and started going over some symptoms.  I had taken a test three days ago, and it was negative, so it didn't urge me right away to go pee on the stick.  No where in there did it say dizziness.

I figured, why not.  It would explain a lot.  So I grabbed a cup, peed, and tested.

All of the sudden, there was a line that had never once appeared before.

I called my best friend and left her and urgent voicemail to call me, then called my doctor's office to cram in a last minute lunch appointment so they could verify everything.

After squealing on the phone with Jess, I left the house to run all of my errands.  First stop optometrist.  More squealing, no dialating of the eyes this go around (bad for baby).

Second stop, Publix to grab a sandwich, some cold water, and some fruit to recharge before I fainted.  I grabbed orange juice too, but quickly learned that I have an aversion to it.  Over to OB/GYN.

I sat and waited, sat and waited, sat and waited.  My docter, half an hour later, flew out the door for an emergency delivery at Memorial Hospital.  Leaving me with the choice of rescheduling (ummm, no.), or waiting for a PA and tech to see me (fine.  I had never met my doc anyway and always dealt with the PA's, so no biggie).

Wait wait wait.  Pee in another cup, they confirm it's indeed positive.  But if my date of my last period is correct, 3/11, then it's going to be way too early to see anything on the ultrasound.  Still though, confirmed!!! 

They drew some blood to have it ran, then took an ultrasound, where nope, no peanut yet.  Still way to early to see.  She said it's a rare chance, but there is still a chance, that it might be a chemical pregnancy, where my body has fooled itself into thinking it's pregnant and thus exhibits all symptoms, sans baby.  So I'm going again in two days, more blood, and again in 10 days, another ultrasound.

But still!!!!!  OMG!!!  I'm so excited.  Matt has no idea.  Only you and Jessica know.  So shhhhhhhh, no squealing.  But you know my email address :-)  Finally.  The time has come, and now, my other friend won't be pregnant alone.  Hooray!  It totally worked out for the best.  I probably won't even tell our families until I get the first ultrasounds back (of which, I'll obnoxiously post).  This blog can finally be what it was always meant to be in the first place.... life and plans.

Now I'm off to clean the house before Matt turns up, and to get my stuff ready to go back to work tomorrow.
