Positives everywhere!

I called the doctors this morning and it was absolutely amazing/crazy to call and say "hey we got a positive on our end!", I went for blood work during my hour break at work, boy was that wonderful. I passed the other pee test! And got 5 vials drawn and they said they'd call if anything was abnormal and to just go schedule my first appointment! It was so crazy I had to ask, "So I'm guessing I passed the pee test?", it still just seems so unreal and I know it will for awhile. My 8 week appointment is August 4th and my 10 week with the OB is August 19th. It's crazy how fast time is going to go, I was just telling Skyler how we'll be married for two years on August 16th, and now it'll be our 2 yrs and the 10 week mark! I'm already half-way through week 4. Which is such a big deal to us.

To be honest we're scared, scared that it's not going to work out, I feel like crap and I heard if you're sick then you'll be great (not saying that if you're not sick you won't be) I just don't know what to think right now. Keep us in your prayers!

So, I saw this on Ashley's blog and I know its so early, but I had to do it! I absolutely love how she devotes her Mondays to being updates! It's so cute! I want to do that also, but I'm sure it'll be between Thursdays and Mondays. Also Ashley has been such a blogger to follow! I started following her earlier this year around the time we called to see the doctors, and she has truly been an inspiration to keep trying and to stay positive. (I know only 1 person follows this but hopefully someday there will be more, so if you are reading this add me for starters and go check her blog out!)

How far along? 4 weeks and 4 days!

Maternity clothes?
Not yet, though I did wear a maternity shirt yesterday that I accidentally bought last year, so that's the only thing!

Stretch marks? No. BUT my boobs are so swollen, now they aren't very small to begin with (34D) so I'm nervous to see what they get to!

Sleep? I'm tired all the time! But I swear once I lay down for even just a minute I can't sleep, but I'm sure it's due to the excitement!!

Best moment this week?Finding out we are pregnant! (Our 18th cycle worked!!)

Movement? None.

Food cravings? Ummm... anything really, just nothing sweet, I've lost my love for chocolate, though right now I'm drinking a chocolate milk :)

Gender? Hmm... we'd love a girl! but a boy will be just as wonderful!

What I miss? Nothing at all! I'd like to say I miss not worrying about whats going on down there, the last couple days I've been noticing everything body wise, and some of the light cramps worry me nearly to death! I know it's normal but still!

What I'm looking forward to? Being able to see him/her.

Weekly Wisdom: Make sure your honey is close to home when you test so you can celebrate together instead of having to call him at the drill and let him know and wait ALL day to be able to see him.

Milestones: Finally getting our positive! And the positive at the dr's also.

Emotions: Excited! Nervous, thankful, hungry :) lol. Everything.

I know no one really cares to see my uncovered tummy but believe it or not I want to. I want to make sure I do a good job at documenting everything every week! I want to really experience this and be able to look back and read this blog and remember as much as possible (though I do doubt this will be hard to forget)

Just had to share this:

Your Baby
Your microscopic embryo is already hard at work this week creating the placenta, umbilical cord and the basics of his or her body.

The embryo is now made of three layers that will transform into the different parts of your baby's body. The endoderm, or inner layer, will become your baby's intestines, liver and lungs. The middle layer, or mesoderm, will become your baby's heart, sex organs, muscles, bones, and kidneys, and the ectoderm, or outermost layer, will develop into your baby's hair, skin, eyes, and nervous system. Believe it or not, your baby is already starting to look like a tiny little being (not necessarily a
human being) complete with a head, a mouth opening and a primitive brain and heart.

By the end of this week, your baby measures about 1/25 inch long, about the size of a period (like the one at the end of this sentence, not the one you just missed).

It's pretty neat to think that all of that is going on!
