I think it has finally sunk in

It has been three days since I got my BFP and I think it is finally starting to become reality. I am thrilled and terrified at the same time. I was certain that this cycle was a bust when my temp dropped dramatically on Tuesday morning. I allowed myself to have a pity party all day and come to terms with the fact that Cycle #10 was right around the corner. Then on Wednesday morning my temp spiked back up and when I told Mr. Hopeful Bud this he said I should go POAS. I knew I had a couple digital tests but didn't want to waste them on a BFN so I dug through a drawer and found one regular HPT. Ran down stairs because we have only one bathroom right now due to home remodeling. The second line showed up almost immediately and I barely made it safely up the stairs because I was running and shaking so badly. When I found Mr. Hopeful Bud and said "We're pregnant!" His initial response was "Oh good!" Then we hugged and he told me how ecstatic he was and "I knew your boobs were getting bigger." And they have, I already need new bras. That is scary! I have since taken two digital tests to confirm and BFPs on both! I can't wait to meet Little Hopeful Bud. I have not stopped thanking God for this amazing blessing. We have told parents, grandparents and a few close friends and family. I know that a lot of people wait until they are out of the first trimester but neither I nor Mr. Hopeful Bud are good at keeping a secret, especially when we are so excited and want to shout it from the roof. We also decided to share the news because God forbid "if" something was to happen we would definitely need the support and love of our family to get through it.

I called my doc to make an appointment and she doesn't want me to come in until I'm 8 weeks, so October 26th is our Early Pregnancy appointment. It can't come soon enough. I can't wait to hear Little Hopeful Bud's heart beat. I can only imagine that it is going to be the most beautiful sound I have ever heard.

So as of today, I am 4 weeks and 4 days pregnant. Little Hopeful Bud will be joining us around June 10, 2010. As of right now the only pregnancy symptom I have is swollen breasts. Morning sickness stay away . . . at least until we get our upstairs bathroom completed, which should be this weekend.

I pray that those of you that are still hoping and praying for a BFP that it comes soon.

Congratulations :)

Even though I am TTA, I have been keeping up with this blog for a few weeks. I am learning the lingo as well as the ups and downs of TTC so that we can be fully prepared for when it's our turn to try... we still have a ways to go before we do start, but due to my history with PCOD I am already trying to learn more about my body and fertility.

Congrats again! I will be looking forward to keeping up with your adventures.
