Expect the Unexpected

I want to start this post by saying "I'm sorry"!! I have neglected you for so long but with good reason.
While starting this journey in Wedding planning we never thought in a 100 years that we would be dealing with a curve ball like this one. Granted it is really well received curve ball but very UNEXPECTED!! At the end of November, while B was up north working, I started getting very sick. I didn't think much of it but it lasted a really long time. I went to the doctors to get checked out and they gave me medicine for the symptoms I was having. I went home and was still not feeling better after having this medication. Some thing was not right and I started thinking back over the past couple of months and could not remember the last time Aunt Flow came for a visit... this is not unusual in my life but there were other things that led me to take a pregnancy test. While waiting for the results a little blue line (-) appeared in one of the two windows. I looked at the box and it said negative.... then I looked back at the stick and another blue line appeared this time it made a cross (+) I was confused... what did this mean?? I verified the box and it said "any resemblance of a cross means you are pregnant". By this time the cross was no longer light blue it was BRIGHT blue. In the 'second' verification window there was another line appearing and by this time I was thinking, could I really be pregnant??? I was pretty much in denial because I had convinced my self that there must have been something in the medication I was taking for it to come out this way. I was happy with this conclusion I had come to and I went to bed. I slept like a baby... no pun indented!!

The next day I woke up and thought it would probably be a good idea to let B in on my revelation last night so I called him at work and told him what had happened and he was 100% supportive. I went back to the doctors office and they did another urine test - well the results were the same and I was definitely pregnant. I was still not convinced that my eggs were that good and B's swimmers actually made it to the egg in order to produce such a wonderful gift. So I made the doctor take a blood test to be 100% sure that I was pregnant. All I could think about was I'm going to be a mom and how in the hell am I going to fit in to my wedding dress???

I called B to tell him the good news and we were both a bit shocked and happy all at the same time. We had a lot of decisions to make in the next little while that would effect so many things. Would we change the wedding date? Will we still have a large wedding and invite all of our friends and family? So many things to digest and on top of this I could pee every 2 hours and sleep at 3pm every single day.

B was absolutely amazing through this whole process. He has been nothing but supportive and caring and everything I could ask for. I'm one lucky girl to be marrying such a wonderful man.

Check back in soon to hear about all the trials and tribulations that I'm going through planning a wedding and getting ready for a new baby.

Thank you for being patient with me while I get back on my feet and I'll write soon.
