I had to add my two cents about all this!
Ok, so it was my first month off birth control. That means its normal to feel queezy and like you have been overdosed with benadryl, right? Well thats what I thought the whole weekend before I took the test. I went to see my grandparents and have never been more tired in all my life. I hoped that these could be signs of being pregnant, but honestly I didnt think it could be true. I drove home from their house and almost fell asleep on the road. The next day I was on the phone with my mom and had an uncalled-for reaction to something she said. I randomly started crying and she asked what the heck was wrong with me! I wasn't going to take a test that early because I did not want to get a false negative, but I couldnt resist. The tests say that the line may be lighter than the control but that was definitely not the case. A minute later and I had two very dark pink lines - (maybe that should have been a sign). I thought about waiting before I told Matt; find a way to be creative, but he was not going to be home until after 10pm! That was about 8 hours away and there is no WAY i can keep something that long. So I had to call him at work and was so excited I sounded like I was crying. That of course worried him, but when I finally got through that I was pregnant he called me back from outside his office and we got to talk about our happy news!
Our First Appointment:
Matt pretty much summed this one up. It was one of the happiest and most shocking news I have ever heard. Who would have thought, Matt and I - with no history of twins in the family- would have twins. I wanted to shout to the world but we had to wait to tell the family!
I am 13 weeks pregnant now and we have had two appointments so far. Our third is this Thursday and we will hear the heartbeats! At about 12 weeks (which is so cliche) I finally started to feel better after 7 weeks of throwing up everything I ate. I lost 4 pounds and have gained 3 back. But at least now I am eating again! We had a little get together in the neighborhood this past weekend because I was once again able to entertain. To tell you the truth it was rough for those weeks, but I am so happy I am feeling better now and have a renewed spring in my step! I feel like in the last 2 days I kind of popped - my belly got a little bigger all of a sudden... guess I still have a lot of growing to do but it makes it that much more real. :)
