OMG. Not sure how to even act right not because I am in SHOCK. Darling Husband and I were planning to start TTC in Sept/Oct. Well, in a random night a few weeks ago, that plan flew out the window and we didn’t use our handy dandy pull out method, LOL. I thought it was no big deal because I thought I was getting ready to start my period… Well, my period always takes FOREVER to get here so I didn’t think twice when it was taking its sweet time… I have had a few symptoms like sharp shooting pains in my right breast last week (but, it was only one day!!) and then yesterday all day long I was so.freaking.irritated with everyone… I was cramping so I thought it was just good old fashioned PMS. I woke up at 5:45 AM and had this overwhelming feeling of “I need to take a pregancy test”…. Not my ideal time to 1) wake up on a Saturday or 2) do something as potentially life-changing as a pregnancy test can be, but knowing the importance of FMU, I took a test…. IT’S POSITIVE! I am SHOCKED right now! My Darling Husband is still asleep and I didn’t want to wake him up since it’s Saturday and normally I’d be sleeping in right along with him, so he doesn’t know yet. It would be different if we were actively TTC, then I am sure he’d want me to wake him up…

@simpleandchic I know! I have been poking around this site for what seems like forever so that I could learn about all the different things (charting, temping, OPK tests, etc) that we would need to be prepared to do. I literally was just about to buy one of those kits with the 25 tests and 25 ovulation tests… because I thought I’d better go ahead and start trying to figure out when I’m ovulating, etc…. I am just really surprised right now. I am kind of bummed though, because I had hoped to slim down about 15lbs before conceiving… Oh well, I guess I can still tone up and I’ll definitely be adopting way healthier habits (eating and otherwise) now.

Thanks for the support you guys! I 1/2 way let him wake up, then asked if he was awake… He asked why… and I told him because I need to talk to you, but I need you to be awake… His eyes got real big, like he knew, and he asked if I took a “birth control test” LOL … I said, “No, but I took a pregnancy test and it was positive.” He is excited 🙂

I am sort of terrified of that happening to me because I’m not ready yet, but it sounds like this is what you guys want! How are you feeling about it?
