WOW! Thank you so much everyone! It does feel surreal, but I am taking it easy and trying to focus on relaxing and being healthy…not nervous ;p So nice to hear from so many supportive women who have been through this!!!

Congratulations!! Try not to stress, easier said than done I know. Take lots of pics of yourself as you grow and document all of your feelings, craving and experiences. I love looking back to when I was pregnant it was such an amazing experience. 9 months seems like FOREVER but it flies by and when the baby is born time really flies! Do your research on doctors like any other, profession there are good ones and bad ones. I wish you the best of luck! 🙂

Congrats! I have about 7 weeks to go and had the realization last night that WE MADE LIFE. It’s crazy. 🙂

Congratulations! It takes a while for it to feel REAL. I don’t think I really believed it till my first ultrasound. Of course it always seems like FOREVER between doctor’s appointments too! Try to keep from stressing – the only thing you can really do is try to take good care of yourself – I was a nervous wreck starting out but some of it has subsided. 🙂

Congratulations! I remember what it was like when I first found out I was pregnant. I was completely freaking out and thought it must be some kind of weird dream.
Seriously, and I know this sounds weird, I was expecting to find out that I wasn’t pregnant all along until the time I actually delivered and then after.
It’s going to be a journey, and it’s going to feel crazy surreal at times. All you can do is take it as it comes and breath.

Congrats! The best thing I did was journal the whole experience. It calmed me and I think Chloe may get a kick out of it later in life! Enjoy every second, it goes really quick! And soon your little one will be in your arms! And then time flies!!

I think we’re baby twins 😉 My husband and I also were TTC for 7 months, and just found out that I’m officially pregnant yesterday! I’m 4 weeks, 6 days now. Same story, got the faint positive, had a heart attack, pulled myself off the floor then took 4 more tests. All positive! I had my first prenatal on Monday (which made things all official), and get to go back in early January.
So much congratulations to you both! It’s so exciting.
