A late Christmas Suprise!


December 26, 2010- 7am

At 7am, after a long night of seeing stars and feeling terrible, I decided to take a pregnancy test. Since my cycles are soo extremely irregular, taking a pregnancy test was never such a big deal. This morning felt no different. I took the test and went about getting ready to go for my morning run around the block. I brushed my teeth. I got dressed. Right before I left the bathroom, I grabbed the HPT and was half way to throwing it into the trash, when I realized there was no "not" in front of the pregnant. Hmm.... odd. Well, maybe its broken. Took two more tests, both confirmed the same thing. I started shaking. Unknown to many, but we had been trying to conceive, but personally. I didn't think I was capable due to some issues I had been having. Trying to conceive and actually being pregnant are soooo different! I ran into the bedroom and woke up a sleeping bear (Adam) and shoved the stick under his nose. He looked really bewildered. I dont think it was any secret, that Adam has had "baby fever" for a while.  He constantly talked about having a baby. He got excited going to go shop for friends babies (a little too excited, and luckily, many of our friends have been recipients of this overwhelming drive to purchase baby items). It took Adam a minute to realize what I was really telling him, before he groggily said "Thats great honey." Another minute passed and woke up a little bit more and he jumped out of bed and gave me a big hug. He was sooo happy.

Im excited for this baby, but like I said, trying to get pregnant and actually being pregnant are two different things. This is going to take some getting used to.

What is going to happen to the horses?

Will I have to give up my business and any career aspirations I ever have?

Im so overwhelmed with EVERYTHING I have to do on a daily basis, how am I going to juggle having a baby too?!?!?!

I know its taboo to be anything but overwhelmingly excited about being pregnant, but Im writing this ti let other mommies-to-be let them know they are not alone if they feel the same way. And why shouldn't you feel this way? Taking on a baby is a MAJOR life changing event! Its natural to feel a little scared and unsure as to how you will measure up as a mommy.

Needless to say, I am still excited. I am looking forward to the next chapter in Adam and my life together. We are going to start finishing the 3rd/4th level so that it can become Adam's new office area/fitness area/theater room, so we can designate the 2nd floor  as the kids area. I am looking forward to decorating the babies room (Bunny themed of course!) . Adding a new member to our family (yes, we count our critters as our family)!

Side note- Luckily I had been tracking my ovulation and put the date of conception at December 14th, which means I am due around the first week of September, more specifically, September 6th. The day before Adams (and my dad's) birthday.

What is going to happen to the horses? - You can keep the horses and I know you have buddies that will gladly ride them when you're too pregnant to ride safely.

Will I have to give up my business and any career aspirations I ever have? - NO WAY! There are millions of working moms out there who raise beautiful people. You can too!

Im so overwhelmed with EVERYTHING I have to do on a daily basis, how am I going to juggle having a baby too?!?!?! - You'll figure it out. Your priorities will shift a little and some things will have to be passed to Adam. THAT'S OKAY! Don't be afraid or ashamed to ask for help. You can't to it all.

I am so excited for you! My one and only (maybe) unsolicited piece of advice - keep a journal (you are with this blog) and transfer it to a book for your baby. I used blurb.com and transferred my blog to make a book. It is awesome looking back at it and reading all the emotions I experienced while pregnant. I'm glad I have it to share with Michela. I am in the process of making a post baby book for her with my blog entries now.
