Our Family of Three

I went to my friend, Autumn's, house yesterday to see her beautiful new baby! She was adorable! anyway... When I went over, Autumn said how weird it is to say she has a family of three now. So she is my inspiration for the title today! :D Thanks Autumn.

So, recent testing and such have brought us to the point we are at right now. We went to an appointment to follow up on the tests to see what was going on, and the doctor suggested we have a pregnancy test. So we had the blood drawn, thinking nothing of it, but secretly crossing our fingers that it was positive. At about 4 I recieved a phone call informing me that my test was positive! I'm PREGNANT! I was really excited, but I had no idea how to respond to the test because I didn't know what was next on the agenda, so I waited quietly for the lady to continue talking. She put me on hold to schedule me for an appointment, and for what seemed like 5 minutes I cried. I was so happy! I was scheduled for an ultrasound the next day, and I was given a perscription to pick up that evening. I wasn't sure how to tell John the news, so I wrote him a card, told him I'ld be home late, and to read the card.
When I got home, John was watering the garden, not reading the card... I asked him if he read the card and he said no. Somehow I wasn't surprised... I told him to read the card. He told me to read it to him, and I didn't want to!!! Finally he figured out that I had news and asked is there something I need to tell him. I nodded my head and he just hugged me so tight! We went inside ad read the card together, signed, Mommy and Baby.
Since that day, we've been doing a lot of planning. We can't choose a name, but I don't think I can decide until after I know the sex of it... Too many options! We purchased a crib and diaper table... Oh and we started cleaning out our junk room to start the nursery.
Everything is so exciting and so new! We never know what to expect, but we're excited to see what happens!
OH! My current due date is December 28, but my doctor's thinking of having baby out before Christmas. We'll see what happens! :) Today I am 13 weeks, ALMOST in my second trimester. Everything is great, I'm feeling rather well... minus the occasional nausea, and John is ecstatic and trying to be as supportive as he can.
That is our story today, "our family of three."
