Well, friends....

After 2.5 years, the words "I'M PREGNANT" have finally come out of my mouth on a few occasions. 

Check these BEAUTIFUL lines out...

On Sunday, April 15, 2012 Josh and I finally found out that I'm pregnant. 

Beta #1 (4/16/12): 61 Progesterone 10.1
Beta #2 (4/18/12): 157 Progesterone 11.6

I am taking Prometrium to help increase the progesterone levels but my doctor believes we have nothing to worry about at this point. I will have another beta on 4/27/12 just to make sure the Prometrium is doing its' job and my first appointment and ultrasound is scheduled for 2 weeks from today on Friday, May 4th.

Going by my last period, today would be 6w4d. I, however, do not believe I am that far along and I believe my betas support that belief as well. I don't think I'm any further than 5 weeks or so. I know you're asking, "well, Jenn, didn't you chart this cycle"? No. No, no I didn't and I am constantly kicking myself in the ass for it. As much as I hate to say this... we did NOTHING this cycle but have sex. No clomid, no charting, no OPKs, no timed sex... absolutely nothing.

We went ahead and took my first bump pic Monday the 16th which, as of right now, is considered 6 weeks and the day I've had the most bloat yet (and this was before dinner).

Other than bloat and some mild cramping, I've had no symptoms yet. I'd be happy with a little nausea every now and then though. Ya know... because I'm a freak like that. 

We've already told immediate family and some random best friends. We told our parents on Monday by framing them the picture below. When I handed each mom the frame, I told them that we wanted them to know there are 3 people in the picture. My mom jumped off the couch immediately while dad was a little confused. Josh's stepmom was really confused. Really, really confused. He finally said.. Tina, she's pregnant! I know his dad got it because while Tina was trying to figure it out, John was grinning from ear to ear which, by the way, is damn near impossible to make that man do.

For now, I'm going to enjoy every minute of this and try not to stress about the "what if's" even though they cross my mind frequently. Today, I am pregnant and I am already in love with this child.
