More On Little Baby G

We are having a baby :) 

First off, I must thank everyone who left some love here and sent some lovely wishes. Brian and I are so over the moon with excitement but we are both very nervous so all the love and positive wishes really help me feel a little more at ease. Plus, I heard a loud but fast heartbeat on Friday. That was amazing! It's the milestones like that one that make me feel more secure with what is happening to us. 

So here is a bit more on Baby G.

I guess it all started when I was working out like a nut. Towards the end of April my trainer measured me and my inches went up. I was so ticked off but couldn't figure out why. My chest and hips had increased and I just brushed it off. That weekend Brian and I went on our 1st anniversary mini vacation. While Brian and I were on our mini vacation I was feeling a bit off. I couldn't place it but I knew I didn't feel like myself. Once we arrived home I asked Brian to pick me up a pregnancy test  while he was out. I wasn't late but I just had a feeling. I had lost 2 pregnancies before so I do know what it feels like to feel a bit different. So when I was a day late I took the test and had a negative result. I felt defeated. After losing 2 babies last year and trying for over 9 months a negative result broken my heart a little more each time.

Several days came and went and still not monthly visitor. After a negative result in April I wasn't going to try again a few weeks later but while having a glass of wine and catching up on trashy Bravo TV I realized I was REALLY LATE. I had a spare test in the house. I was alone and bored. Brian was working out with my best friend's husband. Took the test and those 2 little lines were bright from the very second I looked at. I immediately called my best friend, 3 times, since she didn't pick up. When I finally got a her she was thrilled but couldn't make a sound. My husband was working out with her husband at their home.

Later on that night when Brian finally returned home I was already in bed. I rolled over and just blurted out "We were having a baby". His response "wow". We are not too exciting!  Poor Brian acted and looked like a deer in the headlights for the first few weeks after that announcement. It's so nice he is finally getting comfortable with the idea of having a baby. I can understand where he is coming from as well. My best friend, and a mom of 2, congratulated us and quickly followed that up "Welcome to worrying. You will worry every second, every day for the rest of your life." I swear she is right. I worry constantly. I can't even imagine the worry after our baby is born.
