1) Did you plan your pregnancy?

kind of - we decided to stop preventing and see what happened.

2) How long were you trying?

two days after we stopped using birth control, we conceived.

3) Were you surprised or did you just "know" it?

i was shocked. i thought it would take years to get pg. but two weeks later, my dh said "i think you're pregnant." next morning, i threw up my breakfast, went to the store, bought a pg test, and lo and behold....

4) Were you happy about it?

very.

5) Was Chinese chart right for you?

yep.

6) How did you hide it from people (mostly at work)?

i didn't go to work anymore (well, didn't take another job - i'm a contract worker).

7) How did you puke without nobody noticing?

only puked that one time (maybe one other time). otherwise, i just had debilitating fatigue - slept most of the 1st trimester.

8) What did you use for headache?

dark room, ice pack for head, heated bucky for neck and shoulders, lots and lots of water, an occassional tylenol (it didn't usually do any good, so i didn't take it).

9) When did it "sink in" that you are pregnant?

around 8/9 weeks, which was when i started having to wear maternity pants, and was also when i started weeping out of blue at the stupidest things.
