Hi ladies,

I haven't checked in for a few weeks. Lots has happened, to say the least. Well, we are officially pregnant. I am 6 weeks tomorrow. I thought I broke a bone in my foot about 3 weeks ago. I went to have it x-rayed and of course they did a pregnancy test, but it came back negative 3 days before AF was to arrive. With Af a no-show the morning we were leaving for Labor Day weekend, I took a test and a very faint line appeared.

Went to the doctor yesterday and it was confirmed. I am sooo tired it is unbelievable. So look out for the urge to nap once you start trying, that was my first sign!!! No m/s (yet) and have been really gassy. Sorry if this is TMI, but I can fart way better than DH right now!!!

Our dive vacation has turned into a snorkel vacation for me. We leave on October 13th for Cancun. Hopefully, the hurricanes will all be gone by then.

Wishing you all good luck with TTC. We got really "lucky" as we wern't even trying yet, I guess it was just time for us, not getting any younger. I am due on May 12th, as far as we can tell.

We will be telling our parents this weekend, and I am scared to death. Everytime I think about telling them I start to tear up. Hopefully, it is just the hormones talking. I feel like I have reverted back to being a teenager, you would think at the age of 29 I wouldn't be nervous, but I just feel like I am screaming "We had unprotected sex" to my parents.

Hi Laura, CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS!!!!! That's so cool. Hopefully you don't get any of the m/s. I didn't :D It was nice to be envied by all my other pg friends :D And, I can relate to the telling your parents thing. It was slightly awkward admitting to my dad that I had sex with my husband. haha. But, it got easier. :D Have a wonderful pregnancy!!!!
