I just thought this was so funny, i had to tell you guys. I had a problem with waiting until the end of the month to see a doctor since i thought i was pregnant, and didnt know how far along. So they were nice enough to call me when they had a cancellation. I went in, and this doctor was really nice. And he asked me "you dont know how far along you are?" and i said "well, no, my cycles have been kinda messed up, and i just wasnt paying attention".

He did an exam and said "oh wow, you are WAY pregnant". And i said "UH??" and he said "i think you are like 10 or 11 weeks along. I want to schedule you for a sonogram next week and we can find out exactly!"

ROFL, well, so much for me and LaLa land. He says i am "way pregnant". LOL, my husband was like "how can you be 10 or 11 weeks along and just NOT know you were pregnant?? isnt that something you see on some daytime talk show??"

ROFL, so, i thought i would share the funny story with you. Have a good weekend you guys!

Hey, that's nothing! I didn't know I was preggers with Eva until I was showing. Actually, that's basically how I figured it out. I wasn't sick, hadn't had a cycle in almost a year and felt great! When my pants suddenly stopped fitting I kinda went "Um, Huston, we have a problems" LOL.

Peace,

Lol, i have heard of women not knowing until they went into labor. That sounds amazing to me. I am usually TRYING to get pregnant so i usually test the DAY my cycle is late. But over the last 5 years, we have had so many disappointments, and fertility tries, that i just didnt think anything of it this time. I mean, i am "always" late. My cycle seems to run anywhere for 30 to 45 days normally. So it was only after 3 weeks that Mark started raising his eyebrows. Well, if i am 10 or 11 weeks, that means i had a cycle while pregnant. Because i personally would know if i didnt have one for 3 months. My head wasn't in the clouds THAT far. LOL

Well, i think i am finally starting to get into baby mode. Started reading some baby magazines, and just in the 3 years since Catie was born, they have come out with so many new toys and gadgets and the monitors are so much better. We will need new car seats and clothes. So, it is finally starting to hit and i am starting to get excited.
