We're Pregnant

Hooray! Tim and I are expecting baby #2. We just found out on Sunday (July 8th). I'd had been at a 26 day cycle for about 7 months except for last month which was 28...So, on Sunday I had gotten to 29 days and was thinking I'd been so tired this week and a little nauseous. I headed over to Shoppers and then we all ate lunch. I took the test while Tim and Lauren were finishing theirs and fully expected to see a negative sign....2 PINK LINES!!!! We're pregnant!!!! I couldn't believe it - this was our first month of trying :) We were soooo surprised and excited! I couldn't stop crying all day...hormones, I guess!

Later that afternoon, we headed over to both of our parents houses. Lauren was wearing a bright pink shirt that I had wrote on "I'm going to be a big sister". Both of our parents were surprised and happy! They knew as well that we had just started trying.

It feels very strange this time as we have decided to wait for a while to share the good news. With my pregnancy with Lauren, I had some spotting at the beginning which they said was we just thought we'd wait a while. The only people that know are our parents and siblings. I'm dying to tell someone!!!!!

Overall, I'm feeling OK...I don't remember feeling this nauseous with Lauren. The heat makes me feel sick - I'm hoping that being due in March this time will save me from swelling in my feet and ankles. I'm still really tired and can't make it through the day without a nap....oh well - napping is good :)

Will write again in a couple weeks - I see my DR. on July 30th to review my bloodwork and stuff.
Love, Hollie
