And it says PREGNANT. Tee hee. It's digital, so it is done now, but I got to see it. Woohoooooo! That makes it feel so much more real. And with my numbers doubling in under 48 hours, I am ecstatic!
So, family reactions: His mom cried :) Have not spoken with my mom yet because she is on vacation, but my stepdad should have been able to tell her by now. I am sure I will here from her as soon as she is back. His dad is thrilled, as is mine, in his own way.
Sister kinda pissed me off. She said something along the lines of, "Oh, now you can experience the woes of pregnancy with me!" I pointed out I'm thrilled with any and all side effects and there are no woes here. Oddly, she didn't respond.
Sad reactions: his grandmother is suffering from dementia and it was really difficult for Hubby to talk to her when she is like this. She barely remembered who he was. My grandmother is pretty ill lately, and told me she doesn't think she will be around when Itsy/Bitsy arrive.
We got our first gift, from the neighbor whose laptop I am stealing. A black onesie that says, "Learned to rock before I could walk." LOL. So adorable. Hubby and I are going to drool tomorrow at the maternity store, Bab.ys 'R' Us, and to get me a Bella Band at Tar.get. No purchases at the first store, just allowing ourselves to drool, revel in this.
Hubby bought me a card - a "Mommy-to-be" card, and a bag full of mints for the nausea. Oh! And more gauze and tape for my PIO injections. LOL. A little gift bag. Wasn't that insanely sweet? He is SOOOO happy!
So, as I mentioned, numbers are great, and we are stoked for the u/s. Hubby is of course convinced that we are having both Itsy and Bitsy. I hope so :) Which sounds kinda crazy, but I never wanted an only child...always wanted 2, and do not want to go through this again. But I will be thrilled whatever the case to see proof on that grainy little screen.
Not so hot news...got a follow-up call and it seems my thyroid is just as excited as we are, and is now getting a little overactive. So tomorrow I start Syn.throid for the duration. It could be worse, and I'm not really worried at this point. One of the beautiful things about this process is all the testing and monitoring done very early in the process. So, it's okay.
Speaking of this process. Again, I promise, this will NOT be all I write about. It's just new, and overwhelming, and exciting. And I even feel a little bit of guilt that for us it was so quick. I know how hard it can be to read the blogs of those of us who are Pg. I have bawled over a large number of them myself. I was happy for every one of them, but I cried a bunch. And I don't want it to be hard for any of you. But it will be here...it's unavoidable. But I will strive for a good balance, I promise you that.
Loves and hugs to you all!!!
