We're Pregnant! | Week 4 Bumpdate

Written Date: October 20, 2019

It still doesn't feel real, but last week we found out that we're pregnant! Based on my own calculations Baby is due the end of June right after my parent's anniversary. We will see how accurate that is when we go in and have the doctor calculate our due date.

I was nervous to tell Kevin, which just seems ridiculous now, but I didn't actually think we would get pregnant this month. We have been trying for a little less than 6 months, but I have already resigned myself to the fact that it may take a year or more to conceive. I took a pregnancy test earlier in the day, it was one of the ones that has a plus sign if you are pregnant and a minus sign if you're not. The minus sign was a darker blue and the plus part seemed faint. I was so surprised that it even slightly appeared and did not believe that meant we were actually pregnant. I was working a few hours that night, so I went into work as if nothing had happened and thought all night about what if I actually was pregnant. When I got home Kevin had already ate dinner and was wondering why I wasn't going straight to dish myself up. I told him I had to go to the bathroom. I took another test, this time digital and I saw clear as day the words "Pregnant". I still didn't believe it and was just waiting for the plus sign to disappear to a minus and the word "Not" to appear in front of the pregnant. When this didn't happen, I took them both down to Kevin and just placed them on the table in front of him. His first reaction was "is this a joke?" because I was so sure in previous weeks that this month it wouldn't have happened. We still couldn't believe it, but two tests, in the middle of the day - it was undeniable at that point.

How far along: 4 weeks
Size of baby: Poppy Sead
Must have items: Water at all times! Making sure I'm staying hydrated.
Sleep: I haven't been sleeping the greatest, but that could be related to our newly acquired dogs.
How I'm Feeling: Excited and nervous at the same time. I do not think I will be at ease until we hear the heartbeat in about a month.
Cravings: None so far. :)
Baby movement: Baby is still in the embryotic state, but I feel my uterus expanding slightly with little pinches or twinges around my abdomen.
Gender: Kevin wants a boy and I want a girl. Naturally, we are a house divided.
Challenges this week: It was challenging waiting to find out and then each day praying that the baby would continue to grow and stay healthy.
Best moment this week: Finding out we had a little blasto!! (It was still a blastocyst when we first found out.)
