Ahhh, pregnant at last

Thank you all so much for all your love, prayers and support. So as you all know now, we got the greatest Christmas present ever this year - a new baby arriving this summer!!
So, Brian bought be a pregnancy test for Christmas. I was like a little kid on Christmas Eve because I was so excited to get up and take the test. I probably only slept 2 1/2 hours total. At 5:45AM I had to pee so bad, but I was trying to wait - you know, the whole patient thing!! So finally at 6:15AM I thought my bladder was going to burst so I got up and went to the bathroom. I peed on the stick and before I even pulled it all the way out of the toilet it had already turned +!!! There was definitely NO QUESTION!! So I run back in the room and announce the news to Brian.
So I am about 6 weeks 3 days today with a due date somewhere around August 20th (my mom's birthday!). I have my first ultrasound and OB appointment set for January 15th. The last two pregnancies I was a nervous wreck at this point. I would worry about all the things that COULD go wrong and the pregnancy would be on my mind 24/7 - not so this time. I have such a since of peace and there are so many times where I just completely forget I'm pregnant! What a huge difference! I can only say that this is because I have such great friends and family who have prayed for me so much and we have an AWESOME GOD!! Please continue to pray for us, we're definitely going to need it and you have all done such a great job so keep it up!
So far the only way I can tell I'm pregnant is that I take 11 pills a day instead of the 5 I was taking with TTC. I have felt wonderful and I really can't complain! My complexion has looked the best it has in over a year. And the best part...no more clomid!!
Thanks again for all your love, support and prayers - you guys are the BEST!!! Thanks for the comments and well wishes and for including Brian - I know that makes him feel like he's a part of it all too - too often the poor guys get left out - I'm so guilty of that.

YAAAY!!! Congrats!
I still think the name "Bailey" would be appropriate, if you get my drift :)

Actually if my dates are right then Baileys came after the fact - maybe the name should be Oliver from the Soft Rose Wine from Oliver Winery that I drank at Thanksgiving!

I am SO exicted!! I have already shopped for the NEW BABY. . .

Hilton Head is great for that.

Oliver or Rose...hmmm...perhaps Oliver AND Rose! Clomid has been known to do that...just ask my niece and nephew Julie & Jordan!

We're happy for you and won't stop praying!
