First positive test! We had been trying, so I was not so patiently waiting for a positive sign. I had no symptoms at this point, and knew it was probably too early to test, but I couldn't wait! I had been charting everything, so I knew exactly when I could get my earliest positive sign. I had a cheap test, and was thrilled when I saw two lines! I still didn't tell the husband, because I wanted to be sure.
Two days later, I had bought a more expensive test. It was still positive! Definitely pregnant. At this exact moment, I was thinking "we are absolutely insane for having a third child". I still think we're crazy...
I finally told Nellie a few days later. I asked him if he was going to have any vacation days available in late August or early September, and his response?"Are you kidding me?!" He thinks we're crazy for having a third child every single day!
The first trimester was great! I had nausea all of two times, and I was mostly tired, but that comes along with chasing after two wild boys. My biggest complaint was just a general feeling of 'blah' and feeling a little like I had a GI bug. Thankfully, nothing was bad enough to keep me from running after the boys or clueing anyone in to the fact that I was pregnant.
I didn't have any specific cravings or aversions that I can think of. All in all, the first trimester was very smooth sailing! My first appointment with our OB wasn't until I was 8 weeks along.
First view of the nugget at 8 weeks and 4 days. The baby was measuring 8 weeks exactly, which was right in line with all of my charting. The boys went to my appointment with us, and they weren't that impressed.
