Expecting Expecting Read All About It

On January 25 I found out I was Pregnant!!
I was 2 days late and Griff told me to just wait before I took a test...
Well I couldn't wait!
I got off work around 5pm and headed straight to All A Dollar, yes the dollar store, they carry pregnancy tests. So I thought I would take that and if it was negative I was only out $1 haha, cheap I know.
Well the whole drive home I am crossing my fingers and praying that the test would say positive. When I took the test it immediately had 2 lines I starred at my self in the mirror in disbelief and shocked. I then grabbed my purse and ran to Walmart to pick up a real Pregnancy Test, since the All A Dollar one was fake of course!! While I was at Walmart I decided to pick up some things to tell Griff incase this test was positive too. During all of this fun Griff was at the Golf Course. He calls me as I am running through the store and asks me what we should do for dinner and says he is on his way home!! I am freaking out I still had so much to do before he made his entrance... I finally get everything and get home. Griff then calls me and asks me to put some Corn Dogs in the oven he was about 10 mins from home at this point and I hadn't even gotten out of my car yet! I get inside and guess what?? The All A Dollar test wasn't fake, it was right all along. We are pregnant!!!! I start jumping up and down, wondering if I cry or shout for joy, with a huge grin on my face I frantically run through my house blowing up balloons, putting corn dogs in the oven, making the display of everything for Griff to see when he gets home, as fast as I can. Next thing I know Griff is home! He walks in.....
...with the biggest smile on his face!!!
"Are you pregnant??"
I throw my hands in the air and shout "I'm pregnant," with tears in my eyes!!
We are so excited for this fall to be here, a little nervous, but excited!!
There is so much that we still need to do to get ready and so much we want to accomplish this year before our little bundle of joy arrives.
We calculated our due date online and it came out to be October 2nd.
Our first Doctors appointment is March 6th, we will be 10 weeks, and hopefully get to hear the heart beat and find out when the actual due date will be.
4 weeks here and so happy!
I have been pretty sick this last week being 6 weeks, so sick that I could barely stand up for longer then 10 minutes without feeling very dizzy and nauseous! I had no appetite and had a hard time keeping food down. I knew that there was no way I could continue feeling like this having a standing job and feeling so sick...
I had to call my Doctor and they had to call me in some nausea pills. They have worked wonders!!! I haven't been feeling sick anymore just very tired and fat haha! I can't suck my tummy in without it hurting or being so uncomfortable. It has and will be all worth it, we knew 2012 was going to be one to never forget!!
