Our Little Gummy Bear!

Having this little sweet child inside of me is the best feeling in the whole world! Wow! I was sooooo extremely nervous to go into the appointment. I had the biggest fear that something would be wrong...worrying that we wouldn't hear the heart. I had my hubby say a prayer with me before we went into the appointment. She did the ultrasound and there it was...our little gummy bear! And we were able to see and hear a strong heart 158bpm! It was incredible...and of course, I was emotional...but, was my sweetheart! It was the most amazing feeling in the world! Wow! And we were told I was 7w 5d! We were even given pictures of our little gummy bear to take home! What an amazing day!

After the appointment we headed over to Souper Salad for a YUMMY lunch...I love me some salad! an added little bonus to the day, afterwards, we were able to go down to ASU and register my hubby to graduate! Woohoo! Look at this cutie...

That's right...after a long, long journey of trying for almost 2 years, lots of medication, tests, a surgery...WE ARE EXPECTING! But, more importantly than all of the medical steps we took to get to this point...we took many spiritual steps. A lot of prayers, fasting, trips to the temple including all of those from our family members on our behalf. We truly are so blessed!

Early morning of September 29th, 2010. Several weeks prior to this date I had taken a pregnancy test and to no surprise it was negative. However, with me still being late a few weeks later, we decided I should take another one. Of course, I was prepared for the same...negative. To our complete surprise we looked down at that little test and saw a POSITIVE SIGN! Standing in our little bathroom, I could not believe my eyes! I just couldn't believe it! It was the most incredible feeling! Crying, excitement, squeezing my sweetheart, enjoying that moment together...everything bundled into one little piece of time! For the longest time I had it all planned out how I would want to tell my parents when I finally and if I did get pregnant. Well, all those ideas were thrown out the window that morning! I was too excited to hold off and not say anything! So, there I am at about 6:45 in the morning, calling my family before I headed to work! I just can't even describe how I felt that day. And just to be sure, the next morning...I think I woke up around 3:30 or 4:00 in the morning... I decided to take another test. And again, POSITIVE! That Friday I went into the fertility specialist's office to get my blood drawn...which, checks the HCG levels and confirms pregnancy. They called me that afternoon saying that my HCG level was great and indeed I am pregnant. Those words were music to my ears! It was official! Well, after talking with the lady about the results, we scheduled an appointment for this coming Friday to have our first ultrasound! I still can't even believe it! AMAZING!

Both positive tests!

My sweetheart bought me roses! This picture is taken on the day we found out for sure the bloodwork was positive! :-)
