Holy Shit! What have we done?!

I’m not going to lie…that very thought passed through my mind after I saw those two pink lines.  Not like, What have we done? Can we take it back?…just like, This IS what you wanted, this is very real.  Wow.  So yeah, I’m sure you can gather now that I took the test and it’s POSITIVE!!  I’m excited, but I’m mainly in shock.  I was expecting the battle to be much tougher.  I’m so grateful for how relatively easy it was, and I certainly don’t take that for granted.  I know we are not in the clear though, so I’m remaining cautiously excited.

After I posted my last entry, we left to go to Target and grabbed the tests there.  I laughed my ass off when my husband freaked about the cost of  “just three!!” tests and told me, “you better wait until you’re really sure…like until your period is 5 days late.  That’s a lot of money to waste.”  Ahh…the joys of loving a tightwad 😉  I was too chicken shit to rush home and test right away, and I was actually thinking I’d just put it off until tomorrow so we went to grab some groceries.  That was when I became completely CONVINCED I was pregnant.

Immediately upon stepping into Whole Foods I could smell EVERYTHING.  I asked my husband, “Do you smell those strawberries? What about that pineapple?”  I could smell the tomatoes, the rice in the rice bags, but the perfume on the older lady picking out the potatoes is what killed me.  I thought I would vomit right there in the middle of the aisle.  It’s like all of the sudden, overnight, I awoke to find that I am now living in the body of a Bloodhound.  Hmmm…I am looking for a new job…do you think the search and rescue squad would hire me?

So now on to more waiting.  We have to wait to call the Dr.’s office on Monday to go in for a blood test.  Then we have to wait for the first ultrasound, but the hardest will be waiting to tell close family and friends.  I really would like to hold off until week 12 or so to let everyone know.  Luckily, we pretty much live in seclusion many, many hours away from any of them, so it should be easy to keep the secret – IF my big mouth can hold out.  I think I will allow myself the luxury of telling one friend who lives in Japan.  She’s been my BFF since the first day at my new school in 7th grade – I think I owe it to her ; )

    Congrats! I just got a BFP on the 16th, so I’m totally relating to this entry! Especially the smelling EVERYTHING – isn’t that so weird? It was my first clue that something different was going on. So happy for you!

  3. I knew it! So happy for you! Looking forward to comparing notes and hearing about your progress!

    Even though it was fun to read about your obsessions. 🙂

  4. Congrats! Boy that was fast, you guys must have been busy!!! 🙂 Since you are a reader I recommend What to expect when you are expecting and The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy. Great books. Oh, and keep a journal. I still go back and read mine to my son and he loves it and it still makes me cry. Congrats again!!!

  5. Wow! Congrats!!!! I never saw your post on the Nest, so I was clueless! Oh, I’m so happy for you. Your symptoms are very similar to what mine were too (I just got my BFP on 8/13). I could kill all the old ladies with their perfume! 🙂

    H&H 9 months! I look forward to reading all about your pregnancy journey!

  6. OMG Congratulations! I went on vacation and just checked in on your blog and saw this post! Wising you a happy and healthy 9 months :o)

  7. Congrats!! I’m still reading your posts but so far am very excited for you. And I love your sense of humor about everything you’ve had me cracking up and I’ve really needed that since I started ttc. I am 22 dpo and 3 $ tree tests have been negative YET; I have very sensitive Nips, I had some cramping last week that had me running to the bathroom thinking AF was coming, I have that tired thing and the smell thing… I’m glad you mentioned that. Same thing happened to me when I was getting groceries yesterday. I could smell everything! And some guy walked past me and I swear his body spray made me cough to me it was very strong and he was at least 4 feet away from me. Just about a week and a half ago I kept smelling something bad near our hallway hubby didn’t smell it. I had him move everything cause I was sure something had gone bad or died. He moved the fridge and there it was, a dead mouse. Hubby could not smell it! There’ve been other things I can smell that he can’t. And he goes “See, sensitive to smells.” He’s sure I’m pregnant but I’m not as certain because of those 3 tests I’ve taken being negative.

  8. I’ve been reading your blog for a couple months, and now I’m catching up on the old posts. I love hearing about Scott cause I can totally relate!

  9. I am reading back to get the whole story and am struck by how similar mine was to yours.
    I had the same OH shit moment… and the… “I can’t take it back!” moment… and then the smells… OH MY GOD, the smells.

    My husband was still smoking at the time. I was INSIDE the house, with windows closed and I could smell him smoking. I yelled outside… put that thing OUT!

    how funny!
    Oh yeah… and I took five tests before I believed it.
