Thanks for the congrats. I think I'll have dh pull out the baby clothes I have put away.
I know it's early but I am excited.
Oh I figured I was pregnant, but since it was my first pregnancy, and I was told I'd need IVF to get pregnant (and couldn't afford), I just resisted testing. The night I went into the ER, I'd been working at a pizza place and it was about 8 p.m., VERY VERY busy, and I finally just asked could I go home because I was in pain. Dh was out at his job without a phone. I got dropped home by another pizza worker and sat down and looked up "What To Expect..." 's first chapter about symptoms. I had them all! So the nurse on the phone said to come in once I said "stomach ache" and "last period six weeks ago" in the same breath. I turned out to be 5 weeks along. (They suspect ectopic.)
Have fun with the baby stuff. I loved setting up the nursery with my first- all the shower stuff!! And with my second, we did cloth and so we had all these wonderful, wrinkly, fluffy newborn flat diapers to wash and line up.
