Hello everyone! This is my first pregnancy as well, and I am overjoyed! I am 31 years old, and my husband Jason and I have been chomping at the bit to start a family so we decided in February to stop using the pill. We'd been using using the rhythm method until May when we decided to tempt fate, and pow! Just like that. I am still slightly in shock about how easy it was.
We've been together for a year and a half, but were only married on June 5th, so we found out during our honeymoon (and one day before my 31st birthday) that I am pregnant. It was quite a week for us!
So far my only symptoms have been slight nausea (knock wood) and just a bit of fatigue and lower back achiness. I am only 3 weeks post-conception (so 5 weeks pregnant), so I do know that the nausea might get worse, but I am keeping my fingers crossed. My breasts have also gotten fuller and are tender, but no stinging or tingling yet. They look like 19-year old breasts, though, so we're both enjoying that.
It looks like there are quite a few other military wives; Jason is in the Navy, and currently stationed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, OH. Thankfully he is no longer in line to be deployed, so he will definitely be here for the birth and first two years of baby's life.
I look forward to spending the next nine months getting to know y'all.
