The Journey Begins...

This week has been a whirlwind of emotions (in part due to my ever-fluctuating hormones!). I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that we're going to have a baby - that life is forming inside my womb! God has been so gracious to me by giving me peace and perseverance through it all and I'm ever so thankful!

One week ago today, I took an at-home pregnancy test and found out that my suspicion/hope of pregnancy was a reality! Strangely enough, I was almost positive that I was pregnant about 2 days after conception. I just had this feeling and a peace about it. We hadn't been really trying to get pregnant, but we did want children so it certainly was exciting to think that it was time for us to be parents!

This Wednesday was my first prenatal appointment. I am beyond squeamish about going to the doctor and this was the doctor visit of ALL doctor visits! Ultrasound, full pelvic exam, blood work, finger prick sugar level test... needless to say, I was nervous about going! God gave me so much peace, though. For the first time, I was going through all these procedures for my baby, not for me. It's a strange and amazing feeling. I'm beginning to see how we women can go through all of the pains (most specifically, child birth!) of having a baby... it's such a sweet experience! I really didn't understand it before now, honestly. I thought I would be a wreck going through all the pains, doctor visits, needles, etc. etc. etc., and it's still a bit overwhelming, but what a sweet reward to think that 9 months of carrying that sweet child and finally meeting him or her face to face! It's just the sweetest thing!

Thanks for reading my pregnancy blog! I'm excited to share the experiences of the greatest adventure of my life so far... the journey to mommyhood!
