Unfortunately, there wasn't much time to rejoice. Of course I called my sister and mom, but I had to head to work and then on to the retreat. I wanted so badly to go to the doctor to confirm all of my hopes. I had to wait a week and a half for that to happen. On August 31, I had my first doctor's appointment. I was so excited! Yep, I was pregnant! It was the best feeling in the world, especially since I had just gotten home from my grandmother's funeral. After this appointment, I told Caroline, Michelle, and Trish (three girlfriends from Harding) and also told April, Laurel, and Katie (three girlfriends in Auburn). But I was still afraid to tell anyone else. I just didn't want it to go wrong. I haven't really felt all that pregnant. Sure I have been a little sick to my stomach, but not throwing up. I haven't been overly tired or emotional (though Matt may argue against that). The only symptom that I have felt is hunger. And yes, I eat whatever I want! Unfortunately I don't crave sweets. Anyways, back to what I was saying. I was scared that it wasn't true because I felt pretty good. But at last, Friday I had my first ultrasound! I got to hear the heart beat, and the baby even moved a little! It was by far the coolest thing I have ever seen.
To think that I have a human being growing inside of me! Crazy awesome! God is so good!!! And yes there is only one. I was a little concerned at first that there would be more since I was on fertility drugs, but nope! Just one, which is what I have been praying for. :)
