It's official I guess... we've told everyone that matters about our BFP! My brother and sister in law were the last family to know and they were very excited for us! And the Midwives called us back and I've been taken into care with them & my first appointment is January 9th!! Yay!!!! I'm very excited to see what that's going to be like.

So you can say I have been blessed because I don't have any m/s yet and I have yet to have many food aversions. I'm actually feeling quite "normal" (aka "unpregnant") except for ongoing, sporadic AF-like cramping... That's during the day. At night it's a completely different story. Even a few days, maybe a week before my BFP, I started having quite vivid dreams. Most have been in colour and most I remember after I wake up. Which is the second problem. Ever since my BFP, I find myself waking up a minimum of two, usually three or four times a night. Not to go to the bathroom, just waking up out of a dream. And I'm wide awake. As in staring at the ceiling.... It takes me anywhere from 10-30 minutes to fall asleep afterwards. So far it hasn't affected me during the day but I'm going back to work on the 2nd after the holidays and I'm wondering what this erractic sleep is going to do for me then??

Just another day....

Interestingly enough, no major PG symptoms today. A bit of cramping in the AM and I felt pretty hungry too but other than that, nothing major. Oh yes and some gas. LOL

John and I went to Home Depot today (after hitting EB and Big B Comics of course) and we now have the flooring for the nursery! We also had lunch with some good friends and (shhh, don't tell) they might be PG too!!! I hope so!! It would be so cool if they were.

I'm hoping to hear back from the midwives soon and I'm waiting with bated breath for my Jan 7th appointment. I hope that it'll make me feel just a bit less anxious... I know nothing bad is going to happen - ok I don't know for sure but whatever - but I just want some sort of confirmation that I'm PG and everything is a-ok. I'm so (irrationally) worried about miscarrying... don't know why but apparently it's normal to be worried so I'll just try and relax (if any of that makes sense whatsoever).

OK, I've finally realized what one of my big PG symptoms is.... I'm gassy. Like no one's business. Ewww gross. =P

So I made a few important phone calls today:

1 - to the GP's... I have an appointment on January 7 for my first prenatal
2 - to the Hamilton Midwives - they took my information and they said they'll call me back by the end of the week to let me know if they will take me on
3 - to my parents - they're ecstatic!! 'Nuff said. :)

Other than that, I'm feeling quite well... some cramping intermittently throughout the day but nothing else... Trying to start eating healthier.... LMAO
So I was able to hold on till just after midnight yesterday. John and I played some WoW and then decided to go to bed. Both of us were having insomnia, for different reasons I think, so I coaxed him into opening his "Xmas gift." What I had done is I wrapped a book I bought for him yesterday "So You're Going to be a Dad" as well as the ClearBlue digital and a soft plush Optimus Prime toy. Of course, being a guy and all, he ripped into the present, was stoked about the Optimus Prime and then just looked at the book kind of quizzically and said "but I'm not going to be a dad." He hadn't seen the HPT at this point... so I pulled out the HPT and he just looked at me for a second and said "who did you pay off to POAS for you?" I said, no, that's me. I'm pregnant... after a second of mild shock he was quite happy and started right into reading the book!!!So this morning, amazingly, I got ahold of my GP and have a prenatal appointment for January 7th. I also got in touch with one of the local midwife services and they will call me by the end of the week to let me know whether or not they can take me on as a client...

And for the sake of posterity...

Here are pictures of the BFP!!


Seriously... OMFG... I am pregnant! I still can't believe it and DH (dear husband) doesn't know yet. I'm trying to keep it secret until Xmas so I can surprise him. Can you believe it??? I still can't. I don't really know why but I decided to POAS today before I went out and sure enough it was a BFP (big fat positive). But it was one of those Dollarama cheapie HPTs... but I trusted it. I POAS on a ClearBlue digital later today and it was a BFP too!! So I guess it's official!!! Whoo hoo! I have to call the dr's office not now but right now - ok maybe as soon as they're open after the holidays - and book an appointment. And I have to find a midwife thingamabobber... I have no idea what they're called.... clinic? service? Whatever. FF (fertility friend) says my EDD is August 31, 2008... we'll see what the doctor comes up with. How exciting!
