I just can't keep this from you any longer...

Carina is going to be a big sister :)

That super dark line is the test line - whoa!
It's still really early, but I told you guys just a few days after my BFP last time and I didn't want to break with tradition. I toyed with keeping it a secret until after my first appointment at 10 weeks, but there is no way I can wait until then; I'm just not good at secrets. And plus also, this blog is my virtual baby book and I want to document everything from early on like I did while I was pregnant with Carina.

M and I were watching a movie one night about a week and a half ago, during which I nagged him, "can you make me Mac & Cheese?" "please make me Mac & Cheese?" "I could really go for some Mac & Cheese" {no joke} 6 times over the course of a half hour. Then, I felt all woozy from half a glass of wine. He looked at me and asked, "are you pregnant?!" At that point I was 10 dpo (days post-ovulation) which is pretty early, and I hadn't planned on testing for another couple of days, but figured what the hell.

We stood in the bathroom watching the test develop and at first there was no 2nd line. We're waiting, watching, "nope, nothing there...still nothing...nope...oh wait...is that....do you see something? Yep that's definitely a line; holy crap I'm pregnant."

We were so lucky this time around. It took us 8 cycles to conceive Carina. Baby #2? My first postpartum cycle. We're still in shock, to be honest. This baby will arrive sometime around September 25th, and we couldn't be more excited! I've been feeling pretty awful so far, so I apologize in advance if my posting slows down a bit. Momma needs some ice cream, and a nap... ;)

My crazy bloat

P.S. If you are friends with me on Facebook or know me in person, please keep this to yourself for a bit longer if you don't mind. Not all of our friends know yet, and I won't be making a big announcement until the end of 1st Tri, probably. Thanks! :)
