Exciting News!

I just took a home pregnancy test. The results are a (+) I am pregnant!!! Kind of a surprise, kind of not. See my husband and I decided that I would go off of birth control several months ago. So we used other means for a few months( ok maybe only one or two). Then went off completely. It has been at least 6 months since we last used anything. I was beginning to wonder if it was going to happen at all. My periods began to get to normal and I was never a single day late. Until today! I actually started spotting on Monday. It lasted until Wednesday. Then I was supposed to start today. We were out of town on a tiny vacation, so I tried not to think of it. When we got home tonight, I decided to go ahead and use the last home pregnancy test I had here. The plus sign showed up almost immediately! There is no doubt in my mind that it is true. I am pregnant! The only thing is that now I have to wait untill the first of February to see my Dr. That's when the new insurance kicks in. I hate that!!! My last pregnancy I needed to take progesterone pills for the first trimester to keep the pregnancy going. I had lost two prior to that due to not enough progesterone being produced naturally. There is a difference this time though. With the home pregnancy test that I took those times, the second line on the + came up very faintly. This time it is dark, just like the other line and the test line. That shows that the hormones are there. Now what worries me is the spotting that took place for three days.

I need lots of prayers for this one to work out for me. At least good thoughts!

We have decided not to tell anyone in our family about it until I can get to the Dr and know that all is well, for sure. I'm not sure how long I can keep it a secret. I need some help with that too! That's why I am posting it here. I can't hold it in. I need to tell someone, everyone! But it needs to wait for a little while longer.

Mean while I have found a pattern to use for the blankets I will make. It's the diagonal box stitch. It's not hard at all, and I love the way it looks. I went ahead and used a different hook though, size H. The Jimbo Hook is just to big for most blankets(size J). =( But given the news above, I think I will put that hook to better use! No harm after all. lol

Well, I guess I better go now. I have a lot to do before bed.
