So, finally I'm able to share the news to the blog world (not that I have many followers), but it's a relief!
Since I've kept you in the dark for the last several months I'll backtrack a little....
I found out I was pregnant 2 days before Christmas.

The night before I felt cramping and thought I was going to get my period. (crap!) I say crap because we had been trying for a couple months and I thought I was precise on the timing and I also didn't want to have to go in for a v. ultrasound having my period. (gross)
I was scheduled for a check up of my ovaries ( I have PCOS ) and I also took clomid that month.
That morning I decided to take a test, just for the heck of it.
It came back +. WHAT? I definitely didn't believe it because it was my 3rd urine of the day (sorry, TMI) and it wasn't a lot.
So, I took another one and it was the same.
I couldn't believe it.

When I got to the doctor's office, I told the nurse and she told me to pee in the cup and they'd check.
That's when I was getting really anxious...the nurse came in during my doctor check up to tell me it was again +


After my appointment I immediately called Nick and then went shopping. I just went to Kohl's because I knew they had a shirt I wanted to get Ellie. (see picture above)
We told my family Christmas Eve and Nick's family Christmas Day. Ellie wore her new shirt!

I've been feeling a lot better, but still exhausted. I'm not sure if that's from having a toddler and working full time or climbing this mountain.
I feel different with this pregnancy than with Ellie, so that is why we waited until 12 weeks to announce it. I was kind of anxious that something might happen.
I don't have a lot of cravings except when I get my mind on something, I have to have it. Like blackcows; not root beer floats that are awesome too, but a root beer/ice cream shake. I can drink blackcows faster too. YUM.
I've also been craving fruit. I did have this with Ellie, probably because I should be drinking more water.
So, I'm glad it's out there in public and now I can talk about things that everyone wants to hear about!
We have a lot to think about:

bedroom situation
double strollers
maternity clothes - new ones :)
will we found out the sex? (of course, don't try to stop me either)
