Can you guess?

I wanted to save this post for monday..but I just can't help myself!  Can you guess?

Still scratching your head?!  Think about it really hard!!!  
Ok..THIS should really help!

Whats say?  Do you really think she's trying to tell us......

Oh my!!!  YES..y'all its true!!  I am officially 'preggers'!! 

You guys have NO IDEA how hard it has been to try to keep this a secret for so long!!  Especially with all the pregnancy announcements thats been going on for the past several weeks and baby gender reveal parties (Callie, I was about to BUST!!)!!  I waited a long while before making a doctor's can understand after my miscarriage back in July I wanted to be positive beyond a shadow of a doubt that I was definately pregnant and not rush into anything, like I did then.  Then early last week I caught that lovely 'bug' for 24 hours and wanted to wait till I was past THAT.  So it was an agonizing wait until this monday when I scheduled my first appointment!  It was TODAY (Friday) and I had my first ultrasound and dr visit.  Everything went so great..I'm happy to report!!  The ultrasound technician said everything looked extremely well and that I'm..hold your breath..10 WEEKS PREGNANT!!!  I honestly still can't believe that one since I kinda 'figured' we conceived around the time we were on vacation (I jokingly told a couple people it was a baby-cation..looks like I was right!)..and that would make me more like 9 weeks.  But..thats what they are telling me!!!  We're soo excited and are still kind of in shock..though we have known for quite some time that I was pregnant.  I guess seeing that little baby on that screen just makes it know.  Its exciting and scary at the same time! 

I wanted to ask for some prayers from all of you wonderful bloggers out there..I have to go in next week for bloodwork and tests (those who are pregnant know what I'm talkin about).  My blood pressure today was high..and really thats my main concern right now.  So do remember me when you pray!!!!  Me and the baby would definately appreciate it alot! 

Its so exciting to finally be able to share the happy news with all of you guys!!  I've waited for what has seemed like forever for this day!  Oh and before I end this due date (for now, anyways) is May 30th..a Memorial Day baby it looks like!!  :-)
