New Addition to the House!

Sorry I’ve been kinda blah about updating lately. A lot has been going on. My two friends from home, Melissa (Wisconsin) and Kelsea (Iowa) were up here visiting for about 3 weeks. It was a crazy time but also very very fun! :D We had some crazy times on our trip over the 4th of July weekend–we drove 2 1/2 hours to Denali National Park to see Mount McKinley. Alas, we were part of the 70% that didn’t see it because of the weather being too cloudy and rainy. :( Then we continued our journey another 4 hours south to Anchorage where we stayed on the army base there and camped for a night. We took a trip to the Alaska Zoo (check out last blog!) and then took the 6 1/2 hour trip back home to Fairbanks/Ft. Wainwright.

The girls were here for another week after that and during that time, guess what? Found out I am pregnant! :cheerful: I took two home pregnancy tests in the same day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon and they both said “Pregnant”. (I get the digital ones that actually say the words ;) ) Then the next day John and I went to the hospital to take an “official” test and pee in a cup for the wonderful nurses there. After calling them and hounding them for my results that day, they told me it was a “weak positive” so I had to come back in 48 hours to do another one. :rolleyes: So I went back that Friday and did another test. STILL weak. Went back in this last Monday and finally it came back a normal positive. So they signed me up for my first appointment, but it’s a week from tomorrow and it’s a group thing. :confused: How stupid does that sound? We have to go through a sort-of class thing where they tell us what we should and shouldn’t do while pregnant, what medicines we can take, etc and then we get some one-on-one time with our nurse. I told John he was coming with me. lol

I really really want to update soon, with a new layout and new content… I just don’t know what to do. Any ideas that can spark some inspiration for me? That would be awesome! :D

    Congratulations! Being pregnant is a wonderful thing! :)

    Well, I guess having it in a group is so much better. You get to talk to other pregnant women and you get to learn tips from them, talk about it and stuffs :D

      it wasn’t planned or unplanned…. i stopped taking my birth control 4 months ago and we decided to let it happen whenever it was meant to happen. We decided leaving it up to God was the right thing :D

    Congratulations on being pregnant! Were you trying to get pregnant? I never knew that you could be a “weak pregnant”. What does that even mean? Is your husband excited? I can’t wait to hear about your adventure, assuming you are going to tell us all about it during the next 9 months.

      no i was actually gonna keep the next 9 months secret :p like i replied to natasha, we weren’t actively trying, just decided whenever it would happen it would happen.

      I believe “weak pregnant” just meant that it was too early to get a definite reading… i mean obviously if it’s positive at all that means you’re pregnant but it being weak just means it was early and not enough of the hormone was being detected for a strong result.

      and yes, john is very excited :D
