Hi everyone this is my first post.  As many of you know Jason and I are expecting our first little miracle in March.  It has been suggested that I start a blog to document this journey.  Several of my friends have a blog and I really enjoy reading them and keeping update with their lives and children.  So here we go. 

On July 6, 2010 I took a home pregnancy test that gave me a positive result pretty much right away.  I was shocked and scared all at the same time.  First thing I did was tried to call Jason, and of course he didn't answer.  So the whole way to work I was thinking to myself that I couldn't have read the test right.  I had decide to buy another test and retest when I got home.  Well Jason finally called me right after I got to work of course.  Me being the emotional mess I am started bawling as soon as I heard his voice.  He said "Goob what's wrong?"  I said, " Nothing I hope but I think you are going to be a daddy."  He was happy instantly and said" Well congrats Goob!"  That made me laugh and I said, " Congrats to you too!"  After that I was still trying to let it all sink in.  It was so surreal.  As I promised myself I did buy another pregnancy test at lunch a digital one this time so this dummy couldn't second guess it.  Once again low and behold "PREGNANT" popped up.  So I had to face the fact I was pregnant. 

This is something I have always wanted.  There were so many emotion going on I wasn't sure what to feel.  The hardest thing for me was not telling our families until after I went to the doctor.  I am sure many think I am weird for doing that but I always said when I got pregnant no one would know until after I went to the doctor. so I kept my mouth shut for almost a month.  It was very hard because Jason and I are both close to our families.  But I am glad I waited.

My first appointment was on July 30th, also my nephews birthday.  I was so worried, scared, and anxious.  I didn't know what to expect.  I am a planner and would much rather know whats coming at me.  I thought the appointment would last for a couple hours.  Not exactly sure why but that was my thinking.  Of course  that wasn't the case either.  I was in and out of there in about 20 minutes.  What a relief.  I got to see the lil peanut and hear the heartbeat.  It was amazing.  When I left I had to get blood work done.  I wasn't supposed to go home til the following weekend but I couldn't wait.  So I called Jas to let him know everything was ok and I was on my way. 

After my blood work, I stopped in Hagerstown and picked up a few gifts to announce the good news.  I broke the news to my mom and gran first.  They were so excited.  Next was Jason's mom, grandmother, and sister.  Again, very excited. We have been blessed with great family and friends.  Everyone is very happy for us and has been very supportive.  I just ask that everyone keep us in your thoughts and prayers for a healthy pregnancy and birth of Little Malone.   Just keep in mind everyone.......  Good things do come to those who wait!
