WE ARE HAVING A BABY!
I am so excited to be writing this blog post! I am just going to keep it simple since we have two YouTube videos announcing our pregnancy already. If you want to see the footage of us finding out, click here. If you want to see a sit down version of me telling the story of how I found out I was pregnant and more about our pregnancy journey, click here!
In summary, we started trying last August and found out we were expecting in December! It was 5 very long months and I swear each month I was closer and closer to just thinking it was never going to happen. I was using this kit to track my ovulation every month and it was really helpful! I totally recommend it if you are trying to get pregnant and wanting to actually be keeping track of things. I felt like we had waited so long to start trying, just “seeing what happened” was not appealing to me!!! The kit comes with 50 ovulation tests and 20 pregnancy tests. The pregnancy test reviews all said that people who took them only saw a positive a few days after they missed their period because they are inexpensive/not sensitive. This was not the case for me!! I took one of these 4 or 5 days before my period was supposed to come just because I was trying to use them up. I didn’t expect it to say yes at all but it had the most faint line ever! I took another one and a 6 days sooner First Response test a few hours later and had 2 more faint positive tests. It’s funny because in person you can see the lines (barely) but I was looking at our YouTube video because I saw a couple comments saying you can’t see the line at all and you really can’t haha!! I could barely see them when editing but YouTube always ruins the quality a little bit so the lines are really not visible.
We were planning to announce on Valentines Day but so many people were speculating that we were pregnant already so we decided to announce a few days early! We did give a couple hints so we will be making a vlog talking about all of those soon! There were also some unintentional signs like me breaking out and being soooo out of breath in the vlogs! We also filmed telling our family and friends so those vlogs should all be up soon!
I only have a couple weeks left of my first trimester so I am going to keep this post short because I want to do a full update on a new blog post all about how that has been! We are so so so excited to be having a baby and we also find out what we are having soooo soon! I was really set on thinking it was a boy at first but now I have been thinking girl so I am excited to officially find out!
