Week 1 - Week 18

To what would be the delight of our families, Grant and I decided to start trying for a family in February 2010.
It wasn't until April that I stopped taking birth control, however.
After many negative pregnancy tests, we finally got what we were looking for in September:

The night before I took the test, we had gone to Ridgecrest for a date night, fancy, I know! We went to this great sushi restaurant, which blew my mind and made me a super happy girl. Finding out the next day that we were pregnant, I was very happy to know that my last meal had been sushi, b/c I could not in good conscience eat delicious sushi after that.  Sushi, you will be missed for the next 9 months!

We made our doctor appt for the next week and got it confirmed with a due date of June! We immediately called every family member and told them out good news. I wanted to do something fun, but my MIL was going to be absent from Bennett Family dinner that week, and so we just decided to call everyone, which worked out b/c I could not contain the good news any longer! I was bursting!

Grant and I never agree on any names. Occasionally over the years, I've mentioned names to him, and he turns them all down. And he has been obsessed with Stacy, so he can sing the song "Stacy's Mom Has Got it Goin on" to me... and I have refused this suggested multiple times with every fiber of my being! By some crazy miracle, we were able to agree on a baby name for a boy when we found out we were pregnant! However, we eventually decided to wait until we found out what we were having to think any more about it.

The next few months passed pretty uneventful. We jokingly wondered if I was even pregnant b/c I've had absolutely no symptoms, no cravings, no sickness, no nausea, and no weight gain. I actually lost 2 pounds within my first several doctor appointments, and have kept it off. Everything has gone smoothly. Around week 12, however, I did have a bit of a scare, but everything is perfectly fine. The only thing that has been a pain in my side is the Heartburn... it's driving me nuts! The last several weeks it has really begun to flare up! Pepcid Complete has been my best friend, however, I went to many different stores last weekend trying to find it, and I'm afraid that it is on hold until March, is what I've heard. Hopefully it's not discontinued all-together. It really is the best thing ever!

Here is a picture of me at Christmas, week 15.

Progressing along:

Week 18

Finally, Week 18, my belly began to start looking pregnant. I have not had to buy any maternity clothes at all, my jeans have actually been getting roomier up until this point. With no symptoms to make me feel pregnant, the beginnings of a growing belly has been very welcome!
