We just found out that I was pregnant two days ago.
For every other test, I pretty much took it alone. I think because this time I really thought I was pregnant, I wanted to make sure I shared the result with Alain.
We watched the pink line appear together, and it was a great moment for us. I was so glad I had included him in the moment. We took photos for the TTC forum I had been participating in on Ravelry. There is a great group of girls there I am telling you. They really helped me though the pre-pregnancy crazies that most women experience when they really want to be pregnant. I was no exception. The last month of trying was truly hard and I know Alain was thankful that I could go back to being me.
The line confirming pregnancy was still very light, but I wasn't worried. I had already been feeling pregnant for a week. I felt bloated, my abdomin felt heavy. I was 14 DPO (days past ovulation) and although I had had some spotting around the time of implantation, that had stopped. My BBT (basal body temperature) remained high every night and my breasts were sensitive and had been for the past few weeks.
We had even been out shopping to buy me new clothes (just a few shirts) since all my shirts (and pants too) were starting to feel too tight. I will point out that normally I wear shirts and pants that are quite fitted, but that just was not going to work anymore! I was already feeling bigger, even if I didn't look it, and wanted my clothing to be looser and more comfortable. Thank goodness I work from home a lot. This means I won't need a whole new wardrobe for work!
I worry about Alain a lot. I want him to feel involved, and I know a lot of Dads struggle with that. I keep asking him how he is doing and I wasn't sure how he was really feeling. I felt better when I caught him using an online due date calculator... That made me happy. We really were pregnant!
