Surprise!

Meg took another test this morning. She's still pregnant! 4 weeks, this Wednesday, to be exact.

Confused??? Yea, I was too. I actually googled it because my mind was completely baffled. I didn't understand how she could be 4 weeks pregnant when we just inseminated 2 weeks ago...turns out it goes off of the first day of your last period. 

That's not the only thing I learned...I also learned that our munchkin is smaller than a grain of rice. How insane is that?!?! I'm never going to look at food the same way!

Speaking of food, I took a trip to whole foods today. It wasn't as fun without Megan, but it gave me time to search for items to put in a surprise pregnancy survival basket...

I bought her the book, Your Pregnancy Week by Week, a prenatal yoga dvd, more (organic) prenatal vitamins, dark chocolate, ginger candy, mints, and gum (without artificial sweeteners). I also bought her shampoo, conditioner, face moisturizer, body lotion, and chapstick. Oh, and a brita! 

I arranged all of the goodies in a basket and left it on the dining room table for her to see when she got home. Much better than flowers, right?!?

In terms of symptoms, Meg is feeling a little sleepy and "car sick" today. Her stomach feels very unsettled (she had diarrhea this morning and is extremely gassy...poor thing). Her boobs are also sore. 

On a more positive note, our friend gave us a present today...a knitted picture of three butterflies (framed). Thanks, Amanda!!!

Here's to a happy and healthy pregnancy!!

  1. What a truly thoughtful gift. Congratulations. I'm only a day behind you, my third IUI was on August 4 - but I won't let myself test until Thursday. Although, I gotta admit...feels like AF is coming. Last month she was four days late. She didn't show up today, but I'm still waiting.
