Third Time's a Charm

I think it is about time to announce that Nicholas and Melissa Marie are pregnant with their first baby. That has a nice ring to it. We are soooo excited you don't even know. I am officially 3 months today. 6 more months to go. I am due on May 13th! I have always wanted to be a Mommy and now my dream is coming true. We are so blessed. I have never been this happy in my life. I can't wait to see how cute Nick is as a Dad. He is going to perfect at it. I can already tell.

I'm not going to lie but the first three months have been rough at times but it is all worth it and more. The nauseousness, exhaustion and constipation is definitely something I can do without. Sorry if that was too much info. My belly is already to starting to look like a beer gut. Thank goodness it's a baby and not beer that's in there. I am so weird.

Some of you know that we were on fertility medications. Definitely not fun at all. Lots and lots of needles. Thank goodness Nick was able to give them to me because I couldn't do it. The whole experience was an emotional and physical roller coaster. I think the worst part about it was not knowing if anything was ever going to work. I would be so devastated if I couldn't have children. Thank goodness it worked the third time because our next option was In-Vitro and that process is so evasive and crazy.

I found out on Sept. 4th. I had to go in for bloodwork and wait 6 hours for the nurse to call me with the results. It was the longest 6 hours of my life. I went visiting teaching that day and of course the nurse called when I was in the middle of it and I didn't hear my phone. I quickly called her back when I got home. I wanted to be by myself when I got the news. Of course she didn't pick up and I had to leave a message. Waiting for the call back was so painful. I was praying, walking around the house aimlessly, turning the TV off and on. The cats were looking at me like I was crazy. Finally my phone rang. Here we go, I thought. The nurse said, "Hello, we got your test results and it came back positive." "Congratulations, you are pregnant." This is verbatim. I didn't know what to say but fight back the tears. As soon as I got off the phone, I said a prayer through my tears. I couldn't stop smiling.

I went to Hallmark and got Nick a frame that said, "Anybody can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a Dad." Then I rushed to his work. I waited in the parking lot for him to come out. I tried not to smile too much when he came out but that is very hard for me to do. I barely got the words out and he knew. He picked me and gave me the biggest hug and kiss. I have never seen him so happy and excited and I will never forget his expression. It was so adorable. We kept kissing each other over and over.

Then it was off to tell my parents. On the way, I thought of my grandmother and said a little prayer to her. I wish she was here to experience all of this with me. I know she would be so proud to be a great grandmother. Love you Mommom!

When we got to my parents I hid in the dinning room because my parents weren't home yet. Nick talked to them when they got home for a little and then I jumped out. Of course they knew before I said anything. I can never get the words out fast enough. They are so excited to finally be grandparents. I was their only chance and I pulled through for them. Go me. Oh ya, and Nick too. Couldn't have done it without him. :) I hope that I can be as perfect of a Mom as my Mom is.

Then we called Momma and Papa C. Nick is so funny. His Mom totally knew at first too. She said, "You guys are going to have a baby." I think Grandparents are part psychic or something. Nick said no Mom that's not what I was going to tell you. "I wanted to tell you that I lost my wallet, Missy lost her keys, which I never found by the way. He went on and on. At last he says, "Oh ya and Missy is pregnant." He is always trying to be a comedian. They were so happy for us. I can't wait for them to come out and visit!

Hopefully my next blog entry will have some pictures and announce the sex of the baby!!!
