Even though we had a positive test we knew we still had a long road to go so we kept quiet about it and hoped for the best. I had to remind myself every day that I was pregnant because it didn’t seem real.
I called my Dr. to make the first appointment. She wouldn’t see me until 10 weeks which I knew was typical but it still made me nervous. 10 weeks is a long time for a first timer who has no idea what to expect. I took another home test a week later to make sure it was still positive.
I decided a long time ago that I did not want to tell anyone the news until I felt comfortable. I knew Matt could keep the secret but I had been hiding everything from Sara, she didn’t even know we were trying. Sara was going to be in town when I was a little over 5 weeks. Even though it was still really early I knew this was my only chance to tell her in person so I told her and swore her to secrecy. I think she was in shock for a while but then got really excited for me. We spent most of the afternoon talking about pregnancy. It felt really good to finally talk about this.
