I cannot believe that I am officially pregnant....4 weeks and 5 days to be exact!
Yesterday DH and I made the trek to London so that we would get our blood-work results back in the afternoon (you are allowed to do it here in Toronto but then you have to wait a few days for results)--the blood-work is at 7 am and then you have to wait ALL day to hear from them--usually around 2-3pm so we decided to take the scenic route home and drive through Aylmer to stop at some antique stores and a winery that a friend had recommended (where I sampled the amazing non alcoholic peach wine..haha--umm isn't that just bubbly peach juice!) . So while it was a great idea to keep our minds off of things, what we didn't realize is that we were COMPLETELY out of cell phone range.
We got back in the car and when we were driving I noticed I had a missed call but for the life of me I couldn't get a call out to anyone. So here we are driving in the country with me trying to get a signal on both my and DH phones...kicking myself for missing the damn call. Finally my DH's phone starts ringing and we pull over on the side of the road. We have to wait a while for the receptionist to get the nurse Kim on the line and then she is there...asking if I've had any spotting or bleeding..and I'm thinking OH NO..its a negative and she wants to know if I've had my AF.
So I respond a nervous "no?!" and she says well that's great because you are pregnant! Instantly DH and I are both crying and then I realize we are on a side road in between two corn fields--just too funny!
My beta level was 683 (anything over 100 is prego) so some of our friends and relatives are convinced its twins but we'll have to wait until u/s on Sept. 2.
After the call we drove into a sleepy town called Sparta in Elgin county---we stopped for some lemonade in this old british tea house and went shopping in the small country store where I purchased our first grey teddy-- who we named Sparta--to remember the day of our great news!!!
For all you mommas-in-waiting---I know your time will come and until then I am throwing my dust your way! XOX
