First Visit

I had my first visit with the doctor today, except that it wasn't really with the doctor. They started by telling me how much this baby was going to cost us (before it gets here anyway!) and I just have to say, thank you Lord, for insurance! Then I met with the nurse, who basically filled out  a bunch of paperwork and put together an official "OB" chart for me. Chad was really hoping I'd come out with some sort of written proof that there was in fact a baby inside of me (the 6 pregnancy tests I took weren't enough!), but no luck. I did provide them lots of samples to test for various things, but I didn't get to see any of the results today. Yes, we are experiencing a little bit of denial around here!  She did confirm that I am six weeks along, I guess we count from the easiest date to determine rather than any where around when the pregnancy started, go figure.
God is so good with His perfect timing. I got to talk to another BFF, Pam, this evening. She and her husband, Rhys, just had their first child at the beginning of the month. What a joy to get to hear about her journey through parenthood and have her help me prepare for what's ahead. And, more importantly, reassure me that it will be worth it and not to freak out! 
I feel so blessed to be surrounded by such loving friends and family! I was able to spend the day with my mom and I just got off the phone with Suzanne, who I have deemed my pregnancy mentor, thank you for listening! Chad was able to share our news with a few more family members tonight.. so fun! I am really not sure how much longer we can keep this on the down low, I'm about to burst!
