Over the past 6 months we have been trying to get pregnant. We did the ovulation strips, worked out, lost weight, got more rest and on and on....
We did what we thought we needed to do. 

Well, my cycles were a disaster thanks to having my Mirena birth control removed. I was just so fed up with the issues. I was starting to wonder if we'd get pregnant or if maybe there was a problem with my husband. Hell I didn't even get a positive ovulation strip this month so I was convinced I was broken...

So, I scheduled an appointment with my OB/GYN to discuss our options for fertility testing. 

Well, last Thursday, I realized I was one day late...not a huge deal since I'd only had ONE 28 day normal cycle since coming off of BC 6 months ago. 
But, since I'm addicted to peeing on sticks I decided I'd go ahead. 

So, as the test is processing I start getting ready for work and kinda forget about it. I go to knock it into the garbage when I see :

I couldn't believe my eyes. It was faint but it was there. It wasn't stark white like all the other tests. So, I then went and took another:

I continued to be shocked and in disbelief so I took two more:

I've taken I think a total of 7 since the first one was positive.  lol

I'm still in shock that I'm 5 weeks pregnant with my third and FINAL baby!!!!!
We see the doctor on Sept 14th and it can't come fast enough.
