Week 6 1/2

I always thought that when I was finally pregnant, it (the side effects) wouldn't hit me for awhile. WRONG! I can't sleep through the night - having to get up 2 or 3 times for the bathroom. I can actually feel what's going on in there and it is strange! And I can't believe how tired I am! I get one poor night of sleep and my sleep habits are off for atleast a week. But I am still so thrilled! I am so dang nervous to tell my family though. I wanted to tell them this weekend, but it was fair week and EVERYONE was in a pissy mood. I'll probably just tell them over the phone because I don't think I could face disappointment right now (if they are). I don't know why I'm so afraid to tell them. I'm married and we're doing great supporting ourselves.... I guess I just seek approval too much and I know that they think this is a bad time for me. But how bad could it be? I got pregnant while I was on birth control so I know this is what Heavenly Father thinks is good for me. Yes, we're both in school, and work for our landlord, but we're working out the kinks (we have plenty of time) and it'll be great.

We're having a baby!!!!!! Here's how we found out:

I was at home and was trying to decide whether or not to go back on the pill. (I had been having a VERY hard time being on the pill so I had stopped using the pill and we were using something else) I was just fed up and figured the pill was easier so I called Jason and had him pick me up a pregnancy test just so I could be sure because taking the pill while being pregnant is very dangerous. Anyways, he brought the test home and, honestly, I totally forgot about it. When I finally remembered, I took the test and finished some things while I waited for the result. When I went to throw the test away (because I was almost certain it was negative), instead of 1 line, I saw 2!! I couldn't believe it! I showed Jason and he was speechless as well. Still unconvinced, I took the other test and it also came out positive. Holy Crap!!!!!!!!!!!! I spent the next few days in disbelief, but when I set up my first appointment with my midwife, it finally hit me - I'm really having a baby! Jason and I are so excited! The more we look at the baby books and see pictures of what our baby looks like now and what it will look like in the coming weeks, the more excxited we get. Jason already swears he can hear the baby's heartbeat (yes, there is already a heartbeat) and talks to her all the time - it's so sweet! My due date is March 4th - it's going to be here so fast!

Throughout my late adolescense and adulthood, I have had many positions (professionally and volunteer basis) that have helped me develop skills necessary to serve as a liaison to the community on behalf of a professional organization. I have spent many years in various organizations which have helped me grow skills such as public speaking, note taking, and scheduling. I am proficient in organization and mediation – always keeping the mindset of finding middle ground and while meeting the needs of those involved. I excel in the area of community outreach and thrive in situations where I am given reign to be creative and managerial. I am committed to achieving the best outcome and feel I have many fantastic qualities to contribute to any organization.
