Expecting the Unexpected...

I am a little bit awestruck...

Yesterday I took my hundreth (a bit of an exaggeration...) pregnancy test. I've taken so many that I almost don't even look at the results anymore because I just expect them to be negative. So imagine my surprise when yesterday morning, before church, the test came back postive!! We have tried for so long (over 3 years...) and been told so many times that it might not happen that I couln't believe my eyes and neither could Derek, he thought I was sleepwalking! We still have a long road ahead of us, the next 9 weeks will tell us a lot - but I am pregnant and I can't even find words to explain how thankful I am to have this chance.

On another note... I have discovered that "morning sickness" has less to do with "morning" and a whole lot more to do with "sickness". I told myself that if I were so lucky as to get pregnant that I would not complain once about any of the accompanying symptoms - but wow... I had no idea it would be like this so early.

I'm taking a blood test today to find out how far along I am, but judging by the calendar it looks like I'll be due around the 1st of October. Keep us in your prayers...
