Could you wait?

It's has been haunting me for a few days now. Why is it, that when you are trying to get pregnant, all you can think about the last week before your next period, is that test. All you ladies who have ever tried to get pregnant know exactly what I am talking about. It's that overpriced, highly emotional test. If it's negative, there is disappointment in yourself for wasting the money, and anger towards the test for not showing that extra little line. It's the one that can make your whole body tremble.

So I went to the store, and thought I would just buy the test, and then maybe wait a few days to take it. Who was I kidding? I took it the very next day (this morning) and am very excited to report a BFP (big fat positive)
That's right, I chose the absolute worst time to have a baby, home alone a lot, with a car that doesn't fit our whole family. But still I'm super excited, and know it IS the right time.
The due date should be somewhere around October 15th, assuming nothing goes wrong. This does play a part in my head, since my last pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. I am determined to think happy thoughts, and look forward to 10 tiny fingers and 10 tiny toes in the fall.

Mag ik je alvast feliciteren?
Ik zal heel hard duimen dat alles goed gaat en hoop er dan in oktober een neefje of een nichtje bij te hebben.

So exciting to have all 4 mothers in our family having babies one right after the other! Though this means I may need to rethink my (very tentative- all in my head so far) plans of having you show me around Europe in the fall. Hooray!

WOW! I have been waiting to hear this, but am still jumping up and down for joy.
