I've waited long enough. (In my opinion).
This news is too good not to share.
So. Here goes....
I'm going to be a Mommy.
(Breathes a sigh of relief at FINALLY being able to share the good news). Yep. I'm 9 weeks pregnant! So, in February 2010, there's going to be a baby Andrew/Hez entering the world.
I'm beyond excited. A little freaked out. But mostly ecstatic at the thought of having my own squishy little mini-me and Andrew. (I'm sorry, but - cute much?? Andrew and I were both ADORABLE babies, if I do say so myself).
Ever since I did the home pregnancy test and found out, I've kept a few entries about how I'm feeling and what was going on - in a word doc. Which, I will share with you now, giving you a first-class ticket to inside my pregnant mind. You lucky Internet, you!!
Here are the first two entries I wrote... stay tuned for more tomorrow...

Oh. Mah. Goodnes. The waiting game? T’is a difficult thing. If good ol’ Aunt Flo is as regular as it has been over the past few months, it should arrive tomorrow or Sunday. If it doesn’t… (PLEASE let it NOT arrive), I’ll be testing Monday morning. I won’t be able to hold off any longer than that.
I honestly have every appendage that I can cross, crossed. I really want it to work out this month for us. Because if it doesn’t? Going through the whole waiting process a THIRD time might just kill me.
I’m such a drama queen.

There’s nothing else to say right now but this:
I. AM. PREGNANT.
(That looks so weird in print.)
So, I’m going to be a Mom.
It’s true. I peed on a stick this morning, not expecting much. I was hopeful, I guess. But also sleepy and not overwhelmingly excited at the pee-on-a-stick thing. (I think I must have been remembering last time around when it didn’t work for us in April/May. I peed on a stick one morning, got a negative, then got my period the next day. Boo.)
So today, when I wandered back into the bathroom after 3 minutes and found a VERY bright pair of pink lines (indicating that yes, I am very much preggers), I was pretty shocked. And pretty stoked. And pretty thrilled.
And now – I can’t wait to tell my Mom.
Oh yeah… Classic Heather moment: I hustled off to the bookstore today and immediately bought “The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy” to go along with the classic lent to me by my friend, Kim: “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.” I’m a-gunna be a well read pregnant lady!
Oh – and another crazy thing – my friend Cheryl randomly emailed me out of the blue today to follow up with me on a short, little conversation we had about a month ago. That conversation? Was about midwives. Her email? Said this:
“If and when you want the midwife service, you should call them to be put on their waiting list the first day you ‘pee on the stick and get the + sign” vs. waiting for the blood test from your doctor.”
That’s freaky, yo. It took everything I had in me to not email her back exclaiming: HOW DID YOU KNOW?? I’M PREGNANT, CHERYL! PREGNANT! YOUR EMAIL IS SO TIMELY!
I restrained myself. But 7-8 more weeks of this restraint is going to be hard.
