The first few weeks

Josh and I are expecting our first child.  We couldn't be more excited!! This is something that both of us have wanted, but came to us a little earlier than expected.  We found out that we were expecting on June 12, 2011.  I had already missed my May cycle and hadn't been feeling "normal."  I think in the back of my head I knew I was pregnant, but taking the test would verify it for both of us. We went to the Greenville hospital to see one of Josh's friends' baby and decided to just go ahead a take the pregnancy test.   So when we got home the first thing I did was take the test and within less than a minute the test came back positive!! I was in shock but extremely excited at the same time.  When I showed Josh all he could say was "really, really."  I think he was feeling the same thing I was, a little bit of shock, but overwhelmed with excitement! We wanted to be extremely sure, so the next morning I took the other test and it came back positive also!  The first people we called were our parents and they were THRILLED to say the least!  We wanted to wait a little while to tell our friends, just to make sure everything was going right. 

The start of the journey

So this is the first blog that I have ever done.  Hopefully it will get better as time goes on.  I will try to keep you as up to date as possible.
