As you know, I’m PREGNANT! See our pregnancy announcement HERE.
Each week, I will blog about my pregnancy and pregnancy topics. I want to keep a pregnancy journal so I can look back on the memories one day and remember every moment. So why not use this blog? Come Wag Along not only with Simba, but the rest of my little family too! I hope you find this part of my blog just as interesting. This week, since we announced that we are pregnant to the world finally (man was it hard to keep it a secret for so long!), I will post a weekly pregnancy update everyday until I’m at my current week of pregnancy and then I will post one update every week. You will also be able to see a weekly pregnancy vlog on our YouTube channel Meet The Chambers! Subscribe by clicking HERE so you don’t miss any vlogs. We also have family vlogs and other random family moments if you’re interested. Thanks for all of your love & support!

My best moment this week
My best moment had to be finding out I was pregnant! I already had a feeling I was because of various symptoms, but I felt like it might just be withdrawal symptoms from coming off of birth control pills last month. I took a couple of pregnancy tests and they came out negative. I took one before my missed period and on the first day of my missed period and then again the next day. Each time it was negative. I was actually kind of sad. I had no idea I would be so emotional about it. I decided to wait until Saturday to test again. I woke up that Friday and something just told me to test as soon as I woke up. I did just that and a Big Fat Negative (BFN) appeared…or so I thought. About two minutes later…I saw a SUPER FAINT line and not just one line. I thought I was seeing things so I put the test up to the light and kept staring at it and it was still there. I ran to my husband and told him not to think I was crazy, but to see if he could see this suuuuper faint line I was seeing because I definitely see a line. Am I crazy? Nope! He saw the line too! We were so excited. I decided to buy some more tests during my lunch break so I could test again when I got home. I bought the First Response Test & Confirm pregnancy tests. One is a regular line test and the other was a digital. When I got home, I took a dollar tree test (New Choice) like the one I took that morning and we saw a faint line again! This time it was darker, but still faint. I then took the First Response pregnancy test and we saw another faint line and it was even darker than the New Choice pregnancy test. I then confirmed it with the digital First Response pregnancy test and after waiting what seemed like forever…we got a big fat YES+! It was the best feeling in the world and still is! We are so excited. September 12th, 2014 was definitely the best moment this week for sure!
*Here is the test with the super faint line. (My husband is JChambers Photography). Can you see the faint line? We literally had to hold it up very close to our face and I even put it next to the lamp to get a closer look.
Here are all the pregnancy tests I took after I got the faint line…just to make sure 🙂 POAS crazy!
Do I miss anything?
I miss feeling perfectly fine. I don’t like feeling queasy at all.
I don’t really have any particular food cravings at the moment.
How do I feel?
My symptoms this week are pretty much the HEY YOU’RE PREGNANT symptoms! I’m feeling pretty queasy. I have not barfed or anything, but it feels like I have to every now and then. I’m also extremely tired at times and just want to take a nap or go to bed early. I’m cramping every now and then and also have some little back aches here and there.
Have I started to show yet:
No, too early.
Am I happy or moody most of the time?
Happy because I’m soooo excited!
What am I looking forward to?
Confirming pregnancy at the doctor’s office. If their test comes back negative, I’m suing somebody! I took FOUR tests on Friday by TWO different brands so if I’m not pregnant I’m gonna be highly upset! I’m just saying.
