Great Pictures

Here are the great pictures I was making mention of yesterday, furthur explantion below:

Finding myself 4 days late for my period with no sign of my temperature dropping, I headed out last night to get some tests, fertility friend had today as my test date. Last night at 6pm I got a clear but fainter possitive, this morning with my morning urine I got  distinct and dark possitive. We are indeed pregnant. Which also means I was pregnant when that painting a few posts back was made and I had no clue, damn that girl is good.

6 months in, the one month we dont try and I get pregnant πŸ™‚ in fact we only had sex 3 times all month due to Dave’s surgery and my back injury haha. There were alot of factors working in our favour however and who know’s how they might or might not have contributed to this: First month on Soy, second month on a high dose of B12, the month of Beltane a very pronounced fertility festival in the old days where we proceded to jump over the beltane fire together (it’s supposed to bring fertility), and then Chiropractic treatments to help align and open my pelvis which in turn is said to promote fertility. Really who knows, all I really care about is that we got our possitive. Now stick baby stick and come home living, please. 
I had no typical pregnancy symptoms, in fact all my symptoms were PMS like, cramping, lots of cramping, mood swings, and hot flashes. Now I have alot of lower back pain which I associate the damn constipation I am going through…grrr.  Now I can’t wait to have more symptoms cause I am still in disbelief and holding my breath each time I pee a million times a day, praying there is no blood, so far so good πŸ™‚

WEEEEEEEEE πŸ™‚ Due date acording to Fertility Friend would be February 6th, however, they will induce me early so I am saying sometime in the last two weeks of January πŸ™‚ a new years baby. Trying not to be to hopeful, but I need this baby to please make it home πŸ™‚

P.s this is not public knowledge at this juncture, this is screened to my ultra private group of friends so please make every attempt to keep it that way! πŸ™‚ Thanks.

    Morning sickness is quite common among women. There are some natural methods that you can use to manage morning sickness such as meditation and relaxation exercises.;;`:*

    Yours truly

  5. We superstitious Jews say “b’sha tova!” (In a good hour!)

  6. OH MY GOD JAIME I KNEW IT!!!! i was in the car on the way home, and i was like “when i check my computer i am going to go to fertility friend and look at jaime’s chart because i just have a good feeling about it.” AND I DID AND I WAS RIGHT!
    oh honey, i am so glad for you. i can understand your reluctance at not feeling too hopeful too quickly, but i am sending you the best wishes and vibes that this is going to be a happy, healthy baby in your arms next year. i am so, SO happy for you. YAY SOY BABY!

    • Hahaha. Thanks I was not convinced until Friday that Aunt flo wasen’t comming, I had cramps exactly like my premenstral cramps and I was moody and hot, haah exact same symptoms. Saturday I knew because of the constipation/aversions/lack of period, today I know for sure, blah! I have morning sickness haha. Symptoms just keep trickling in.

  7. OMG! OMG! OMG! This is awesome! So awesome!!!
    Now I’ll just settle in and watch the nine months fly by while you do all the work. Heh heh. It’s so nice when people on my friends list have babies and the pregnancy seems to just fly by. πŸ˜‰
    So happy for you guys! You win at sex! πŸ˜›

    • haha thanks, you are more then welcome to live vicariously through me haha. All I need is that every single person beleive with all their might that THIS baby will be fine, and he/she will come home with me, and I will get to raise him/her and love every moment cause I love kids so damn much it’s sick and as long as I can remember all I have wanted to do is be someone’s mom. I always thought I would have like 3 kids even.
      Anyways, I am so happy to finally get my BFP :)5 days now since my period went MIA πŸ™‚

  8. ahhhh—here it is!!!
    Your latest post made me go–test, test test!! LOL!
    And here it is, in it’s BFP glory!!!!
    how awesomely exciting!
    I’m so excited to travel this road with you…..

  9. Jaime, you’ve made my dreams come true with this news πŸ™‚
    I will be here for you every step of the way. As Jen said, it is a difficult, harrowing journey – but so so amazingly worth it. And other loss mamas will see you through, just as they’ve seen us through…
    You have my number (btw, thank you so much for texting me to let me know!) so PLEASE use it WHENEVER, even in the middle of the night. During my pregnancy, I had Jen to text/email/call if I needed to, cos she was going through teh same thing – but it applies to you, too. For whatever you need, I’ll be there, to hold your hand electronically and tell you you’re not crazy ad I went through the same thing. If need be, I might just jump on a train and be there for this LO’s birth, if you’d have me. Anything to support a kindred spirit in loss and life such as you ❀
    You’ve really overjoyed me with this news, I can’t stand it. Like I said earlier, I really have so much faith in you and your body and bringing a miracle rainbow Maynard baby to this world.
    Send my love and congrats to Dave and to big brother Ollie! (And I just know Evan is smiling a mischievous little grin, having planned this all along πŸ˜‰

    • Awww thanks Maria, you are too good to me. You are always welcome in my home, in my hospital room and by my side πŸ™‚ haha.
      I am so happy to hear you are so happy. You have no idea how badly I want to be 100% positive that everything will go swimingly, I want to start buying diapers now, I have waited for this moment for so long, but I just have to restrain myself haha. I really do pray everything will be fine and baby Maynard will be in arms by February. Now if only I could skip ahead a few months hahah.
      Rest assured if I need to, I will call in the middle of the night haha. You are one of my favorite people in the world and it breaks my heart that we live so far away, I could so use you in my life right now. I need a mentor on how to be an awesome brestfeeder and cloth diapered.

    • omg how fun and awesome and amazing would it be to take a road trip together to be there for her??? before, after, during, WHATEVER, heeee!!!!

  10. You know, I kinda knew after your last cryptic post πŸ˜€ The painting was another indicator, but I didn’t want to say for sure it was THIS cycle… but then you were “late” and I knew πŸ˜€
    (((((((((((((((((((((((more belly blessings))))))))))))))))))))))))))

    • Tehe. I knew Friday for sure, cause that 2 days late, I was just worried it would be to early to test possitive at 11 dpo. I also worried it could just be my body doing it’s thang, re-adjusting ya know. So I could not exhale until I saw the BFP. One step at a time πŸ™‚


  12. I WANT TO SCREAM WITH JOY! But I also don’t want to say anything about anything yet. Let me know when you start all the great morning sickness symptoms, then I’ll start rejoycing a little more lol! OMG I love you guys so much!!!!

    • hahah oh Colleen. You can scream, just don’t tell anyone else haha, well ok you can everyone cause I don’t know any of your peeps πŸ™‚
      I may not get morning sickness ya know, I didn’t have it ever with Evan, I just had general queasiness and food/smell aversions. I already have those now.

  13. j, there are no words to convey my utter happiness for you and dave. how is he feeling? how’d you tell him?
    i am here to walk this journey with you, i’m sure you know from me and maria it’s not easy but so incredibly worth it. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! Evan’s a big brother!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • haha I told him yesterday morning, I rolled over and said, honey, my period is three days late and my temperature is up, I think we may be pregnant. I knew already I was, I just know my body and I am never late. Then I took the test last night and he was outside in the yard with Oliver so I went out and handed it to him and said, yup, we pregnant πŸ™‚
      He is very excited and hopefull and possitive all will be well this time, as men typically seem to be.
      Thanks for everything, I will need the support, I am already freaking out a little at the pospect of it all, it’s all I wanted but now I have to make sure financially were ok before he/she arrives and I am worried about the Heparin injections, and worried about being able to afford the chiro once my benefits have run out, but needing to go to prevent the re-injury of pelvis, you know, just lots of thoughts. However, above all, the thought is YEAY, baby baby baby, please be ok baby baby baby.

  14. omg. OMG. OH MY GOD!
    i am so excited for you! just… wow! you’ve had us all waiting and waiting and FINALLY the news! It’s about time! lol. Congratulations sweetie. I hope everything is perfect for you and that you finally get your baby πŸ™‚

    • hahah. But the build up is the best part.
      Thanks πŸ™‚ I hope so too.

      • lol it was funny. i was just glancing to see who updated and quickly read through stuff and I saw those pictures and was like “wait! is that a positive pregnancy test??? ARE THOSE PLUS SIGNS?????” lol. im sure you flipped your lid too when you saw those bad boys πŸ™‚

      • hahah I didn’t actually flip my lid because I saw it comming, I knew. I would have been shocked if it was negative.

      • well i knew too when i was pregnant but i was still like “omg” when i saw the positives.

  15. HOLY CRAP!!!!! Congrats!!! I am SOOOOO excited for you!!
