We've always been kinda extreme.

Wow, it's been a while! With the excitement of Christmas and New Years and just LIFE, and the bone-deep exhaustion I have been experiencing I just haven't been able to bring myself to post. And, that tiredness that I speak of? Well that has actually been explained. Come this September we'll be adding another little Panchuk to our family! I am 6 weeks pregnant!

It has been a bit of a rollercoaster, to say the least. I first suspected something might be up almost 3 weeks ago when I didn't get that infamous monthly visitor. So two weeks ago I took a test and it was negative. This put my mind at ease although I was kind of curious as to why I hadn't gotten a period. So last Monday when it still hadn't shown, I took another test. This one came back with a verrrry faint positive which immediately made me freak out. So I took another test on Tuesday and that one came back negative. Okay, confused now! So I had a regular doctors appointment on Wednesday and I had him give me another test in the office. That one was negative as well, and he gave me his opinion that I probably wasn't pregnant but that he'd do a blood test just in case.

Well by this point I was thinking to myself "whew, dodged a bullet right there". Seriously thought that the blood test was a formality. Ohhhhh no, lovely Pat from the doctor's office called me on Friday and said that I am, in fact, pregnant. Ah shit. And I confirmed it last night with another test.

So there ya go. Obviously not planned. Hello, do I LOOK crazy? It's not the end of the world by any means, it's just not exactly the timing we were aiming for. But there's just one thing I have to say:

It better effing be a girl!!!

I'm so happy for you :) And I'm sending pink vibes your way. You need to buy yourself a pink fleece blanket. My mom bought me one as soon as I found out I was pregnant and told me to put it over my belly every night. haha It worked ;)
