I am so excited to announce that we are pregnant with our first child! We are so excited and extremely blessed to be starting this next chapter in our lives. God is so good!
The Big Fat Positive
We were on vacation in Florida with family when I had the first suspicion I was pregnant. My period was late… I kept waiting for it to come but it never did. I waited till we got home from our trip to take a pregnancy test because I wanted to share the moment with just Miguel. Within minutes of being home, I took the test (thankfully we already had one at home). I set it on the bathroom counter and sat on the bed with the dog and cat while we waited for the results. Miguel was actually the first one to look at the test. It was positive!
“Luna, you’re going to be a big sister!”
We were all so excited, the pets too! But also a little in disbelief. Probably because of the exhaustion from traveling all day. I was mainly relieved to see a positive result, because that meant I wasn’t crazy and making it all up in my head. Clearly it’s a big sign when you don’t get your period… but I wasn’t 100% positive that it meant I was pregnant.
Our estimated due date is October 25, 2018. Three days before my birthday! I honestly was secretly hoping for an October birthday because that means four generations in my family will have October birthdays. My grandmother was born October 11. My mom was born October 23. I was born October 28. And now Baby Caballero will be born October 25! Well in theory, because that could change. How exciting and special!
Since this is my first pregnancy, I really feel clueless to all of it. And while there is a lot of information online that is helpful, I feel like half of it just makes me extremely anxious. BUT I know that God has given us this child. He is in control of this pregnancy and I trust His plan to bring us a beautiful, happy and healthy baby. God will guide us through this pregnancy and give us peace, wisdom and faith with anything that comes our way. All the while shaping us into the amazing parents I know we are going to be.
Stay tuned for more updates about my pregnancy with Baby Caballero!
Soon after getting a positive test result, I downloaded a few different “track your pregnancy” apps. My personal favorite is Ovia Pregnancy. I also used Ovia Fertility to track my cycle when we were trying. Other good apps are BabyCenter and The Bump.
