Baby Davis


Ryan and I are beyond excited to annouce that Baby Davis will be making his or her appearance around mid-April!!! Today, we are 5 weeks and 5 days. Now, here is my "disclaimer." I know that it is extremely early in the pregnancy and to make an annoucement that we are expecting our first baby is bold. However, while Ryan would rather wait and be a little more certain about everything, I on the other hand am all too candid about these things. Blogging is therapeutic (and extremely fun) for me and I know it'll be easier during this whole process to share my feelings, fears, emotions, etc.! Therefore, it was agreed we'd go ahead and share. We were going to "wait" until next Tuesday, which is our appointment with the nurse practitioner but in reality I am busting at the seams to let it all out! To me, 6 days isn't going to make much of a difference and those 6 days are days that I can bask in all my glory!
Here's the story:
Ryan and I decided when we got married that we were going to start trying immediately for a family. Why? Simple...we didn't know how long it was going to take us. We've seen people try for quite some time so we knew that could be a reality for us as well. We had planned on trying to conceive on our own for a year and if we had no luck we would seek professional help. I had been on birth control for 8 years so in the back of my head I had a feeling it would be closer to a year before we got pregnant. I had always been very regular before birth control, like to the day, and of course while on it I was too. I messed up and started worrying (because of the internet, blogs, and forums), thinking my period would be so out of whack when I quit taking the birth control and I wouldn't have a period for months or years. So, when I started having a period immediately I thanked God a million times over. Once my period continued to come every 28 days I was thrilled yet again. I got a little obessed with wanting to become pregnant because for the first two months I was tracking my ovulation days... I was determined. And yes, I'll admit it (embarrassed) I cried the first two months I didn't get pregnant. But, for the record, when I say cried, it was more of a "ten minute I'm going to be a pouty pants and then I'm over it." Then, I deleted that stupid app (stupid iPhone) and got my mind off trying. Even though I wasn't watching the day of ovulation, I still got a little sad when the period showed up, but this time didn't really cry. Well my period always gave me a hint or two that it was showing up...and well, this month it didn't. I was expecting it on a Friday and when it didn't show, I knew it was teasing me and would show Saturday morning...or even Saturday afternoon while shopping in Conway. Either way--it was coming! Well, Saturday evening (August 7) there was still no sign of it so Ryan and I went to buy pregnancy tests and took the first one...positive! The second...positive! We were so excited, but I think more in shock than anything!And yes, Sunday morning before church I took another...still positive. Either way, we knew our lives were about to change for the better! We went to tell our parents because there was no way we could keep it secret! They were of course excited beyond any measure. So, here we are almost 6 weeks pregnant with little baby Davis on the way. I realize God has a plan for me, Ryan, and the baby. I know that whatever that plan is, is the way it's supposed to be and I shouldn't question it. I know that Ryan and I are going to make great parents and I can't wait to blog about the changes I am going through and how the baby is progressing. All we ask is that you keep us in your prayers as we prepare for the most exciting time of our lives!

The night we found out----pure shock!
