After getting confirmation on a digital HPT yesturday morning, I gave my OBGYN's office a call. I'm scheduled for my first prenatal appt. on May 21st at 1pm. I should be 6 weeks 6 days at the time. I can't wait! Unfortunately, I was told that they don't do an ultrasound at this appt., but I'm still holding out hope that maybe we'll get to hear the heartbeat then. Mike has decided that he wants to come to each and every appt. with me as well, so of course that makes me even more excited that he already wants to be so involved.
Also, since my graduation ceremony is 2 days after my appt., we're contemplating telling our parents right after the ceremony (at 7 weeks 1 day). Since I'll be a first generation college graduate for my family, my parents will already be on cloud nine that day (my dad tears up just thinking about it) and I think announcing the pregnancy then will just be icing on the cake.
As for this weekend, we were invited to a party that's being thrown by one of Mike's co-workers and his wife. My concern is that this couple really knows how to party it up and there is typically alot of drinking at these functions. Since I'm only 4 weeks as of today, obviously we don't want to give anything away just yet. The plan for now is to just tell everyone that I've been sick with the flu (not swine, TYVM) off and on for the past few weeks and that I don't quite feel well enough yet for alcohol. Mike is in charge of bringing pudding shots, so we're going to stick a few bottles of water in the cooler for me for the night. I'm just hoping no one catches on - the plan is to deny, deny, deny!
