Only in the mornings so far this time, and very minimal, just feelings of sickness no vomiting so far! FX it stays that way if it stays at all!

Publicly announced pregnancy
Photo and quote from the announcement:

"So this is really happening!!! (Yes, again, haha!) And we couldn't be more thrilled! Please pray for us to have a healthy pregnancy! So far I really feel great ????! Baby is due December 18th, 2017! Planning to deliver @the Atrium Medical Center's Natural Beginnings (new Birth Center in Mason)! Maybe this will finally get to be my water birth?! (I never make it in time for that LOL) Or, maybe Michael will finally have a (bio) daughter?! Crazy I always said I wanted 6 ? (although this is #7 for our blended family! It will be my 6th birth! Wow!) God is great! This is so exciting!! *old test btw, just finally getting around to the announcement :D"

First Positive Pregnancy Test
I knew

On April 9, 2017 at 3 weeks 6 days pregnant
Told Husband/Partner
Apparently, even though I had it already figured out pretty surely prior to testing, and he knew I was testing, he was a little disappointed that I just ran in and yelled I'm pregnant and showed him the test without planning it out a little better to surprise him hhaha sorry honey, it might be #6 for me, but I couldn't contain myself and never even considered not telling you right away!
