My daughter was four months old when I started to feel very tired, and all I wanted to do was sleep. I didn't think anything of it – after all, I had a 4-month-old and was working a full-time job at a daycare. Anybody would be tired! And then I missed my period. Number two is on the way!

With me, my taste buds changed. I wasn't nauseated or anything, but when I had dinner one night the food just tasted incredible – I had never had anything like it before. I could suddenly smell things a lot better, and absolutely couldn't stand the smell of certain things, such as eggs.
I knew something was up when the thought of beer made me nauseous – I love beer. So I took a pregnancy test the morning of my husband’s birthday and it was positive. I walked in the bedroom woke him up and said "Happy birthday, Daddy!"

I've never kept very good track of when I was supposed to start my period. I would just get cramps a few days before, so I'd know it was coming. Well, I started complaining to my boyfriend at the time that my breasts were really sore. He replied, "You do realize that you were supposed to start your period over a week ago, right?" I was like, "WHAT?? Are you sure?" I went to the store and bought the cheapest test thinking that it was just so I could prove to him that I wasn't. He was asleep when I took it and it turned positive within seconds. I woke him up and put the stick up to his face. I asked him, "Do you know what this means?" He just smiled and rolled back over.

On the day I was due for my period I went to the doctor's because I thought I had a bladder infection. After the test, my the doctor came in and said, “Well, you do have a bladder infection – and you're pregnant!” I cried and laughed at the same time.

I actually just had a feeling. I was only a day-and-a-half late (and I wasn't that regular anyway), but it turned out my intuition was right!
Amy, due soon
