Well, I went to the doctor today and he confirmed that i am pregnant!! I do not know if I can do this again but I guess God knows best. No, we were not trying, it was a surprise. We have not told the other two yet we are waiting until I get further along.
I also got a good confirmation. I have a pain in my breast that I have had for about 14 years. The doctors all said that it was a "tenderness" or that it was related to my pregnancy or it was related to my menstral cycle. Over the years it has gotten worse though and I asked to doctor (different doctor) about it again today and he did a breast exam on me and found the spot and said it felt like a cyst. I can feel it when I do my exams but I know what and where I am looking. So he is going to talk with my OB/GYN when i go to them about what my options are. Finally.
Honestly why I have had it so long is my own fault. One, i hate going to the doctor so I never make appointments (unless pregnant) and two, I am timid enough not to fight or argue with the doctor.
On a more distressing note, the doctor did say that he wanted me to completely cut out caffeine, including chocolate!!!!!!!! I do not know if I can handle that. My hubby said that maybe we can work out a rationing of the chocolate, like one a week, but I do not think that is going to cut it. this is going to be a long pregnancy.

Update: If you want a too funny Christmas song go read this.
Another addition: A friend emailed this video to me and I do not know how to put it on my blog but i will give you the link, it is hilarious.

Aww! Congrats on the pregnancy!! How exciting.

Sorry about the breast tenderness. I was always timid around my doctors, too, until the last few years. Now I figure I know more about my body than they do, so they should listen to me, not the other way around.

No caffeine? I couldn't do that. I'm not a big chocolate person, but I'd die without coffee and Pepsi. LOL

Double AWWWWWWWW! VERY Exciting!

If there's one thing I've learned when dealing with some of the arrogant doc's my Mom had- do NOT be timid! Good for you! Many woman have benign cyst that show up like that around cycle time. I'm sure that's all it is.

Congratulations! I do agree that it is going to be a long pregnancy without chocolate though!

AS for doctors, I have to be really sick to visit mine!

Kris, that's wonderful news about the baby. I know you'll do just fine. Hugs to you.

I hope everything goes well with the ob/gyn and that you can get rid of the pain.

Oh geez, no coffee or chocolate? The kiss of death. I don't think going cold turkey will be safe LOL. Good luck - I hope you find something to replace the cravings.
