My First Baby Meme

Sandra tagged with this meme and I decided to get it done right away since we all know how I forget about these things. :D

This is all about you and your first baby...make sure to comment here after you complete.

1. Were you married at the time? Uh... no.
2. What were your reactions when you found out you were pregnant? It was a mixture of pleasure and OMGness.
3. How old were you? 21 when I found out.
4. How did you find out you were pregnant? I'll never forget this: I was at the GYN for another reason and as she was writing me a prescription I started telling her how I was feeling. She just kept saying, "Mmm hmmm, mmm hmmm..." Then I said, "And my breasts are so sore!" She looked up slowly and said, "Could you be pregnant?" I hemmed and hawed for a few minutes before she suggested a pregnancy (after she tore up the prescription!).
5. Who did you tell first? I think I told my best friend first.
6. Did you want to find out the sex? No, at the time when I was in the military they didn't do ultrasounds unless medically necessary.
7. Due date? June 27th, I think.
8. Did you deliver early or late? She was born on the 23rd.
9. Did you have morning sickness? No, just nauseous.

14. Did you have any complications during your pregnancy? Nope.
