Thanks for all the well wishes. Its been a bit of a roller coaster emotionally, but I'm trying to take it a day at a time and remember who is in control.

Telling Batman was pretty anticlimactic. The Friday before I left for Seattle (and the same day my parents came into town) I broke down and poas. In the past he's been a little torqued that I've kept him out of the loop so a few days prior I let him know that I thought I might be, in fact, knocked up again. So, anyway in the wee morning hours (because of course I couldn't sleep) I snuck into the bathroom and got it over with. And right away, just like with Brynna the positive line came up and super dark. Batman was working a weird shift that day so I left him sleeping while B and I went and met my parents at cracker barrel for breakfast. I just left the test sitting on the counter for him to see when he woke up and started getting ready. We stayed away from the house for a while until he called and said he was up and getting ready for work.
At first when I came in and asked him what he thought (in private) he was kind of skeptical because he thought the horizontal control line was the test line. After I pointed out just which one meant positive, he realized it was a pretty stark positive.
And of course he didn't/ doesn't want us to tell anyone until our first ob appt. where we get a little confirmation. So I went off to Seattle with Brynna for 10 days and had to keep it under wraps the whole time... Even though I really really REALLY wanted to tell my mom.
So here we are. According to lmp I'll be 8 wks on Monday. Which puts edd sept 9. Wednesday will of course tell us a lot more. :)

I'm excited, nervous, emotional etc. morning sickness kicked in full force just like with B at 6 wks. Along with exhaustion, sore boobs the whole lot.

And now I wait 4 more excruciating days.

I'm SO happy for you guys! Hearing that m/s and sore boobs have set in is reassuring. Couple that with how dark that test was and I'm praying that this little one sticks for a grand debut in September. I know the next 4 days seem like they're taking forever but keep yourself busy (I'm sure Miss B will help with that) and you'll be there before you know it. Congrats again!
