Newbie and newly pregnant

I'm Sara and I've recently moved to Perth from Brisbane for hubby's job. We've been married 18 months, but been together for over 12 years. Since getting married, I quit the contraceptives and nothing happened. Still, they say everything happens for a reason...I'm convinced that we were meant to make the move over here, and that's why I hadn't fallen pregnant until now.
I'm currently 6 weeks along - gave my hubby the best birthday present on the 8th of Feb, by waving a positive test at him while he was still trying to wake up, LOL.
Anyway, background on us...I've just turned 30. We moved over to Perth in September last year after Ben got a branch manager's position offer with Instant Windscreens. Since he wasn't able to get that opportunity at any of the branches in Queensland, I quit my job at the Royal Brisbane Hospital in the lab, and packed up. I'm working with Instant Windscreens as well, in Inventory and Stock Control (yep, small difference from a scientist!!). We also brought our 8 year old kitty over, once we had a house to live in. All our friends and family are back in Brisbane, and while we talk via Skype or phone calls or even text, I figured I'd jump on here and connect with other people who are experiencing or have experienced what I'm about to for the first time.
Looking forward to getting to know you all!!
