Well technically I am pregnant. Andrew is just putting up with the fatigue, random bouts of crying, and me constantly changing my mind about what I want to eat. But we are very excited for the arrival of this little one!
We found out we were pregnant on January 14th. It was a Saturday morning, I was about due to receive my monthly visit from Aunt Flo. I had been kind of crampy the last couple of days like things should be starting but had nothing yet. I woke up early (like 7:00 ish) and had to go to the bathroom and thought to myself, what the heck, I'll just take a test. So I peed on the stick. Nothing really showed up so I left it on the bathroom counter and got back in bed. But I couldn't sleep. So, 30 minutes later, I got up again, went to the bathroom to check the stick and low and behold there were 2 lines! Granted, the one was very faint but there none the less. And yes, I did it. I took a picture.
What?!?!?! I ran back to our room and said "Andrew! I think I'm pregnant!". He woke up and sleepily said "okay" and went back to sleep. Our friends give him a hard time about that.
I took another test (different brand) the next morning just to be sure and it too was positive. Of course I had to tell someone. So, the first person I saw at church was my friend Ali. It was early and pretty quiet and I whispered in her ear "Guess what? I'm pregnant!". She cried which made me cry and was very excited for us.
We told our parents, family, and close friends over the next week or so (more on that in another post) and after waiting a LONG 8 more weeks we finally get to tell everyone else! We are so excited to share this journey with our friends and families. I couldn't find a pregnancy journal that I liked so I figured I could use a blog as a journal. So, I hope you all enjoy hearing about our lives - the good, the bad, and the mundane.
Also, thought you might like to see one of Baby H's first gifts - quite appropriate don't you think? :-) Thanks Grandma Hall!
