The post on finding out and telling Kristian he's going to be a dad

I wrote this post on Thursday April 21st, one day after finding out I was pregnant (and actually believing it) and telling Kristian.

I'm still in shock and disbelief but after four yes FOUR positive tests I guess I should start to believe it. I'm PREGNANT!!!!! I never thought I would get to say/type those words but there they are and I couldn't be more thrilled/scared/happy/shocked. I never thought it would happen this quickly though when you factor in my wonky and extremely long cycle I guess it wasn't really that quick, we just got the timing right when it counted.


I took my first test, which was a cheapy one that came with my pack of OPK's this past Monday at 10DPO, not expecting anything, but much to my surprise there was a faint but noticeable second line. I didn't truly believe it so on Tuesday morning I tested again with another cheapy test and once again there was a faint second line. Now I was starting to believe maybe this was something serious, so at lunch on Tuesday I went to CVS and splurged on a Clear Blue digital test, one that says Pregnant or Not Pregnant. None of this two line bullshit. I needed a solid answer and Wednesday morning April 20th I got a Pregnant on my test!!!

My reaction was similar to when my husband proposed which was to say "Oh My God, Shut up!" 5 or 6 times. I then cried (happy tears of course). I debated waiting to tell Kristian until Friday (two days later) which is our 11 month wedding anniversary but after about an hour I realized I didn't have that kind of willpower. Even if it was a fluke he needed to know about it.

So at lunch I went to Target to get him some goodies. I bought a frame that said "Babies" along with some text about how wonderful babies are and then inside the frame put a piece of paper that said "Picture to deliver in 9 months". I also bought him a onesie that says "I Love My Daddy".

Wednesday night when he got home I told him I found him something when shopping at Target and handed him the frame. He looked at it for what seemed like forever and finally said "I don't get it". Then a few seconds later he looked at me and goes "Are you pregnant?". I told him that according to the pregnancy tests I've taken I am. He was shocked and I don't think he believed me right away. Once he realized I wasn't messing with him he got tears in his eyes and he couldn't stop hugging me. I showed him the test and gave him the onesie. Cue more hugging and happy tears. We spent the rest of the night laughing and smiling and saying that we couldn't believe it.

I took another cheapy test this morning (Thursday) and once again got two lines. I'm now addicted to peeing on things and continuing to get more confirmation that it's real. I'm hoping to see the doctor next week to confirm 100%. It really is amazing and I'm just trying to stay positive about the whole thing. I'm going to be a mommy!!

How sweet!

I think taking MANY test is absolutly normal (or at least that is what I told myself..)

Waiting for 2 days would have been some crazy willpower lady!

Meg said...

That is just so sweet! I always think about the way I'll tell Phillip when we finally get pregnant. I can't wait to see your beautiful preggo belly and your beautiful little peanut!

What an awesome way to share the news!!! I just walked out of the bathroom in shock with tears rolling down my face (happy/confused/tears of disbelief) and silently handed my husband the test haha

in response to your question the other day, I offered to work from home but my work said no and filed short term disability (maternity leave) papers. My position is being held..... but honestly we are not quite sure what our plans are regarding me going back


congratulations again!!!

So sweet! Congratulations :)

"addicted to peeing on things" hahaha, I love it! I think I took 4 tests before I decided to stop wasting my money - because the answer was always the same. POSITIVE!

Congratulations! I've followed from the proposal, the wedding, and everything in between and now this! Every time you did a 6 month post or how ever long you had been married, I could never believe it had actually been that long! It must be flying for you guys too.
Congrats again, and it's an adorable way you told him :)
