So there I was running down the stairs at 7:30AM in a blur the next morning, literally, I didn’t even bother to put in my contacts. I retrieved what I was looking for from a small drawer in the downstairs half bathroom and raced back up to the master bath. It would be better to do it here because.. why? I had no idea why but I was already back upstairs. I ripped open the test, read the instructions carefully. Don’t do it wrong. Can I do it wrong?? I put way too much thought into peeing on a stick properly. I placed the test on the back of the toilet and set the timer on my phone for 2 minutes. I put in my contacts, brushed my teeth, and the timer went off. I picked up the test. Two pink lines. Plain as day. Yahtzee, Bingo, You’re Pregnant – NO question about it.
It’s still hard to believe it and I am 9 weeks today! We are unbelievably excited, ecstatic, overwhelmed with joy – all of the ‘on the edge of your seat’ feelings that there are. We have all of them. I feel so blessed that I was able to tell my Mom in person when I went down to Florida to surprise her for her birthday! It wasn’t planned that way but suddenly I had the perfect present to give her! I signed her birthday card from me, Nate and Baby. I thought she would pass out when she read it! I had already nearly given her a heart attack just by being there, haha. Nate and I told his Mom while we were in Chicago right after the race. He bought a Chicago Marathon baby bib and gave it to her. The look of confusion and then pure OH MY GOSH YAY!!!! was amazing. I’ve never had so much fun telling anyone anything as I did telling our parents this news! So much fun!
It’s been so hard to blog lately because it’s been ALL I’ve wanted to talk about and yet it just wasn’t quite time yet! I can’t wait to share and document this journey here. =) Thanks for being along for the ride, friends!
