Everyone wants to know how we found out so here it is:
Christmas Eve morning after waking, I took a home pregnancy test. It was immediately positive. I hadn't really expected that and was in total shock. I just stared at it for a few seconds, letting everything register. Then, I started crying. Not just crying though, I started bawling. Kris was downstairs using the other bathroom and I heard him making his way back to the stairs to come up. I walked down the stairs and saw him at the bottom. I couldn't talk because I was crying so hard so I just grabbed his hand and led him back upstairs to the bathroom. He was freaking out and was asking me what happened, what was wrong, etc. He thought the cat had died or something. I think I really upset him. Sorry honey! So we get to the bathroom and all I could do was point at the test on the countertop and then step back. Kris looked at it, turned around to face me with red, tear-welling-up eyes, grabbed me and gave me a big, long hug. That was how we found out we were pregnant.
Now, a few people have asked me why I took the test in the first place, namely Kris. Well, I had bought the tests (there were three in the package) two days earlier (Monday, the 22nd) on one of my many trips to Target. What possessed me to do this? I'm not really sure. I was having a few symptoms but they were all regular PMS symptoms for me. There was a chance we could have been pregnant so I guess I bought the tests just in case. I think I took the test Christmas Eve morning just because if we were pregnant, I kind of wanted to tell our family then. What a neat Christmas present for all of them, I thought. It was still a shock though to see those two very dark pink lines.
I've been feeling exceptionally well, I must say. I have no morning sickness so far (knock on wood.) I only have two symptoms. My breasts are a little tender and I get tired earlier in the evening. That's it. Granted, I'm only 5 weeks along (5 weeks today!) so all this could change at a moments notice. Please keep us in your prayers that we may have a safe, healthy pregnancy and baby.
So, what does two posts in one day look like? Test, test, test! :)
Well, I have the new template up and running. If you find something that isn't working, please let me know. I don't have any of the buttons above linked to anything yet. I'll work on that next and then start adding some more content and actual posts!
