In the middle of all the drama with the pipes at our house I decided to take a pregnancy test. I was about 5 days late and with all the insanity I hadn’t started my period. I figured more than likely it was related to the stress but we had been trying to get pregnant. So I needed to know.
And a little plus sign showed up! I was shocked.
I had all these cute ways I was planning on telling Matt this time. When I found out I was pregnant with J, I cursed and almost fell off the toilet. Then went out to the living room to Matt saying “My boys can swim!” LOL! Such a goof-ball! This time I wanted it to be special. I wanted it to be memorable. I had seen so many cute things on Pinterest that I was dying to try. And then life happens.
I walked in to the bedroom where Matt was on the phone with a possible contractor to fix the pipes. I was waiting till he was finished on the phone before I was going to tell him but he turned and saw me standing there with the test in my hand. He nodded his head and mouthed “And?” I shook my head yes and he said “Holy shit you’re pregnant.” I’m sure that was quite a shock for the contractor on the phone. LOL!
I walked downstairs to talk to my mom who was cleaning.
She said “And?”
“I told you.”
“that’s a good thing right?!”
“Of course! I knew I was.”
I got a big hug and grin from her.
I then walked outside to tell my dad who was taking down Christmas lights.
I said Dad “you want a surprise?”
“The insurance company isn’t going to over the cost of the repairs?!”
“No dad, I’m pregnant.”
“Oh Jesus Christ!!!” He turned and ran off the porch.
I just stood there dumbfounded. He then came back and said congratulations. It was a little unnerving though. Dad is really excited he just doesn’t handle surprises well.
When I went back upstairs J stopped me and said “You have a baby in your tummy mommy?” I told her a I and that she was going to have a baby brother or sister. I asked if she wanted to touch my tummy and she said yes and then patted my tummy. It was precious. J is going to make a great big sister!
I then of course had to make all the notifications to the family members. I asked all of them if they were sitting down before I told them. All of them are excited. I am so grateful for my family. They are so supportive of us it is just amazing!
After the appropriate family members were notified, I had to tell my best friends. I have several. I am lucky like that. Each one of them said that they screamed when I sent them the picture of the test. Nickie was at work (at a bank) so I can just imagine how that went with the customers. LOL! Several said they were grinning like Cheshire cats. This baby is so loved already. We are so lucky. I am so grateful.
By my calculations I was about 5 weeks when we found out and Baby Dees is due in September. We are super excited and can’t wait to meet the little bundle of joy! This has been a blessing with so much other stress going on in our lives.
