Omigoodness. It’s true.
I was about 3 weeks late, figured I better take a test. It’s not unusual for me to be late, but this is REALLY late. 7:00 am, Jamie just left for work. I placed it on the counter, and took a peek at the little window, even though you’re supposed to wait 5 minutes. OMG two lines!!! TWO!!!
Oh my god, oh my god oh my god!!!! I ran and woke up Lexi, picked her up and danced around – we’re having a baby!!!!! Immediately got on thebump.com, and everywhere else. Too early to call the OB, and I had questions!! At 9:02 am, called our OB to make an appointment. “Hi, this is Kristen Carlson, I’m a patient of Dr. F, and I just got a positive pregnancy test! Eee!” She’s ordering a prescription for prenatal vitamins for me, and bloodwork for tomorrow. I’m pregnant!!!! So happy, so excited. Can’t wait to tell Jamie! Spent all day smiling and peeking at the stick again. Can’t wait for him to get home!!! Had cereal for lunch, puked it up. Wow, this happens fast 😉
According to the first day of last period method, we’re at 7.5 weeks, due around April 29!
4:15 pm: Tied a ribbon around Lexi’s neck, the one from my wedding dress. Put in a little note that says, “Mama’s Pregnant!!! We love you Daddy, Lexi & Baby” He opened it, looked up at me smiling and said, “Are you kidding?” I cried, shook my head, he grabbed and hugged me, we both laughed and smiled, and laughed some more, we’re pregnant!!!!
We had an event with friends and colleagues that night, and it was VERY hard to hide our excitement. But we managed. Gotta tell our parents first!
