Secret’s Out!

August 12, 2008

A week ago was our 2 year wedding anniversary. It was also a day we won’t forget for other reasons. It was the day we found out that I’M PREGNANT!

Yep. I’m pregnant. Knocked up. Prego.

Here’s what I wrote that day:
August 5, 2008

I’m in a state of complete shock.

Last night on the way home I stopped to buy a pregnancy test, nothing out of the ordinary since I’m always paranoid. The only difference this time is when the digital reading read “pregnant.” I wasn’t going to tell Reid til after I went to the dr. and found out for sure, but I couldn’t help it. I had an emotional breakdown, according to him. Not my finest moment, that’s for sure.

The next morning I headed to the doc-in-a-box to get a blood test done. I joked with the nurses doing my bloodwork about how there’s just no way I’m pregnant. Three of the nurses stood around waiting for my results…they started shaking their heads “yes.” Finally, I shouted “Tell me!!” And they did.

“Shoot, girl, you pregnant.” The words that changed my life. Then, they had to console me because I couldn’t stop shaking or crying hysterically. After telling Reid on the phone, I drove over to see Magen, where I brokedown once again.

It would be on our 2 year anniversary that I find this out! I can’t wait to tell our parents and family, but I want to do it in person, so I’ve gotta wait. This is just crazy. There goes our 5-years-with-no-babies-plan. Oh well! I’m so excited!!

It’s not what we planned, but God knows better and we’re trusting him during this adventure. We can’t wait to meet our son/daughter! (Now, lets just hope its not twins, haha!)
