I wanted to record the events that occurred when we found out that we were expecting a little one, so here it goes (it's pretty entertaining)!
First, I have to share a testimony of fasting. We all did a big fast when Andrew was getting ready to take his DAT test this summer. I fasted for him, of course, but also for a couple different things as well..... We had been contacting Del Sol hoping to do an internship for the next year before dental school, along with that in the back of my mind I thought/prayed, "and if you really want to, a baby wouldn't be bad either..." This is proof that God knows your thoughts!
Within a week, Andrew did amazingly on his test, we got offered the Del Sol job, and well...you know the rest.
The day I took a pregnancy test went like this:
MaryBeth and I went to Busch Gardens in 100 degree 1000% humidity walked all over the place, rode roller coasters, ate breadsticks, had frozen lemonade. It was awesome. Somewhere randomly in the back of my mind the thought came across that I should probably go get a test to take when I get home, so I did. I got home, took the test, and I think my eyes about popped out. Am I imagining that line? I didn't even know what to say or think, I was just so excited! I sat it on the counter, and went into the bedroom to figure out what to tell Andrew. Of course, I walked out and he was standing right there. "I didn't hear you flush the toilet" he said. I said, "ya.....you should probably go in there and look at something" He did and then said, "Who did you get to pee on that?" He DID NOT even believe me for a long time. I was just laughing knowing I would get to tell this story some day. I told him to go get another test to a. prove it and b. make sure it wasn't a dud test. He brought home like 3 tests and they were all positive!
In his defense, after he believed me he grabbed my face and kissed me so sweetly, he was so excited!
We told our parents the next day, we used an idea we got from Nicole's family. She had just gotten back from a family reunion where all the grandkids wore a number on the shirt depicting the order of grandchild they were (it was like 1-99 or something! ;)) We got a little onsie and put a big #1 on it, taped the pregnancy test under it, and wrapped it up to give to her. Their reaction was awesome, they are so excited for their first grandchild!
I don't know what makes me smile more:
Thinking of Andrew as my baby's dad and how awesome he's going to be
Thinking that my mom is going to be a GRANDMA
They are both pretty awesome thoughts!
Here is the difference between 7 and 12 weeks:
No baby bump yet, with all the getting sick I've actually lost weight so far. I can't wait until I look pregnant to match how I feel on the inside!
