I took a pregnancy test on Monday, November 25, 2013 and what I saw next changed everything! Only I wasn’t super sure I saw what I thought I saw. If I squinted and tilted and squinted some more, maybe there was a line?
I felt so nervous about this “positive” test. I wanted it so badly but I didn’t want to get anyone’s hopes up just yet. I really wanted to see that line get a little darker. And that’s when it hit me! Your daddy’s birthday is in 4 days (fell on Thanksgiving this year) and if the line continues to get darker, I’ll surprise him on his birthday! Genius right?! Totally. Except…. it.was.torturous. I had a HUGE secret and I had to keep it a secret for 4 days!!! That’s an eternity when you’re holding something like that in!! Haha. It was so so so hard! Someone how I managed though. I took multiple tests a day and would compare them back to the day before and every day the line would get darker. So overjoyed!
And of course, the family photo:
So, the details! Baby is due August 8th (our wedding anniversary!) and so far all looks great! Next post will be the beginning of the belly photos and an update of symptoms and how things are going. 🙂
