Happy Thanksgiving and a little surprise!

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?

first prego test first prego test2I 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!

After the loss of our first pregnancy, we took a much needed vacation to Costa Rica to enjoy each other and clear our minds. Well, as luck would have it, we brought home much more than great memories and great tans...our own little Costa Rican souvenir. Here is our journey!
