Here's the little story about how I found out I was pregnant and how I told Justin.
The background information is that this is our second pregnancy. We lost the first pregnancy at 7 weeks and had been waiting 3 months to try again. We, apparently, didn't try hard enough to wait because we got pregnant again about 2.5 months into our waiting period. So, that made our new pregnancy a little surprise... a very happy and welcome surprise.
Justin had no idea what was coming, but I suspected just a little. The day my period was supposed to come, I felt like my period was not on it's way. I nervously got out the 99 cent store preggo test I bought and tried it out. The results confused me even more. Below is a pic of the test that confused me (It's a typical i phone blurry close up pic). The line was so light, I was sure that it was a mistake. I honestly thought it was a water mark where the results normally show up. I called Blythe, my pro pregnancy friend, to help me clear up the matter. I emailed it to her and she was sure it was positive.
I didn't want to get my hopes up until I tried a test that was expensive. I got out my brand name EPT and tried it when I got home from work. Waiting for preggo results kills me. It is so nerve wracking. So, the expensive test gave me the same result... a faint line. I immediately started thinking of cool ways I could tell Justin since he had no idea. He would be home from work soon so I ran around the house trying to figure out how to present him with the news. I got out our little piglet from D-land that I got right after my miscarriage and tied the preggo test in his arms. I stuffed it in a bag. When justin got home, I told him I got him a gift and he willingly accepted it. He opened it up and looked at me with a confused face and said "Really?". He was excited and shocked at the same time.
So, that's the story. I love hearing people's stories of how they found out and all the cool ways you can tell a dad. Right now I am 14 weeks and counting. I am so happy that it has gone well so far. Currently Justin calls our baby 'Lemon' since thats just about our baby's size.
