On January 11, 2010 we found out little family of two would in 9 months become 3. Shock and awe hit quickly, at least for me, Blake was as cool as a cucumber...I know, crazy right?! :) It took a day or two for my nervouseness and the realization that I was going to be a MOM turned into overwhelming excitement and the realization that I was going to be a MOM!! Yay! We weren't trying and actually had everything "perfectly planned" and wanted to start our little family sometime in 2012...so, we just got a really early start that's all!!
I am not really sure why I decided to take a pregnancy test that morning. I just felt something was different. It wasn't sickness or that I felt physically different in anyway, I guess I just knew. I have taken a pregnancy test before but the only difference from the past couple of times and this time was that before I even set the stick on the counter I saw two lines. "Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh..." was all I could say. I quickly scurried to our bedroom where Blake was still asleep. (I'm giggling right now because I can see me looking just like my mom...when she's in a hurry she scurries. Haha! So cute.) "Blake, I think you should see this. Get up!" Blake rolled over and looked at me, probably thinking, "What does she have to tell me to do??" Haha. But, I gave him the pregnancy test, he looked at it, asked why I was freaking out and then rolled back over. I jumped on the bed, waiting a little bit more of a reaction from him and asked, "You aren't scared?? You aren't freaking out??" He rolled over again to face me and said in his calm tone (He is 99.9% always calm...something I find so curious and hard to understand. I know, crazy right?!), "No, I think it's great." His reaction made me feel a little bit more at ease as it always does.
So, that's how we found out the exciting news and each day that passes the less and less anxious I feel and the more and more I fall in love with this little bundle! I have been feeling great besides a few incidents where a certain food (chicken mostly for now) made me sick. I am so far enjoying pregnancy and just can't wait to see what the baby looks like!!
Until next time,
