Hello friends! I can't believe its been over a month since my last post. I just have not had many creative ideas/recipes. My brain has been completely on the fritz so this post may be all wacky and some of it may sound like I am rambling but please bear with me. This is going to be a long post so sit back and enjoy with your favorite snack and beverage! lol
The Saturday after we got back home, I was really feeling lousy and my......TMI is coming so either skip this paragraph or bear with me........ period was about 4 days late. We were already headed to the Dollar Tree so I bought 2 pregnancy testfrom there. I have used their brand before but wanted to just make sure of it. lol I seriously wasn't expecting a positive because since I had Tucker my periods have been not as scheduled as they used to by. Sometimes I would be a few days to a week late but since I was feeling sick I went ahead and bought some.
We then headed to do some grocery shopping at Publix so I took one there. It took under a minute for it to say pregnant! To say I was surprised is an understatement! lol I mean I knew it might be a possibility but definitely did not expect it to seriously say positive. I told Jeremy and he was ectastic! Once we got home I took the other one and it also said positive but the second line wasn't as bright as the first but it was still there. Well I still wasn't convinced since I just felt sick not pregnant so I sent Jeremy to Walmart to buy one of theirs. I took it as soon as he got back and guess what it said?! lol Pregnant!!! My heart was pounding thinking about the responsibility of another little life but I know God has a plan and purpose for this little one.
We didn't tell anyone except our immediate family then. Our families are so excited! I was very nervous to tell my Mom because I thought she would be upset so I made Jeremy call and tell her. LOL She was so excited she was busting at the seams wanting to tell people! This seriously made me so happy and I love to see her excitement! We did start telling a few people that we knew wouldn't tell just because we were all getting so excited. Of course, we are praying for a girl and I feel 100% it is a girl but we will see!
I think it really hadn't sunk in when I found out yet for me because even though I felt sick, I didn't feel pregnant. You see the last two times I have been pregnant I could tell right away. I just felt different. With this one, I still don't have that feeling but I know I am definitely pregnant. I went to the Dr yesterday for my first blood work to be done and to fill out all the info. I am 7 weeks today and due December 15th! So it looks like we will have an early Christmas present this year!
We announced it on Facebook Tuesday night like this:
Tucker has an announcement!!!
I know that it is not an original idea but for some reason I just wanted to do it that way. Plus my brain is far to crazy right now to think of anything else. Everyone has been so excited and surprised so far and it is so fun. I just can't wait to get past this wonderful morning sickness......or weakness for me.....stage so I can have more energy and be able to keep my house clean.
Jonah said he isn't going to be happy about the new baby until he turns 5, in October, but he has been talking about and asking about it almost everyday since then so he is warming up to it rather quickly. Tucker has no clue about what's coming, lol, but we are praying he adjusts well. He is a big Momma's boy so its going to be a big adjustment for him. I am already praying he does well.
Thank you for reading and I will keep you all updated!
