Growing a Human - Whoa...I'm Pregnant!!!

Cramps....sore boobs....no period.....what's up???

I guess I had always envisioned figuring out I was pregnant after hanging my head in a toilet from morning sickness.  So without even a little dabble of morning sickness (......yet.....), I wasn't thinking too much of it.  Two days late on my period....I began to wonder.

I had a pregnancy test hiding in my bathroom closet (one left from a box of two from previously wondering if I was pregnant).  It was about 6:00am on Friday, March 12th.  I woke up to get ready for work and decided to settle my paranoia and pee on a stick....

......I'm pretty sure I had to rub my eyes twice and a third time and a fourth.  I must still be sleepy and I'm imagining those two lines that just appeared.  I grabbed the box - maybe I wasn't exactly even sure how to read this thing.  I'm still sitting on the toilet with my underwear around my ankles.  What exactly does one do now?  I figured the best thing was to wipe, flush, wash my hands and then.....go wake the father of my baby. 

"Umm, Adam.....wake up, please......Adam?  I need to you to wake up, please.  I may have just taken a very important test and I need so share the results.......Adam???  Please, wake up!!!"

This method was barely even effective in getting him to roll away from me to fall back asleep.  I needed another tactic. 

The most effective way of waking up a man out of a dead sleep?.....only three words are needed:  "Babe, I'm pregnant."

The rest of the morning was a blur.  My hands were shaking and I couldn't wipe the smile off my face.  Adam grabbed the video camera and asked me a few questions and captured some footage of the magical pregnancy test - as magical as a plastic stick that I had recently peed on can be.  I still had to go to work!!

I grabbed another test on the way to work and took it alone in a stall.  Another positive!!  I called Adam - still unable to wipe the same smile off my face.  We were pregnant!

I love hearing about how people found out they were pregnant. It puts a smile on MY face.

Me, too. I'm smiling as well. (Wish you'd had a video of Adam waking up to those "3 little words." LOL)
