I wanted to start this blog as soon as I found out I was pregnant, but I tried a few times but felt so fake. We wanted to keep our little pip squeak on the DL until I was 12 weeks along, and, like, how is one supposed to talk about normal things when they’re growing something in their stomach?!?! I felt like a fraud.
So yeah…I’m with child (insert all the emojis)!!!!!!
I knew I was pregnant immediately. I don’t know what it was exactly, but I felt distinctly different. I took a couple pregnancy tests everyday but they were all negative…probably because I was only a couple of days pregnant at the time haha. I still knew that I was pregnant though! I read somewhere that the hormone the sticks test are strongest in the morning when you’re very newly pregnant, so that morning I immediately left work and drove to the nearest Harmons to get a test. I obviously couldn't wait so I went into the store bathroom and took the test there #classy. Sure enough, the faintest plus sign appeared. You could just baaaarely see it, but it was there!!
I know you’re supposed to wait and announce it to your husband in a super cute and adorable way, but I’m not cute or adorable and...HELLO!...I couldn’t hold it in all day long!! I'd been telling him I felt pregnant for a while, so it wasn't completely that much of a surprise. I sent him a picture of the test in Harmon’s restroom while he was in class. We were both completely freaking out via text. The rest of the day was a blur…I don’t remember anything else. We were on cloud nine!
So here we are! Officially in the 2nd trimester! Can I get a praise the freaking heavens?!?! Still waiting for the nausea and vomiting to stop. And for the constant bathroom trips to end. Along with gagging over basically every food. But other than that, things are going great and I couldn’t be happier or more excited!!
