6 for 6

There it is. The first test...and it's glorious.

But seriously, tough luck for you if you think that's gross since, you end of that is covered in my urine. I didn't take a picture of that end though! (Plus there's a cover that goes on that end)...moving on.

So the day we found out I took two tests. I was convinced. HOLYCRAPWE'REPREGNANT! I mean two tests right? That's pretty legit. A couple days later I had to stop at Walgreens for something. I'm always at Walgreens for something. It's basically right outside our we're there a lot. And I picked up two more tests. I took those...and obviously they were positive. I have felt great about the fact we're pregnant. I'm so incredibly happy I don't think I've stopped smiling since that first test. All of that kind of goes without saying though.

I am a little scared though. I'm only about 5 weeks (although some people think I'm further along). I haven't been to the doctor yet (still getting annoying insurance taken care of). I can't help but think of..well you know. It's such a crazy thing though...because that part makes me worry and then I think about the fact that I'M PREGNANT and I get so freaking excited and it's hard not to plan and think and dream (what a run-on...). Matt and I have talked names...but nailed nothing down. I bought one little sleeper. I just don't 'feel' pregnant yet. I've had plenty of people reassure me that everything will be okay and Matt has been more than supportive, but guess what I did today?

Went and bought another box of tests. And took them. So total over a week I have taken 6 tests....and guess what?

Every single one of them was positive.

We have made a decision.

Matt and I have been going back and forth with the decision to cancel the 'wedding'. See, it's not an actual wedding, more of a party/ring ceremony thing. It wasn't going to be a big deal. The one thing it was going to was to cost money. With the baby coming there are things that are more important to spend money on. For one, we need a new car. For two, we also need to move into a bigger apartment.

So for the most important reason in the world, we have decided to cancel it.

Oh yeahhhh

Yesterday, March 25, 2011. I took a test. In my 13+years of education...I took hundreds of tests. Those tests were important at the time, but this test was life changing.

We're having a BABY.

Yup, you read that right. We're going to be PARENTS! Just two days after we went and bought our first fur baby, we found out we're going to have a real live human baby.

It's an absolute amazing feeling knowing that right now, at this very moment...I'm growing a human...inside of me. haha!

We immediately called Matt's mom. Then we called my parents...over and over and over again. I think I called my dad about 5 times and called their house phone 5 times. I called my mom a whole bunch too, but then realized she was probably at work! Finally my dad called back; after leaving a voice mail saying there was an emergency. (What?! Don't is pretty important news!) Then we went over to Jeff and Tracy's house. See, all of our family is in town this weekend for my 'bridal' shower so they were all over there. We get in the house and call Madison (niece) over. Everyone was in the living room and we had her tell everyone she was going to be a cousin! It was awesome. Tracy and Amanda high-fived because now they're 'off the hook' for awhile! haha

Matt and I are incredibly blessed to be bringing a baby into such a wonderful family.

AHHHH I'm so excited!!!!
