I found out I was pregnant with my first child on March 17, 2005 at 5:00 a.m. I woke Matt up to tell him and he asked if I "took the test correctly." Of course, dear. There really aren't that many ways to pee on a stick! Ha ha.
We told Matt's parents straight out that I was pregnant because I was supposed to help cook for a branding but instead threw up all morning and slept on the couch. With my parents we wrote up a little poem about coming home from Mexico with a souvenir--"The best souvenir, remember, will be here in early December ... " (I should mention I got pregnant in Mexico while on a vacation with my parents. Eww factor, big time!).
My next two pregnancies didn't make it :( Valuable lessons learned in not telling people too early.
I found out about my last pregnancy on September 20, 2009. I had just finished co-hosting my sister-in-law's baby shower and had a hunch. A pregnancy test at my in-laws house confirmed my suspicions (I don't know what it is about finding these things out with family but that's how it goes with us. I could really gross my brother-in-law out by mentioning we got pregnant in his bed. Sorry Josh). One of my BFF's Jessica literally guessed I was pregnant 10 weeks later ("Your face looks a little round. How far along are you?). We told our parents shortly after that.
This was my fave maternity picture. Unique and retro--Love it!
Tell me about your pregnancy (ies). Did you share the news in a unique manner? Were you sick for nine months? Did you only gain three pounds?
