**I wrote a few posts over the past few months. These are to catch you up on where I've been.**
See And So It Starts...Part 1 here
I got home from work shortly after my husband did. He was outside with the dogs, so I ran upstairs and grabbed the other test I had in my bathroom. It was one of those that says Pregnant or Not Pregnant. I was worried he wouldn't believe it if he saw the faint line from the regular test. Ok, I'll be honest with you. I was worried it was wrong, too. I was sort of expecting a not pregnant when I took it. The test took forever to show the results but finally, I got a big fat PREGNANT sign on it. Oh what a sight!!
I am now 80% sure that I really am. It's time to tell Hops. He knew I wasn't feeling well all day, so when I came downstairs, he asked me how I was feeling. I told him I was feeling a little better and looked over at him. He kept looking at me and I couldn't help my face. It started smiling. He asked me, "what." I said, "I have to show you something." I took him the two tests. He reacted just how I expected him to, happy and worried. Seriously, ten minutes after I showed him the tests, we were on the phone with his insurance company to make sure I can still move to it in January during open enrollment. Ha! We hugged a lot and we both have certainly gone through some serious emotions these past few days. I'm sure we'll go through a lot more as time goes on.
Today we took my first belly picture. There is no bump yet (of course) but I don't mind my belly fat anymore either. I'm one of those girls who holds most of my fat in my belly. I hope that will help me hide it for another 9 weeks before we start telling people!
