How we found out we were expecting baby # 2, or ‘baby H” as we’ve affectingly started calling him/her.
Last Friday my mom, sister Haley, friends Deb, Donna & Jessica took off for the day to Watch Cheer Iowa for a day of flee market finds. Its about an hour and a half away so on the way home my girlfriend Jessica & I were talking about our kids & the upcoming “holiday” of Mother’s Day. We took bets on what our husbands would do etc. J (to our credit we pegged them correctly!) I had casually mentioned I was late on my cycle and Jessica had suggested I take a pregnancy test on Mothers day--how fitting. I thought that was a really cool idea, but the day came and between visiting all the moms/grandma’s I hadn’t had time to get a pregnant test from the store. I had casually mentioned to Ryan I have been late, but we weren’t thinking BABY. So Monday comes and my friend Jessica & I were texting --to see if our assumptions of Mother’s Day were correct and she asked me if I had taken a pregnancy test and I said no. So she happily offered to get a pregnancy test for a “pee party” after small group the next night. J So, after small group we went to the restroom & both peed on the pregnancy tests…and we had no longer than put them on the counter & my friend yelled…”YOUR PREGNANT!!!” I looked at the stick in complete disbelief!! It was as if my mind was saying CANNOT COMPUTE, CANNOT COMPUTE …we laughed & hugged and I all the sudden yelled “ I GOTTA GET RYAN!” So I went out pulled Ryan into the womens bathroom with a HUGE smile on my face & he was equally surprised, but excited! What a fun way to find out! Although this has been a HUGE surprise we are excited to meet this little one come December! We’re unsure on the due date, however I go into my first OB appointment the 24th so hopefully I’ll know a little more after that. In the meantime we’re calling this little baby: “baby h!” If I were to guess I am roughly 10 weeks along.
