We Have an Announcement!!

So, Monday morning I woke up with a little concern. I had an appointment to get my wisdom teeth out on Friday and wanted to make sure before I did that I was sure I wasn't pregnant. I was pretty late this month and had already taken 3 tests which were all negative, but for some reason woke up that morning with that being the first thing on my mind. I rushed out to get a test and took it...... sure enough, I didn't even have to wait the 3 minutes like the box said...


I was in total shock. Definitely overjoyed though! I wanted to tell Chad in a special way and it was so hard to wait all day to tell him, since I took the test first thing in the morning. I called my Mom first and she was so thrilled but I swore her to secrecy until Chad knew. I felt bad for telling my Mom before him, but I was dying to tell someone!! So I came up with a little plan to tell him and went out and bought 2 little outfits, one for a boy and one for a girl and took this picture of the test and printed it and framed it and wrapped it all in a box tied with a green ribbon. When Chad got home, I told him it was an early birthday present since his birthday is on the 16th. When he opened it he must've said "This isn't a joke, right?" 3 times. I was worried about his reaction, but he was definitely excited and in total shock. It only took him about and hour to really have it sink in and then he was beyond thrilled. Here is the picture of him opening the box...

After that, we met my parents for dinner and I gave my dad the same box and told him it was Chad's early birthday present if he wanted to look at it...




We then went to Chad's parents and told them and then to his Grandparent's since they had already invited us over that night. Here's their reactions!




We think Chad's mom might have some psychic powers because she said when we came over Saturday she told Chad's dad she thought I was pregnant!

Chad's Grandparents were so excited to find out they were going to be great-grandparents :)When I talked to the Doctor Monday, they told me I was 6 weeks pregnant. Since it's still so early, I told Chad I wanted to wait to tell a bunch of people until we went to the doctor, but he was so excited he couldn't wait. It was so fun telling the family though, and I will always remember how special it was and how excited everyone is for us. We can't wait for our doctor appt. on Monday! Chad is so cute about the baby, he is spoiling me already and brought home flowers for me last night :) Keep your fingers crossed for us for a happy, healthy pregnancy and baby! We are so excited and feel so blessed and we can't wait for our little baby to arrive!
