I found out about you in Whole Foods

August 22nd.

We had been actively 'trying' for you for a few months- and I was getting SO frustrated! Then this past month we decided no more trying. No more looking at the calendar to see when I was ovulating. So imagine my surprise..

Your dad has a hunch about these things. He had it with your big brother Jasper and he had it with you. He randomly sent me a text yesterday asking when my period was supposed to come ( Sorry if that's TMI, but you will learn soon enough that in this family? We share everything) 

I hadn't even thought about it, since remember? No calendar looking. It was due yesterday. Not weird at all since I've been late frequently since we started 'trying' for you. Still didn't think anything really of it- but on our way to Whole Foods we decided to swing by Safeway to pick up a test to take later that evening.

As we pull in I have the urge to pee- I grab the test and think why not? At least I will find out I'm not so I can have some wine with dinner.

Jasper went in the stall next to me, and within 2 seconds, two lines appeared. TWO! I'd been seeing one line for months that for a second I couldn't breathe. 

We washed our hands and headed out to wear your dad was waiting. He knew instantly from the big grin on my face. I kept saying "Oh my gosh aren't you SHOCKED!" He responded " Nope, I just knew"

At home I had to take another test, just to double check. And there it was again. 2 lines. 

I couldn't possible be more thrilled. Or excited. Or nervous. 

I keep touching my stomach and getting goose bumps. Last time around I had no idea the love I could have for another person. This time, I know. 

I had planned on not posting this for weeks- but I just Can't keep it in any longer! We aren't telling people for a few more weeks, till our appointment on September 19th- but I haven't told anyone in real life about this blog- so I needed Somewhere to let it out!!
