I’m pregnant! This is the most exciting day of my life. Now, I’m not one of those people who didn’t realize my period was late and ended up 5 months pregnant or something crazy like that. I literally took the test THE DAY I was late. I really didn’t think I was pregnant because I didn’t feel any symptoms whatsoever. I just took the test for the heck of it. I didn’t even think a test would be positive that early. So I took the test and then went to make the bed. After 3 minutes, I went into the bathroom to look at it, not expecting to see anything. I saw a plus sign! I looked in the mirror and said, “holy shit!” Then I went to read the directions, even though I’ve taken tests in the months before and knew what a positive should look like. Sure enough, plus = positive! 

Of course Stew was working in Beaufort, 2 hours from home, which meant LONG DAY. I didn’t want to call and tell him over the phone, so I just had to wait. I decided I would go to work and get on with my day, business as usual. Ok easier said than done…

I get home from work and was waiting for Stew to come home. He called me around 4:30. He usually calls me when he’s about an hour away. I thought, “oh good he’ll be home soon!” Not so much…He was calling to tell me that they’re waiting on the cement truck that’s running late, and they haven’t even left Beaufort yet! So I said “Ok. See you when you get home” as calmly as possible. He got home at 7 exhausted and filthy. So I let him shower and get his PJs on. In order for this story to make sense, I need to back up a few days. I was feeling so bloated (not realizing why!) and I said something to Stew. He said, “I think you look cute”. So I said, “it would be cute if it was a baby belly and not a food belly”. Ok, now back to present time. I met him upstairs and put my arms around his neck and said, “It turns out it’s a baby belly and not a food belly!” He said, “WHAT? Tell me everything!!!” then picked me up and spun me around. We couldn’t stop smiling all night! I can’t wait to see what this journey brings!!
