Telling the Parents...

We were able to get in to see a doctor on Friday, and he confirmed it! We are expecting. I am feeling such a huge rush of all different emotions. We are excited, but I've never been more nervous in my life, especially about telling the parents! We have decided to break the news to them in one week from today. We are going to be in Atascadero for Chanel's adoption party. I wanted to come up with a creative way to tell them, so I went to target today to buy some onesies. I also went to a craft store and bought some puff paint. I just spent half the afternoon painting them to say: "I <3 My Grandma", "Grandpa <3's Me", "Uncle's Monkey", and "Auntie Spoils Me". I also bought a little long sleeved t-shirt for Chanel that says "Auntie in Training". We are going to wrap them up and have them all open them at the same time on Saturday morning. I will try to have my camera ready to catch the reaction! Until then it's still hush-hush on the big news!

Thanksgiving Surprise!

This morning I woke up feeling a bit of nausea, and then I realized I was almost two weeks late. I had also seemed to be unusually emotional the past few days, crying over the most stupid things. But I had taken the test once already, about a week ago because I was late and it came up negative. So to ease my mind I decided to take the other test in the package, and much to my surprise it was positive! Before that I thought I may be cursed with the stomach flu on Thanksgiving... WOW! I don't even know what to think. I am happy and excited because I can't wait to be a mommy, but at the same time I am so incredibly scared and nervous about what is to come. This was not exactly planned or expected right now and we have quite a bit to plan for. Thank God pregnancies take nine months, it will give us time to prepare! I'm sure I won't be saying that in nine months when I am about to pop, but for now it sounds good. Please keep us in your prayers as we embark on this journey, that this will be a healthy pregnancy. We also need to find a good OBGYN! I thought this would be the perfect occasion for a first blog... so until next time.
