The day we found out we were pregnant

I thought it would be fun to share how Ben and I found out that we were going to have a baby! I thought I was a week late and we were at the lake for the weekend.  I started not to feel well on Friday night. I got a horrible migraine headache and went to bed early.  I didn't think much about it since I always get headaches.  However the next day we went on a long boat ride and my head was still hurting.  When we got back to our house, I ended up getting sick twice. Since we were trying to get pregnant, I thought I was late and wasn't feeling well, Ben and I decided we would take a pregnancy test the next morning.  Well Sunday morning I woke up super early around 6:30 or 7am and went into the bathroom.  I took the test and saw a very, very faint pink line.  At this point I was still wearing my glasses so I thought I was seeing things... so I ran back to bed and Ben woke up and saw me smiling ear to ear.  He immediately knew and sprinted to the bathroom.  He saw the same thing I did....a very faint line.  Well we decided to take another test....and another.  All with faint lines.  Long story short...we went and got a digital test and as Ben says... "it was Pregnant with a capital P".  I'll never forget that day...we were so excited to think we'll be parents in 9 months!

Once we found out the test was positive, Ben started to calculate the due date.  He was like "That's perfect, the baby will be due in April... and their birthday will be perfect ....they'll get their licences right before the summer starts....and they'll turn 21 right before the summer!"  I love how he thought about these two things right away!

Finding out that I was pregnant was definitely different than I always imagined.  I thought one day I would wake up and have morning sickness, tender boobs, extremely tired, crazy cravings and consistently starving... Well, I'm not saying none of these happened but it all happened gradually over days and weeks!

I hope you enjoyed our story! The best was sharing the news with our family and friends!
