That week was stressful like normal because it was the week before school started. I'm actually glad it was, because it kept my mind off of obsessively thinking about whether I might be pregnant or not! Open house was that Friday night and Friday was the day that I was supposed to have my period. After the day was over, I still hadn't had my period so I thought things were looking pretty good!
I woke up Saturday morning, 8-20-11, at 7:00. Bryan was still asleep, so I knew it was the perfect time to take a pregnancy test. I snuck off to the bathroom, grabbed 2 Walmart tests from my secret stash, peed in a cup, and started the timer for my 2 minutes. I checked Facebook until my 2 minutes were up, and then it was time to check. I looked at the tests and the first thing I saw was 2 pink lines! I was like, "Wait! What do 2 lines mean again?!" So I looked on the box and saw that it meant PREGNANT! I was so in shock. I immediately took the 2nd test, and right off the bat, I saw 2 lines pop up! I didn't react like I thought I would. I didn't cry, I didn't panic. I was just excited and calm!
After I was done, I hid all my evidence and went back to bed. However, I layed there for like 5 minutes, before realizing there was NO way I was going to be able to go back to sleep. Therefore, I snuck out into the living room and got on my computer to research all the information I could find. Yes, I'd googled things about pregnancy online before, but this time it was different. This time I was actually pregnant! I researched information about my pregnancy, when my due date was, etc. From several websites I visited, they said my due date ranged from April 27-May 2nd. So basically, I knew the baby would arrive either during the last week of April or the first week of May.
After I finished all my researching, I decided to clean the house until Bryan woke up. When he did wake up, I did a great job staying cool and collected and acted like nothing life changing had happened to me that morning! ;) I then began to hash out my plan of how I was going to tell Bryan that we were pregnant. See, what Bryan didn't know was that I had planned out exactly how I wanted to tell him, and I had bought everything and had it ready since, oh back in May! I'd just been waiting on my perfect timing!
Little did Bryan know that his whole life was going to change later that evening! ;)
