The day we found out

On November 15, 2011 I got up at 7 a.m. and took a pregnancy test. James knew that I'd be testing that day, and he was still home but didn't know I was doing it at that moment.

You're supposed to wait 2 minutes to read the test results. I probably waited 20 seconds pacing around the bedroom, then looked at the test and was shocked to see a super clear POSITIVE result!!

I took another one the next day, and another two days after that ;)
Right as I realized it, James walked into the room and I said "It's positive. Oh my God. Oh my God. It's positive." (Or something like that). I was in disbelief - I had only seen negative results before and made him check it to make sure I was reading it correctly!

I teared up and started crying, we hugged, and I think we were both extremely shocked and didn't know what to do. We just hugged, smiled and talked about the next steps (when the first doctor appointment would be) for the next 30 minutes until he had to go to work.

Other than that, it was kind of a normal day. I went to do my weekly volunteering at Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services, did laundry and made dinner. Throughout the day I felt a little crampy and maybe more warm than usual but overall felt like regular old me.

Surreal is probably the best way to describe it. It's so hard to imagine at first. Yes we'd been trying for a few months but I had no clue what it would actually feel like to know that we succeeded at creating a little human. It's amazing!!

So exciting! I can't imagine what it would be look to see that confirmation that you are pregnant. Something you think about your entire life and then it finally happens!
