Say whaaa...

I promise Im not going to only blog about being pregers...but Let me tell you the story of the day that I found out I was... 
So, sister came down (without the girls) which NEVER happens, we had something to do that day (I cant remember what) but we went to lunch with Jen. At lunch we got to talking about how I think Im pregnant (like I do every month, not because there is a chance AT ALL but because it was my biggest fear) My period wasn't late that I could remember (1. I never know and 2. sorry to write about my period) but my skin was acting foolishly and I had really bad cramps...kind of like it would start at any moment. Moving on, sister was droping me off at my house and as we drove by the Dollar Store she pulled in and said "go buy a pregnancy test" (now, I know what your thinking "really sisters, the dollar store" but this tells you the likelihood of us thinking it was going to be positive) So, I go into the store and grab the test and take it up to the register...this is where it gets good...the lady could not be discreet as hard as she may have tried, about wanting to know why I was buying a pregnancy test. First thing she said was
HER: You need a bag for this?
ME: No, thanks...thats o.k.
HER: No sweetie, you need a bag for this!
ME: No, really thanks
She takes my card...looks at my ring (which isn't a diamond) I think this really threw her for a loop.
HER: So...is that your engagement ring?
ME: Oh, no...its my wedding ring
PAUSE....
HER: So...um... you are married?
ME: Ya, Im married.
This was a very awkward encounter that she and I shared, but I loved her for it...cant blame her for wanting the grease either. I told myself that she thought that I was a teenager in trouble (to make myself feel better of corse) but then I remembered Im like 30.
 We get home, I take the test...I instantly look at it and hand it to sister and tell her it is negative. She says you have to wait more than 5 sec. to know. She sets it down...we wait a min. or two and I go back to it...negative...feeewh!..."look sister you can see and outline of the second line,HA! If I didn't know I wasn't pregnant that might really freak me out" 
 The next moments were filled with squeels of joy from sisty.."it's positive", "what's wrong with you", "Im so excited", "what are you going to name it"
ME: "NO WAY"
 Now, I really didn't except this for a few reasons: 
(Dearest baby, if you ever read this just know that at this time I was a fool, I was very scared and didn't know what was best for me)
  1. It wasn't possible for me to be pregers...Im a VERY careful person
 2. The test was from the dollar store.
So, to make a long story short, I made sister run down to the much fancier walmart and buy me the much fancier equate brand...and yes another positive (even though I went through the exact same..."oh its negitive, I knew it" and Amy looking at it and me like I was crazy "No, Ann its positive again!"

So, hear I am now with this little person growing in my tummy, and I realize that things are not on MY time schedule...they are on the schedule of someone who knows what is much better for me, and Im very thankful for that...

I'm with Amy - I'm laughing and crying. It's such a cute story! I remember when I took a pregnancy test with Cache, same deal - I was waiting the 2 minutes for the test that felt like 4 hours and when it was positive I was like, "no way....no way...". I am so excited for you guys, you are going to be such great parents. Lets play soon!

I am SO excited. Of course I want you to get your gender preference but will secretly be hoping for a boy - so our little lads can beat up on each other. What more can I say? I am just SO SO excited!!

i'll be so disappointed if you don't regularly blog about the peanut! it's so exciting! just so you know, i think the dollar store preggers tests are the way to go! i, like you, think i'm pregnant every month. who can afford that many FANCY tests? even when i'm not stressing about being pregnant, i'll take a test just so my period will come on with it! it's a proven fact... you WILL always start your period within a day of shelling out the bucks for a test (unless you have a peanut, that is:) i feel like i've blabbed t.m.i. for a bunch of folks i've never met. so typical of me! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! your life is going to be even more wonderful than ever before! kids are where it's at! I'm so excited for you!
