The First Day I Found Out I Was Pregnant




Hi everyone!
Well, if you've made it to my blog then you may have seen on social media that we're pregnant!!!
I'm so excited to finally be sharing this news with everyone.

I really wanted to share the story of the FIRST official day we found out because it was one of the most surreal and happiest moments of my life.

Quick backstory, Will and I had been trying for about 9 months. So I had taken quite a few pregnancy tests by this point, and every month I always felt that twinge of disappointment when a negative result was shown.
So when the month of January rolled around, I was trying so hard to relax, not think about it, but still stay hopeful. I promised myself I wouldn't even attempt to take a pregnancy test until the second day my period was supposed to come. Well that day came, January 27th, and I woke up so freaking early because I was so nervous, anxious and excited.

At 6:30 am I snuck to the bathroom while Will still slept and took the test.
As I stood there this morning watching the line slowly begin to appear, before I could even blink I saw the second line coming in.
I literally gasped, put my hand over my mouth and began crying. TWO LINES?!

I was pregnant.

It was truly unbelievable. I was laughing and crying and just taking in the moment to myself for about 3 minutes.

I went out to our bedroom and woke Will up clutching onto the test. "Babe," I said through the tears, "we're pregnant!!"
He immediately hugged me and teared up himself and the first thing he said was "See! I told you we could get pregnant."

It was a moment I will never forget.

The rest of the day was pretty funny. We had friends in town and had to meet them super early because Will was going to spend the day making sports bets with them at the casino and the girls and I were going to go to the spa. I immediately started freaking out because I knew we had planned to go into the hot tub at the spa, and how was I going to explain to my friends that I couldn't??

After too much ridiculous thinking about this, I decided to just tell them I was pregnant. They were SO happy for us. We all jumped up and hugged and laughed and it was a fun moment getting to tell someone for the very first time.

The rest of the day was awesome. We had a great day at the spa getting pedicures, pampering and relaxing but the whole time all I could really think to myself was Omg... I'm pregnant. I'm really seriously pregnant. It was such a surreal day.

So that is our little story.
Stay tuned for more posts about that excruciating wait for my first 7 week appointment and how my first trimester went!
