Pregnant & I know It!

GUYS! I'm having another baby! I've been wanting to be pregnant again since Amelia turned one back in February. But Danny had some reservations still. We talked about it off and on. Everyone knew I wanted another baby. I even blogged about it a little bit recently. Overall though, I have been fairly patient. We came to the decision that after we got settled into our new basement apartment {which we're moving to in less than four weeks}, we could begin trying to conceive. Danny wanted me good and healthy and not throwing up for the move. I was totally on board with him so we planned to wait.

Until one night, he's all, "I've been thinking... what's a couple months?" And I'm thinking What the heck? Where did this come from?? We talked about it more. He said that he felt silly for wanting to wait just two more months when it really wouldn't making that big of a difference. We had already talked a few months ago about what it would look like IF we had a baby while living with David and Lindsey. We came to the conclusion back then that it would work out juuuuust fine.

This is the best part! Then Danny said, "Plus, it's not like you're going to pregnant right away. It will probably be a couple months." I asked him, "Well, have you thought about what it would be like if I did get pregnant this month?" His response? "Then you would be pregnant. But like I said, you probably won't be..." Famous last words. :)

Fast forward a week and a half... I was feeling SO TIRED! I'm a night owl usually. I go to bed around midnight, at the earliest. And when I lay down, it takes me a few minutes to fall asleep. Last weekend, I was ready for bed at 10 pm. I'd stumble into bed, hit the pillow, and not even remember falling asleep!

I knew it. I was 3.5 weeks pregnant.

After three days of this extreme tiredness, I took a Dollar Tree pregnancy test. But I kind of did it secretly because I knew I was really early still. The likelihood of a positive was slim. And Danny would say I was impatient. :) {Well, I am.} It was so faintly positive that I wasn't sure if I was really seeing what I was seeing. So I very sheepishly approached Danny and said, "Um. So. I have a confession..." He knew right away. And he saw the line, as well! That was Monday, July 30th.

I took a test on Tuesday. Darker second line. Postive.
I took a test on Wednesday. Even darker second line. Positive. {4 weeks pregnant}
I took a test on Thursday. Both lines showed up at the same time. Definitely positively positive.

two lines = baby #2 on the way!

As I write this, I am 5 weeks pregnant. I'm excited to blog through this pregnancy!
