We found out the big news on Saturday, Oct. 29th. We were at Wynngate (my parents and our joint real estate venture...) cleaning up the garage and the backyard. We started off with a dump that we filled with tons of junk the old renters left behind, and finished up the day by raking and bagging leaves. My sister is getting married in March 2012 and the time had come to order my bridesmaids dress - especially since the dress was about to get discontinued! I literally HAD to buy it in the next upcoming week. In the back of my head, I knew that there was a small chance that I could actually be pregnant now. I was late by about 3 or 4 days - which isn't terribly abnormal for me. More on my mind was the fact that we were really hoping to get pregnant sometime between now and March, so there was a chance I would need to order a larger dress. While we were at lunch at Subway, I told Jason we should probably stop at the Dollar Tree to get a cheap test (I had heard from other bloggers that the Dollar Store was the way to go for cheap yet accurate pregnancy tests). So we bought two and continued on with our day. As soon as we got home, I had to find out...and look what I found! Yup 2 lines = positive!
I've been secretly blogging about every week since we found out. Check out the now public posts here (Sorry, these include lots of me rambling, but I figured I might want to go back and read my pregnancy thoughts later on...) :
