Since I’ve been mute for the past 4+ months (sorry!), I wanted to share with you all how things have gone the first 19 weeks of my pregnancy! Let’s start with how I told the husband since that’s fun and we don’t need to talk about puke and constipation today, now do we? We’ll save that fun for another day.
I found out on a Sunday, which happened to also be my nephew’s first birthday. I woke up around 6 am that morning and knowing we had really good timing that month, I was anxious to take a test. Voila! Positive! The husband was still sleeping so I went downstairs and watched The Bachelor (Juan Pablo says, “Oh a baby?! Eeesss OK”).
I wanted to tell the husband in a creative way so I decided to make him a “ticket” to “Opening Day of Parenthood”. One of our first dates was to opening day of the Phillies so I thought it’d be cute. I found a template online and went to work. That’s about as creative as I get.
I was getting excited so around 8 am I went upstairs and woke his ass up. I handed him the envelope and he said, “Ohhh, did you get a positive?” I told him to just open it and when he did he laughed and said, “How ’bout that?!” He always says dorky things at big moments…when we had our first look on our wedding day his reaction was “I like your outfit.” He’s going to rule at Dad Jokes. 🙂
So that’s the fun stuff. I’ll post in the next week or so about the diabetes related stuff and first trimester.
