This morning I took a pregnancy test, expecting it to be negative. I've taken many in the past couple of months but because I am still nursing I never expected them to come back positive. I started off with a cheap DollarTree one, and a very faint line showed up. I though NO WAY! I have to be seeing things, I thought, so I went into our bedroom and woke Paul up. I asked him to confirm what I was seeing. Sure enough he saw it too. We hugged and got teary eyed. I have never seen him wake up so fast, for those that know Paul you know that he takes a very long time to wake up. He asked me if I had a digital one to take to confirm. We didn't, so he got on his bike and rode off to Albertson's to buy one. He came home a few minutes later with the digital test and a bouquet of roses. I drank some water to recharge and went in to take the second test. Paul distracted me so I wouldn't sit there staring at the test. I went back in a few minutes later, which felt like hours, and sure enough it was positive. :)
We hugged and said oh crap and cried with joy. We are adding another bundle of joy into our family. We are so incredibly excited and feel so blessed and can't wait to meet our little frijol in 9ish months.
Once the news set in we let our siblings know.
