Today was our 20 week ultrasound, which we schedule for our second wedding anniversary.  We’ve been joking that we are never going to beat this for our anniversary, and it was even better than we imagined.  We’ve spent most of the day alternately laughing and crying with joy.  I know I keep saying this, but I don’t know how we are going to wait another 20 weeks (at least!) for our little guy to join us.

In bonus news:  we have another ultrasound at 28 weeks!!

I was sure that I wasn’t pregnant.

But Sarah thought that I was.  What with the mood swings and the zits and the crazy dreams and the sore boobs.  Her Sarah-sense was tingling.  So I promised to consult the talking pee stick, but was sure that it was just going to be negative, like all the ones before it.*

Due to scheduling reasons, I had dropped Jeff off at work the the night before and so had to pick him up in the morning.  I meant to get up at the unholy hour of 5:30 a.m. to get him when he got off at 6, but I must have turned the alarm off when it sounded, and didn’t wake up until 6:15.  Whoops.  Called Jeff to tell him that I slept in, but was on my way, and ran downstairs.

I waffled for a minute as to whether to take the test, but grabbed one out of the drawer and went for it.

Positive Pregnany Test

There was NO QUESTION.  That sucker showed positive before I even got the cap on and set it back on the counter.** Of course, I thought I was seeing things, so I wandered around the house for a couple of minutes and went back to check.

Totally positive.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wasn’t sure how I was going to drive over to the U to get Jeff, but I knew that I had to.  My hands were shaking all the way over there, and I couldn’t decide how to tell him.  It was too early to come up with something creative, but I knew that I couldn’t NOT tell him until I found a better way.

I got to his building, and pulled into a parking space.  He got in the car, gave me a hug, and I whispered in his ear, “You’re going to be a daddy.”

To which he replied, “NO WAY!”

I had to convince him that the test had indeed made the right lines together, and that would explain the crazy that I had perpetrated the day before (poor guy).  I don’t think he fully believed it until he saw the test and we talked to my OB’s office, and were assured that if the test said we were pregnant, we were pregnant.

It’s amazing how your life can change in just one minute.

*What a racket those things are.  They come two to a package, because they know that no matter what the first one says, you aren’t going to believe it, and you are going to immediately use the other one instead of saving it for next month.  Boo to Big Pee Stick.

**However, this was not the one that showed positive.  This is the one from the next day that Jeff asked me to take so he could see it turn positive too.  He’s so cute.
