how we got here...

thank you so much for all your sweet comments on our big news yesterday! we are so excited for this baby and feel so blessed.

around october adam and I started throwing around the idea of having a baby. we decided we would go off birth control in december and just "see what happens". with the type of birth control I had we had to wait 2 months before we could try so march was our first real month of "trying". we kept saying that we would be happy if we got pregnant by the end of the summer, but apparently god had different plans for us because we got pregnant the first month haha

randomly on march 27th I decided to take a test after work just to see. well turns out there was super faint line! I decided to take another one in the morning to see if it was any darker. it was. I knew I wanted to take a digital test just to be sure before I told adam though, so I tried to go to the grocery store before work but none were open.  let me just say having to go to work the day you find out your pregnant should be illegal because all I wanted to do was run out of that school so fast and go take a test!! after school I went to target and bought a digital test and took that thing right there in the target bathroom ha! after what seemed like a million minutes it popped up saying I was indeed pregnant. I went back out and bought a onesie and a "happy birthday dad" card to give to adam that night.



since adam's birthday was the following tuesday I told him I wanted to give him his present early. he literally had NO IDEA. it was so fun to see him open the present and figure out what it meant. we decided to go over to my parent's house and tell them right away. it was such a fun night of sharing such great news : )

I'm not going to lie it has been a HARD few months for me. I have been sick sick sick, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I am so excited to be a mommy and just praying the second trimester treats me better ; )
