We found out I was pregnant shortly after Labor Day. We were trying to get pregnant, so when I missed my time of the month, I took five tests; all of them were negative. When I didn’t get it for almost two more weeks, we decided maybe I should take a another test, especially since I was having awful stomach aches. We went to the store and bought two boxes (2 tests each). We came home and I started cooking hot dogs on the stove for lunch. While the hot dogs were cooking, I took test #1 and it was a success. We celebrated and cried and then I thought, let me take another to make sure. So I did, and it was also a winner. But then I thought, well maybe this box is defective, so I opened the other box, third times a charm. I finally believed the tests after the third one came out positive and then we sat down and ate some hot dogs to celebrate.
We took some photos right away to capture the moment, and then we took some more over the next couple weeks, thinking I was a lot further along than I actually was. I originally thought I was due May 6th and in reality, I am due May 19.
Most of my inspiration came from random blogs I found on Pinterest, and a few Jim and I thought of ourselves. He will be my awesome photographer throughout my entire pregnancy.
And I leave you with this little gem of a video from Full House when Rebecca tells Jessie she is pregnant. It’s a classic.
