I got a BFP on a FRER yesterday, but the line was faint and I always like to do at least 2 tests after my experience in 2006 (false positive on a cheep brand that later got recalled--long story) and that one was my last test, so I picked up a digital last night, took it this morning, and there it was..."pregnant." I kept it to myself yesterday, with it being April Fools Day, I didn't want people to think it was a joke, plus I hadn't told DH yet--I wanted to tell him in a fun way and I really wanted him to be the first to know. Here's what I did:
I had mentioned a while ago that I wanted to try to make cinnamon rolls (I had never made them before). I did this recipe, so I started them yesterday. This morning, after I put them in the oven, I sat next to him on the couch and said "The buns are in the oven!" He gave me a questioning look, and then said "And they're not the only buns in the oven!" and pulled the two pregnancy tests out of my pocket! It was awesome! I told him that I'm due in mid-December. His first reaction was excitement, and a compliment on my cleverness, and then he started talking about how we have to get a new car and how we won't be traveling for Christmas this year.
I wasn't really expecting to get pregnant so soon (we were not preventing for about 6 months before we conceived both DD and DS), but I am excited about it. None of my pregnancies have ever been the kind of thing where I was aiming to have a baby born a certain month, and I believe this pregnancy at this time is what God wants for us.
No facebook or blog comments, please (I think I will wait to announce it on my blog until we are ready to tell everyone, because I have a link to my blog on facebook).
Wow Congrats!!! And I totally love how you told hubby! I wish I had thought of something special instead of standing in the house screaming it at him when he was sitting on the front porch... Wow... now that I type that out it looks worse than I thought! LOL It was happy screaming? at least? LOL *shuts up before she makes herself look worse*
