Q: How did you find out you were pregnant?
A: Matt and I had been trying for a few months, and I knew it was the earliest possible day that I could test and get an outcome. We all know I had tested before that day though... just because I'm impatient! I tested on a Sunday, and then knew I couldn't test again until Tuesday. That morning I did a test and saw just one line, so I thought... oh well, too early again. I put the strip aside and started to "put my face on." I glanced down a few minutes later and saw a very faint second line. I'm talking very faint. So I took another one and got another faint line. I called Matt and told him, trying not to get my hopes up. I then called my sister-in-law Grace to see if she would be able to drive E and I to the store to pick up real pregnancy tests. (I had strips that they use in a hospital.) I also didn't want to be alone for the next test, so it was really nice to have Grace. We grabbed more tests, and also some grub on the way home. I couldn't even wait to take the test to eat, so I took one, then we waited. It was a digital test, so this way there wouldn't be a question about it. All of the sudden..."yes" came on the screen. YES! I was pregnant! It was so surreal and wonderful! Matt came home early and we told our families right away!
Q: How far along are you?
A: 14 weeks
Q: When are you due?
A: Sometime between September 29-Oct. 1. We've gotten a few different dates. The later the better!
Q: Where will you deliver?
A:Park Nicollet in St. Louis Park.
Q: Are you going to find out what you're having?
A:Yep. We aren't the kind of people who can wait, and we think it's still a great surprise to find out. And this way... I can get my craft on and plan the nursery, make clothes and bibs, and all of the family can go crazy. :)
Q: Have you chosen any names?
A: Yep. But I'd like to keep them to ourselves until we know. :)
Q: How have you been feeling?
A: Better. My first trimester was super hard. Mornings are still a little hard for me, but thankfully they gave me Zofran this time (I'm sure this blog can be a testimony for that brand... yeesh!) so I've been feeling much better. Always super tired, and sometimes crabby.
Q: How has Matt been feeling??
A: I think overwhelmed at times. I think he does so much with work, taking care of Ellie, and then having to take care of me. He's probably tired of eating small snack-y meals since that's all I ever want to eat. :)
