(In the time I've been pregnant, I've written a few posts so now is the time to let them out! This was written on 2/20/11.)
I feel like the little girl on "Father of the Bride" when she's sitting at the kitchen table ... "I met a man and we're gonna get married" ... except it's "I'm 24 and still feel like I'm 12 and we're having a baby."
On Tuesday, February 15th, I took a pregnancy test for no reason whatsoever. It was positive. I showed it to Colt. He was quiet ... then he smiled. I said, "Well, one line is a different shade than the other so I bet it's not really positive." I read the instructions and they proved me wrong. Welllll okay!
We wanted to double check but had no more tests. So, we drove to Walgreens at about 11:30 at night. I took another one. Positive. I took another one that next morning just to triple check ... Positive.
We have been married for over 2 years and felt like we were in the place in our lives where a baby would certainly be welcome, so we are pleasantly surprised and very excited!
This happens to be THE busiest time of a vocal music teacher's life ... preparing choirs for 3 different contests, entering students in solo/ensemble contest, preparing for spring concert, and rehearsing for the musical after school every single day. I hardly even remember that I'm even pregnant most of the time! And, of course, not telling people makes it feel even less real.
I really can't believe we're going to be parents!
