hokay so, about a week or two ago james and i both had a feeling i was pregnant. we could just tell. i can't really explain it, but we both just knew. i could feel changes, and i guess james could notice them, but being the great husband, he won't admit what they were! ha.

so i leave for new york (more on that coming up) and expected to have it confirmed while i was there. (follow me?) i almost called james and had him pick up a pregnancy test, but i figured we'd wait a few more days.

well he surprised me at the train station, i thought i was going to ride it myself. then when i got home i found he had painted our bedroom, so i wouldn't have to ingest any more fumes. then i went into the bathroom and he said "wait, i have something for you!"

yes, he had a two pack waiting for me. before i took it i was like "are you sure? you really want me to take this, because once i do, it's like we are really pregnant?!" he said "do you want to go have a beer first?!" ha!

so anyways, i did, pee, not have a beer. and there they were two pink lines. i took another a few hours later, and that made 4.

i really didn't think it was going to happen this fast. i told everyone we weren't really trying, but we weren't really preventing. what happens, happens...and it happened.

james is excited, it's what he wanted. i am too, but i think i am a bit more freaked out!

so here are a few pictures...

us, right after it was confirmed. me in shock. 4 pink lines. and my gut before this all begins. keep in mind i had just eaten ballpark food all weekend long! :) and the vomit green that i am standing in front of will be the nursery. we are adding wainscoting to the bottom half. james surprised me with that while i was gone too!
