One of many first issues Adam and I talked about on our first date was how a lot our households imply to us and the way essential it was to every of us that we needed to start out a household of our personal.
After we obtained married, we knew we needed to attend a bit bit earlier than attempting to have youngsters, however not too lengthy. Adam was 37 and I used to be 31 after we obtained married and when you get pregnant at 35, it’s thought of a “geriatric” being pregnant, so we began speaking fairly significantly about after we needed to start out attempting on our first marriage ceremony anniversary (June 2019).
On August sixteenth, 2019, we went out for Chinese language meals and had egg drop soup as a result of Adam was satisfied that will assist the method alongside (I like that man!). 😂
The Day We Discovered Out We Have been Pregnant
And, on the morning of September 1st, I took my first being pregnant take a look at.
Oh, I used to be so nervous! I’d fitfully slept the evening earlier than, having actually unusual desires about taking a bunch of being pregnant assessments however not having the ability to see the outcomes. I awoke early and snuck to the lavatory with the take a look at.
I really wasn’t anticipating to be pregnant so quickly, so once I took the take a look at, I used to be a ball stuffed with nerves, however I used to be prepared to simply accept no matter consequence the take a look at gave. And I’d splurged on the assessments that really say the phrases “Pregnant” or “Not Pregnant” in order that there wouldn’t be any confusion with blurry coloured traces.
And, lo and behold, the take a look at confirmed that we had been pregnant!
I instantly obtained all teary eyed and shaky and couldn’t wait one other minute to inform Adam.
I’d ordered these cute “Large Brother” bandanas for Boots to put on to inform Adam. I’d considered a bunch of cute methods I may plan to inform him (like the entire baby-themed dinner thought from Full Home), however I truthfully simply couldn’t maintain the information in lengthy sufficient to drag any of them off!
So, I shortly grabbed the red-checkered bandana and shakily tied it round Boots’ neck and went straight in to wake Adam up.
I gently shook Adam to wake him up and I simply sat there on the mattress with Boots sitting subsequent to me carrying his pink bandanna. It took Adam a second to get up and browse it, however when he did, he simply checked out me and stated, “Are you?”
I couldn’t get any phrases out at that time, so I simply nodded as my eyes stuffed up with tears (once more). He reached out and hugged me and simply saved asking, “Actually?!”
Shock. Awe. And it was every kind of fantastic.
We noticed my household later that day for our weekly household dinner and it killed me to maintain a secret from them, however I knew I needed to plan a particular strategy to announce our being pregnant to them!

So, I put the being pregnant take a look at in a present field and we waited with nice anticipation till my dad obtained to our present.
And Adam caught the second on video!
My dad’s response of, “I’m pregnant!” nonetheless cracks me up! 😂
It doesn’t really feel fully actual to us, nevertheless it’s slowly sinking in. We’re going to have a child. We’re going to be mother and father. And it’s a lifelong dream come true for each of us.
