Autumn Blog Challenge: I Was At Home When....

Two lines showed up on that little stick I peed on! Yep...that's right...I said I peed on a stick! Ok...it was a pregnancy test! I remember going to the grocery store....there's only one in town. The assistant manager (who is also our town mayor) had to unlock the case and grab the pregnancy test for me...I have to admit I was a little embarrassed...seems silly now. He wished me good luck!

I got home and went straight to the bathroom. Shane was at work and I hadn't told him I was late or that I was going to buy a pregnancy test. I guess I just didn't want him to get excited if it ended up being nothing. I had installed an app on my phone back in January of 2011 that allowed me to track my cycle and predicted when I would be ovulating...it said I was 4 days late. So I peed on that little stick and anxiously awaited.

A few minutes later I checked the results....and I couldn't believe my eyes....there were 2 lines and I was pregnant! I got this huge ear-to-ear grin on my face, I laughed, and then I cried...happy tears! I paced around the house excitedly. I was trying to decide if I should call Shane, visit him at work, wait til he got home from work...instead I ended up going the 21st century route...I took a picture of the pregnancy test and texted it to his phone. Hehe! He called me right away and asked me if the 2 lines means I'm pregnant. He was definitely in shock but very happy. We had been trying and it was such a happy day! I took another test just to make sure....and grinned, laughed, and cried some more. Then I took a few more because every time I saw those 2 lines I just got giddy all over!

We went grocery shopping a few days later and ran into the assistant manager/mayor and we told him the fantastic news! Imogene Elizabeth was born March 17th, 2012 weighing 6 lbs 8oz and 20 inches long. Our little Irish Rose has red hair too!

Immie at 4 months!

Where were you when you found out you were pregnant?

  1. Oh so cute. I know when I told my husband we were pregnant I swear he was going to faint. Even though we had been trying for a while. It is hard to imagine it any other way now

  2. It's good that you had that kind of experience. My husband (I am divorced now) went around telling people that I thought I was pregnant after my pregnancy test. It took our midwife telling him that there is no way you can have a false positive, only a false negative.

  3. I remember getting the news from my wife! I was told to come home and that's when I found out! So exciting!
